Trying to combine my two favorite past times!
Past finds do count.
As fantasy football is fast approaching, I was thinking about how I could combine my two favorite past times. So, I came up with this challenge! Feel free to team up with other cachers or challenge them to see who can score the most in a day.
In order to post a smile, you must "draft" players (cachers) with the most hides to move the ball with at least 100 big plays!
Only one Cache Owner (CO) can be used per day.
All finds must be on the same day.
You must move the "ball" at least 100 "big plays"!
To draft a team, find caches where the Cache Owner (CO) has hidden (just total hides, active plus archived total):
2,000+ hides: 20 big plays in a single game!
501-2,000 hides: 15 big plays
101-500 hides: 10 big plays
21-100 hides: 5 big plays
6-20 hides: 2 big plays
1-5 hides: 1 big play
That means that you found caches by 20+1+2+1=24 different cache owners!
Caches can be ANY type.
As an example.
On 8/28/2012 I scored 100 big plays by:
Finding 20 caches with 1-5 hides (20 caches x 1 big play = 20 big plays)
Finding 1 cache with 2,000 hides (1 caches x 20 big plays = 20 big plays)
Finding 2 caches with 501-2K hides (2 caches x 15 big plays = 30 big plays)
Finding 1 caches with 101-500 hides (3 caches x 10 big plays = 30 big plays)
WHEN posting, please post you final score for the day plus an image of the caches found.
As a slight twist, I added a leaderboard for those who over achieve. I will update it periodically. Even after you've found the cache, if you want to post a note with a higher score. ;-)
