http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=128c432a-6748-4ec4-890c-5bf9a62425f4

We're looking for teams of two to compete in a MOGA-style event being held at Lebanon Hills. There will be ~30 stations to do and you *can* split up to find them -- the only requirement is that you must check-in at the end together.

We will be having a potluck lunch and time for chat/caching.

There are plenty of caches to do in Lebanon Hills in addition to the course.

I've found competitive caching to really not be my style. But I suppose I could participate as more of a "well, at least I did better than k-corn" style role.

The option is there to do it as a competition-style but if you're just interested in attending and running around with a partner (geomatrix?!) and finding all the caches together for personal betterment, go for it.

depends on if he's in town. He usually winters in california.

But, I'll most likely go all the same, as with all events I try to make an effort to go when I can. While I could be competitive, I just learned from past experience that it's not the way I like to cache.

Don't look at this as a competition. Look at it as just another event. We are not awarding prizes or even plan on posting times unless the team wants their time posted.

You can also do the course as an individual, just to do the course. With 20 stages we don't expect anyone or two man team to actually get them all. This is more about time management and terrain analysis. You get to see where all of the stages are located and you get 3 hours to find as many as you can. There are different strategies for accomplishing this.

We're really doing it just so we can do something different. Just like the Poker Run, just changes the parameters of the event up some.

So far only three cachers have even said they would potentially make the event:

Camo (maybe)
Jambro
Nature Nerd

Come on folks it's going to take me and SB several days of effort to get everything in place. We like to see our effort go for something.

I believe I said I'd attend (I'm just not very competitive).

I'm still trying to arrange babysitting, but if that gets taken care of, my wife and I will attend as a team. I didn't want to post a "will attend" until I had that taken care of.

I have the event in my schedule, I just don't know for sure yet if I am going to be able to make it, depends on school.

Let me know when you do OTHAFA as an individual so that I can archive it Wink
