In this post is a table containing a list of caches in KZN by D/T rating - as at 11 January 2012.
I have also inserted a list for the "near to Durban" caches (Ethekwini, iLembe and Umgungundlovu).
Looking at the data is is very obvious that we are missing some D/T combinations, so achieving a full grid is impossible without some serious travel.
Now it would be really great if KZN cachers were able to log the entire grid right here in KZN. And it would also attract other cachers to our province to tackle these missing D/T ratings.
Where there is only one of a particular D/T rating it means that the owner of that cache cannot complete the D/T grid as he can't go and find his own cache, so we need more of that D/T rating. In fact at least three of each rating is ideal in case one gets archived.
So, here is my challenge for 2012!
I will give a prize of One Year's Premium Membership (or an extension to your existing Premium Membership) to the best new cache placed that fills or extends the red cells, so that by the end of the year we can ideally have a full D/T grid available in KZN.
2012 D/T Challenge
- The cache must be a new listing, and must be placed in Ethekwini, iLembe or Umgungundlovu (Durban Functional Region, PMB Functional Region, Near North Coast (up to the Tugela)).
- The cache can be any physical type, i.e Events and Earthcaches are excluded.
- The words "2012 D/T Challenge" must appear in the Cache Short Description.
- The cache must have one of the ratings highlighted in pink in the table, preferably a rating where zero or only one exists.
- Cachers living anywhere in South Africa are eligible. However a verifiable local maintainer must be appointed if the cacher lives outside of the districts mentioned above.
- I may use the opinions of other cachers (at my discretion) in determining a winner.
- The judge's (that's me) decision is final and may not be appealed, discussed, condemned or disparaged . A decision will be made by 15 January 2013 and the award made at an event after that date.
- These rules are not exhaustive as crystal balls are in short supply.
