Thanks to our awesome Missouri Reviewer, Glenn, for keeping us apprised of changes at Groundspeak, below are the most recent changes for Event Caches:
5.7. Changes to Event and CITO Guidelines - February 2015
Event Caches represent the cornerstone of the thriving and growing geocaching community. It's where explorers meet face-to-face, swap stories of their adventures and welcome new geocachers. To ensure geocachers are provided a minimum amount of time to form meaningful connections and build a sense of community, Geocaching HQ has updated the guidelines.
Beginning February 18, 2015, minimum durations will go into effect for Event Caches, CITO Events and Mega-Events.
- Event Caches will now be a minimum of 30 minutes.
- Cache In Trash Out Events (CITO) will now be a minimum of 1 hour.
- Mega-Events will now be a minimum of 4 hours.
We know most geocachers are overachievers. We therefore encourage players to exceed the minimum durations to enjoy more time with their fellow adventurers. We at Geocaching HQ believe the update will help ensure a positive, healthy and growing community into the future.
Thanks Glenn, we really appreciate all the hard work you put in.

A total of 14 four-person teams participated in the Grave Hop Road Rally on Saturday, November 15. This was the first time that L Frank and I hosted this type of event. We had so much fun planning for the road rally, and then hearing about your adventures and seeing your "scavenger hunt" photographs!
All of the teams left from the breakfast event (GC5FJQB) at 7:30 am and had five hours to complete the rally. Each team was give the coordinates to the starting points of 14 different tasks within 10 different cemeteries, each team starting with a different task. Each team also had a list of items to find in the cemeteries that would earn them bonus points. To earn points for the tasks and bonus items, the teams had to photograph all four teammates completing a task or standing next to a bonus item. (Any part of the team members' bodies was acceptable!) Eight teams completed all the tasks, but only four of those teams came up with all the correct answers!
Here are the results:
1st Place = Team # 9 - Swelgus, WadeLori, Kimberteacher, Moonchild1800 - 4405 points
2nd Place = Team # 14 - SGTMTA, Rogbarn, Nan-d1955 - 4115 points
3rd Place = Team # 11 - CKCCachers - 4040 points
4th Place = Team # 4 - Perknstein, Indyana Jones - 3910 points
5th Place = Team # 1 - Quailman2, AFBEE, Geowench - 3860 points
