HOW TO FIND THE CACHE?

It's easy one-stage multi-cache. The hunt shouldn't take more than 10 minutes.

Your task is to find out the year when Vandamm died. You can search this date on the internet, or from the board next to the monument. It's a little bit tricky, when you don't speak Czech at all, isn't it? . Don't worry, it's the very last year on the bottom of the board. You'll get ABCD, which you need to substitute to the following equation.

N 50° 42.(BCD+(CD+20)' E 13° 56.((ABCD/2)-(ABCD/10)-(ABCD/10)-B)

Šťastný lov! Happy hunting!
