Accepting Nominations...

Although we will accept nominations at any time, this thread is to remind everyone that we are accepting Nominations for Cache of the Month for February of 2012. You can submit COTM nominations by using one of the following three methods…1) Send msteffel or I (ArcherDragoon) a Private Message through MNGCA.org or 2) Send msteffel or I (ArcherDragoon) an Email through Geocaching.com or 3) Post a nomination in this thread. Nominations need to be written in a way that gives the reader a spoiler-free description of what make the cache special. You must include the Cache Owner, Cache Name and Waypoint with your nomination. Your nomination must also include a brief write-up for the cache (at least a sentence...but I would prefer something a bit longer...I honestly think we are capable of writing a couple sentences or a nice paragraph).

For full details check here, but the short version - if you find an outstanding cache, reply to this post!!! Nominations for February 2012 Cache of the Month will remain open until the end of the month (January 31st).

On behalf of the Motley Crew, I nominate Gauntlet 2011 - Child's Play (GC2T2RB) by seldon

Many cachers say they are not in it for the numbers. Here's a chance to prove it. One smiley, a lot of effort; you will remember this one. So, what say you - local cachers, those from outlying areas, Twin Cities, wherever - it's out there, waiting....


You know what it is. If you don't, read the logs. Go to this cache now, today, soon. I doubt there will ever be a better time to do this one. Start a rumor that you're going, and a dozen will show up.

Well KB's nomination needs a worthy opponent so I'd like to nominate:

GC2HT5W-The Guardian Final - A Night Cache

We found this cache as well as a few other well done night caches in Woodbury New Year's Eve. This cache is actually part of a Guardian series where you need to find three traditional caches first and "make" a key to get the final coords to find the start of this night cache. The method of making the key, we have never seen done before and thought it very creative. The final itself is a traditional night cache, and is very well done with tacs that are easy to see and close together, so they guide you through a great night walk in a nice park. The CO even thoughtfully provided tacs AFTER the cache, to help you find your way out. A very enjoyable series of caches that the whole family will enjoy.

If someone would provide me with the code to make a clickable link, I'll edit this to add.

Eh, what the heck. I'll nominate Tons of Sex (GC397WG) by 3fortner. It's just a well designed urban cache, and one of the best first caches hidden that I've seen. I went looking for it incredibly unsure what to expect based on the name, but it turns out it's totally family friendly and the name is just a pun based on the history of the area. I fear the name might be scaring some people off, so I thought a COTM nomination might act as a counterbalance. I hope to see many more from 3fortner!

I agree, it is a very well done cache. I was a little reluctant to look for it because of the name, but Sparky is right, it is family friendly.

I've not had the pleasure of finding this cache...yet...but I hope that day is fast approaching. I've done several of Diehard's other caches in the area and they are all quite fun.
