Should the WGA continue to support the Lonely Cache Game?

Yes! I feel that it only adds to the fun that WGA offers! Plus, it helps aid in helping out the reviewers on if the cache is actually there or not.

Yes,

It is a great program that help keeps older caches checked on. This is the first year that we have joined in on the game and so far are having fun with it.

Until you have participated or attend the LCG event, I do not think one has an appreciation of the fun and function of this game. I see it being valuable in keeping tabs on caches out in the field as well as giving us a unique game.

Yes I strongly believe we should. It helps to keep older less visited caches in check and on the radar. And from what I can tell everyone who has joined the games enjoys it very much.

Not only should the WGA continue to support the LCG AND Cache Rescue but we should do what we can to promote this “Game within the Game”. It not only helps out our reviewers by keeping the quality of Wisconsin caches high but also gets people out to some of the lesser visited spots that the state and geocaching has to offer. It is such a unique game that other associations have copied it.

Each year the number of players grows and event “Attended” logs grows, so in my opinion, this is a good thing. Since 2008, the LCG has had 363 players log a Cache Rescue/Lonely Cache. That’s about 70 people a year- pretty good numbers.

I found out about the game several years back and have made an effort to play it regularly. Due to the LCG, some of my great geocaching adventures have come from being a part of the game. This year will be the second year I have cohosted the event, so I do feel pretty strongly in favor of the WGA’s support of the game.

Definitely! I've very much enjoyed participating in the LCG. It has brought me to caches that I wouldn't have necessarily noticed before. I also like the idea of putting a log on a cache that someone has taken the trouble to hide but maybe hasn't gotten found in quite a while. I have not only played the LCG but I've told many others about it, several of whom are now playing. I must admit though that I have done maintenance for other people several times even though there were no points involved, it's just being helpful. I really do think that the LCG is one of the best things that the WGA does and should be supported.
