This is a quick announcement to inform you that October will be the Month of Ammo Can Hides! The game and rules still need to be defined and we still need a good acronym. (I don't think MOAC works very well.) We wanted to give you a heads up that it's coming so that you can raid Princess Auto for their Ammo Cans.

We can tell you this much...

Rule #1: The hide must be an Ammo Can.
Rule #2: If the cache container is bigger than an Ammo Can, we may be awarding extra points. (Just put the ammo can on the inside!)
Rule #3: The hide may NOT be a micro Ammo Can. Save those for the next return of MOE.

Not a rule, but a point. This contest may cover both October and November. This hasn't been finalized yet.

There might also be extra points if your Ammo Can can fit a Turdle inside. Actually, that might just win you the game, hands down.

Stay tuned for more details! (Some of those details may be stuck inside a rusty ammo can...)

Maybe you should call it MACE -- the Month of Ammo Cans Everywhere.
Or MACH -- the Month of Ammo Can Hides.
MACHO -- Month of Ammo Cans Hidden Outdoors

Hmmm, MACH does have a ring to it...

This would be MACH 1

Haha, I just posted something about MACH 1 on Twitter the other day, it was suggested by another person that MACH (Month of Ammo Can Hides) was a good name, and I said I liked it, cause October's could be MACH 1, and if you decide to do another one, it could be MACH 2, and so on...

MACH gets my vote.

MACH 1 has received official status.

The game will run until the last day of November. More details still to come as soon as I figure them out.

We DO need a naming rule, however, so that all qualifying hides can be identified.

So... each Ammo Can hide that a Geocacher wants to include in the contest must include MACH

ie Caramel MACHiato. (Feel free to use it, it just came to me. Your payment? One Starbucks Caramel Macchiato)

Hmm, actually, that might be it.

Rule #1: The hide must be an Ammo Can.
Rule #2: If the cache container is bigger than an Ammo Can, we may be awarding extra points. (Just put the ammo can on the inside!)
Rule #3: The hide may NOT be a micro Ammo Can. Save those for the next return of MOE.
Rule #4: each Ammo Can hide that a Geocacher wants to include in the contest must include "MACH" in the name somehow.

Just like last year, the scoring will include some odd combinations of favourite points, numbers, letters and random dice throws.

Dani Carriere has graciously offered to scorekeep again this year, just like she did for last year's MOE contest.

Winners will be announced/drawn for at the Christmas event. This will give everyone's hides plenty of time to be found and raved about.

Hehe...

Simply put, the Months of October and November are a hiding challenge dedicated to Ammo Cans.

You must hide a new Ammo Can cache to enter. Rules as above. Smile
