Geocache of the month for September 2016 goes to birdman2099 and GeoKidAdventure for their 9 part Minecraft series. As usual, when a whole series wins, the award goes to the last cache in the series, this time aptly named MINECRAFT SERIES - FINAL.
Placed in early 2015, the series was nominated by vk2df and enthusiastically seconded by JordsAU. Most of the adventure takes place around the Narrabeen Lakes in Sydney's northern beaches. Here the winning COs have placed a mixture of 8 Traditional and Multi caches that provide the information needed to work out the location of the 4½/1½ mystery series final.
Finders have awarded a good number of favourite points to every cache in the series with the final scoring and impressive 84%.
vk2df writes: "As a family we all really enjoyed collecting the clues from all of the very well constructed & themed Tradi & Multi caches around the lake (an excellent walk or bike ride in itself), and then solving & finding the final Mystery cache. Truly the best cache series we have done to date, and a must for any Minecraft fan. ALL of the caches in the series have plenty of Favourite points awarded to each of them, so the series is obviously popular with many other cachers besides ourselves."
Most finders couldn't contain their enjoyment. Typical comments logged include "Another classic wonderful series - right up there with the best", "Wow! What an amazing adventure we've had. We loved everything about it" and "I am so sad , the end has finally come . This geocache has been the most awesome amazing best geocache ever".
Congratulations birdman2099 and GeoKidAdventure!
