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 October of 2012. You can submit COTM nominations by using one of the following three methods…1) Send ArcherDragoon or I (msteffel) a Private Message through MNGCA.org or 2) SendArcherDragoon or I (msteffel) 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 October 2012 Cache of the Month will remain open until the end of the current month (September 30th).

We want to nominate Hidden Gem by twin_57103 and fl2mn98. This is a very creative and well-crafted Wherigo in Roseville. The story is fun, the setting is pleasant, the "trials" are educational, and the cartridge ran perfectly on both our Android phone and Colorado. They even included a helpful guide-squirrel to make sure you pick the correct path!

I would like to nominate Seldon's Gauntlet 2012 - Sticks and Stones
GC3H2FD. It is a seven stage multi-cache with a puzzle to solve at each cache. It is very, very creative; a LOT of work went into this one. The cache is located in a gorgeous, rustic park called Cannon River Wilderness Area north of Faribault. The person who decides to find this multi will have one great adventure-filled day--I promise! Plus there are also others in this park to make it a destination day. Bring a picnic lunch!

I'll second the nomination for the Gauntlet. There are over 35 caches in the park, including two other CoTM caches, so it could be a destination. Now is the perfect time of year to be in the woods.
