I just saw this in the star tribune. I'm not sure if this has been posted before.

I think this is a cool idea!
My only question is.. Why weren't we approached to be a part of this program..?? Will coordinates be posted on geocaching.com? What if the cache is placed less than .10 of another cache?
Ok make it three questions...

I don't think they will be listed on gc.com or other sites. Generally when places run contests like this they don't necessarily follow "our" rules. But honestly I'm not sure if they will or won't be listed though.

I think that sometimes places like this don't realize that while a lot of cachers may participate, to a lot of us it's not a real cache unless it's listed on whatever listing site we prefer. I enjoy finding caches, but if you emailed me coordinates to a local cache that wasn't listed then I probably wouldn't find it until I got real bored, or until you listed it on my preferred listing site.

I guess I get to claim the first DNF. Found the ribbon--nothing attached.

So where exactly are the coords listed on the site? I followed the link to the main page but nothing was there.

I found it Sunday and got a call Monday afternoon from Team MnMizzou and the laminated sheet is already missing. It was pretty obvious so almost anyone could have taken it. It was also only tied on so it could be possible the wind took I off as well.

I dont think it blew off. There were some slashes in the ribbon that would occur if the ribbon had been forced through a hole in a laminated card, but they did not go all the way through the ribbon, so I don't think the wind blew it off.
