MEGA TB Race 2013

Recommended Posts

Thought I'd start a topic to discuss the race, racers and anything vaguely related to the 2013 race.

 

Firstly - it would be good to know just how many racers are out there - seemed like a bucket load at the MEGA. So glad to have such a big race this year.

 

Secondly - I managed to grab a few racers from the TB Hotel uitspan - and sent them merrily on their way to Europe. Managed to take a few good photos too I will upload later this week on those racers.

 

Good luck all racers and may NO racers go MIA this year!

Well on the country side - coins I moved have already seen Germany, Italy and Denmark - and a few now have more than 10,000 km under the belt already. So a great start for some TBs.

As soon as I can get an appointment with JPMZA, who is flying very much under the radar at the moment, I shall get his list of all the TBs currently in the race and list them accordingly. At this point in time he is taking a well deserved break from geocaching after the pressure and much midnight oil from the MEGA.

In time, everything will be hosted in the GoSA website. Please be patient... :unsure:

Nice to see one of mine, Polly the Parrot, reached Durban, but now it is stuck at Pop Inn, rescue it someone.... please, it has a cache it is needing to reach, IN BRAZIL :)

The other one is in the hands of Henzz and is moving around nicely and gathering some nice pics along the way. Thanks Henzz, your efforts are much appreciated.

Good news.....

We are making progress, slowly but surely. Damhuisclan, Fier and myself brainstormed earlier this evening as how we are going to automate the scoring of the Mega TB Race 2013. Shortly you will be able to get up to the minute score for each trackable in the race.

Until then I am posting a list of the 103 registered TBs, or coins currently in the race.

If there are any discrepancies, omissions or any other queries, please let us know so that we can get an accurate list of all the contestants. Please check that your entry is actually in the right race. For some entries, it was difficult to determine from the listing into which race (Distance / Points) the entrant should be placed.

The list is on the geocachingsa.com website.

Thank you for your patience in getting the list published.

Enjoy the race.

The Team.

Very interesting.....

 

The reason it is not seeing the distance as the program I wrote looks for "Dropped Off" and "Visited" logs.

 

In the case of Polly there is no "Dropped Off" off log into the Voortrekker TB hotel.

 

I have tried to look what happens if I include "Retrieve It from a Cache" logs but it skews the number of caches visited, and screws around with the "Single person distance" points.

 

My suggestion is to perhaps grab it from the current holder, drop it in the TB hotel on the the 5th or 6th October and then let the other person grab it again (and perhaps delete the grab logs).

 

So I'll be posting the race results as they currently are.

I'll have to look look into it.

 

I can see it was moved by different people, but the program only lists 6,400 km travelled.

Might have a bug somewhere.

Ok. I have looked into it. There is no bug.

 

In my database I have an entry for the 2012/12/12 where Manofsteel73 dipped (Visited) the TB in GC41KR, and thus the second leg to GC40QAM (America) does not count.

I see from the current logs on the web site that the dipped entry has now been deleted / removed.

 

So the score should come right by the next run.
