2018/2019 Summer Game

Post by whitewebbs » 21 November 18 2:24 pm

Time is getting close for the start of the Journey or Destination game. I have a couple of questions:
1. From reading rules, if you hide a cache during the games it will only benefit you as the rules state on finding a cache during game it has to have been published prior to 1.12.18?
2. Should we be out hiding caches now so other GCA players will be able to find them during the games?
3. If you hide during game it has to be a regular or large, but if you find during games of a cache published prior tto 1.12.18, can it be any size?

1. Correct. This is for your benefit.
2. That's up to you.
3. Correct as there is no size restriction listed against finds.

Thanks for the quick reply.
Should we hold an event like you are doing in Victoria for bringing moveables together as you hint at that being beneficial?

That "large" or "regular" requirement is a shame as they limit it too much.

In the last two games I put out about 30 caches of various sizes and container types which fit in the scenery.

So... If I hide regular/large caches within the game period. They will not benefit finders during the game period as far as the game is concerned???? :-k

Correct. A hide only benefits the hider. If you want to help others you need to hide new ones by 30 Nov but they can be any size.

+1 for this....is there any way smalls could be included on the hiding side of things? I see the GCA shop has a nice pack of small caches I could purchase.... :D

Otherwise I’m excited for the start of this...bring on Dec...thanks to the organisers for putting the games together.
