We're soliciting nominations for the 1st annual "Best of Los Angeles" geocaches (2003).
The purpose of the BoLA program is to recognize the geocachers who brought us some really great caches over the past year.
Think of it like the Oscars for Los Angeles area geocaching.
Nominations are open to any geocaches that meet the guidelines below.

Here are the guidelines:
Caches must have been placed within the calendar year (Jan. 1, 2003 to Dec. 31, 2003).
Caches must be located within 60 miles of downtown Los Angeles (N 34.05222, W 118.24278).
Caches must be active at the time of the nomination.
You must have logged a visit to a cache in order to nominate it.
Nominate as many caches as you like, including ones that have already been nominated.
Caches must be nominated by at least two geocachers to be eligible for the final "Best of" ballot.
No self-nominations (cachers may not nominate caches they placed).
If a cache is nominated in more than 2 categories, the cache will be eligible only in the 2 categories for which it receives the most nominations.
Nominations are open until the end of the year. Final voting will happen in January.
All cachers who submit at least one nomination will be eligible to vote among the final nominees.
All participation is optional.
Any competition must be kept friendly and positive.

To nominate your own favorites, simply review your logs (http://www.geocachin...t.asp?alllogs=y) and provide with the following information for each cache you'd like to nominate:
Cache name and/or waypoint
Category or categories for which you'd like to nominate the cache
Please check the date placed to make sure it meets the guidelines above.

You can submit nominations via email at hitsman@yahoo.com or through this form: http://www.doghike.org/bola/

It's too late for nominations, but I would vote a new category of the "DaVinci Award" for most ingenius cache for anything by Otis Pug. His caches are now all archived, but his contribution to the sport is unmatched, as are his brilliant and inspired caches. Let's start a drive to draft him back into the hiding business!
