You can solicit referrals. I shared about the app when I first signed up and got 5 referrals and 250 points to spend on nets.

I finally hit the 100 mark.
Have to really push it to get the next 600 points or so to catch up

Have you tried GPSgames.org Shutterspots? When I was looking at them to see what the waypoint format was when writing up the entry forms, I noticed a person in Charlotte had created about 15-20 of them (if I remember correctly) for the local contest.

Wow, 5 Diversified cacher players are over 100 Monsters captured for the month (even though DudleyGrunt doesn't count as a real player). DisneyScout and HB31 have become only the 5th and 6th people in the world to reach level 10, the highest level. Man, the Monster Cache creator is happy with this contest I'm sure!

I have 34 captured, and I continue to believe I'm going to be in the 45-55 range for the month, for people who want 25 points.

Even though I, like DudleyGrunt, am not a real player, I think I'll be hard pressed to get 200 points. I will capture over 100 Munzees (I might be at about 40), but there is a park with a virtual field a mile from my work, and I plan on hitting that up Thursday or Friday during lunch. That's only good for 25 points though, if I remember correctly.

Is it cheating to use social munzees collected online?

Yes. :D That didn't come up for 30 days, but that's an excellent point. We meant point bearing Munzees. Doesn't matter how easy, or if you set off bombs, or whatever. I should know, I just captured 48 virtual Munzees (no bombs) an hour ago!

I will add that question to the "rule clarifications" blog post, which I will also link to on the main page of the website, as the contest comes to a close, and the entry forms are due. Thanks!

Hmm, going to have to go find more Munzees and I have to figure out how many of my Munzees are social Munzees. :-\

Figured it out. I have 539 captures and 257 of them are social. (I checked my social butterfly badge progress) So, I need to capture 218 more Munzees before Sunday night.

Okay. That's fixed. 509 non-social Munzees, 766 total Munzees. Couldn't sleep this morning, so I went out to hunt Munzees.

Need another rules clarification.

I found one of the WTF Bit Caches listed on OCNA. There is a locationless cache on Geocaching Australia that requires a picture of me with a water tower. They are two separate listings by two separate individuals, but I am using the same location. Does that count as 2 different entries or should I only count it as one for the contest. I did use a completely different picture...
