      This is the 3rd year we have been having our Quick Finders Competition (QFC). This year Krypton and geocaching did not want to "encouracge" other to hide caches by playing this game.

      We are playing the game but Geocaching and Krpton don't have to endorse it. I am posting here for those folks that might want to to play along. I will tell you that there are some excellent caches in this series so far and we are up to 8 of 20.

      Here is how the original page looked so you can get a feel for the game:

      "Here is the way the game is played. (Slightly different from last year's QTF competition) This is the initial cache hidden, find it.
      Each player's score will begin on this cache.
      Each of first fifteen (15) finders receives a score (which will be kept on this page updated each Saturday) and the cacher with the highest score at the end of twenty caches will be the winner of a special prize at the event cache at the end of the competition.

      The scoring method is designed to include a lot of people in the game and besides we all (at some point) have lives that can get in the way of an FTF attempt. But you still want to be quick to find, to score maximum points.

      The points scoring goes like this:
      FTF AND the hider (cache owner) – 5 points
      (Yes, five points for the FTF AND for the hider of the next cache)
      Second and Third – 4 points
      Fourth and Fifth - 3 Points
      Sixth and Seventh– 2 Points
      Eighth through Fifteenth - 1 Point



      Co-FTF? In a series like this a Co-FTF can complicate issues. So here is the suggestion. Try to make the call on the FTF.
      If there are a few people looking for the cache at the same time when the cache is found, how do you decide who is second, third etc.? I don't know. Draw straws? Rock-paper-scissors? If you want, maybe you add all the points together and divide by the number people finding. Just let me know how you want it done when you log the find.

      If a cacher finds a cache but is not in the competition (has not found QFC #1) then that cacher will not receive a score on that cache. If someone joins in on the fun on a later cache and wants to be part of the competition, just let me know and I will include you. The more the merrier.

      For the first cache – I will be applying the same scoring method as with all subsequent caches. Therefore, I start with 5 points for hiding.

      Bobolu says – "Let's have fun, since that is what this hobby is about"

      If, as the caches go on, there is a problem with your or any score on the series, please let me know via email.


      If you want to find quality cachesn look for these. Our code is that er of the next cache in cache know it is part of the series. (look for a 9 - published by Eswolf for the next cache.
