Well - I think we're ready,

Great Confuzzled Rush Registration


We will be asking for everyone to pre-pay this year as it will allow us to ensure we have the funds to do everything.

Ground Zero will be at the camp grounds in Coalmont (those there the first year will remember).

Event Days July 1 - 3rd, 2010, you can arrive earlier & stay later if you'd like at the same location.

You can arrive as part of the "event" on the 30th of June.

See you all there!

Sorry Allan,

You weren't first.. Smile That honor goes to another cacher - you got 5th!

As an interesting statistic - now 12 hours later we have 8 registered groups with 22 people confirmed already. Including a new one that wasn't there last year - shaping up to be a good start.

Event Date correction in original post is 2011 (I couldn't type last night).

Packages will be started to hand out on Thursday Night this time - going to trust that we can all be well behaved. Book will be a bit smaller but in color this time. And will be your guide to the games.. Smile Therefore mandatory one copy per registration, additionals can be arranged.

Anyone wanting stand alone orders of books (from all 3 years) or coins, go to the same link it is there for you. Artwork & Logo for Coin are still to come, but we guarantee it will be as likeable as last years.

e-mail me with any questions at mrsturtle at shaw.ca

I will be gathering "crews" in the next few weeks to sign up for specific duties. Watch your e-mail box.. lol if there is something you would like to do specifically - please let me know and we can work it in - like Restless's Challenge last year! - or if you want a geo wedding.. lol


See you all soon - off on a get away weekend now

We could make it an event. Find 10 hockey loving geocaching males, you go caching with each of them during the weekend and pick the best one and **poof** Mr. and Mrs. Goaliegirl before Monday morning. Iron Maiden thinks it could work.

Yes, while Mr. Wilson is a very nice young man, he has a lot of caching to do before he settles down! Very Happy

lol..

A couple of other notes:

1. Poker will be occuring - limited to 40 players this year, after we receive your registration we will reply back clarifying if you would like to play and a few other questions (we will start doing this in a few weeks). First come first served, if you haven't registered yet or aren't ready - send me an e-mail

2. The logo/coin design is being worked on as we speak by a very very close friend! As soon as it is ready we will announce it.

3. I spent the weekend doing the "rough outline" of how it will work - and that has been decided on - it will be fun.. Smile if all manage to make it to fruition (will be announced as they are completed so I don't promise something and can't make it happen. There will be "7" adventures, we figure most people will do about 4 of them and spend the rest of the weekend "caching" and catching up. But you will be welcome to try them all out.

Event Has been Officially Submitted to Groundspeak now -


coord.info/GC2M265

Stay tuned for it to arrive in your recently published caches.

Benny - Coalmont isn't far. I'm sure if you can make your way via Greyhound to Princeton again we can find a way to get you up to Coalmont so you can join others.

A quick update

The first 20 Ammo Cans for Placement will be arriving soon to us with 30 more waiting. Swag has been collected to place in them.

Artwork is with artist for coin

I am organized with Registrations now (sorry for the delay)
Restless10101 & Short Red are working on a few things & Mr. Catapult Jeff & Iron Maiden and I are working on a few things.

Where I need help:
Do you have creative writing skills? Are you good at creating puzzles that an "average" cacher can solve?, Can you build a treasure Map that you have to figure out where to find the cache?

Please remember though that you can not have to be einstein to solve & you must be able to solve without the aid of internet or reference materials.

Even beautiful funny, hilarious stories to go with a cache would be great!

If you fit this please let me know, I will provide coordinates for you and you will get credit on cache page.


Next Tasks:

Update Poker Player List

Put together start of Registration Packages

Design Buttons

Work on KVR Story write up for your challenges going up there to figure out coordinates.. This will go from tulameen to Brookemere

Other items are also being worked on.. See you all soon!

Note to all geocachers attending the Great Confuzzled Rush. Try not to trample on Mr. Wilson too hard on the way to the FTFs. We want to keep him because he may be a future BCGA President.

It doesn't matter what you do with the goat. **snarfle**

I registered long ago. Get on it. We all know that this is the event of the century.

I need an inner tube if anyone has a spare.

I want to raft down the river.

Official registration will be ending on Tuesday at midnight, we have sent out advance notice of one of the puzzles to those who are pre-registered and will be sending out a few more of the clues as the event nears.

We look forward to the event, as it will be the last one for me(at least for a few years). Jordy's almost done with the truck - so that means I can go back to travel, actually caching myself and writing again.. Smile

Coins have arrived (darren of the Beanz did the artwork), Books are at printers and Nina And Darren are doing the t-shirts and going above and beyond (as they do so very often) to help me get it all together. A huge kudo's to them for all their help.

Only thing that might not happen, unfortunately, is river floating as river is still too high for me to reccomend it - and snow too low..

But a great time will be had by all! See you in a little over a week!

Sending out my "Event Wrap Up" tonight, I'm sure I'm going to miss a few things - so I fully apologize and it may be lengthy but worth the read.. Smile

First - 50/50 winner is still outstanding, last 4 digits 0503(if memory serves) prize is $191 - scan me the ticket and I"ll get a check to you. If no winner surfaces funds will be put towards Stave Lake Clean Up next year.

I also still have books, coins and t-shirts (Large & XL) available, will be putting coins up on ebay next week - please let me know if you want one. Going to Shuswap this weekend and will have a few with me.

I have thank yous for those that went above and beyond to help, but they haven't arrived yet.. lol

Thank you's -

To Ernie the campsite host, yes he forgot the portapotties, but none the less a great spot.
To Northern Fire Works for their help in supporting such an awesome show
To PG Goldwing for putting on and arranging it
To the 50/50 buyers for helping to pay for it
To Ryan (Chewy) for the Maps
To Wild Wiggly Beans for the coin Design & T-shirts
To Worldcaching for the lock & locks & Micro's that no one wants to see again
To Rpayment for replacing the one that went missing
To Catapult Jeff & Iron maiden for helping place caches and keep me from nervous breakdown
To GoalieGirl38 for helping me avoid nervous breakdown
To Gearhedd for Poker arranging it again
To the cachers who replaced the swimming cache
To Teddy for getting us at 1:30 AM to go on a rescue mission (next time open door and get us.. lol)
To Titelines & T@bbywmn for getting lost we found a really cool route and cabin!
To Savant 9 for the photo contest for those uploading pictures to www.flickr.com/groups/1702923@N20/
To the guardian angels who kept everyone safe and made no big mishaps occur
To all the cachers who came, who saw, who cached & help support this event and make it what it is with no commericialism.. and one of pure heart.
To the cachers who are uploading pictures and sharing with me the moments that I couldn't be there to see

For next year, I am hoping that someone will take the reins and run with it, I will be more then happy to help but am hoping someone will be the main organizer, perhaps even a change in location could work. This event, the getting everyone together is an amazing thing to see, to share, to be a part of - I am hoping it will continue on (personal motive to win poker and more coins!) So if you're interested in taking the lead let me know and we'll talk.. Smile

The rest of the summer you'll see me returning to what I love - actually caching - next Stop Shuswap!

Cache on and 42 everyone.. Smile (PS even though the Alphabet Cache has an FTF - anyone who claims it will get prizes from us.. all that work deserves something to cement it)
