offline.cacher: The general rule reviewers use to archive a cache is that the cache owner has been notified (through a log entry) by the reviewer and that no response has been forthcoming. This is the case with this cache. As a result it has been archived.
If the owner would like to discuss this issue, please contact me through my geocaching.com profile. Include the GC code for the cache.

How Geocaching Works

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

Geocache Description:

A five-stage multi-cache with a field puzzle suitable for kids, and plenty of fantastic beasts.  Travel is via paved trails, pefect for scooters and bikes, but will require going off trail for some stages.


Best Multi-Cache 2016

A dark shadow looms.  

Something is making the fantastic creatures that inhabit the forest take refuge.  Can you discover what lurks there?  Seek out the Woodland Fairy to begin.

MAGIC! A magic device capable of communicating with fairies will be required in the field. The Woodland Fairy's magic address is WoodlandFairyGeo@gmail.com. You can test your ability by sending a message with ROSETTA as the only word in the subject line.

STEALTH! Bring your invisibility cloak! There is significant muggle-jogging activity.

DANGER! Watch out for snakes, mud, thorns, creeks, poison ivy, and fantastic creatures!

DARKNESS! Cache was placed with permission from the Ministry of Magic. Students are only permitted to enter the forbidden forest from dawn to dusk! No night caching!

House Cup:

Five points to Cache Clown 76 of house Gryffindor! Their determination and bravery earned them FTF as the sun began to peek through the clouds at 2:00 pm on the afternoon of December 29th, 2016!

Troubleshooting FairyNet: Make sure you have spelled the clue word correctly and it is the only item in the subject line. Always compose a new message instead of replying. Wait 30 seconds to 1 minute for a response. Check your spam folder for messages from woodlandfairygeo+canned.response@gmail.com. Some users have reported that AOL accounts cannot receive the messages because they are blocked (not sure why...) so switching to a different free server like gmail might help.
