MadCacher’s 2011 Geocaching Contest!


With the new year comes a new contest giving you a chance to win a bunch of cool Geocaching stuff! :)

I’ll make it short and sweet. It’s very simple.

How to Enter:

It will take you about 20 seconds:
1. “Like” the MadCacher on Facebook
2. Follow the MadCacher on Twitter (If you don’t have an account it’s easy and free to join and there are LOTS of Geocachers on Twitter)
3. Copy and Paste the following on Twitter (copy everything between the quotation marks) ” @MadCacher is giving away #Geocaching stuff! The details are at: ” You can post something similar on Facebook too if you like, but that’s not required.

(If you already follow the MadCacher on Facebook and Twitter you only have to complete #3 to be entered)

Two weeks from today, on January 20th at 12 noon EST I will pick a random winner using a randomizer program that basically mixes up as many words as you put in it and picks one randomly. I’ll manually check to see if that user has completed all three steps. If that use has not I will do it again until I find a user who has completed all three steps. If the Twitter account and/or Facebook account seem spammy that user will not win. All profiles must be legitimate.

The winner will be announced here on the blog on the 20th of Jan.


What does the Winner Get?
A box full of Geocaching goodies including Geocoins, Travel Bugs, Nanno containers at least one Gear Pod, log sheets and possibly a few more goodies 😉

    BTW, as having held some contests myself… I just wanted to let you know for the future it is a LOT easier to keep track if you create a unique hashtag to search like “#MCblogcontest” or something 😉
