Just in case you missed the announcement last month... we will repost it here:

Oh Yes, the Blitz is Back, Baby!

The Blitz is undoubtedly a very highly anticipated event for many BC geocachers and this year it has been no different! The BCGA Executive have received many questions about whether there will be a Blitz this year and when.

The Executive have already met once for preliminary planning and we will meet again to finalise some of the details. In the meantime, this is what I can announce:

Blitz Start Date will be May 15th, 2011. Caches can be placed up to the July 1st long weekend to be in consideration for the Blitz prizes. Voting will take place up until August 2nd (midnight).

The voting system has yet to be ironed out, but we are considering a system where several caches can be nominated and then one winner chosen.

As for the categories, we are looking into adding more and changing up the ones we have used in the past.

The BCGA are already looking into the prizes and certificates. We are very excited about the upcoming Blitz and we will post the details once we have more information.

Now here is where you come in - we need cache hide categories.
Here are some off the top of my head:

Jester Funniest new cache!
Lightbulb Cleverest new cache!
Camera Most picturesque location!
Sheep best cache involving livestock!
Yuck most unpleasant new cache!
Treasure biggest new cache!
Trophy shiniest new cache!
Smack doh why didn't I think of that new cache!

You get the idea? No you do better! Give us some categories and start planning those new placements!   full article.

Will we be expected to have a header -- "Blitz11:" or something like that to identify our caches as Blitz hides?

I think the standard has been B11: Cache Name Here. And then there should be a link to the voting also just as in previous years. Smile

We will post the details as we get closer to the date. Thanks for the reminder. Smile
