first_img[vsw id=”JMYJn9hanHc” source=”youtube” width=”853″ height=”480″ autoplay=”no”]Geocache Name:GeoSnake (GC4YDPC)Difficulty/Terrain Rating:2.5/2Why this is the Geocache of the Week:This week we’re continuing our theme of games in geocaches with this amazing creation that resides in Hong Kong. While last week required you to play a game before you left home, this multi-cache integrates the game right into the middle of the find. In order to get the coordinates for the final stage, geocachers have to play a few rounds of the classic Snake game. The time, effort and technical ability that went into creating this geocache is a perfect example of what geocaches can be when a geocache maker puts their mind to it.# of Finds:11 (hidden in February 2014)# of Favorite Points:9What the geocache owner, CX15, has to say:“My favourite part of Geocaching is to read the logs of people finding my contraptions…I have been trying to push the limits of cache making right from the start. I guess I was inspired by some really cool caches in Hong Kong and wanted to see how far I can go with some ideas (and believe me, I have so many more ideas – the only limit is time…)”What geocachers are saying:“Wish I could unload all my favorite points on a brilliant cache like this! This is truly a world-class grade cache! Thanks for making this one-of-a-kind cache! You really are the maker master. Therefore decided to find this cache on the Maker Madness event day in order to pay my respect to owner!”– samshlau“Yay!!! This cache is def going to my fav list!!!

2016 Harvey Norman All Stars Team Announcement

first_imgTouch Football Australia (TFA) is pleased to announce the TFA All Stars and TFA indigenous All Stars sides to take part in the 2016 Harvey Norman All Stars event to be held at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday, 13 February 2016. Two games of Touch Football will be played as part of the All Stars event, with the latter of the two to take place just prior to the kick-off of the NRL Indigenous All Stars taking on the World All Stars. TFA Chief Executive Officer, Colm Maguire said that the organisation is extremely excited to be again involved in the All Stars concept. “The All Stars is a significant event to recognise and celebrate Indigenous Australians and the diversity within our culture, and our sport, with representatives from across the country to take on one another on the field, as well as come together off it, to aid in the delivery of community and educational outcomes,” Maguire said.“The brand of Touch Football is going from strength to strength, and with our partnerships with the NRL and Harvey Norman, a strong foundation is being set to help the sport achieve great things in our next strategic cycle and beyond.”Phil Gyemore will again take the reins as coach of the TFA Indigenous All Stars Team, with Michael Lovett to again lead the TFA All Stars. Both coaches have had a huge year, being central to victorious World Cup campaigns, Phil as an assistant coach for the Women’s Open and Michael as coach of the Mixed Open side.TFA High Performance Manager, Wayne Grant, spoke of the important role the coaches have played as members of the High Performance program, as well as the 2015 All Stars event. “Both Phil and Mick are fantastic coaches who have an ability to bring their groups together, which is especially important, as many of the athletes have not played together before.”“Both thrive on the competitive nature of the game, and I’m sure will put all niceties aside when the teams take the field.”“We’re really excited about the two playing groups for this year’s event, and are positive that they will represent the sport extremely well, but also put on a great show for all of those watching in the stands and at home,” Grant added. The participants in the two teams have taken different journeys to the All Stars event, the TFA All Stars team is a mixture of those voted on by the public, as well as through selection and CEO picks. An Expression of Interest process was undertaken for the TFA Indigenous All Stars, with players nominating themselves for consideration, and then selected through consultation with the coaches, and the TFA High Performance team. Touch Football Australia would like to congratulate the athletes selected for their respective sides, and look forward to seeing them take the field on Saturday, 13 February 2016.  TFA All StarsJayden BenbowStuart Brierty Hannah Dyball Dylan HennesseyKylie HilderSamantha Hopkin Leah Percy Rob McCarthyPeter Norman Steve RobertsSamantha RodgersKai Simbolon Emma Sykes Louise WinchesterCoach – Micheal LovettTFA Indigenous All StarsScott BundyKristian Congoo Justin CostelloKasey DragisicCody Green Jemma Mi MiKobe Nona Lachlan Pierce Jarrad RotumahTahlulah Tillett Trent ToumaTamika UptonCarly WalshMarikki WategoCoach – Phil Gyemore Stay tuned to the TFA website and social media channels in the lead up to the 2016 Harvey Norman All Stars event for all of the latest news and information.
