Below are the caches and cachers up for awards. Votes will be accepted up until midnight May 10th. Vote by picking one cache or cacher from each category, and email your votes to: 2010awards@novago.org Please include your geocaching userid.

Robert was kind enough to produce this snazzy badge that cache owners can place on their nominated caches:

Image

To put it on your cache page just copy and paste the following code:

Code: Select all
</br>
<a href="http://www.novago.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=2304" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.novago.org/images/2010nominee.gif"></a>
</br>


This badge will also link directly here to the Awards forum.

Wow, lots of great choices... several of the categories I have 2 or 3 that I want to vote for. I may need to start tossing a coin to choose between them! I actually emailed Nemo to see of the "Cacher of the Year" listing was an April Fool's joke. :D

Hopefully I have a chance to hunt some of those I haven't been to yet.

A little bird told me that voting response is low :( .......only 10 days left to get your votes in. Would be a real shame if the caches, and cachers who make this pastime so enjoyable for all of us are ignored. :shame:
