    THE LONE STAR ROUNDUP
    2013


    Entries will be taken at the Roundup before 10:45.

    Voting will begin at 11:00. This gives some time for all caches to be seen before votes are cast.

    All entries must be ready to hide including logbook/sheet.

    You may enter as many caches as you wish. There will be one winner for each category.

    Ballots will be included in registration packets with places to indicate your choices for each category. Please only one ballot per person. Ballots will be available for those who did not register ahead of time.

    All caches entered into the contest will be raffled off for $1 per ticket with the top caches from each category being raffled off last.

    Raffle winners will get to choose the cache they want except for top 3 caches which will go to the final 3 tickets drawn.

    Categories:
    • Most Evil
    • Best Magnetic
    • Best Camouflage
