Featured Geocacher of the Month Nominees – Add Your Comments

September's Featured Geocacher of the Month, SuperGoober

Last month the geocaching community voted SuperGoober as the September Featured Geocacher of the Month. According to those who nominated him, “he is a model geocacher which all of us in the area and beyond can be proud of. He is always willing to lend advice/help to any cacher that approaches him or contacts him.”

The featured Geocacher of the Month recognition celebrates geocachers for their contributions to the activity.  A panel of Lackeys had the difficult task of selecting three of the most outstanding nominees. Now it’s your turn to help name one of these nominees the featured October “Geocacher of the Month.”

Nomination by Ceddy:

“seping is a very active geocacher, he lives in Catalonia / Spain, in his native [country] many geocachers know him! He has found more than 18,000 caches all over the world and has over 240 caches hidden!
seping also already has organized two Mega-Events, including the recent Mega Catlunya 2011, and brought together geocachers from around the world. I met seping. He’s a very friendly and helpful man, and I think that’s he’s seen similarly by many other people.”

Coast2coast2coast + Zoe

Nomination by adventureseeking3:

“They have hosted multiple events, hidden excellent caches, all at various levels of difficulty, and are always aiding fellow cachers when in need. Tom currently serves in the Canadian armed forces so not only is he promoting geocaching here in BC, Canada, but he is also contributing world wide. They head up a local organization, Mid Island Geocaching that just recently had a summer end event “The Geo-Poker Rally” which was held in conjunction with Our local BCGA year end Blitz. Even though he is currently overseas on a mission supporting world peace, he is still staying in contact and helping people back home who geocache. They are both very dedicated and very well respected in the community.”

Nomination by Mrs.Hoagie:

“Around Chester County PA, caches by bpp_picnic are notorious for their unique locations and even more interesting camouflage.  bpp_picnic hosts a great event at the Brandywine Picnic Park (his family’s place) every September, and though his park, Big Red (his truck), and the event were flooded out this year by all the rain in SE Pennsylvania, bpp_picnic was still gracious enough to feed those of us who showed up with his amazing bbq pork and brisket.”

  1. C2C2C2 Cograts on the nonamation.. Been to few of your events, the best. Hope you win ans you deserve it..Paulboy

  2. Not sure what all the drama is about but it does not surprise me that someone has to take what is supposed to  be a Fun time and turn it into something hateful and negative. i have seen some people nominated that I could have said all kinds of negative things about and all of what I had to say was true but I kept it to myself. I was happy to see that they did not win and I’m sure that the person who did deserved it more than some of the other nominees. I didn’t have anything nice to say so I didn’t say anything at all and I think that’s the way it should be on this page. Vote for whoever you want and tell everybody the great things you know about the person you vote for and keep the negative off this page. 

  3. Coast2Coast2Coast+Zoe get my vote. He’s done a lot to promote the sport of Geocaching in this province. Good to have you back!

  4. I appears Groundspeak  had a tough time with their selection this month – three worthy people.  We know coast2coast2coast and Zoe –  and for all they have done for the caching community, and for all the help and kind words to new and experienced cachers, c2c2c and Zoe get our vote.  Happy caching to all.

  5. Congratulations C2C2C, on your nomination for Cacher of the month.
    We appreciate all that you do for and in the caching community and I
    want to add my vote for C2C2C to the many. Good Luck.

  6. Coast2coast2coast gets my vote. I have attended a few of his events and they are well organized and a lot of fun.

  7. Congrats to Coast2Coast2coast on your nomination, you have helped out so many people when it comes to geocaching, including myself. You get my vote…….

  8. Coast2coast2coast has tirelessly promoted the social aspects of caching through co-founding and participating in the Mid Island Geocaching organization and by serving on the board of the British Columbia Geocachers Association.
      Through these organizations they have championed Geocachers rights nation wide and fought for a number of important initiatives among which, the cooperation of provincial and national parks in allowing caches to be placed at these locations.
     They have been geocaching for more than for 9 years, promoting and supporting all aspects of the geocaching community.
    They certainly deserve this recognition and more.

  9. Our vote is for Coast2coast2coast as well.
    We have known them for years and they epitomize the virtues of great Geocachers.
     They set an excellent example to other cachers and tirelessly promote the benefits of geocaching by promotion at local sport and activity fairs, giving geocaching classes to kids at school hobby discovery days, and mentoring new cachers.
      They have hosted more than 10 events over the years including co-hosting what may be the first Mega event held in British Columbia called Island Spirit scheduled for next summer on Vancouver Island.

  10. My vote goes to Seping. The only thing to do to understand this vote is to read the attended logs at the recent Mega event Catalunya 2011 (GC2KH4V), and if you want to know more, pls read the logs of Mega event Catalunya 2010 (GC20HXJ

  11. coast2coast2coast has my vote!
    He’s a really great guy who I’ve had a chance to meet a few times. He’s got lots of enthusiasm and is a great guy… plus I’ve heard his events he hosted were all awesome.

  12. We would like to add our vote for Coast2Coast2Coast and Zoe…always friendly and helpful…their caches are always well thought out and sometimes have a bit of a twist which keeps geocaching fun.

  13. Coast2 coast gets my vote. He gets asked to teach students at our local college and makes sure everyone even with disabilities can learn this wonderful hobbie/sport

  14. My vote goes to seping!!!
    Any Cacher willing to place 264 Great hides in four years gets my vote!

  15. nous votons pour Seping, car il aime les chansons sur le geocaching et il a fait une super chorale pour le super mega qu’il a organisé .
    Equipe PLONGE29

  16. We vote for Coast2Coast2Coast! Like others have stated the Coast2Coast2Coast family are always friendly, helpful and place fun caches!
