CacheWalker TB races / Re: CacheWalker TB Race 2018
« on: January 05, 2019, 03:56:13 pm »
The 'CacheWalker TB Race 2018: Signal on Tour' winners:

First place: walk tall (13,702 miles)

Second place: Hogshunters (6,026.3 miles)

Third place: Avanclan (983.51 miles)


Unfortunately, we're not running a TB race this year. This is partly due to the closure of the tb-run website. Hopefully there'll be another CacheWalker race in the future - perhaps next year?  :)

As you might be aware, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on May 25.

Whilst we are not a company or a business, we do store some personal data. We can assure you that we look after your data securely.

With the help of our forum service provider, a privacy policy is now available on our website, which can be found here: https://bit.ly/2wSLzaO

It is extensive and covers all possible ground - the vast majority of it refers to how the service might use your data rather than CacheWalker itself. Please read it carefully to understand how the forum uses and protects any information you provide, either upon registration and/or as subsequent profile edits.

If you do not agree with this policy, you are, of course, welcome to delete your account (at any point in time). You have the right to be forgotten.

CacheWalker TB races / CacheWalker TB Race 2018
« on: January 02, 2018, 12:00:49 pm »
This is the place for all discussion (unless you think your point deserves its own topic) for the
CacheWalker TB Race: Signal on Tour (name TBC)

The TB race will begin at 0:00 January 8th, and will end on 0:00 December 25th.
Participants received a special trackable tag from volunteer reviewers at the 2017 CacheWalker Twixmas Bash. These tags will be placed in caches and the TB which travels the furthest will win!
If you want, you can attach a Signal/frog related item to your TB tag, but there is no requirement to do so.

The Rules:

  • The race officially begins at 0:00 on January 8th 2018. However, TBs can be added to the race at any point after this start date.
  • The race is on until 0:00 December 25th 2018
  • The TB with the most miles on this date will be declared the 2018 Winner at the 2018 Twixmas Bash (apparently there will be one!)
  • CacheWalkers may not move their own tags along.
  • Therefore, TBs must be dropped & collected by different cachers (if moved on by the same cacher only the FIRST jump will be counted).
  • The owner of the TB must not be present with the cacher who's moving it IF they both visit the same cache together for the drop.
  • 'Discover/Visted' logs do not count.
  • CacheWalkers can only have ONE TB each in the race (unless a couple/family are wishing to have their own).
  • If your TB goes missing YOU ARE OUT OF THE RACE - you cannot re-release another trackable tag as part of this year's race.

The official TB-run page for the race is now up and running here - CWTBR 2018

How to join the race:
Please email griffgrof@cachewalker.co.uk or Griff Grof via his profile with the public Trackable ID (TBxxxx), that you find on the 'Details' page of your TB on Geocaching.com.
There no limit for the number of participants.
You can still request to take part after the start date, but the sooner the better/further!


Please name your TB in this format: CW: Signal on Tour (your caching name)

Let the race (and discussion) begin - 3,2,1... GO!

Caching Events / CacheWalker Events - 2017
« on: December 31, 2016, 01:03:57 pm »
    List of all planned/suggested CacheWalker Events - 2017

    A thread to record all events planned/proposed/mentioned for this year, from any ideas, discussion and posts on this forum. The list will be promptly edited as and when is needed. Anyone wishing to hold a CacheWalker event other than us regulars can therefore see when would be a sensible time to organise one. Any notable Group Meets (with NO listed event) will also be listed.

    This is a provisional list. 2017 is CacheWalker's 10th Anniversary year, so a varied 'CacheWalker hits 10' programme of events will hopefully take place! All events on this list (posted in Dec 2016) are ideas that have not been discussed (yet) amongst all members, so are subject to change. The list will be updated as plans are confirmed.
