Well, it was fun to find the two caps in Hawrelak park during the snowshoe event, but now, "WHERE DO I LOG THESE CREATURES".

Anyone still have the waypoint name for them, I am missing one, I have BCP338 I think, without my glasses I'm not sure if I read it right.

Ah, you want the Brass Cap Cache. If you lose the URL, you can usually find it near the top of the newest-in-Alberta query.

Simply send OFTH (the cache owner) a private email via his profile, stating the BCP code of the cap you're logging, the numbers you've managed to lift off the cap, and a description of the area. (There are a couple of ways to log it, but this is the one I prefer.) Then log your find to the cache page, like this:

N53 12.345 W113 12.345
BCP337 Hawrelak Park South
[Witty cache log goes here]

Bingo - you're a capper!

PS: Beware - this is probably the world's longest cache page. Clicking "view them all" may crash some browsers and/or blow your bandwidth limit for the month.

I've been keeping an informal ( but accurate ) list of capping stats on the CAC board at this spot

At that location you can see how you stand up against the other cappers.

Links to PDOPS who is the unofficial 'maintainer' of the caps. Smile

The freshest file, IIRC, is on PDOP's' page, but it's a bit hard to find. Here it is:

Right click, save...
