One new traditional cache and a couple of new events to report since our last post:
GCAA10B Buddy Boy 2 by Teamtart Traditional D2/T1.5
GCAB60H CITO, A487 South, Quick Pick by 9 Usual Suspects D1/T4
When: Sunday 23rd July 2023
Where: Lab-by, Caernarfon By-pass
We stopped here looking for a hide for a new cache after doing a maintenance run on some 9US caches. We were horrified by the state of this lay-by. It is not some where we would want to encourage geocachers to stop and search for a well hidden cache. We had already removed 2 bags and a carrier bag full of bottles, cans and general litter from the lay-by on the other carriageway. Why can’t people be responsible and take their litter home with them? Please note there is a very steep bank involved in this litter pick. Parking is limited at the published coordinates, if anyone could car share it would be appreciated.
Note: This not a souvenir event
GCAB6AZ 9 Usual Suspects – Nosh & Natter 59 by 9 usual Suspect D1/T1
For this months N&N we will be visiting The Cube a kebab/burger van at Brynrefail, a quick catch up before we head off for Piratemania. Our last event here was way back in April 2017. Let’s hope for a dry, warm, sunny evening!
When: Wednesday 26th July 2023
Where: The Cube, Brynrefail, Llanberis
Time: 6.00pm to 7.30pm or when the last person leaves
Please note the earlier start time.
Wheel of Challenge, Streak Star!
Bryan, lostnwet, contacted us about a problem with the latest challenge, Streak Star:
‘Not too sure ad lab caches count towards your streak for this next challenge???
Ian (Browni) has ad lab finds for the first 2 days but he didn’t get the souvenir [:(]
I think “Geocaching.com” may be broken though!!!
We and Kevin (Snakes77) both have ordinary finds on the first two days and we’ve both got a new souvenir [:P] Check out our profiles and you’ll see we’ve both been given “Project Ape Cache Finders” souvenirs ? (Personally I’m not complaining as I can’t afford a trip to Brazil for that one) [;-)]’.
Geocaching has tweeted:
‘The issue with the souvenirs not awarding for Wheel of Challenges: Streak Star has been resolved. We will retroactively award souvenirs to players who should have received them and hope to release this fix soon. Thank you for your patience as we continue to work on this.’
But no mention of the ‘Project Ape Cache Finders’ souvenir which still shows on some Geocachers profiles.
We have the above caches left on the display table at our Maker’s Magic event……. please contact us to claim them or they might get released into the wild!
