Just mention why you believe the cache meets the challenge requirements.

GSAK (Geocaching Swiss Army Knife) is a good place to check elevations, but if you don't use that tool, this website is handy for checking elevations:

Just remember to enter you coordinates in decimal degrees. A handy coordinate converter is located on the Geocaching Australia website, in the GCA Toolbox: https://geocaching.com.au/toolbox/coordinate/

Hello,
Enjoying the games, thanks to all the organisers.
Just wondering what the definition of “bicycle” is? Does a scooter count?

A bicycle, also called a cycle or bike, is a human-powered, pedal-driven, single-track vehicle, having two wheels attached to a frame, one behind the other.

What's your definition of a scooter? Something that is motorised?

Non-motorised, human powered.....razor style....ticks all the boxes in the definition with the exception of pedals :(

A designated area on which sports are played, not necessarily Association Football. Within the distance specified by the challenge.

Obscure sports, such as Dwarf-tossing for instance, may need to be reviewed differently. :D

Geosportz 2018 I am done and dusted off. Thanks for the challenges Geocaching Australia Administrators and volunteers. I was determined to win this one after my 4th place in Geosportz 2016 and a newbie who had never geocached before. So I knew I could win this one with 2 years under my belt now. Thanks Everyone. =D> =D> =D> \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ :phoenix :phoenix Go Team Phoenix :phoenix :phoenix

The games dont finish until midnight 29.4.18 there may still be others aspiring to join you at the top (well done on your 40 claims and 1,000 points) and logging furiously. Thanks to all behind the scenes, we have enjoyed the games, and were pleased we were on the big isle at the Mega as many more options.
