Geocache Challenge

This is a single person event. This activity requires the use of the www.geoaching.com website and GPS, or the Geocaching App for your mobile device. This activity will take place between the dates of Monday, October 4, 2021 and Monday, November 15, 2021. This activity will require access to a camera to prove discovery of caches.

 

ELIGIBILITY

Participants must be current University of Regina student, enrolled in a minimum of 1 credit hour.

Sign up is Free. To register submit your cache on the document link below.

Caches entered cannot be used by the same person in two different challenges, the caches must be original to that challenge.

 

EXPLANATION

  • Geocaching is an outdoor activity that is similar to “treasure hunting”. This activity requires participants to use a GPS-enabled device to navigate to a set of coordinates found on geocaching.com or by using the Geocaching app (free download from the App Store, or Google Play store). At the coordinates, an individual will find a “cache” (treasure) hidden in various sized containers.
  • There are various types of caches, such as multi-stage, virtual, EarthCache, and puzzle caches.
  • All caches have varying degrees of difficulty for two aspects: Terrain (getting to the cache) and Difficulty (how well hidden the cache is at the coordinates)
  • Some caches have small prizes inside depending on the size. If someone takes a prize, they must swap in a prize, 1-for-1, of equal or greater value.

 

OBJECTIVE

  • Participants must find as many caches as they can, to be eligible for a champion t-shirt
  • Entries will also be drawn for prizes throughout the challenge
  • The first 50 U of R Students will receive a Neck Gaiter (neck warmer)

 

RULES

  • Each participant must find and document their own cache.
  • To document the find, participants must take a picture of the cache and submit documentation of the finding using this google form: U of R Geocache Challenge! Report Form
