Congrats to all for completing the challenge and joining the AFC. You picked a wonderful Fall day for the celebration too!

Xira has already found the usual next 'bintharian' challenge cache, but http://coord.info/GCD73D awaits the rest of you. I have replaced the cache recently, and it has a fresh new logbook just waiting for finders.

There are also Xira's own March Highlands SMH Geometry caches to extend your 'binthair' style challenges. This is the best time of year for a hike in the woods too!

Congratulations all!  :D

Congratulations to the newest members of the club. I always thought this was the next logical cache in the series: http://coord.info/GC1BD5M but hey, to each his own  ::)  ;)

Thanks for the kudos, and the encouragement...to help with withdrawl?

I've got the initial info for Leprechaun.  Now that I know that the cache has been refreshed, I can give it an honest effort.

I agree that Xira's SMH Geometry series is worthy.

I've got a few more pegged as binthairian:

Two obvious ones are 'I've binthair' http://coord.info/GC1BD5M and 'Binthair's Triangle' http://coord.info/GCYRKV.  There's another two with 'binthair' in the title, but they are pretty far.

I remember seeing a GAG one which involved an insect flying making an ever expanding square. I had it started on a scrap paper, but never recorded the cache name...

From the description, 'Angelic chairs west of the Rideau?' http://coord.info/GC2H8MV, and lastly

Historic Ottawa - Edsel's Auto? http://coord.info/GC2CZMX

I'm sure its debatable, but for the ones listed, while an Internet search may/will help, you still need to put boots to the ground, and/or do the math.

Leprechaun has typically been the next one after the binthairs simply because it was published long before I've Binthair. Both are worthy, and both call for more get-togethers of recent AFC members to compile data, return to binthairs they lost info on...etc... ;)

I think you maybe thinking of GAG16 - Démystifier la sphère (2) http://coord.info/GC35QN1

Yeah, that was it....Thanks... It's in the other end of town for me, so that's why I haven't seen it for a while. The name wasn't obvious to me when I searched through a few GAG bookmarks.

Belated congrats (we just got back from BC) to all the new AFC members!  Looks like we may have to add a new wing on the clubhouse.  ;D

For post-graduate work in the binthairian mode, in addition to the suggestions others have made, we would recommend for your consideration Kirok's 1500th ( http://coord.info/GC25KM8 ).
