GAG22 - November 8th 2014
« on: September 21, 2014, 20:23:46 »
GAG22 Title Graphic

Saturday November 8th, 2014
18:00 - 20:30
Richelieu-Vanier Community Centre
Kiwanis Hall
300 Des Pères-Blancs
Vanier
  • Everyone who wishes to participate in this event should head out to find as many GAG22 caches as they can from 6:00 PM, Friday November 7th until 6:00 PM Saturday November 8th. Don't get caught starting before 6:00 PM or you will be the victim of much taunting and ridicule!

  • At 6:00 PM on the 8th after a LONG day of caching, we will meet at the Richelieu-Vanier Community Centre, Kiwanis Hall ( 300 Des Pères-Blancs, Vanier - posted coordinates).  It is a bring your own food and drink event! (See below for some suggestions).

  • If you want to contribute by creating a cache (that is totally optional and up to you, keep in mind that all the usual cache listing guidelines apply and that you will have to maintain the cache afterwards, it is not just for the duration of the event), between now and October 30th, hide a cache in the Ottawa area. Please don't wait until the last minute; give the reviewers plenty of time to post all caches and our volunteers time to create a bookmark list. If you plan on placing a large number of caches for the event, submit the cache pages for all of the caches at least ten days in advance of the release date. Leave a "note to reviewer" indicating that the cache is to be released on the date specified. All caches placed for the event will be published no earlier than Wednesday afternoon, and no later than Friday afternoon November 7th, so you can plan your routes and solve any puzzles.

  • You should state on your cache page that your cache should not be found until after 6:00 p.m., November 7th. With the guideline changes in regards to ALRs (additional logging requirements) we cannot indicate that a log for caches found before 6:00 p.m. will be deleted, but you can be creative with your comments to strike fear into the cheaters. Ex: "Log this cache early and you will be fed to the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog!". Have fun with it.

  • Please help with cache identification by prefacing your cache name with GAG22, i.e. "GAG22 - The Gnomes who say Ni!".

  • When submitting your cache, leave a reviewer note asking them to place the cache in the HOLD FOR GAG22 PUBLICATION file for publication en masse with the other GAG22 caches.

  • You may want to consider hiding just one cache to keep the work down for the reviewers. Also, if you're placing a multi-cache and/or puzzle, be sure to use the "additional waypoints" feature on the cache creation page to allow reviewers quicker access to determining boundary limitations. The quicker they can get their job done, the more likely your cache will get published in time for the event. Note that most people want to find many caches during a GAG event, so multi-caches and/or puzzles that take several hours to solve are not usually very popular. If you're planning a long multi make it explicit in the cache description.  Also, geocaching.com has added several new attribute icons for caches.  Please make good use of the attributes on your cache page to help everyone during the hunt. Use the appropriate attributes  (winter- friendly or not, how long a hike, etc).  In particular, caches with terrain 1 should have the "wheelchair accessible" attribute.

  • Have any ideas to add to this event? Looking to volunteer some time to help? Have event related questions?
    Please send us an email
    through the "Canada's Capital Cachers GAG Committee" profile page at geocaching.com and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.

  • All caches will be listed as a bookmark link on the event page just prior to the event.

  • * DO NOT * bring swag / door prizes.  There will be a few door prizes awarded to attendees, but unlike previous GAG events, there will NOT be prize tables or tickets for general swag trading.

  • Please post a "will attend" note on the event page indicating if you can make it and how many will be in your party.

Suggested places to pick-up food before arriving at the hall

  • N 45° 26.352  W 75° 39.822 : Pizza, Submarines, etc...
  • N 45° 26.504  W 75° 40.334 : Subway

We've been missing out on the caching craze lately as things have been pretty busy. As of right now I would like to say that we will do our best to attend.

You've always got a good selection of goodies.

Might I suggest what *NOT to bring?  These.  Don't want any of these in Ottawa thanks.  ;D

I'm looking for a log roller and maybe a few nano's. 

Has anyone put a log on a grain of rice yet?

Great caches and super turnout! Well done everyone.

Now that the initial frenzy has passed it's time to go and check on your GAG22 caches! They probably got as many visitors on the weekend as they'll get all year.

Maintenance is always appreciated.
