Geocache Description:

Saskatchewan Winter Caching Game III.

Oddly similar to the previous Winter Caching Games.


The location will be at Doc Hollandaise restaurant in Sutherland at about 6:30 PM.

They had a private room, so I moved things over there.

Please let me know if you are attending and how many so that I can let the restaurant know.

What is the Winter Cache Game?

The Winter Cache Game is a fun competition to get you out of the house during the chilly days of winter. Designed for all Saskatchewan cachers, the objective is to complete any 10 of the game requirements for finding or placing caches during the next 2 months. Prizes will be awarded to the 2 top scores, the low score, and the score closest to the average.

This is not a race. Some requirements have a higher (or lower) score than others. Read the requirements carefully and choose wisely. You are seeking points, not claiming the requirements first although there is danger in waiting too long. Even if you can't get the high score, cunning strategy may result in a prize.

To claim requirements for the Winter Cache Game, caches found can be from anywhere. This game is not limited to caches located in Saskatchewan. However the Winter Cache Game is limited to cachers who live in Saskatchewan with the exception of those cachers who reside in Lloydminster as it is a border city.

We will attempt to contact you in the event of any confusion, however we may ignore any claims that do not meet the requirements. If you have any doubts about whether a cache is suitable, contact us before claiming it. We will try to find a way to say yes, so lateral thinking is encouraged.

Good Luck! Have Fun!


Rules:
The short version: 10 requirements in 2 months; report each requirement within 7 days of fulfilling as a note for this cache; go for high, low or medium points.

4. Caches you claim for the game must be logged on www.Geocaching.com after the start of the game.

5. Caches must be claimed within 7 days of your task date and before the end of the game. The post must clearly state which requirement is being claimed and how the cache meets the requirement. Post your claims on this cache listing page.

6. Claims must be made on caches published before the start of the game November 28th, 2010. Caches hidden for claims which require cache hides must be published before 11:59pm January 28th, 2011 unless the requirement states otherwise.

10. Points are awarded on the basis of either: Requirement Score + (Difficulty * Terrain) or a fixed points score. Each requirement clearly states the scoring method. If it is a requirement where you choose the amount of set points, you must state in the Claims thread which amount of points you are taking for the requirement.

11. Prizes will be awarded to: 2 cachers who complete 10 requirements and have the highest points score; 1 cacher who completes 10 requirements and has the lowest points score; 1 cacher who finishes with a score closest to average.

12. In the event of a tie score, the earliest score will be used as the tiebreaker.

13. I, el_fudgeeo, will administrate the game and my decisions are final. I reserve the right to provide clarifications to the rules at any point during the game.

Requirements (pick 10):


1. Kid Cache = 1 Point + (Difficulty * Terrain)
Log any physical cache that displays a "kid friendly" icon on the cache page to claim this requirement. If the kid friendly icon is not present when your log is verified then you log will not be honoured.

2. Wheelchair Accessible Cache = 1 Point + (Difficulty * Terrain)
Log any cache of any type that displays an wheelchair accessible icon on the cache page to claim this requirement. If the wheelchair accessible icon is not present when your log is verified then you log will not be honoured.

3. In the Night = 1 Point + (Difficulty * Terrain)
Log any physical cache designed for you to find at night or log any physical cache that you find between midnight and 5:00 AM local time. Your log must mention the time that you completed the cache.

4. Series Cache = 1 Point + (Difficulty * Terrain)
Log any cache of any type that is part of a series to claim this requirement. The series must be clearly stated in either the title or cache description. It does not have to be a multicache or part of a series where you need to collect clues from each component of the series. You only need to collect one cache in the series. The series needs to be placed by a single cacher.

5. Driveby Cache = 1 Point + (Difficulty * Terrain)
Log any cache of any type where you parked your registered vehicle (car, truck, motor cycle, humvee, helicopter, etc) less than 10 meters from the cache to claim this requirement. 4WD accessible or motor cycle parking is acceptable. You are free to approach by bicycle if that's your style, but you must also be able to park your registered vehicle less than 10 meters from the cache. Any logs that indicate that a breach of the law occurred, or could reasonably infer that a breach of the law occurred will not be honoured.

6. Cache where Difficulty plus Terrain add to 7 = 2 Points + (Difficulty * Terrain)
Log any cache of any type where the sum of the terrain and difficulty add to 7 to claim this requirement. 6 shall not be the number of counting, nor shall 8. 7 is the number and the number shall be 7. 9 is right out. For example, a difficulty 3 and terrain 4 will qualify. A difficulty of 3.5 and a terrain of 3.5 also qualifies. A difficulty of 4 and a terrain of 3 also qualifies. A difficulty of 3.5 and a terrain of 4 does not qualify as it adds up to more than 7.

