Geocache Description:

PRETORIA GeoArt Series

Welcome to PRETORIA!


The Pretoria geocaching community is very proud to present PRETORIA, the largest GeoArt series to date in South Africa. 


Aside from its rich cultural history, Pretoria is also home to an extremely active geocaching community.  The Pretoria geocachers are a very social bunch and meet at least once every month to share stories, swap experiences and trackables and enjoy each other's company.  During one of our get-togethers, the idea of putting our beautiful city well and truly on the geocaching map was born.  It started off as a small idea but we soon realised that it would be a huge undertaking.  When the call for interested parties went out, the local community responded true to spirited Pretoria form and soon all 85 caches were allocated to 21 different teams.  The PRETORIA GeoArt community project commenced in January 2014 and was completed six months later in June 2014. 


We hope you will enjoy exploring our beautiful city of PRETORIA.

To find the cache you will need to solve the puzzle first:

Music notation or musical notation is any system used to visually represent aurally perceived music through the use of written symbols, including ancient or modern musical symbols. Although many ancient cultures used symbols to represent melodies, none of them is nearly as comprehensive as written language, limiting the knowledge of ancient music to a few fragments. Comprehensive music notation began to be developed in Europe in the Middle Ages and has been adapted to many kinds of music worldwide.

The following piece of music is written in the Key of C

In order to solve the puzzle you will have to transpose the song into the key of G and then use the following alogorithm (ignore all sharps and flats):

S25 43.(7th note)(14th note - 15th note)(31th note + 33rd note) E028 13.(7th note)(11th note - 12th note)(30th note)
Remember A=1, B=2.....
