Listed below are the caches and cachers up for awards.

VOTE HERE.

Voting ends at 12 noon, Monday, April 23rd. We haven't used this site for voting before, so if you encounter any problems or have any questions please send an email to 2011awards@novago.org.

Winners will be announced at Down by the River "NoVAGO's Spring Event"

There is an extra incentive to visit these caches, in the form of a challenge cache (GC3FJDV) that requires you to find a certain number of the nominated caches. The idea is that you can go visit as many of the nominated caches as possible before you vote. So go get 'em! Here is a bookmark list of nominated caches.

Fortunately before I left NOVA, I was able to hit some of these.

Unfortunately, before I left NOVA, I wasn't able to hit a LOT of these!! Looks like another great selection!

I'm putting some on my list for the next time I'm in the area (might have to take a class in the Tysons area for a few days).

Good luck to all!

Wow, my cache has been nominated! that's pretty cool! Looks like I should've put my cache out a different year. Not sure I want to go up against the Domino principle and it's many nominations, including cache of the year :). Anyway thanks for the nomination, and good luck to zgrav and 4everyoungs I still need to try that puzzle.

It is nice to know that blackmail and bribery pays off in the end. :twisted:

I'm excited to be included as a nominee in a highly esteemed Rookie of the Year class! Now I just need to get my Super PAC working on spreading false rumors about the competition. I heard derektiffany still wears footie pajamas.