7. 171 or 2635 Cache = 2 Points + (Difficulty * Terrain)
Log any cache of any type where the numbers 171 or 2635 appear in that order anywhere in the co-ordinates as published to claim this requirement. The numbers may run across the two sets of co-ordinates latitude & longitude. Multicache intermediate or final waypoints, or unknown (mystery or puzzle) caches do not qualify. The numbers do not need to appear sequentially, but they need to appear in order. eg. N 52° 11.527 W 106° 38.887 would quality as the numbers 171 appear in order, even though they are not sequential.

8. Sunset or Sunrise = 2 Points + (Difficulty * Terrain)
Log any physical cache that you find at sunrise or sunset. Post a picture of the sunset or sunrise at the cache location.

9. Make a Friend = 2 Points + (Difficulty * Terrain)
Log any physical cache with a fellow geocacher you have never cached with before. A fellow geocacher is someone who registered on (visit link) before start of this game. Your log must indicate that you were caching with your new friend and both of your logs must be entered on the same day on the same cache. Your new friend must be someone you have never been on a planned geocache hunt with before. They do not have to be playing in the Winter Cache Game.

10. Take a Muggle = 2 Points + (Difficulty * Terrain)
Log any physical cache with a person who has never went geocaching before. This person must not be registered on (visit link) before start of this game. Your log must indicate that you were caching with your muggle friend & contain a picture of your muggle friend while Geocaching.

11. Unloved Cache = 3 Points + (Difficulty * Terrain)
Log any physical cache that has not been found in the preceding 90 days.

12. Do You DNF? = 3 Points + (Difficulty * Terrain)
Log a find on a physical cache that you have previously logged a "Didn't find it" on. Your DNF must have been logged and dated before the start of the game. In your justification, provide the date of your earlier DNF.

13. Maintain a Cache = 3 Points + (Diffculty * Terrain)
Log any cache of any type that you undertook maintenance on to claim this requirement. Maintenance can be anything from something as simple as replenishing the cache contents, wiping the cache out and restoring it to its former glory to completely replacing a damaged / broken container. Previous logs must clearly state that the cache container was in disrepair or that the contents had diminished over time or that the log needed replacing.

14. Fancy Dress = 5 Points + (Difficulty * Terrain)
Log any physical cache and have a photo taken of you at the cache where you are dressed in attire which directly relates to the cache's theme. For example, if the cache describes pirates then eye patches, a wooden leg, sword and parrot would be appropriate attire. A wedding cache would have you dressed in a wedding gown. Be creative. Do not just wear ordinary clothes and try to make the theme fit. This requirement is all about your creativity. There may be a special prize for best costume.

15. Dozen Finds Day = 3 or 6 points outright (Your Choice)
Log finds on 12 physical caches within a single calendar date. Not 12 within any random 24 hours but actually 12 within a single date, beginning at 12am midnight and ending at 11:59pm.

16. EarthCache = 3 or 6 Points outright (Your Choice)
Log or hide an EarthCache. Your log must conform to the requirements of the Earth Cache and cannot be claimed until the cache owner has approved your log on the EarthCache. Be careful you don't run out of game time before the cache owner approves your log. If you hide an EarthCache this requirement is exempt from the rule that the date the cache was hidden must be before the start of the game.

17. Host an Event = 0 or 12 Points outright (your choice)
Host an event. Your event must be listed at (visit link) and must be published before the game ends (although the event can take place after the game ends). This requirement is exempt from the rule that the date must be before the start of the game. Note that according to cache guidelines, event caches should be submitted no less than two weeks before the date of the event, so plan accordingly.

18. Hide a Big One = 0 or 12 Points outright (your choice)
Hide a large physical cache, i.e., a container of at least 5 gallons (20 liters). Your cache must be listed at (visit link) and must be published before the game ends. This requirement is exempt from the rule that the date the cache was published must be before the start of the game.

19. Hide Mystery/Puzzle Caches = 0 or 12 points outright (Your Choice)
Hide 3 Mystery/Puzzle caches. Your caches must be published on www.geocaching.com before the end of the game (11:59pm Jan. 29th, 2011). Points cannot be claimed until the caches are published. Be careful you don't run out of game time before the cache reviewer publishes your caches. Your hides for this requirement are exempt from the rule that the date the cache was hidden must be before the start of the game.

20. Hide Traditional Winter Friendly Caches = 0 or 12 points outright (Your Choice)
Hide 5 Traditional caches that are easily findable in the snow. Your caches must be published on www.geocaching.com before the end of the game (11:59pm Jan. 29th, 2011). Points cannot be claimed until the caches are published. Be careful you don't run out of game time before the cache reviewer publishes your caches. Your hides for this requirement are exempt from the rule that the date the cache was hidden must be before the start of the game.

21. Let's Go Streaking (not that!)
Earn a point for each consecutive day you go caching during the game. You may find more than a single cache each day. You can count any string of 1 or more days for this one. These finds may be also be claimed as part of another requirement if necessary.

22. A Blast From the Past = 0 or 10 points outright (Your Choice)
Find a cache on its 10 year Anniversary. For example, find the Oldest Saskatchewan Cache (GC14F, Sask-cache-one) on its 10 year Anniversary of January 7 2011!
