GCPC EPISODE 503 Show Notes

Hello everyone,

I want to give you a quick heads up about today’s Geocaching.com update. The release includes the website’s newest feature: Friend League.

The Friend League is a leaderboard that shows geocaching activity of you and your geocaching friends. If you log a cache or attend an event, you collect points in the form of gold coins.

This feature goes hand in hand with The Lost Treasure of Mary Hyde. To earn the souvenir with the first map piece, you and your crew have to collect 30 gold coins during July 17-23. (Read more about the Mary Hyde souvenirs on the Geocaching Blog.)

The rules for earning gold coins change every Monday at 5 am PDT (Pacific Daylight Time), Noon UTC (Coordinated Universal Time). At that time, the Friend League will refresh and the gold coin count goes back to zero.

Friend League is a test feature. We’ll evaluate usage and feedback during The Lost Treasure of Mary Hyde before deciding how this functionality might be used in the future.

Yours in caching,

Chris Ronan
PR Manager
