+aaboe Posted July 14, 2004 Share Posted July 14, 2004 Recently, i checked out the program of the olympic games in Athens 2004. I was really disappointed when i found out that Geocaching was not there. Something had to be done and the idea of Geolympics came up. The basic idea is that over a time period (in this case during the olympics) the name of a random, and already existing, cache is released each day. First finder after each cache is released gets a gold medal, second silver – and yes you guessed it: third place is a bronce. I have set up a Geolympics website for a danish round of this game. Right now it is showing spanish caches as a test, but these will be changed with the real danish caches when the game starts. On the website a more detailed description of the rules is available. You can see the Geolympics website here: http://www.aaboes.dk/geolympics Please feel free to comment on the idea or copy it if you like it. Note: This type of game does (unfortunately) not qualify as a cache listing on geocaching.com. It is some kind of “locationless” cache (on which there currently is a moratorium) or an event-cache (which requires a physical gathering of people). Quote Link to comment
