Here are the results of the 2012 MACH Contest.

To make things fair for cachers outside of Winnipeg, I added a Distance Index. You get a bump up on points the further you are away from city centre. This was to assist in balancing the fact that there are more cachers finding Winnipeg caches than country caches.

I dock points for each DNF on a cache. I also bump up points if the cache is overly large, and remove non-premium finds from the calculation since they're not able to contribute to the favourite points.



The final results are:





Congratulations to:

3rd Place: crackerjackie & tuppergurl (MACH 1 Night Cache - GC41WGF)
2nd Place: Gunnerwalker90 (Jumping to Conclusions (At MACH 1 - GC40DC8)

1st Place: klblue (One Puzzling MACH - GC425Z0)

One of your caches came in 8th ... which beat out Glacier_ice, so you're doing pretty good by my reckoning.

Wait, I did that. Gotta hide 2 bodies next time? I need a bigger box!
