I found a bunch today at the Oz Geomuster event (so will certainly get the 10 in a theme one), but some of the challenges ended up near water - but they are all mysteries so the published coords are a long way away from a water course. How are these verified - or should I just put the final coords in my claim text in case it gets checked and you trust me :D

In your claim post the final coords and the admins will check. I won't cheat. Trust me. I don't care enough to cheat :lol:

More questions from Sambuccasam...How are the points worked out for 10 pin bowling challenge..find 10 or more in a series and also the points for the triathalon, find the big three in one day..multi, mystery and Traditional? Do you just enter one cache(your best points gained) then type the rest in the claim?

Are the 5 x points for valid GCA DZ caches you find for the actual commonwealth games dates( Wednesday April 4 until Sunday April 15, ) just for general day to day geocaching (allocating dz cache points, DZ ranking points?) or do they factor into the points calculations for the games challenges. say type trad 5 x size small 3 + diff 2 x terr 3... (5 x 3 = 15 + 2 x 3 = 6) =21 x 5 bonus points = 105?

Just a note for others who play the games regularly but may not read stuff through...lol...you will notice the points for cache type is changed with traditional having the 5 points now instead of mystery/unknown which now has 3 points.
Also the points are now calculated as ...type x size + diff x terrain = ? NOT as before when one(type x size) or the other(diff x Terr) which ever was the greater was used to calculate points.

thanks in advance to the administrator Gods of the games.

good luck everyone..Happy Hunting.

The geocache you enter is the one that the points are calculated. So of the 10 you find for 10 pin bowling, choose the best one for the points you need (not always the highest points).

The 5x bonus does not apply to GeosportZ 2018 points. Just your normal dZ game points.

Thanks that was super helpful.

Just one more haha for Taekwondo. Is it just either a 3 for difficulty or 3 for terrain or do the 2 together have to add up to 3. Like 1 + 2 = 3. The word "equal" is what has thrown me sorry. I realise you have "or" there.

Good thing the challenges don't expire this time around, just remember to lodge your claims within 7 days of finding the cache. :D
