This cache has been archived.

OReviewer: As there's been no cache to find for a long time or has had no owner response for at least 30 days, I'm archiving it to keep it from showing up in search lists, and to prevent it from blocking other cache placements.

Please note that if geocaches are archived by a reviewer or Geocaching HQ for lack of maintenance, they are not eligible for unarchival.

The third annual Delaware Challenge is back: First State Challenge 2011 sponsored by Delaware Geocachers! Now its moved to a fall event.

There are about 20 new caches spread across the state of Delaware by volunteer cachers to give you an appreciation for the great areas of the First State. These should all be fairly easy to find as they are either small or regular size with a maximum rating of 2/2.
To complete this challenge and be eligible for a small Challenge tag & certificate at the challenge event, you must complete the following:

1. You must find and log ALL FSC-2011 caches- both at the cache location and online.
2. Record the code phrase written in the log book of each hide and email your completed list of all FSC-2011 code phrases to FSC2011@aol.com
3.For your convenience, there is a form on the Delaware Geocaching Website at First State Challenge 2011 - Form although the use of this form is not required.
4. There will be a Challenge Event (12/10 in Dover) open to all cachers. At this event, those that have been verified as completing the challenge, will be eligible for a small Challenge tag and Completion certificate.
5. The small Challenge tags are limited to the first 100 cachers who complete the challenge.
6. More information can be found on the Delaware Geocachers FSC-2001 Page First State Challenge 2011 or on the forum page First State Challenge 2011 Forum
