PAGE IN DRAFT as at 13/10/06. Wait a day or so before flaming me please!
A few cachers have an interest in challenging themselves to achieve a caching record. The most obvious of these is to try and find the most caches in a single day.
Most finds in a Day
The record holders for the most caches found in a single day in Australia are:
- Rabbitto found 33 on 20th November 2004
- teamkittens found 43 on 1st January 2005
- Rhinogeo and Facitman found 44 on 8th February 2005
- Rabbitto found 56 on 12th March 2005
- Actsyouthgroup found 77 on 7th October 2005
- HawMorFords found 101 on 16th September 2006
Here's my (Facitman) suggested set of guidelines for consideration and agreement so as to try and setup a standard to be used by all record attempt.
- A record must occur on a single calendar day. Midnight to Midnight.
- (ensures all logs are listed on the same date)
- Only caches that have a physical container can be included in the attempt, ie. locationless, virtual and webcam caches are ineligible
- Everyone travelling in the group is part of the Cache-raid. ie. No designated driver, no numbers man. If a person is travelling with the Cache-raid they are part of the Cache-raid
- The Cache-raid (ie All people involved in the attempt) must:
- Visit every cache, ie. be present at the log signing
- Not have attempted nor found the cache previously
- No one can join the Cache-raid part way through the attempt.
- Participants can drop out but once out they cannot rejoin. (Be nice to let tired people go home without invalidating the Cache-raid)
- If a cache has multiple waypoints each point must be visited as part of the attempt, no pre-finding of physical waypoints can occur by any members of the Caching Party
- If a cache requires research prior to attendance at the physical waypoints and/or cache then some or all members of the Caching Party can complete this activity. eg completing a puzzle presented on the cache page
- Only one member of the Caching Party needs to locate the cache ie. not everyone in the Party needs to independently find the box!
- The caching Party may not seek any support for finding the cache, ie no phone a friend calls for hints, locations or even DNF confirmations
- A DNF is a DNF, no cache no find. The Caching Party may not place a replacement cache for a lost cache then claim a find.
- The Caching Party must sign the logbook, a stamp or sticker can be used but the log must include a minimum of date, team name, find number for the day, time of the find
