The winner receives this month’s vintage ‘barely coveted prize.” It’s a medium sized t-shirt from a 2010 geocaching event organized by Lackeys. It celebrates the 25th anniversary of the movie Goonies.

More than two dozen Lackeys voted to award the winner of the 32nd Geocaching.com Caption Contest a barely coveted prize. It was winter-themed – and coincidentally the voting took place on May 4th. [The joke goes, “May the 4th be with you.”] Perhaps not so coincidentally, a Star Wars-themed caption won.

  • Since the first geocache was hidden on May 3, I would think it was found on May 4 ??? So I think the slogan should be “May the 4th Be with you :-)”
