The 2007 Canberra Caching Game
From Tuesday 20th of November, 25 already existing TRADITIONAL caches in and around the city [~5km] will contain tickets that will be used for some of the Main Event prize draws. The game will work as follows.
This map shows the area that the caches used are in : [with the lighter area being the game area]
25 pre-existing Traditional caches within this area will be supplied with tickets before the 20th. It is up to you to find the caches first and retrive the tickets in order to have the most points at the end of the game [the event], or get at least one ticket to go into the prize draw.
A 'FTF'(First Ticket Find) will recieve 3 points, (you take the 'FTF' ticket) and all subsequent finds of the cache will result in 1 point, until the cache is exhausted of tickets.
1. Once you 'FTF' you are required to post a note on the cache page to indicate this (so other cachers will know where it is).
2. You may only take one ticket per cache (obviously)
Prizes will be awarded to the cacher with the most points, and the rest of the tickets will be put into a prize draw for other prizes, which include Unactivated Travel Bug tags, Geocaching Pins, an ammo box cache, and many more.
Thanks to all the cache owners whose caches we placed tickets in.
Have Fun, hope to see you there!
