Geocache Description:

THIS CACHE WILL BE ARCHIVED AT THE END OF SEPTEMBER 2017.

Short description:

This is a five part multi cache. Part one is at the above coordinates; the next four coordinates are in the UK, Germany, Australia and Canada.

Long description:

There are five World Caches:

This is designed as a team event with the team consisting of a member in each of the five countries.

How this cache is designed:
One set of coordinates have been sent to each country from each country. So each country has one of the other's coordinates, as in the following table.

Country Stage 1 Stage 2 Stage 3 Stage 4
Australia Germany 2 USA 3 UK 4 Canada Final
Canada Australia 2 Germany 3 USA 4 UK Final
Germany USA 2 UK 3 Canada 4 Australia Final
United Kingdom Canada 2 Australia 3 Germany 4 USA Final
United States of America UK 2 Canada 3 Australia 4 Germany Final

At the posted coordinates you will find a set of coordinates for one of the other countries. You will have to e-mail these coordinates to the team member in that country. They can then go to that waypoint and find the next set of coordinates which will be for another country, then e-mail it to the team member for that country, and so on till the caches are completed.

For example, the team member in Australia finds Stage 1 of World Cache (Australia), and e-mails the coordinates they find to their teammate in Germany, who can then find Stage 2 of World Cache (Germany). At their local Stage 2, the Germany team will find the coordinates for Stage 3 of World Cache (United Kingdom), which they will e-mail to their UK teammate.


=======================
Team Formation
=======================

If you are in the USA, and you would like to join a team for this series, write a note for this cache page saying you are available. Please post a final note mentioning who is on your team, then delete your previous notes after you have formed a team. There is a maximum of five geocaching names per team. The cache owners for each country have decided to also delete any notes from people who are from other countries. This will help keep down any clutter and make it easier to find cachers from a certain area. You can visit the other cache pages to look for teammates, by seeing who has written notes on them. When you log a find for this cache (meaning you have found all 5 stages), please list your teammates' geocaching names again in your found it log.
