This cache has been archived.

GeoKs: Mr. GeoK has retrieved the cache. Funny....it was all there (tool, combination lock) and in proper working order. However, even though it was grandfathered as a pre-existing cache under the City of Calgary placement guidelines, it was a little offside on a couple of points, so we decided to archive it anyhow. But since it's in great working order, we'll try to find another location for this one at some point in the future.

Geocache Description:

CACHE IS AT THE POSTED COORDINATES. However, once you spot this “in plain sight” cache, you will have to locate and use a special retrieval tool hidden very nearby the cache in order to retrieve the container and sign the log. PLEASE DON’T CLIMB THE TREE!


Spotting this “in plain sight” cache should be easy. But retrieving it to sign the log will require keen observation skills and utilization of a cache retrieval tool hidden very near the posted coordinates. Once you have found the retrieval tool, you must search for the number combination to unlock it. The number combination is available near the cache or you can check the hint.

More adventurous geocachers may be tempted to climb the tree to retrieve the container, but there’s absolutely no need to do so. In fact, in keeping with the spirit in which this cache was conceived, we ask that you please NOT climb the tree!

Once you have the retrieval tool in hand think magnets! To prevent the cache from retracting to its hiding spot while you sign the log and look through the swag, we’ve installed a caribiner clip that you can fasten to the small wooden stake we’ve installed at the base of the tree.

Please be sure the container is properly seated in its hiding spot when you’re through. Also, replace and re-lock the retrieval tool so it’s available for the use by the next finder.

Parking is available at the dead end on 24th Street SW. Commuters who walk and bike frequent the nearby pathway, so depending on the day and time you visit, there may be lots of muggles going by.

NOTE: This cache is for the CCARS09 event, and should not be sought out until after 5:30 pm on September 25th, 2009 and any logs before that will be deleted. CCARS09 caches are published the evening before to give everyone the chance to look at the cache listings, solve puzzles and devise their battle plans before the hunt begins.
