30th November 2022 – Final Positions
During November there has been just one major change in positions and it is the most important one. Joanna’s geocoin suddenly added 11,000 miles and has moved from 3rd place to winning the race! This was almost entirely due to it being taken first to Paris and then to Oregon and being returned to Paris with just a few days left of the month. I also had to deduct 1,500 miles as one cacher forgot they dropped it in an event and continued to visit with it. It was eventually grabbed from them and re-logged into the event.
So an amazing last month spurt and congratulations to Joanna for winning the race and pushing Anne and Cathy down into second and third places. All 3 will win a free Dartmoor Geocoin which I am still hoping will be a 2023 one!
Unfortunately the race this year has been marred by those not activating and releasing their coins for others to find. This has been by far the worst year for this in the 9 years I have run the race. It brings into question whether or not there will be future races, but it would be such a shame to end it all just one year short of our 10th year.
As I mentioned above I am still hoping to produce a 2023 Dartmoor Geocoin and I will be announcing some details fairly soon.Final Positions as at 30th November, 2022.
