Swans of Lonesome Lake
Swans of Lonesome Lake:  [?] . You might remember a book called "The Caruso of Lonesome Lake" where Ralph Edwards saved the BC Trumpeter swans from extinction from the 1920's to the 1950s. It was almost required reading for our generation in elementry school in the 70s. Edwards cabin burnt down in the BC fires of 2004. [M | C

The number of geocaching being submitted is growing every day around BC, and with the upcoming BCGA Blitz, the Shushwap Mass Cache Dash and others, your local reviewer team will be working overtime to keep up!

To help us review your caches quickly and efficiently, and make sure that your perfect spot is available for your cache, please read the Geocaching Guidelines. If it’s been awhile since you last looked through them, be sure to re-read them before you get out there for your spring cache hides — there have been lots of recent changes and updates to the guidelines that you’ll want to know about before you go out to place your new caches.

Along with a good knowledge of the guidelines, take a few minutes to make sure you’ve entered everything necessary on your cache page:

? Double-check your coordinates. You’d be surprised how many cachers make typos in the all-important coordinates for their caches.
? Check to see if there are existing caches nearby. While it won’t point out the finals of multicaches and puzzles, using the “show other nearby caches” function on your cache page will help you quickly spot other caches that are too close. Remember that your cache must be a minimum of 161 metres or 528 feet away from all other physical cache waypoints and final locations.
? If your cache has additional waypoints (multicache waypoints) or secret final locations (puzzle/mystery caches), be sure to enter those using the “edit waypoints” link on your cache page. These will not be visible to anyone but you and the reviewers, but we won’t be able to review your cache without them! You can also use the “edit waypoints” link to add coordinates for parking, trailheads, or other reference points to help cachers find your geocache.
? Don’t forget to add attributes to your cache page, too! Click the “edit attributes” link to add one or several icons for trail conditions, amenities, warnings, or other symbols. An important one to remember is the wheelchair icon, which should be used for all caches where a one-star terrain rating has been selected. If your cache is not wheelchair accessible, please be sure to choose at least a 1.5 star terrain rating!
? Lastly, please try to get your caches submitted as early as possible before your event deadline. It will help the reviewers get all the caches checked over in time, and also will lock in your location — the cache with the lowest GC number has priority over a location when there are multiple caches submitted in the same spot at the same time.

Thanks, and have fun!
