Reviewer notes

Use this space to describe your geocache location, container, and how it's hidden to your reviewer. If you've made changes, tell the reviewer what changes you made. The more they know, the easier it is for them to publish your geocache. This note will not be visible to the public when your geocache is published.

This cache has been archived.

Keystone: As the event took place more than a month ago, and because the "stages of a multicache" waypoints are interfering with the review of new caches in the area, I am archiving this listing.

For future reference, temporary event cache coordinates should not be listed in the Additional Waypoints as "stages of a multicache" but rather as "reference points."

Thank you,
Keystone Volunteer Cache Reviewer
