When I signed the log, back on 24th August 2014, I wasn't doing too badly with 454.5 points accumulated. An email to the CO confirmed I could use the points from "Pony Up" and "Ton UP". That made 463 points. The "Wear the Fox Hat" series, done over three days, provided four more well endowed bonuses to take me to 488.0 points. Two more circuits on 1st October gave me another 11 points to get to 499 point. Bother, one short! So this morning it was down to Lower Beeding for three more caches plus a bonus. Only another 2.5 points but enough to take me over the mark! Over three months from publication and I am only the 3rd person to find the cache! I also note that, so far, every finder has over 10,000 finds. Possibly an indication that this is a pretty tough to qualify for. I will probably continue to add "bonus" caches but without the focus of the last couple of months.
PS. See my web page http://www.15ddv.me.uk/geo/chal/bonus_challenge.html for the full list of qualifying caches.
