Geocache Description:


THE CACHE IS AT THE PUBLISHED CO-ORDINATES. YOU MUST QUALIFY TO BE ABLE TO LOG IT AS A FOUND CACHE.

PLEASE READ THE CRITERIA CAREFULLY AND CHECK THAT YOU FULFILL THE CRITERIA COMPLETLY, TO BE ABLE TO QUALIFY THEN GO FIND THE CACHE. WHEN THE LOG SHEET IS SIGNED THEN GO AHEAD AND LOG IT ONLINE.

ALL QUALIFYING CRITERIA WILL BE CHECKED. PLEASE DON’T LOG IT IF YOU DON’T QUALIFY. I DON’T LIKE DELETING LOGS BUT TO BE FAIR TO OTHER CACHERS AND IN THE SPIRIT OF THE GAME IF YOU DO NOT QUALIFY THE LOG WILL BE QUIETLY DELETED. I WILL OF COURSE NOTIFY YOU BEFORE DOING SO, JUST IN CASE AN ERROR HAS BEEN MADE

PLEASE RETURN THE CACHE TO ITS ORIGINAL HIDING PLACE AND MAKE SURE IT IS WELL HIDDEN.



147 SNOOKER CHALLENGE CACHE

YOU HAVE TO FIND 36 CACHES TO CLAIM THIS CACHE, SIMPLE! WELL NOT QUITE.

THIS IS THE 147 SNOOKER CHALLENGE CACHE. YOU HAVE TO FIND THE CACHES AS IF YOU WERE PLAYING SNOOKER. THAT MEANS THE CACHES ARE YOUR BALLS.

YOU ARE ALL CHAMPIONSHIP PLAYERS THOUGH!

THE TRADITIONAL CACHES ARE THE RED BALLS, THE YELLOW BALL IS A MULTI CACHE, THE GREEN BALL IS AN EARTHCACHE, THE BROWN BALL IS A LETTERBOX CACHE, THE BLUE BALL IS AN UNKNOWN CACHE, THE PINK IS MULTI, THE BLACK BALL IS ANY CACHE TYPE OTHER THAN A TRADITIONAL, THAT MEANS THE UNKNOWN, MULTI, EARTHCACHE, LETTERBOX, VIRTUAL, WHERIGO, WEBCAM, EVENT, CITO, MEGA, AND EVEN THE APE CACHE. (SO PLENTY TYPES TO CHOOSE FROM, HAHA) .

IN SNOOKER THE PLAYER ACHIEVES A 147 BREAK WHEN THEY POT ALL THE (15) RED BALLS FOLLOWED ON EACH OCCASION BY A BLACK BALL. ONCE ALL THE RED BALLS HAVE GONE THE PLAYER THEN POTS THE COLOURS IN THE FOLLOWING SEQUENCE - YELLOW, GREEN, BROWN, BLUE, PINK AND THEN FINALLY BLACK, THUS ACHIEVING THE 147 BREAK.

SO YOU MUST FIND A TRADITIONAL (RED) AND THEN ANOTHER CACHE TYPE (BLACK) FIFTEEN TIMES, FOLLOWED BY DIFFERENT CACHE TYPES TO REPRESENT, YELLOW, GREEN, BROWN, BLUE, PINK AND THEN BLACK.

A TOTAL OF 36 CACHES AND A 147 BREAK. ALL CACHES MUST BE FOUND IN A SINGLE DAY (0000 – 2359) AND YOU MUST FOLLOW THE CORRECT SEQUENCE. IF YOU POT (FIND) OUT OF SEQUENCE THEN YOUR BREAK IS OVER AND YOU MUST START AGAIN.

YOU CAN NOT USE THIS CACHE AS A QUALIFYING CACHE FOR THE CHALLENGE.

THE TRADITIONALS MUST NOT BE IN A SERIES! YOU CAN HAVE A SINGLE ONE FROM A SERIES. THEY MUST BE INDIVIDUAL TRADITIONALS.

YOU MUST PROVIDE EVIDENCE OF YOUR 147 BREAK IN YOUR LOG OR A BOOKMARK LIST. THIS WILL BE CHECKED THROUGH YOUR PROFILE.

THIS WILL TAKE CAREFUL PLANNING AND GOOD LUCK AND ENJOY THE DIVERSITY.

IF YOU ARE NOT SURE ABOUT THE RULES ASK BEFORE YOU ATTEMPT IT.

I WOULD LIKE TO SAY A MASSIVE THANKS TO JUST-US-TWO FOR ALLOWING ME TO BORROW ONE OF THEIR CHALLENGE IDEAS AND PUTTING MY OWN TWIST ON IT.
