I just tried three times to enter some caches found on Feb 1 & 2. But they were not accepted. An error message was posted saying "The contest period is over". Anybody else getting the same response?

When do you need to enter your finds? Some of the caches may have more than one option, so waiting to see where they fit best may be a good idea.

We'll close the entry form about a week after the close of the contest. This gives everyone a chance to make the entries. Any caches found after the close of the contest will be ineligible .

I went to log my first Cache for Battle ship GC43HQ5 only to find out that H and Q are not on the grid. Crying or Very sad I hope that other caches in my area are eligible.

I just had a peek at some of the caches and yes, there are a number that are.

Don't forget, if you hide caches during the contest period, they count too. (Provided you're lucky enough to get a GC code that fits the grid)

I accidentally entered a wrong hit coordinate, is there any way to fix it? I sent an email directly to Glacier_ice with the details.

Thanks
