OCNA Admins and friends of OCNA – ALS Ice Bucket Challenge



OCNA Admin Mr.Yuck received the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge from guest blogger HikerJamz about 9:00 PM on Saturday night, September 20th, and did the challenge within 24 hours outside the event cache Happy Trails, BarbershopDru in Tonawanda, New York. He declined (i.e. forgot) to challenge anyone else.

OCNA Admin DudleyGrunt’s Father Ben was diagnosed with ALS in late October, 2013. Please visit DG’s fundraising page at tinyurl.com/bens-buddies to see DG doing the Ice Bucket Challenge, and please consider donating.

OpenCachingNA Diversifed Cacher Contest winners announced!

i-dont-always-win-like-charlie-sheen-but-when-i-do-i-win-bigThe winners were drawn for our August 2014 Diversified Cacher Contest on Wednesday, September 17th at 9:00 PM, and we have completed the process of of tabulating them here on our blog. As everyone who has been following along knows, we awarded 3 initial “winners choice” prizes on Sunday September 14th, and this drawing was for the remaining 29 prizes, awarded in order of monetary value. Congratulations to all our winners, many players won multiple prizes. A comment to our post yesterday announcing the winning numbers references trading a prize. That’s an excellent idea, trading would probably occur if these prizes were given away at a Geocaching event. There will be a copy and paste disclaimer at the bottom of every winner’s email saying that they should mention if they’re interested in trading in their reply, and we’ll do our best to “hook you up” with other interested parties. Without further adieu, here are the winners:

The OpenCachingNA Diversified Cacher Contest: Did you win??

The numbers have been drawn for the remaining 29 prizes. You should give us at least 24 hours to tabulate the prizes and their respective winners in table form, and to notify all the winners via email. In the meantime, you can do a little work, and see if you won anything yourself. This will be fun, it will be just like looking at a Powerball lottery ticket to see if you won on that. :-). Below, copied and pasted from a previous blog post, are the entry numbers assigned to every player. Below that is a screen shot of the 92 random numbers selected tonight. Click on that image to open in a large lightbox window, and BYO reading glasses if you need them. Note the number 65, also drawn on Sunday night, was drawn again. That gets thrown out. So we are taking the first 30 numbers drawn; the first being 42, and the last being 18 on the second line. Refer to http://www.opencaching.us/articles.php?page=divprizes for the list of prizes, keeping in mind that The Magellan ExploristGC, A Munzee Virtual Package, and the Cache at Night Gift certificate are off the board. So 42, the first number drawn, win the SPOT II Tracker, and then down the list in order, ending at 18, which wins 250 Monster Coins. Good luck!
