NoVAGO's 2011 Cache Award Nominations

Postby Serrabou » Fri Feb 17, 2012 9:40 am

:smt041 NoVAGO's 2011 Geocache Awards :smt041

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:
2011awards@novago.org

Cache Eligibility:

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.

The Categories:

  • Best Theme/Series
  • Best Kids' Cache
  • Best Location
  • Best Hike
  • Best History-Related Cache
  • Best Multi-Stage
  • Best Mystery/Puzzle
  • Most Creative Cache
  • Most Challenging-to-Find Cache
  • Best Picture in 2011 posted to a cache log
  • Best Log in 2011 on a Cache
  • Cache of Year
  • Rookie of the Year (any cacher that found their first cache after August 1st, 2010)
  • Cacher of the Year

You'll get a confirmation email when you submit nominations.

Thanks! We look forward to receiving your nominations.

Might not be a bad idea to post this announcement on the front page. 2011 was a good year for caches! :-D

Finally sent mine in. Thankfully I only found a handful of caches in NoVA last year otherwise I would really have my work cut out for me.

I hope others are nominating too!

Got a question about finding out how to list the caches you have found that were placed in 2011. The easiest way to do it is to go to the list of all your finds and then click on the "Placed" column header to sort by date placed. It will start with hides in 2012 so you will have to skip down a bit.

If you are a Premium member you can create a Pocket Query.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask!

Nominations sent. Lots of kids caches nominees. Not many "Most Challanging to Find" nominees. I think I DNF'd all those. Serrabou, your directions didn't include steps to pull DNFs. ;-)
