BCGA Cache Blitz 2007 -- Instructions

blitzinstruct  

Please read the instructions below before you place a blitz cache.


How to Place a Blitz Cache:

Read the GROUNDSPEAK GUIDELINES carefully and submit a cache to gc.com in the same way you would normally.  Only caches that meet the Groundspeak guidelines will be appicable for the BCGA Cache Blitz.  There are three additional steps to ensure your cache is entered in the Cache Blitz.

The first step involves the Title / Header of your cache.

Step #1)  Insert: Blitz 07: at the beginning of the header followed by a colon and your cache name.  This lets us know that you are submitting a cache especially for the Blitz.

Your header should read:  Blitz 07: name of your cache

If you wanted to call your cache "Unlimited Ducks" your header would look like this

Blitz 07: Unlimited Ducks

Step #2)  Next, choose your location.  This will show us what region in BC you live and which location you will will most likely attend a BCGA Blitz Event.  This is important for voting procedures as each region will have separate prizes.  Place the region code on the bottom of your cache page.

LM: Lower Mainland
TO: Thompson/ Okanagan
FV: Fraser Valley
CC: Cariboo / Chilcoltin
KR: Kootenay / Rockies
NO: Northern BC
IS: Vancouver Island South
IN: Vancouver Island Central and North.

Step #3) The BCGA has developed a way for cachers to vote for your cache as they log their find.  Directly under the Location code on the bottom of your page, insert this block:
 

<a href="http://www.bcgeocaching.com/index.php?name=Blitz&op=vote&gcid=YOUR_GC_ID_HERE"> <img src="http://www.bcgeocaching.com/images/pics/vote5.jpg"> </a>

In order for the button to specifically direct cachers to vote for your cache, you must replace where it says YOUR_GC_ID_HERE with your cache's GC ID.  Your GC ID is the seven digit number starting with GC on the top right corner of your cache page.    The GC ID for "Capital Cache", for example, is GC10WJB. 

This block will automatically display a button and link on your cache page.  If you live in the Vancouver area and plan on attending the Lower Mainland event your location code and Button will look like this:

LM

Your cache will be submitted manually by BCGA staff onto the Cache Blitz voting system.  Please ensure that you have followed the above instructions for your cache to be processed quickly.  Failure to do so may slow the process and cost you votes.

How to Submit an Early Cache


If you wish to get a head start, you may submit a cache early.

**NOTE** GROUNDSPEAK HAS RECENTLY CHANGED GUIDELINES FOR SUBMITTING EARLY CACHES.

The rules for early cache placement have been relaxed.

Do not write a reviewer note. Do not ask the reviewer to hold the cache. Simply submit a cache anytime after March 15th and it will be entered in the Blitz.

How to Vote for a Cache:

The BCGA is introducing electronic voting this year.  This will allow cachers to vote for each cache as they log their find.

Click on the VOTE button on the bottom of the cache page.  This will lead you to an automatic voting system.

You will  see several categories pertaining to all cache placements.  Rate the cache on each category using the scale provided (5 being the best and 1 being the least desirable).  If the category does not pertain to the cache, you can check the abstain button.

Click on the "SUBMIT" button and your vote will be automatically tabulated.
