2008 Cache/Cacher Awards Voting & NoVAGO Spring Event

Voting for those fantastic caches vying for your recognition is going very slowly, I realize that many of you would like to complete more of the caches on the list before casting your votes.  Please do so, but by the same token…don’t wait too long.  Although a cut-off date for voting has not yet been determined…I expect it may be within the next month.


2008 Geocache Award Voting

Below are the caches and cachers up for awards. You have until midnight on May 10th to vote. If you have time, visit the caches below, and then vote by picking one cache from each category, and email your vote to: dorkyrooster[at]hotmail[dot]com

There will be an update on this thread on the end of the voting period

There will be extra incentive to visit these caches, in the form of another cache GC1P34J (published shortly) that you can log after you visit 40% of the caches and/or series nominees.

I’ve created a bookmark list with all the nominated caches.

    Hope people don’t get “evented out” and not come to the flash mob wedding GC1MPYN.

    I don’t think you have to worry about NoVAGO’ers getting “evented out”. As a rule most members don’t participate in the forums, or even read the forums, they don’t vote, they don’t volunteer their services, BUT there are a lot of Social Animals in the ranks, and I’m sure both the Spring Event and your Flash Mob Wedding will be well attended.
