Your nominations for August 2012 Cache of the Month are:

Mystery Cache Icon GC2AHD4: The Vault by carxman
Nominated By: Sharknose Bunnies

I'd like to nominate carxman's The Vault for August 2012 Cache of the Month.

Maybe this one already has been nominated previously, but I'm surprised it hasn't won yet. It's been out quite a while now, but is a fantastic and fun field puzzle that is expertly executed and accessible to all.

It's got 89 favorite points on it, which makes it the third most favorited cache in Minnesota, behind only The Sword In The Stone and Mall of America Cache IV. Its time has come! The Vault for August 2012 COTM!


Mystery Cache Icon GC2K5E3: Boreal Walker's 300th Hide by Boreal Walker
Nominated By: sparkyfry

I'd like to nominate Boreal Walker's 300th Hide. Saying too much about this one would give away the surprise, but it took several of us well over a year to complete it after we found the first stage. Lots of work went into this one and it deserves some recognition!


Multi Cache Icon GC2T2RB: The Gauntlet - Child's Play by seldon
Nominated By: A-body

I'd like to nominate The Gauntlet - Child's Play by Seldon

GC2T2RB

This is a well executed 6 stage multi in the beautiful Canon River Wilderness Area between Northfield and Faribault. Like the title says, child's play, all the stages could be completed by a child yet still challenging for an adult. It involves a 3 mile hike, and approx 3 hours of your time, but talk to anyone that has completed the "gauntlet" and all will agree that this is a must do. There are also 2 other gauntlet multi's in this park along with about 30 other caches so there is plenty to do.


If you have any words/reviews for any of the caches up for voting, please share then here by posting a reply...

Voting will be open till the end of the month*. Good luck to all the nominees and keep those great caches coming!

*Note: Due to how the polling works in phpBB the poll may be open for some time past 11:59:59 pm on the last day of the month, or may end sometime during the last day of the month. While we will do what we can to make sure this poll stays open through the month, there is no reason to wait till the last minute. You get one vote and it counts the same no matter when you make it. When a poll is open it is set to be open for a certain number of days, so if for some reason the poll can't be open right at 11:59:59 (say a production issue at work, busy with non-caching activities, feel asleep, etc) then there may be some 'bonus' voting time.

Wow - of the three nominations, two have been nominated in the past (one of them is on its fourth go-around)!

Good luck all!

My idea of a COTM is one that can be found by the majority of cachers, but is still a memorable find.
