I agree, your Christmas caches are rather large and loud, even if only for a few weeks, so they need a special spot to survive the holidays!
Looking forward to another Christmas Eve or Day sortie to find your hide....

Hi Lib
Thx for the suggestion.
Actually, we did re-use one of the sites - 2 years ago I think.
Save for last year's cache, none of the others are very attractive for re-use e.g. muggle prone.
Fortunately we now think we have a spot.
But it would be nice to have something in the bank too.
Ottawa is getting pretty geo-saturated, especially with the restrictions we have.
We may have to start going further afield.

Have you considered re-using one of the past locations?

For example Santa's Christmas Tree 2011 cache is archived and Santa's Christmas Tree 2012 is still holding the GZ. Would replacing one of these with the 2017 be easier than locating a new space?

Lynnewill and her elves have been putting out a Santa's Christmas Tree cache since 2012 - latest is GC6XWVP.

We're despairing of finding a location for the 2017 version. It has to be Christmasy, winter accessible for kiddies but reasonably muggle proof.

Can anyone suggest a location in the Ottawa area?
Or perhaps you can archive one of your existing caches to free up a suitable site.

All suggestions gratefully welcomed. An email directly to lynnewill may be best.
Thx in advance.

Since it is Halloween, there will be no event on this Tuesday's date.

Instead, we'll see you all at the GIFF 2017 event at Dovercourt on Nov. 2, 2017.

Xira FTW! :-)

Here's the content of a reviewer note that CS posted on one of my GAG25 caches prior to publication:

Hi there!
I noticed a tiny wording issue which.... would likely have me yelled at for being inconsistent :)

Placed with the intention of being found for GAG25 which starts/on October 13th @ 6pm = :)
I look forward to reading your logs after 6:00 p.m. on Friday, October 13, 2017. = :(

The former implies a preference of when the cache can be found/logged.
The latter loosely implies an instruction as to when the cache can be found/logged.

It's covered here ->

How about the text...
"This cache has been placed for the GAG25 event and is intended to be found on or after 6:00 PM on the 13th of October, 2017. I look forward to reading your logs".

...then we should be good to go!

Thanks for your understanding.
Yes. I know. But I'd rather be eye rolled before it's Published vs. after!


When RCA777's note appeared here, my eyes rolled because I find the semantics to be, well, semantics. Thus the eyerolling GIF. Don't read anything into the name of the GIF! It's just the eyerolling.

Then I noticed something. Notice the text that CS recommends I use, which I did. But RCA777 doesn't like that very text. It's very strange that CS and RCA777 don't agree. What does that say about semantics?
