I found out about this via Facebook:
Maple Grove Geocache Adventure
April 26th to May 25th (the site still says May 11th, but they extended it due to the week of rain we had)

"#5 has been temporarily suspended until the park trails are no longer submerged"

"Because we lost the first week to excessive H2O the event period will be extended to May 25th. All passports are due at partner-business locations or via e-mail, by June 6 to be eligible for the event medallion and prizes."

"Those who find some of the most difficult caches will be rewarded by discovering gift cards and certificates to local businesses inside. These will be replenished throughout the three-week event period, so no need to rush. The first 50 geocachers who discover every cache, collect a stamp for their passport from inside, and submit a completed passport will receive a commemorative event medallion (one medallion per person/passport). They will also be part of a drawing for prizes from REI."

Not all the coords have been posted yet. It seems there have been a few typos so far and lots of coords are off by 50 feet and some wound up under water form all the rain...that being said. I went out and tried to get all 20 that are posted over the weekend and got 15 of them. I had a blast! I can't wait to go out next weekend to get more. I'm so glad I have google maps on my phone - Maple Grove streets are confusing!

Also, I guess some (or all?) of these are eventually going to be on geocaching.com to log smileys as well.
