Hi, I am with Virginia State Parks. We are setting up a new statewide geocaching game in all 35 of our parks across the state and are looking for some help from experienced cachers. Each park needs to set up a multi-cache that ends with a cache containing collector wildlife cards. As cachers collect cards, they can claim small rewards on our web site.

We are looking for volunteers to help with parks in your area: York River, Belle Isle, and Chippokes State Parks.

It's good to see some States getting involved instead of causing problems.

Sure is. So....how to tackle the beast. ONE of the State Parks is not exactly easy to get to, and would be rather interesting....look at False Cape State Park in Virginia Beach. Sounds like a good way to spend a week's vacation though.

Nice idea - but "claim a small reward on our website"? Hope they don't run into the commercial issues of cache placement.

I don't think it will. Since it is a public parks system and the reward is no different than an FTF prize.
Indecision is the key to flexibility.
