Geocache Description:


THE sp"RING" Bash (September 2007)
DATE: Sunday 9th September 2007

Firstly we'd like to say a HUGE thanks to everyone who came along. We were expecting about 100 people and the turn out phenomenal with 111 people (with 3 teams at the last moment not being able to make it). I am going to keep it short and simple so below are the interesting statistics for those who want to see it all and the positions of all the winners. There were 33 teams overall.

For those of you who want a list of the TB numbers, please drop me an email and I will forward you the list of numbers that you can discover. Please give me a short while to get this in order. You can drop an email to " geo@crystalfairy.co.za " with any comments (positive or negative) so that the next event (which is a while away - we think its time some other teams let us compete for a while :-) ) can be even better.

Finally a BIG thanks to "The Ring ", "GSAK", "Ananzi", "Tracks 4 Africa" and "Magicom" (in no particular order) for making this event possible and for sponsoring all the incredible prizes along with people teams like LeonW and Not Blonde and fellow cachers from Canada sponsoring hampers and geo-coins.

We thought we would share a few "general knowledge" answers with you from the results and the team names. (Just for fun)
