Post Geocaching Australia Weekly Trivia Competition
Would you like to win something? Maybe add to your pathtag collection, or maybe even start a collection? Well, here's your chance. Enter the Geocaching Australia Weekly Trivia and you’ll be in with a chance to do so. Starting on Wednesday 15 March, we will upload a question here and on our Facebook page for you to answer. The answer will be found somewhere on the GCA site….maybe somewhere in the statistical graphs, maybe somewhere in the dragonZone area. You job will be to simply track it down and send the answer through to us.

For more info......visit viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2076&start=600

Geocaching Australia Weekly Trivia

Here we are Wednesday 15 March……and the first week of the GCA weekly trivia competition.

So, let gets straight into the first question….and please remember…..don’t post your answer directly to this thread, you can enter via a Private Message to ‘richary’ through the site*:
*(If you're not sure how to send a message through the site, check the bottom of this post for a basic 'how to' guide)


What is the ‘Title’ of the 4th rank in Geocaching Australia’s dragonZone game.


To find the answer, head over to Geocaching Australia and start your search.

Entries close next Monday 20th March at 8.00pm Australian Eastern Daylight Savings time. The answer, and our first winner, will be announced next Wednesday.

Good luck.


And for those who tired our teaser question last week, the answer was 2012 (with a total of 35,172.) The attached link shows the appropriate graph. http://geocaching.com.au/stats/graphs/g ... ds_by_year


To send an e-mail through Geocaching Australia:

Click on ‘0 New Message’ link near the top of this page
Under options on the left hand side, click on ‘Compose message’
Under ‘SEND TO’ and the box under ‘Username’ type Richary, then click ‘Add [to]’ This will place ‘Richary’ in the ‘To’ field of the message
In the ‘Subject’ field, you can simply write Weekly Trivia Competition.
In the ‘Message Body’ area, write your answer. By all means, add a ‘Hi Richary’ and ‘Thanks’ at the end of the message, but the important thing is to list you answer.
Then click on ‘Submit’ and you can watch your message disappear into cyberspace.

If you questions on any other aspects of the competition, please ask here.

Well, our first weekly trivia competition has been run and won.

AND THE WINNER IS....
The winner of our first weekly trivia competition is BUHFUHGUH from Victoria. They were one of 19 who entered the competition via either Facebook (9 entries) or the GCA Forums (10 entries).

Congratulations BUHFUHGUH, your shiny new pathtag is in the mail.

As for the answer, 99% of entries correctly answered MERCHANT as the 4th title level in dragonZone. Just for the record, level 1 is Dragon Fodder, level 2 is Peasant and level 3 is Citizen. Do you know what your level you're currently at? If not, hopefully you can check here to see.

The winner for week 2 was spatialriq from WA. Apologies, it seemed nobody posted the week 3 question in the forums so it only went out on facebook. We will make sure week 4 is posted in here as well.

Our lucky winner for week 3 was Black Bunny.

So... I take it seeing as the last two weeks are not showing up here, that it's not happening here anymore at all?

I think week 4 should be posted shortly, hopefully. Week 3 seems to have finished early as the competitions were finishing on a Wednesday.
