      Even though I was working my tail off and didn't get to cache the Fredericksburg Challenge very much, I've got to say I was positively corrupted by that format. A CHALLENGE for those inclined -- the orienteering mode that we know and love/hate -- and lots of showcase caches for those who don't want to challenge. I know that folks love to wave the regional flag, but I guess I've moved too many times to get all patriotic about a single region. [Doesn't mean I don't LOVE you all!]
      Now, obviously, that didn't work for a lot of people, or it would have been repeated. So desu.
      But, Julie, Kevin, and ALL the great committee people -- THIS Tygress thought it rocked.
      As for local challenges -- you have to find people with the energy.  Did you go to the 10th Anniversary event? Many caches were placed out for that.
      Did you go to Semper Q's event on 10/10/10? There was a challenge aspect to that.  At this point, I'm more interested in the social aspects -- though in a less eventful year can see myself doing the orienteering/challenge thing again.   But laying out challenges is a HUGE amount of work... which is why we move the big Challenge around the state. [Speaking of which -- I have the CenTex orienteering punches, should there be a call for them.]

      Damn send button!� I don't look forward to the challenge for the challenge more than I look toward to meeting others cachers on the crossroads.� I love caching a new place too.

      The problem with making them all loggable is that many people on the hide committee don't live close to the challenge either, and that makes them hard to maintain.

      It bothers me when people complain about them not being loggable.� You mean to tell me that the 4 hours of fun you have doing the challenge affects your overall impression of the weekend long events because you lose 4 hours of caching time?� I don't look forward to the challenge for the challenge
