Cache Splash 2007 Finale

MBGA Cache Splash

Thanks to all Manitoba Geocachers on a successful spring of hiding 170 great new Splashy caches and all the enjoyable finds over the summer.

The final totals are in and the top hiders are OHMIC with 86 points, Granny Lois with 80 points and junglehair with 46 points. Lagavulin had a perfect guess of the number splash caches, while slippery_1 hid the largest cache. OHMIC's Splashen Sie Deutsch? was voted the best splash cache name, while Lizardo's CSI:Winnipeg - SPLASH! was voted the best Splash Cache.

Congrats to everyone.

  1. How did you find out about Geocaching?

  2. I found out about geocaching when I was at a client’s house near Assiniboine Park and mentioned that I liked to walk throughout the forest. They brought out a map with caches they had found in the forest and immediately I could see this would be ideal for me, walking with a goal.

  3. What was it about geocaching that got you hooked into the game?

  4. The finds, definitely the finds. There is nothing better than hunting for a cache, looking for spots that seem not right and just knowing the cache is under or around that spot.
