Circumcenter GCGCX1 was found on April 13 by greenehorn after seeing no action for over 15 months.
FTFC #16 - 2nd Anniversary GCRKVQ was found on April 26th by sbergeon, their first and only find ever! According to their log, they just discovered geocaching. Being as this is a 3-star multi that has had 5 recent DNF's by some very experienced cachers, I wonder if sbergeon logged the wrong cache? Either that, or maybe they stumbled upon the final by accident, figured out what it was, and decided to log into GC.com and play the game. Interesting...
That is all, folks. Now get out there and find those caches!
You can take De Astutia GCN1AN [last found on 1/7/06 by Muddy Buddies] off the list.
