Geocache Symbols 2022.jpg

Thursday, 2nd- Sunday, 5th June 2022

Royal Geo-Caching Challenge

The Queen’s Jubilee is a once in lifetime celebration and SWAY aims to mark it with a very special Geo-caching to give your minds and legs something to do during the 4-day national holiday to mark this momentous occasion. There may well be lots of exciting events taking place. We aim to give you one more that will get you out in the glorious South Wight, looking for clues.

To tie in with the national Jubilee Celebrations, SWAY decided to design a Geo-caching challenge with the theme of royalty. Some of the clues have royal connections. With the Queen’s desire to establish a green canopy as part of her Jubilee year, we have also located some of the clues in rarely visited wooded areas. The symbols for you to locate have royal themes emblazoned on them – crowns, sceptres and palaces.

We have tried to make this challenge stretch out over the whole area, including Ventnor and taking you to places you may not have visited before. We have thought hard about the clues and we hope you enjoy unravelling them and finding the symbols.

The rules:
1)        You need to register with Catherine, our trusty Administrator by emailing at swayoffice1@gmail.com before Thursday, 2nd June.

2)        The Challenge is a group activity, consisting of at least 3, whether that is a friendship group or a family group. Make sure you give Catherine a contact email for your team.

3)        When you register you may want to give your group a name and list your team members.

4)        On Thursday, 2nd June at 9am Catherine will email out the clues with ordnance survey grid references for you to start the challenge.

5)        As each symbol is found you will need to send Catherine a selfie of your team with the symbol clearly visible. This is the evidence that you have found the symbol. Catherine will keep a record of the progress of each group and their timings, so that by Monday morning, we shall be able to announce the winning group.

There is a special prize waiting for the first group to complete all 20 clues – suitably it is an afternoon tea at the Royal Hotel in Ventnor.
