Is a large reservoir, not manmade, all natural sides and bottom, ok for 20. or 21 ( as a lake). It is enclosed, not a river.

I'm trying to think of a way to say to yes....but again, I have to say no. It's a Boxing Ring, not a Boxing box. Sorry.....

Boxing Ring is the intent of the requirement......so I think we'll leave it simply as Ring.

Have re-read both the requirements and we'd be happy to approve it under the guise of a lake.....which is either 21 or 22. My suggestion to everyone though would be 21.....so that leaves you 22 if you want to claim one on a beach....which is 22.

Question re #8 Cycling requirements to find a cache which has a bike friendly icon (applies on GC caches) or ride a bike to the cache.
Would a GA moveable where the cache is the bike count?

With photo evidence, I think that would fit with the spirit of the event, yes

Hi I can't find my way around messaging and forums I have probably nagged both admin to death. But I put my decathlon in with only the day 1 geocaches for the 12th August. I thought I had to enter them on 2 dates separately. Can I list the 13th August 10 x cache finds somewhere to meet the requirements.
Sorry to bother you a newbie giving it a red hot go and is exhausted. I finished the 20th decathalon cache find last night at 10.30pm.
Please please help I don't want to lose all those points. I am mad at myself already.

Note to lots of people: Geocaches for the game must be published before the start of the game unless the requirement clearly states an exception.

This is the first dot point in the rules. Many people are claiming caches placed in the last few days. These are not allowed. Please be careful. The on event that allows caches places after the 1st of August is golf and the hiding based events.

I must say, it's a lot more interesting than "solve a puzzle and find a container." :-P

A small enhancement.
http://geocaching.com.au/dragonzone/gam ... hallenges/

When you visit this page to see what challenges are on offer, the ones you have claimed will be italicised and will have a small green dragonZone icon next to them. Now you can just check the others to see if any of your weekend activities are claimable.

It doesn't look too well when you don't have joined a dragonclan. Could you swap the image-number to number-image so there is no "false" indention of the number?
