The GEOregon 2014 "favorites" Cache Challenge
This is Ornith's Favorite Cache Challenge

Rule 1: this Contest is open to GEOregon members and GEOregon members only. Consider it one of your member benefits.

Rule 2: the Contest runs from January 17, 2014, to the next GEOregon club meeting after January 17, 2015. Only caches set between those dates are eligible for prizes.

Rule 3: since I (Ornith) like unknowns, multis, and letterboxes, this Contest is to prove how good those cache types can be. Only those cache types will be consider for awarding prizes.

Rule 4: there will be three prizes: $50, $30, $20. All prizes will be awarded based on the descending order of the number of favorites that a qualified unknown, multi, or letterbox-hybrid cache type receives in the contest time period. The most favorites win. If there is only one qualifying cache, that cache owner claims $100.

Rule 5: multiple entries by a cacher are permitted and solicited.

As last year's contest was based on the number of favorites that a cache receives, so shall this year's contest. The three caches that receive the most favorites during the contest period will be declared winners of the first, second, and third prizes.

"Qualified' means entered by a GEOregon member during the contest period.

If you have questions, please contact Ornith.
