Geocache Description:

You are searching for 5 pink numbers hidden at Treadwell Park to
give you the coordinates to the location of the final also
hidden at Treadwell Park in Newtown, Conn., home of the Nighthawks.

Posted coordinates are for one of the clues, not the final cache.

The location for the five numbers are:

Clue 1. N41 25.227' W73 16.168'
Clue 2. N41 25.146' W73 16.313'
Clue 3. N41 25.147' W73 16.358'
Clue 4. N41 25.204' W73 16.349'
Clue 5. N41 25.237' W73 16.278'

NEW LOCATION FOR FINAL CACHE AS OF 12/31/2011
The final cache is a tin (5 inches by 5 in) and is located at:

N41 25.ZYD
W73 16.XWC

...where ABCDE stand for the numbers found next to the five sports fields as follows:

A: volleyball
B: basketball
C: tennis
D: soccer
E: softball
and
Z=B-D
Y=E-A
X=B-A-E
W=A+E

Sorry for the complicated calcuations, but the final cache in the original location (under a bench near the tennis court) went missing twice within a year, so I moved the location of the final cache to someplace hopefully more safe.

All locations can be found without disturbing sports practices or games, although the players may double as muggles.
