The Christmas season got off to a flying start in Kent with the meet on 1st December 2012. I had heard about other counties giving out awards at their monthly geocaching meets and thought it was about time Kent County Cacher’s started their own tradition of certificates. I do hope they were well received and below you can see who achieved what;
CadencetheGrokid, Geowolf97, Joeytjap, QB and DB

The following awards were given with fun in mind. Some of which fellow geocacher’s voted for during the meet. We had a lot fun thinking up some categories and we hope to have different ones next year.

To qualify for this award, geocachers voted for other’s who they thought deserved to be recognised for taking the most direct route regardless of obstacles in their way. The winners were shocked that others knew about their embarassing experience of being locked in at Brand’s Hatch golf course and trying to drive their way out on to a nearby road, which wasn’t a road at all, it was part of the golf course. Well done to Sandra123 & kat15.
