The Summer of 2014 will feature a hiding challenge known as ‘Preform Madness’.
What is a preform, you ask? It is a small plastic cylindrical container (see picture) that exists in a form before it is heated and expanded into a 2L soda pop container. The hard plastic is virtually indestructible and with the bottle cap in place, the log book will stay completely dry.
Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to hide a preform! The challenge rules are as follows.
Beware the Jabbywockyz, my son! The jaws that bite, the claws that catch! Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun the frumious Bandersnatch!
(Holy Dinah! I just scared myself!)
I haven't cached in the Dauphin area since 2007. Back then there were 3 (yes, three) whole caches in town. All of which were hidden by the Dragonfreys who lived an hour south in Onanole. This surprised me to no end as Dauphin is the largest town in the area, and Swan River (the next largest town) had dozens of caches! Well, it seems that things have changed and the cache hides are coming fast and furious! And now there's GeoArt in the province! Well done!!
"'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves did gyre and gimble in the wabe; All mimsy were the borogoves, and the mome raths outgrabe." What Lewis Carroll is trying to say here is: Congratulations and read on to learn more about the MBGA Geocachers of the Month, Jabbywockyz!
