A Lonely Cache Challenge is an friendly game designed to encourage cachers to visit some of the region's less visited caches. Often, these caches present unique difficulty and terrain challenges that discourage the average geocacher from visiting.
Every Friday, the five most lonely caches will be posted on WPAGA.com. The first cacher / caching group to find each cache while it is posted as a Lonely Cache will earn a point. Cachers may attempt as many Lonely Caches as they want. At the end of the round (6/12/2015), the cacher with the most points wins. Caches found the previous week will be removed from the list and replaced with the next top lonely caches.
A lonely cache is defined as one of five active geocaches within thirty miles of the convergence of Pittsburgh's three rivers that have not been logged for the longest period of time. Event caches, disabled, and archived caches are excluded.
Hiders and previous finders of a given cache are not eligible to score a find on that cache.
The cache must be found after it is posted as a Lonely Cache in order for a point to be awarded.
Bonus points may be announced to encourage participation on specific days or toward specific lonely caches. There will be no application of bonus points to finds that have already occurred.
Winning will result in a winning while cheating will result in disqualification.
Scorekeeper reserves the right to adjust posted rules and add/remove caches in order to improve gameplay. How to Play
1.) Watch for the current LCC listings to be posted on WPAGA.com every Friday.
2.) Go out and find a cache on the LCC list and log your find! Take ample photos and have fun! 'Should be Archived' notes are discouraged. If you can't find it, just let someone else try.
3.) If you are the first person to find the cache after it was posted as an lonely cache, let us know. You will earn one point!
4.) Keep on caching!The Lonely Caches: The day before the big feast
