Diversified Cacher Contest Results

Thanks to all of those cachers who stepped out in many new directions during February.  I'm quite sure that most of these would have been found and/or placed regardless of this contest, but maybe some were a direct result of it.  I only had 10 forms that were turned in.  I know of a few others that said they were working on it earlier in the month, but I did not receive their entries. I'm disappointed that I didn't receive more, especially from the more local folks, but I'm going with what I've got.  Congrats to the winners.  Prize packages will be going out next week.

Many thanks to those who donated items for prizes:
