It's that time of year again--time to nominate your favorite Austin area caches of 2011! 

It's simple! 
Scan your list of caches placed in 2011 and conjure up those priceless memories of :

finding truly unique cache containers,
spotting that micro in the city despite your GPS signal jumping all over the place,
sweating buckets on a hike to grab that smiley, 
torturing your brain trying to solve that difficult puzzle,
discovering a beautiful area you had never seen before,
laughing so hard after making the find that the muggles start to stare,
seeing the delight on your kids' faces,
chatting it up with your buddies at a fun event,

and reward the cachers who helped create those memories!

Check out the past awards, the rules for the 2011 awards, and nominate your own:  https://www.geocachingaustin.com/geocache-awards

Feel free to nominate more than one cache in each category, however nominating a cache for each category is not required.
Nominations will be open from now until February 29th.  You can nominate caches whenever you want throughout the voting period.

Rules:
Caches, events, and logs/photos must have been placed, occurred or posted in 2011.  Nominees must fall within 50 miles of the State Capitol (use GC142B as a reference).  Except for events, all nominated caches must be active and remain so throughout the nominating and voting periods.  (Logs and photos do not have that restriction). 
*Premium members are strongly encouraged to 'Favorite' the caches they nominate*

So go vote!  You know you want to ;)
