The 8th Annual Hide And Go Cache Event
Well you definitely know that spring is on it's merry way when the HAG comes to town.
The HAG or Hide And Go cache event is a month long event consisting of three stages. The first stage is the HIDE. This is when we the cachers are encouraged to think really hard and come up with a cache and location to hide it in for everyone to enjoy. The second stage is the FIND. This is when all those fun HAG caches get launched and we head out to go find them. And lastly the third stage is the PARTY!!! This is when we all get together at 6 Mile Pub (yes this is the only event that kids can't come to) and chitty chat about all those great new caches, and to see who won the highly coveted HAG awards.
The awards range from "Most FTFs" to "Scariest Cache" to "Best in the Field".
Last year I (ShadowcasterCDN) won for best cache log. The entry for this is here in the 2011 section of this blog and can be read HERE.
This year we placed a puzzle cache out there, and won the "Best Puzzle" trophy.
An award we happily and humbly accept!!
Thank you again to Cache Crop and Amandazon for all your hard work planning and running the HAG! And to all that placed caches a big THANK YOU, and those that attended the event it was a pleasure to see you all again!!
