Amazing Geoquest, Knoxville, Tn, April 1-2, 2006


Recommended Posts

We are planning an East TN version of the Amazing Race to be held April 1-2, 2006. The Event will be more of a "Quest" than it will be a race, due to some concerns some people have had over the safety of an event involving geocachers racing in cars.


This will be a 2 day event with a mandetory reststop at the end of the first day. There will be about 80 caches on the total route. Camping will be available at the rest stop or motels are nearby for those who don't camp.


The individual caches will be asigned points. Whoever has the most points at the end of the event will win some cool prizes. There will be a time limit but there will be no need to "race" to find the caches. Everyone should be able to find them in the allotted time. There will be some challenges that a team will have to perform in order to move on, and a few more surprises thrown in to spice things up.


There will be divisions for beginners, intermediate , and experienced cachers to make the playing field a little more even. Teams will be limited to 4 people per team/vehicle. No radar detectors will be allowed.


The start of the event will be in Knoxville and wind through the hills of E. TN.


We are still working on all the other specifics. Check back later for updates.


Feel free to post this on any of your local event forums.
