General Caching / Geocaching Log Ratings
« Last post by Griff Grof on January 10, 2019, 09:54:16 am »
You can now rate geocache logs based on their story and usefulness.

What do you think? Hopefully it will encourage better quality logs.

Edit to add: odd, they only appear on some cache listings, and not on others.

Another edit: seems to be limited to certain countries, all caches in Norway seem to show it.

greyhound - FTF hound, puzzle hound, grey -  not standing out while caching, fast (they are the second fastest land animal) - visiting the most caches :P

'Racing Hounds' and there's no greyhound :o :o :o :o :o ???

Greyhounds, as well as other breeds, were considered but after much discussion we opted for these four, mainly because of the geocaching-related puns (eg retriever, tag to be retrieved the most times).

CacheWalker TB races / Alternative TB race - ‘Racing Hounds’
« Last post by Griff Grof on January 07, 2019, 11:37:14 pm »
I thought I’d post this here given that we aren’t running a TB race this year  :(

The Geocaching Association of Great Britain (GAGB) are running a trackable race throughout 2019.

The theme is ‘Racing Hounds’, and there are four breeds to choose from. All tags are entered into the main race, in which the tag that travels the furthest wins (much like our CW races).

However, each breed has its own goal. So your breed is also competing with others of its breed to be crowned ‘Best of Breed’:

  • Retriever: the prize for the dog tag that is picked up the most times.
  • Pointer: the dog tag that has the most ‘discover’ logs.
  • Setter: the dog tag that clocks up the most mileage without leaving the British Isles.
  • Boxer: The TB that is dropped off or visits the most caches that are ‘small', 'regular' or 'large'.

Tags cost Ł5.50 each and part of the profit will be donated to upcoming UK Mega events!

The race begins on January 12th, and will launch at GAGB’s ‘Start the Year’ event in Keyworth (GC7X2V9), where the tags will also be on sale. They’re also available to order online now! You can join at any time  - doesn’t have to be this weekend.

It should be a lot of fun and a good substitute for our CW race until it hopefully returns next year - and the money goes towards a good cause, supporting the UK Mega’s!

CacheWalker TB races / Re: CacheWalker TB Race 2018

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?  :)
