There are two caches showing in the ladder for Alfyboy as already there - both are traditionals and with different owners?
Confused!

There are a huge number missing from the 40's for some reason. 4740, 4840 and 4940 are all MIA. So are the 41, 42, 43, 49, 50 and 51 numbers for all 3 ranges. Weird. I hope a Bingo player has them reserved but just not yet entered into the game.

We're now down to missing 49-51 & 66 :D \:D/ Oh course just because there is a cache with a number you need doesn't mean it'll ever come within grabbing distance... ](*,)

Sorry - this might have been covered already

The two other people to move the cache before you can move it again rule seems to have gone. Am I just missing it? :-k

You just missed it (previous page).

There isn't a restriction. As it's more about you the finder rather than the cache being moved, "cheating" by handing the cache off between two of you to gain mileage isn't applicable.

Doesn't this lead to the possibility of finding your own hide?

You can find and move your own cache during the game period provided it is not the caches first move

I was going to try to get a number in each of the rows (eg 10s, 20s, 30s etc) between Strike-a-light and myself so we had a nice distribution across the whole range. I created a new cache at #32, looked an hour later to see #39 had been entered already and quickly created my next cache, only to find I'm already at #55!! Who took all the 40's???!!!
Tassie's a nice summer destination..... :D
A few pages later....

Rest assured, all the 4740's are in good hands and will be available on a certain southern island come December 1. :lol:

Well you might have talked about this, but I was not in any conversation about it. I was more concerned that I could in a cache move it 1 km then pretend to hide it then refind it ad move it another 1 km. This is something I wouldn't do, but It is open to rourting. If there was one finder Inbetween each move by a cacher this would make better sense

There is no rort because you only need a number once. i.e. If you have 25 on your bingo card and you move number 25, that's it. The distance does not count towards anything, apart from needing to move it at least 1km from the last location. Other than that it's a standard moveable cache. Your choice as to how many times you want to drop it off and claim another "move".

This is different to last year where distance and number of times it moved counted. This year it's all about YOU finding caches to match your card, not how far the caches themselves travel.

That must mean a lot of caches will just be left sitting around and out of a cacher's reach. I expect the numbers we need in Tassie may never get here, so will be impossible to complete a bingo card.
