Minotaur Mazes is working with Groundspeak to create a new traveling maze exhibit called GPS Adventures Canada GC2HB80, which is launching at the Best of the Bad Mega Event in Alberta, Canada in July 2011. They'd like your input on what you consider to be the most notable places and caches in all of Canada.
16 Canadian Treasures
These will essentially take the form of postcards locked in 16 lockers at the exit of the exhibit. When you successfully find the 4 geocaches hidden in the maze and complete your Treasure Card, it will give you a 4-digit code which unlocks one of the lockers, and you will discover your Canadian Treasure. What do you think are Canada's most notable treasures? These should be fairly well-known places - not geocaches, but what you consider to be Canada's best cities, remarkable sites, natural or man-made attractions - the wonders and heartbeat of Canada.
13 'Best of the Province or Territory' Caches
Aside from the main goal of finding 4 caches in the Maze and completing your Treasure Card, this area will have you spin a wheel featuring each Canadian province and territory, and searching the maze for a hidden graphic panel about some extraordinary cache in that province or territory. Here we want to feature caches that are simply cool. Cool places to be and cool caches to find. Places and caches that your friends would be impressed and envious that you've found, whether they're in gorgeous, secluded or alluring places, or whether they are ingenious or devious to the point of notoriety (or infamy). Please keep in mind these are full size graphic panels, so we will need to be able to find some stunning photograph to accompany each (suggestions that include a source for such a photo get special attention and appreciation). Also, please provide the cache name and its GC code, and add a few words of why this is the one cache from each province that should be featured.
So, TWO QUESTIONS for you:
1. What do you think are Canada's most notable treasures?
2. What do you think is the most notable cache in each of the 10 Canadian provinces and 3 territories ?
Feel free to post your suggestions in this discussion on the Groundspeak Canada forum, or email your suggestions directly to Kelly Fernandi at Minotaur, with the letters "CTC" (Canadian Treasures and Caches) in the subject line. If you have questions or comments you'd like Kelly to respond to, please put "RSVP" in the subject line as well.
All suggestions should be made by April 10, 2011. Thanks a bunch for your interest! And feel free to pass this on to fellow cachers who might have some ideas.
