It's great, unexpected news. Nice to know that there's a chance to find a Locationless cache this year, even if we don't bump into Signal at a Mega (https://coord.info/GC8FR0G).

I wonder whether more Locationless caches created by HQ will follow in the years ahead.

General Caching / Lockdown from 5th Jan 2021
« Last post by walktall on January 04, 2021, 11:43:23 pm »
Updated 04/01/21 - England - National Lockdown

England - The UK Government on the 4th January 2021 announced new National Covid 19 Restrictions which will come into force 00:01 on the 5th January in England. In light of these new regulations, the UK Reviewing Team will suspend the publication of new caches in England from 00:01 5th January. This suspension will be reviewed when the Governments advice changes.

During this period we will also pause the cache reaping process in England. Caches that have a maintenance warning will not be actioned during this period.

There is no immediate need to disable caches, but it is of course up to each Cache Owner. We see no need to lock all caches. Please remember that it is against the Geocaching guidelines to allow a cache to be virtually logged e.g. by photo (unless a Virtual Cache). Allowing these types of logs is against the guidelines and may result in a cache being archived where it has been allowed. If you disable your caches, without removing them, you cannot delete logs if the logbook has been signed.

For further information on the English Coronavirus Guidelines, please visit the Government Website here.

Please continue to refer to this page for the latest Geocaching Publication updates during the Coronavirus Pandemic.

General Caching / Re: O Rings for bison tubes

Sorry, Walktall - meant to thank you for the info re 'o' rings - we are now the proud owners of 20 'o' rings! Also 50 little 1.5ml tubes for putting in caches - if anyone needs any of these let us know and can send some on - we are unlikely to need them all!!!

Because I published mine before the deadline, I've now been awarded another set of 5, to be published by the 15th Dec - this could be tricky and if I want a Bonus cache, it'll have to be right to the wire now GC England have decided to suspend new caches during lockdown :o

Is that not worth a question/an appeal to the reviewers and/or GCHQ?
At least if you have the 'cache' ready for publication, it's only the 'local laws' for Covid stopping it from being Published?
