I called and asked about the price and what is included for the tournament. The coordinator said that the price will include shirts, prizes, food and the left over money from the event will be used towards the youth Scholarship program to help under privileged children get into programs at the Y.

Sorry about that. It's in Wausau. I was able to find out that it will be a mixture of terrain and difficulties. There wont be anything extreme like water or dangerous places. At the start of the event each team will be given an envelope with coordinates to a select cache as to not all go to the same one and in that cache there will be a list of caches on a pc of paper for the event. Not sure exactly how everything is going to be run, but it sounds like fun.

Never heard of a pc made of paper, but I'll bring my USB cord so that I can download coordinates Laughing

Funny they have to have a disclaimer like this on the registration form. I don't see any opinion statements to disclaim.

Are there prizes too? I think it sounds like a blast, but I'll be at a black belt practice session.
