Good news, not so good news and more uh, good news! Very Happy

Okay, the not so good news. The original plan was to have the contest wrapped up and prizes given out at GeoVenture. The problem I ran into is that I have had way too much on my plate since this contest ended as I've been preparing for GeoVenture. Oddly enough, even with being off for the summer, I think I've been busier than when I was working! (Okay, I have managed to find a few caches here and there, fortunately.)

So, as a result, I was not able to do any sort of scoring for the entrants. Everyone and your cache that was entered into the contest deserve quality attention to this system and not a 'throw them into a hat and draw a name' system. You put effort into your hides and deserve it.

So the good news part!

So after getting some feedback from the board, here's what the plan is.

- There will be no judging at this stage and no winners declared at GeoVenture.

- The contest will be re-opened until the end of September, another 6 weeks of hiding! (That's great news for kids who like to find these!)

- To keep it fair for those who entered on time in July, there will be two winners declared, one for July and one for the August/September session.

- Judging will happen in October, after the close of the second session.

- Winners will be announced at the October Halloween event. That date is TBA

I do apologize to everyone who was expecting to have a wrap up to this contest this weekend.

--

Bring on more fun hides now!

GC4NPV3 Quintessential Cache for KIDS

Obviously we love hiding caches that are kid-friendly Very Happy although it may be time for Xplorer to hide a bit more 'evil' cache again soon.

With apologies to everyone who participated in this challenge, we announced the winners at the Holiday Party tonight. Originally we planned to do this at the Halloween event, but that event was not held, so this was the next big gathering.

So for part 1 (July) the winner is GeoJoe's GC4FF J2 KIDS: May DForce be with you. (hands down, that R2D2 Model was on top of everyone's list.)

Part 2 sees two winners as they fall in two categories that are hard to judge against each other.

Winner 1 is Xplorer and Ramblin' Rose for GC4NPV Quintessential Cache for KIDS.

Winner 2 is GeoJoe again with GC4N7FB KIDS: OMAND's riparian ditch.


Congratulations you guys! Please contact me and we'll arrange for a prize choice at an upcoming event.
