How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

This theme cache is located on Daniel Island, SC. The listed coordinates will take you to an empty spot on a sidewalk where there was formerly a canon with 4 canon balls stacked underneath. The cache is not located at this spot, but you can answer letter C from here. You've also, just been given the answer to the clue for letter E, but the other clues may require some research!

CLUES FOR THE FINAL CACHE COORDINATES:

N 32 52.ABC
W 079 55.DEF

A = The number of letters in the nickname of Sir Edson Arantes do Nascimento MINUS 2. Among his multitude of accomplishments, he is credited with coining the phrase "The Beautiful Game."

B = The number of players who start on a traditional full-size field for each team in The Beautiful Game MINUS 3.

C = The number of letters in the home team's name that plays in the stadium at the listed coordinates MINUS 6.

D = The number of referees (in the 3 man officiating system) actually ON THE FIELD OF PLAY during a match in The Beautiful Game.

E = The number of balls stacked below the object that formerly lived at the listed coordinates MINUS 3.

F = The number of letters in the name of the country who's national team won the most World Cup titles in the Twentieth Century MINUS 4.

The final cache is in a large ammo box, which contains items that are related to The Beautiful Game theme. Please trade even or up, when possible. During home games (about 20 per year), there could be high muggle activity, but most of the time, you're muggle free. Also, during home games, you may have to pay for parking. The cache was placed with permission by a representative of the facility. Good Luck!
