Would arm wrestling apply for the wrestling requirement.

"OR-- Non-Physical or Other type cache with a type Nano/Micro or Other"...

Can that other be "Not Chosen" or actually as it now listed on GC.com... "Virtual" ?

Am also presuming as it says "OR" before this part of the requirement that it is ok to be Diff 3 / Terrain 1 ? coz a) it says "OR" and b) it totals less than 2x2 anyway.

I can PM the actual cache I am thinking of if you want ...?
Yes.
2/2

==OR==
Type:
Non-Physical = 1 Point
Non-Physical: Any type that is Event, Mega Event, CITO, EarthCache, Virtual, WebCam, Locationless
Other = 2 Points
Other: Any type that is Project APE, Letterbox Hybrid, Moveable, TrigPoint, Wherigo
Container:
Other = 1 Point
Other: Any container that is not nano / micro, small, regular or large
Nano / Micro = 2 Points

Basically either combo needs to be 2/2 or less.
I got a bit confused when I scored more than 4 point for judo - but then I remembered although the Difficulty x Terrain points would be <= 4, the Cache Type x Size points can be considerably more. Luckily it was early on in the game when I wasn't too fussed about points and meeting targets (that problem came later!) :oops:

29: Wrestling
Find and log a geocache and attach a picture to your log of you and a fellow geocacher wrestling over the cache container to claim this requirement.

As long as you are wrestling with another cacher, sure. If can be arm, body, jelly, mud, whatever floats your boat.

:( Umm now I know I look silly on this point as I just sent Caught at Work an email and now have found what I was looking for.

We seem to need another adjudication on Tennis:

As I asked previously and got this response.

Do Co-ords for a puzzle ending in .000 and .000 meet the requirements? (not the solved co-ords obviously)

23: Tennis
Find and log a geocache that has any two of the following number combinations in the listed cache waypoint in order to claim this requirement. 00, 15, 30, 40. The number combinations can appear anywhere in either the latitude or longitude but must appear as consecutive numbers.

Any two is the requirement.
You have met only 1 (being 00).
However Laighside Legends asked:
Does S34° 55.400 E138° 36.300 count for tennis?
But the response was:

Yes.
Seems same question with 2 answers?

I don't see the same question. Yours was 000 and 000 to give 00 from either one but the other is 400 and 300 to give 40 & 30.

Unless your puzzle was in the E116+ range you should have got a 15 to go with the 00.

One of them is me, part of my strategy :lol: . With all caches listed prior to 1st July approx 80 kms away from home, and both of us working, we decided the marathon was unachievable :( even if we logged mostly locationless.

Aiming for 29/30, and having fun doing the same =D> , although I've voted Greg to do the wading/swimming :twisted: .

Surely caught@work will give us a bonus for jumping in the Goulburn River on a frosty winters morning [-o< [-o< .

Us too although we're not over 250 yet, we will be with what's left of the other requirements. With how busy life gets, the weather etc etc etc we decided we probably wouldn't achieve the marathon and then we would be really stuck with not enough high pointers left for the rest of the requirements if we had based our previous points around doing the marathon. So with this in mind we are also aiming for 29/30 but if we decide to chicken out of the wading one then 28/30..... and mainly just lots of fun in the process!! :wink: lol
