SHOW NOTES FOR EPISODE 209
Mary Hyde Info:
FAQs: The lost treasure of Mary Hyde
July 15-16 – Build your crew by attending or hosting an event and earn a souvenir. The more friends you have on Geocaching.com, the easier it will be to keep sailing on…
July 17-23 – Though the treasure may seem far away, if you work together you’ll earn the first map piece one day.
July 24-30 – Don’t be afraid to take the lead, to earn the next map piece you already have everything that you need.
July 31-August 6 – When you work with a crew, earning the third map piece becomes easier to do.
August 7-13 – Challenge yourself to earn the last piece, or else the search for lost treasure will never cease.
Friend League Introduction:
I want to give you a quick heads up about today’s Geocaching.com update. The release includes the website’s newest feature: Friend League.
The Friend League is a leaderboard that shows geocaching activity of you and your geocaching friends. If you log a cache or attend an event, you collect points in the form of gold coins.
This feature goes hand in hand with The Lost Treasure of Mary Hyde. To earn the souvenir with the first map piece, you and your crew have to collect 30 gold coins during July 17-23. (Read more about the Mary Hyde souvenirs on the Geocaching Blog.)
The rules for earning gold coins change every Monday at 5 am PDT (Pacific Daylight Time), Noon UTC (Coordinated Universal Time). At that time, the Friend League will refresh and the gold coin count goes back to zero.
Friend League is a test feature. We’ll evaluate usage and feedback during The Lost Treasure of Mary Hyde before deciding how this functionality might be used in the future.
Yours in caching,
First “Message in a Bottle” was sent out on Monday July 17th.
