I'm one square away from having the two lines revealed in each direction. However, in order to win I have to do some things I would not normally do.

Hmmm.... am I in an adventurous mood?

It depends on how bad you want the badge of honour. If I won I'd grab that win badge with my name on it, print it on a t shirt, and wear it every time I cache with other players. **snarfle**

Yep yep yep yep yep. Perhaps I could get out the iron and print out a "I WON GEOBINGO t shirt.

I've had 2 lines in each direction revealed for some time now....They're just filled with 4.5's and 5's. It took me 13 days just to get a 2.5 d! Smack

Shortred is the first to finish a bingo card. Congratulations. Shortred will definitely get a badge in the hall of fame. However, I have to talk to the BCGA directors to see if the rules are the same in regards to the physical prize. Originally, I believe it was set up that nobody can win a physical prize within a six month period. So, until I hear from the directors the game is still in play.

Although shortred gets a nifty two star badge, the game is still in play so there will be two winners for this game. And yes, the next person to win will get in the hall of fame too. And they will get the nifty prize.

I always thought Gecko Cacher would be the first to win twice. Could he be off his game???

Sigh . . . as I learned today - a person can cache or a person can race. I know for a fact that I passed up at least 2 of the most difficult squares still remaining on my card during the Amazing Geo Race but I don't think I would change it one iota. Too bad I won't be able to get back to them any time soon. Oh well - the choices one makes.

Good luck everyone! SOMEONE has to get it!

Not me.

My card FINALLY put me in a position to actually have a chance to try to finish it this morning and off we headed. There are two nasty ones on my card that I needed to bump off & being on call this week, only a limited radius i could travel to try to get them. Sure enough, stop number one yielded a GZ being used as a campground. The wife convinced me that we should just go work on the second critical one (with the next closest cache meeting it's requirement a mere 27km away), yup, DNF baby. Even used PAF with no help. ARGH!

Back to the first one hoping the "campers" had used the hour or so to move on. No such luck.

Off to have lunch & drop the kidlet off & back to stop number one. No change.

Did a few more caches around & back to stop one - still no change.

Cant really complain, it was nice getting out to do some caches with the wife, havent done much since the GCR. But, this game.... <sheesh>

Hopefully someone puts us out of our misery soon.

And, if anyone happens to find a waterproof digital camera on the bottom near a 5x5 just outside the lower mainland i'll ID it & offer up a small reward for it even though i dont expect it to be in working condition by now...

D'Oh!!

Are the unrevealed Game 7 squares going to be revealed on our cards just so we can either be tortured by the "easy" ones we never got, or happy about the "hard" ones we managed to escape?

Thanks. I'm guessing that Game 8 will launch at 3:00 AM sometime soon?

Katcogo -- We will unlock all the squares shortly. Get ready for the next game.

**giggle** @ 3AM. What a good idea, Katcogo. Thanks for suggesting it. Yes, you have Katcogo to thank. **snarfle**

Darn, I just found some of the swimmers itch serries while on the amazing geo-race. Could have filled a couple more squares. Smack
