I would like to know how to limit the area that the GCBA cache alert covers. I don't mind finding out about new caches on the Island or in Castlegar, and Nelson. But I'm not going to be FTF or be travelling there in the near future. So if anyone knows a way to narrow down my search area, any hints would be great.

If you add your home coordinates using "Cache Alert Setup" on the BCGA home page, it will show you the distance of each cache from your home in the email. If will not filter out caches that are not in your area, but at least you will know right away how close they are to you.

O.K. I have been to the BCGA home page but I do not see the link for cache alert set up.
