Not sure I understand the (25) tennis requirement do the number have to be consecutive in the strict sense as in 0015 or can they be split as in 33 **.*00 150 **.*15 ?
They can be split.

The number combinations can appear anywhere in either the latitude or longitude, but each combination must appear as consecutive numbers.

ie: S 33° 08.383 E 151° 35.067 contains 30 15 and is therefore valid.

I have noticed this rule has not been adhered to.
I hope the game mechanism picks it up.
You can not see what has been approved or not approved. You can only see what people may have written in their logs. Words in a log do not mean that the claim has been approved, is under discussion or has been rejected. We have 3 experienced admins who check every claim for validity. Thanks for your concern and feel comfortable that the admins will make any final determinations in the spirit of the game.

Can the other caches used in triathlon be claimed for a challenge? Or are all 3 deemed 'used'

Only the cache that you enter into the "Cache ID" box is considered used.

The other two caches that you mention in your justification can be used for other claims.

Really????? I'm going to guess the same goes for the series of 10 then. Ah well. Too late.


Just wondering, does someone read all the claim logs? I'd be interested to know at the end of the game what the longest unfound archived cache was.

If you've logged them during the previous seven days there's still time...just.

Be creative.

As long as there's something at GZ that represents an Arch, or a Bow, or an Arrow, just photograph it and upload it to either your found log, or your published cache's gallery.

If it doesn't meet the requirement, your friendly admin will let you know.
