Here's a chance to win a Garmin Oregon and a trip to Newfoundland, Canada. You have to post a photo taken at any of the randomly selected caches across the UK. Each week public voting takes place on those photos posted. It seems that you can only post one photo per cache listed, and can only cast one vote each week. Scottish cachers PYTG were winners last week! One of the 12 winners from the 12 weeks of the competition will be chosen by Garmin for the trip and the rest will win Oregons.

You can vote for this week's photos here:

That's the one I voted for.

Must remember to take a picture at Greyfriar's Bobby when I'm next passing...

Thanks for posting reminders because I keep forgetting to have a look until I see your posts here. Another vote submitted!

Am I right in saying it's only selected caches which can be done?

That's right. You can do a search by county on the website (follow the link for the photos and look on the list on lefthand side of page). There are about 3 selected caches in each county, and it looks like they have been chosen according to a rough geographical spread. For example, for Midlothian, there is one in central Edinburgh, one on the outskirts and one out in the countryside.

When I search for caches in Ross-shire, there are only two and one of them is near Stornoway.

Yet again there are quite a few good ones. Some of which are Scottish caches. Anyone got their picture there?

I entered last week (didn't win!) but nothing in this week. Will have another go next week.

Follieus has a lovely picture in this weeks competition, its called "last light" and is one of the three sunsets entered.

It would be great to get another Scot winning. Laughing

Very Happy
I'm now the owner of a Garmin Oregon 550, thanks to a certain magazine which I won't reveal yet!
