After making it kind of a goal to find defunct Lakers, I am now curious as to who out there has them, and which ones they have.

I know at least one person who is looking to trade for one. He is looking for any of the St. Paul area lakes, Laker pieces. Anyone holding one?

I currently have FIVE in my possesion (Saganaga, Rice, Moose, Geneva and St. Croix), and am willing to trade any of them for other Lakers if the ones I have are meaningful to someone else. I would love to find or trade for the extremely missing "Minnetonka" or "Battle".

So, who has Lakers? Which ones do you have? And, are you willing to trade them?

Would anyone have a list of the last caches the lakers were in before the game ended? There used to be a list of where they were at. Can't find it now. I was just curious if there were anymore of them listed in caches close to me.

I also just checked one of my caches this morning and found "Cedar" in one of them. What's it worth to someone? It is now in my possesion. I would possibly be willing to trade for one from a lake close to me. I know "Lac Qui Parle" dissapeared quite a while ago. I live in the west central part of the state.

The Lakers pages were removed from the website when the game ended. Gilby requested a list of caches and so I queried the database and created a map that contained the last cache each Laker was dropped into.

Here is the map: http://www.geopierce.net/maps/lakers.php?lat=46.664&lon=-93.251&z=11

There are only 33 and a few are archived. The map does not tell which Laker is supposed to be in the cache displayed. That would have been too much work. A quick search for the word "laker" on the cache page should tell you if it the Laker is still there or not. The map will not be updated.

I have 'Elephant'. I'd be interested in trading for Rainy, or Cedar.

I thought the lakers game was stopped because there were no more lakers. Shocked

It was stopped because there were too many missing and it was time to make a new game to spread the word about the MnGCA.

I would say that's pretty accurate. It's not that there were none, just that a large number are now missing.

I hear the new game will be a hoot..... Very Happy

If I ever get off my wazooo and get it done.

To free up some time:
I have to put the county challenge on the back burner, stop selling coins, and that honey-do list just has to go. Laughing
