Mario McTavish: I've decided to archive this challenge cache.

I discovered that the 'checker' on Project-GC (nothing to do with me, I didn't ask for it to be made) doesn't actually work correctly. It looks for a score of 666 amongst all the finds on a specific day and when it reaches that score it stops counting. This means that people can score in excess of the 666 and the checker still says they qualify.

I started to do an audit on the finds and realised that almost ALL the finders over the last couple of years don't actually qualify for this challenge as they have all scored in excess of the exact 666 required.

Instead of deleting everyones logs I've decided to let them stand and archive the listing instead.

It was a fun challenge (for those of us who did it correctly... [;)]) but time for it to go.

Thanks for all the finds and to the Threlkeld Family for setting it up originally.

How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

This is a DEVIL of a challenge will test your planning and caching ability to their limit, those skilled enough to complete this challenge may find the cache located at the listed coordinates. You will be looking for a medium size clip lock Box covered in natural camo containing a number of trinkets and 1 unactivated Geocoin for the FTF.

The Challenge

As the name suggests this is a 1 day challenge meaning that you only have from Midnight – 11:59pm to find the required caches.

Now that we have covered the basics of telling the time, here comes the HELL part.

Each cache type has a set value which is then multiplied by its D/T Value to give that cache a total value, so the harder the cache the more its worth and the quicker you finish the challenge.

In order to claim this cache you must reach 666 Points exactly, No more, No Less.


Cache Values

All Event Caches      = 0 Points

Traditional Cache   = 5 points

Letterbox Cache  = 5 Points

Multi Cache  = 6 points

Unknown Cache  = 7 points

 Earth Cache  = 8 points

Virtual Cache  = 9 points

Wherigo Cache  = 10 points

Webcam Cache  = 12 Points


For example

A Traditional Cache with a Difficulty of 2 and a Terrain of 1.5 would equal 17.5 points 


An Unknown Cache with a Difficulty of 4 and a Terrain of 3 would equal 49 Points


The Rules

1. You cannot log your own caches

2. Caches found must be new to you (no returning to previously found caches)

3. This cache cannot be used as one of required caches

4.  People logging a find on this cache without posting a bookmark listing or a note of their caches used to complete this challenge will have their log deleted.

5. On the day of the challenge you may only find the required caches for the challenge, any additional caches that take you over the points value will mean you do not qualify

6. Retrospective claims ARE allowed, so if you have met the challenge requirements  on a previous occasion you can claim this cache straight away

7. As all events equal zero points attending an event will not affect your score or disqualify you from the challenge.

8. Have Fun & safe Caching

So there you have it you know the requirements and you know the challenge, accept at your own risk and enjoy.
