Sounds like fun. I will hide one down here in SE Minnesota for the traveling cachers. Since most of the locals have hibernated.

Get ready to put your creativity into action. I'll be posting the graphic to use on your pages soon! Get your page set up using the cache name:

MN League of Professional Cachers Series - "Your Geocaching Name Here"

Then use any description you like and the graphic can be placed anywhere on your page. I will be posting it in this thread for you to grab. THEN you can publish your cache at anytime over the next couple months. Your choice.

I will have a cache listing that will list all the members of the series once they're published so you can either post your cache here in this thread once it's published or send the listing link to me at epminnesota@gmail.com so I can add it to the page that will list all the caches in the series. Once that cache is published I'll post it here and if you like you can put the link to it on your cache page so others can see the list of all the other caches in the series as well.

Feel free to post any questions you have!

Small problem. Groundspeak limits the characters in the Cache name line which makes it impossible to include my name without abbreviating the title.

I laughed at first, but then realized I will have the same problem

Can these be a multi or puzzle cache or do they need to be traditional?

Yes, they can be puzzles. Just remember to make the find interesting, unusual, amusing, startling, etc. If they are multicaches all stages need to be LPC's.

Do all stages need to be interesting, unusual, amusing, startling or just the final?

I'd say just the final but it would be MUCH more fun if there was something different/unusual about each one that might at least give people a chuckle!

I just submitted my cache for this series. Will edit this post once it has been published.

MN.Fruitcake must not be working today. Already published. Cache is located in Faribault.

Okay, everyone! Here's the image to put on your cache page! You can grab it from here or use the link to embed it into your page.

Two last things, then you can publish those caches!

One...It would be helpful if the first line in your short description says "This cache is a member of the Minnesota League of Professional Cachers Series" especially if your are unable to list the full name in the cache name.

Second...to help string out the caches being published so they aren't all submitted at once...perhaps you could submit your cache to be published on the day of the month that you were born. I was born on the 6th so perhaps on the 6th I might publish mine! Might help MN Fruitcake out. Not that he needs it, of course! Very Happy

Any questions? Let me know!

Are you putting together a bookmark for the series? Once they are all up that would be nice. I will go live with mine this weekend
