We spent the Bank Holiday Weekend playing in the British Matchplay Scrabble Championships at Yarnfield (near Stone/Stafford). With 21 games over 3 days we didn’t really have time for much caching (not to mention the mental tiredness), so we attempted 3.
The first cache we found before the tournamentm was a fairly one on Yarnfield Green.
The other 2 we attempted, with a non-cacher(muggle) in an extended lunch break. Both caches were in a lovely wooded track about a 1/4 of a mile from our venue the Yarnfield Conference Centre.
One was fairly easy, at a metal gate, the other was a black film canister hidden in ivy.
We’ve blogged before about the difficulty of these caches, and today was no exception. With three pairs of eyes we failed to find it! Still 2 out of 3 isn’t bad considering we were trying to play Scrabble!
PS Mr HG137 finished 7th in Division B (13 games out of 21); and Mrs HG137 finished a prize-winning 4th in the same Division (14/21). Well done to her!
PPS The ivy covered cache was found on Bank Holiday Monday, so it was there !
