I was there at 9:10am



****Super Douple Secret Probation Tip*****
Montana GPS Game computer's clock is off. Clues have been posted about 15 to 20 minutes prior to 9am. Hence, the early arrival times. Very Happy

Hmm.. Strange contest. Sounds like it's not even clear with the people running the show if you're the 1st one to get there or not.

Makes me wonder what the real point in trying is? Logistically a sticker is nice, but there's no way of visually finding out if you were there 1st, saving you a phonecall.

Ouch! Well that'll teach me for not taking this game seriously!! I live about a minute away from Tuesday's location and knew exactly where it would be as soon as I saw the map! Unfortunately that was about 12:40 pm! Of course when I went into the Scout shop to ask about it, they seemed a little weary but gave me the answer I expected anyways.

Even with the confusion and hoops you have to jump through, I think it is still an interesting contest and it basically comes down to the thrill of the hunt and the adrenaline rush of trying to be FTF. I'll be out there looking if one pops up in my area.

I agree. I think the game has way more potential than what it is right now. I tried yesterday and today just to see how fast you need to be and how hard it would be.
Yesterday was a complete screw up, because I WAS there first, but the sticker had been removed, and a winner was awarded to a much later winner, after they put the sticker back up.
Today, I thought I would be to late, but we will see...

The game has more potential, especially if they will actually hide the sticker just a LITTLE! Plastering it on a window of a store is not that much of a challenge.

Unless the coords are in my immediate area, I think today was my last attempt.

With an alias upon an alias, my name is listed on the winners page? However, I have yet to hear from them. So, I can only go by what I read.

I think it will be fun to see how many of the winners will be geocachers. Cachers vs. Civilians! It may be hard to keep score, but hopefully the cachers will step up and claim victory online.

Gilby rocks. I think the Monte Dolak Print should be made into a travel bug. Smile
