2009 Cachemas Prize Cache

We are proud to announce the 2009 NoVAGO Cachemas series with this cache brought to you by 12 of your NoVAGO friends.

We are pleased to present “The 12 Days of Cachemas”, a cache series running from December 25 to January 5 modeled after a familiar Christmas song. Starting on December 25th, one new cache in this series will be released each day, until “The 12 Days of Cachemas” song is complete. Each cache in this series will contain clues. Collect all clues and figure out the location of the prize cache with some very special prizes.

The following NoVAGO 2009 Cachemas caches are part of the series:

For the first finders, there are prizes! These prizes include: A free weekend night and breakfast for two the next morning at the Fairview Park Marriott. 2TF and 3TF are $50.00 GCs from Conklyn's Florist! 4TF and 5TF will be Starbucks gift card. All will be mailed to the winners.

The difficulty reflects the need to find twelve other caches, before being able to figure out the starting coordinates for this one.

This series was inspired by (OK, totally ripped off from) the 2008 Cachemas series in Richmond, VA BAG Squad, bhoard, DeepSeaGoddess and sekondliph who in turn were inspired by JAMM in CT.

Congratulations to: ???? as the Official First to Finders of the 2009 NoVAGO Cachemas Prize Cache!!!

Thanks to the Boccos for the excellent graphics!!
