Just a quick notice that the last of the data has arrived and the March results are completely updated as of….right now.   The top ten hasn’t changed at all, but some of the lower ranks have due to the updated scores.

I also thought I would announce a new prize to the prize pool.  Some people have donated money for use in purchasing items and some of that has been used to get a new geocoin.  A cool geocoin in my opinion.  The coin is a 2009 Nebraskache coin.  Here’s a view of what it looks like:

3 of 12

The coin is in the shape of the state of Nebraska, with the common geocaching colors on one side and a relief image of Carhenge on the other side. Carhenge is a popular tourist monument in Western Nebraska that features a replica of Stonehenge made out of cars. It has since been expanded to include some car related artwork off to the side of Carhenge.

A thanks to Cache Gator, whose money payed for the coin. One minor difference is that the coin is a silver color instead of the gold color in the photo.

I’m already reading some interesting logs and seeing interesting photos for the racers. Keep cheering them on. I’ll also recommend that all owners keep up with what’s going on with your racers and don’t be afraid to contact a cacher who seems to be holding on to the TB too long and politely ask for a status update. A number of racers that went MIA last year could have been avoided by regular check-ups of the items. Also check in with caches they seem stuck in. A quick note asking for verification that the item is still there can often produce a Yay or Nay, and even encourage cachers to pick it up to help move it along to another location. Every move can help, even if it is a minor move. And if cachers are willing to do simple things like take photos, exchange for the TB, etc., points can easily be earned.
