Scruffster: I think everyone who attended has now posted so it's time to put this event to bed. Thanks everyone. Perhaps we'll do it again next year.

Geocache Description:

Turbo Charged and Skunk Powered, it's the...

This rally will take you on an exciting adventure to several scenic locations.  The entire route should take the average team approximately four to five hours to complete.  It will test your physical and mental endurance.  Be prepared!


Thanks everyone. All spots are taken and we're all ready to go.
What you will need:

Cell phone
Digital Camera

The Starting point will be at Confederation Park in North Burnaby at the Lawn Bowling Parking Lot. The first car will leave at 8:45 and all other cars will leave at five minute intervals thereafter.  Each car will have one team.  A maximum of 20 cars will be allowed.  For this reason, we encourage geocachers to carpool to allow as many people as possible to enjoy this exciting event.

This is a timed rally. The team that completes the route in the least amount of time will win.  There will be tasks along the way.  Only a few waypoints will be park and grab.  Be prepared to do a certain amount of walking or running, and yes, even thinking. There will be penalties and rewards.

By posting a "will attend" note on this cache page, you will be assigned the next available start time.  The rally will take place rain or shine. So we ask that you remain committed to participate once you post a "will attend" note.  Please be at Confederation Park at least ten minutes BEFORE your start time.

Prize Donations:

We ask that each team bring a prize no less than $10.00 as an entrance fee. However, we would be very grateful if the cars that are filled up donate additional prizes or rally together for a more extravagant prize. The prize table will depend exclusively on donations from the contestants themselves.


To help pay for the cost of putting on this elaborate event, we will be serving BBQ at the final waypoint. For the price of $5 you will get your choice of:

1 Bavarian Smokie or
2 hotdogs or
2 veggie dogs.

1 pop or bottled water and snacks will be included in the price.

Thanks to everyone helping out for this event and good luck to all the participants.
