2014 Victorian Cache of the Year Awards Event Cache

This cache has been archived.

LouiseAnn: With less than 10 logs outstanding (according to the log book) I think it's time to put this event to bed for another year.

Thanks once again to the sponsors and supporters, my team on the day and to everyone for coming along, despite the heat. Please keep an eye out for an event later in the year for the 'Hall of Fame' and once again, if you want to either help me out next year, or donate a prize, please let me know.

Lets all hope next year isn't quite as warm! See you soon

LouiseAnn [:)]
