I came up with a little contest for February, just for fun (and a couple of prizes).  Check it out and challenge yourself to think outside the cache box.

Diversified Cacher Contest

By NativTxn

This contest period will run through February 29, 2012.  Complete as many of the tasks listed below as possible.  All finds, hides, etc. must take place on or after February 1, 2012 unless otherwise stated.  You will have until March 7, 2012 to return your entry form to me.  The person with the most tasks completed will win a $20 gift certificate to GxProxy and one of my unactivated GxNomads that can be activated and tracked at geocaching.com.  In case there are multiple entries with the same number of tasks completed, a drawing will be held amongst those entries. I may have some donations from other entities to add as well. We'll see how this progresses. Good luck and most importantly - HAVE FUN!

One entry form per cacher. A cache may only be used on one task.
