Each year we hold voting to highlight some of the best caches that were placed in the NoVAGO area. This is a chance for you to recognize the efforts of your fellow NoVAGO cachers who have placed hides that you have enjoyed (or hope to enjoy one day!)
From now and until the 18th of March, we will be taking nominations for the categories below. The list of nominated caches and cachers will be posted for everyone to check out and then vote on, starting on or about March 21st, and will continue for a month when voting will be locked. A special cache has been placed that requires you to visit a good percentage of the nominated caches in order to log the cache. Link to the challenge cache.
The winners will be announced at the Spring NOVAGO event.
Please email your suggestions to the following email address:
1. Cache must have been placed between January 1, 2011 and December 31, 2011, and still active as of February 10th, 2012.
2. As many nominations per category will be accepted, however try to keep it to 5 or under per category. (Many emails is fine, and you don't need to have a nomination for each category with each email)
3. Caches must be within Northern Virginia (NoVa will be defined as Arlington, Fairfax, Alexandria, Prince William, Fauquier, Loudoun)
4. We will compile the nomination submissions and you will be voting on the top nominees in each category. So the more nominations we get, the easier it will be to discern the best of the best.
