BCGA Cache Blitz 2008


The Blitz is sponsored by:

Welcome to the Fourth Annual BCGA Cache Blitz.

This year we are happy to announce that the Cache Blitz will take place across the Province. 

What is the Cache Blitz?

It is a way to dust off the winter cobwebs and get out caching.  Between April 1st and May 4th, the BCGA is encouraging people to hide and seek caches.  The Blitz will culminate with several events scheduled across the province on the second weekend of May where you can meet local cachers and discuss some of those great new caches you visited.

Prizes Prizes Prizes!!!

Prizes will be awarded for the best cache placements.  Like last year the BCGA is stressing quality over quantity.  There will be no prize awarded for most cache placements.  You will have a better chance of winning a prize by placing one great cache rather than several mediocre ones.  It is a good idea to keep this in mind as the prizes get better every year.  Creativity and ingenuity will be rewarded.  A new twist for this year is that micro caches will not be allowed. We want you to think bigger!

Although the BCGA will be supplying several prizes, we depend heavily on the support of the geocaching public.  Prize donations are greatly appreciated.  Please contact your local representative if you plan on bringing a prize to your local event.

Prizes will be awarded in several categories which may include:

Camouflage -- The most popular caches take a page from "The Purloined Letter." These caches are basically out in the open but so well camouflaged they are virtually indistinguishable from their surroundings. Whether placed in the forest, a city park or on a park bench, a cache that blends in well with its environment is always a challenge and the most fun to find.

Hike -- was there an adventure in store on the way to the cache? A pleasant walk or a fufilling hike is big part of the outdoor experience.

Best View -- Sometimes we stumble upon that perfect spot. A waterfall, a garden, a mountain top view, or an area so pleasant it beckons us to stay. This category is dedicated to the special, out of the way places people find to place a cache.

Creative Web page -- Finding a geocache takes just as much time at the computer as out in the field. A creative web page adds to the overall experience.

Best Puzzle -- It's never easy to come up with a perfect cache puzzle. Some puzzles can be done at home while others have to be solved in the field. The best puzzles offer a challenge while still allowing the novice the opportunity to solve it.

Educational spot or Web page -- Although British Columbia is a young province, it is not without history. This category is dedicated to telling the story behind the area where the cache is placed.

New or Unique Innovations -- This category pertains to interesting ideas. People who placed the winning cache in this category truly thought outside the box when placing the cache. This category may include recent innovations in geocaching such as fire tack night caches or any new idea that makes the caching experience unique and enjoyable.

Overall -- This category goes to your top pick for best cache.

Prizes will be awarded at the Events to those in attendance.  If a prize winner is not present during an event the prize goes to a runner up in attendance.

How do I enter my cache in the Blitz?

The BCGA Cache Blitz is open to all cachers across the province.  Detailed instructions can be found on THE INSTRUCTIONS PAGE.  Please read the instructions carefully.  Voting procedures can also be found on the instructions page.

It is our hope that this will be the most successful Blitz to date.  We encourage geocachers across British Columbia to think outside the box when planning their cache hides.  Think creatively, respect the environment, and play safe.  Good luck to everyone.
