Can't give away too much information all at once. More details will be listed in the next week or so. :-" :-"

I'm a bit devo that the 5x starts when I get back to no-caches-left-centralwestnsw. I'll try to hide a few more but I can't promise anything. I think there may be 2 unlisted long-bush-bashing trigs within 100km from home too.

If anyone wants to leave movables out here on their way to or from the Mega they are more than welcome to. [-o<

I'm in Dubbo but anywhere central west NSW is closer and easier (workwise) for me to get to than Sydney and Canberra.

You're not alone there. J and I will be heading up to the Riverland for a couple of nights over Easter, where there are 13 to 15 GCA caches we will be focusing on.

We will be back to "found-nearly-everything-in-Adelaide" right on cue with the commencement of the bonus period.

That's the way the cookie crumbles, as they say.

We're heading your way J_&_J and hope to leave you a dozen or so moveables soon. A little early for the games but maybe they will stay in place until you need them.

I had to smile when I read the message about the extra Commonwealth Games points ... I live in Commonwealth Games central, in fact my street is 'locked in' for the two road cycling events. No traffic in or out between 4am to 7pm on two separate days. In addition I have one cache now disabled because they are building the beach volleyball court right over the top of GZ. With the increased traffic, and road and lane closures in places, I'd just planned on hibernating at home for the duration.

Maybe I might attempt to venture out - there is only so much gardening and painting that can be done before you either run out of paint or need to visit the transfer station.... caches at the dump and Bunnings?????

Oh well! ](*,)

2 questions already.

What date will the challenges be released?
Will they all be published at once?

Someone should organise a Geosportz launch event for Sunday at the mega... Or *near* the mega to be politically correct...

But but but... what if there are no unfound geocaches anywhere near home and the 1st is my only chance to do the find challenges and I happen to have found all the eligible ones on my route home before the first because I wasn't aware they would be eligible???????? :cry: [-o<
