GeoCache with CNA!

GEOCACHING CONTEST 2018 – Official Rules


Interested in a chance to win some cool CNA gear and campus bragging rights? We thought so – just keep reading!

  1. Any person working or studying at a campus will be considered part of that campus team. If you are a Distributed Learning student, participate at the closest campus to your location – not the campus where your program is located.

  2. Team members will attempt to find the 17 geocaches spread throughout the province; take a selfie with the banner inside the geocache container; and, return the banner and geocache back in its hiding place.

  3. Send an email with the picture attached to the geocache@cna.nl.ca email address. To make it easier to track the date/time submitted, and to quickly sort/group team submissions, the subject line information is critical. The subject line in the email will identify the campus submitting the geocache and the geocache they found (i.e. if a person from Bay St. George finds the Corner Brook geocache the subject line should be: “BSG – CB”. If the same person found the geocache at Bay St. George campus, it would be “BSG – BSG”).
Here are the list of campus abbreviations, and the geocache co-ordinates:

Campus Lat Long Clue
Baie Verte N 49° 55’ 57” W 56° 12’ 15” If you search at the top of where water falls you might find the spot of our geocache, and if that’s still too hard if you can see the letters N.D then your in the right place!

Clarenville 48 9' 36" N 53 58' 21" W Our Geocache isn’t the only thing planted here

Placentia 47.241078 -53.968654 You won't have far to go to find me.  Just steps away for sure.  You will find me safely tucked in at a popular place next door.  There can be lots of pitter pat of feet above me, where you can hear the ocean roar.
Port aux Basques 47 35' 23" N 59 9' 44" W Go to the largest mariner's navigation instrument.
Prince Phillip Drive N 47° 35.084’ W 52° 43.323’ You will find me near this Portuguese explorer who was one of the first to discover Newfoundland. He has stood guard of the Prince Philip Parkway since 1965 and despite his close proximity to the campus he has yet to choose a program of study.

St. Anthony 51’ 22.512’ N -55’ 35.162’ W Near a large rock near a gazebo

Points to consider:

 
  1. Most unique geocaches located by a campus. You will have to submit proof for locating your own campus’s geocache, so the first team to submit all 17 CNA geocaches, or the campus to submit the most first will win. 
  2. Highest participation rate for a campus. Multiple people from the same campus can submit a specific geocache from another campus, and this will count to participation rates. (i.e. 10 team members from Bonavista can submit the Clarenville Campus geocache, and the same 10 members can submit the Gander geocache. They will receive one participation point for each submission.) A person cannot submit the same geocache twice.
 
Have fun!
