2011 Metro New York Geocaching awards!

Postby addisonbr » Sat Sep 08, 2012 11:01 pm

Voting has concluded and the results are in!

I'd like to stress that there are no losers here - this sort of awards balloting is an inexact exercise (not everyone found every cache on the list, not everyone who did find these caches voted, and so on). But what follows is a fantastic list of caches that gave our members memorable thrills (plus several series that add dozens more to the list).

Thanks to *everyone* who placed a listing last year (and to everyone who submitted nominations and voted). Here's to some of the best times we had in 2011 (highest totals in bold):

A lot of great caches on this list, but having been lucky enough to hunt Sonoluminous' Harry Potter caches I can recommend them with no reservations. They are a real gift to the community.

Wow! Thank you so much for nominating the Harry Potter Series and Cache #1 of the series: "The Memory" for cache of the year.

I am honored to be listed and to be included in such esteemed company. There are so many amazing caches on the list above!

Thanks to everyone for voting and to those of you who have not visited ... Harry, Ron, Hermione and friends (well some aren't quite so friendly!) look forward to seeing you up in Greenwich at some point soon. ;)
