This is an official event at Lake Monroe, sponsored by Indiana State Parks & Reservoirs. The Challenge starts at the Paynetown SRA Office (4850 S. SR 446, Bloomington). You may begin anytime between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. All cachers who complete the entire Challenge by 4 p.m. will be entered into a drawing to win a 2012 Annual Entrance Pass for Indiana State Parks & Reservoirs.
It’s “year one” of this geocaching event, so we’re going to begin with a Challenge that will take you on a tour of every public recreation area on Lake Monroe (plus a couple of less well-known spots). It’s a BIG reservoir, so be prepared to do a lot of driving - carpooling with your fellow cachers is encouraged! After you reach each location, the caches themselves will require only minimal walking.
In future years, the Challenge will take you deeper into individual recreation areas on the reservoir – so mark your calendar for the 1st Saturday of February every year!
