The Globalsat Geocaching competition

Globalsat have kindly sponsored our SatNav Expo and have donated a Globalsat GH-601 fitness and training GPS as a prize in the Globalsat Geocaching competition.

While it is normal to use a GPS to locate a cache in Geocaching competitions we appreciate that not everyone will have a GPS so we have designed the competition to work with or without a GPS. If you have a GPS then all you need to do is key in the co-ordinates and go straight to the location. If you don't have a GPS then there are some (easy) clues to follow to find the cache.

When you have found the password come back to the main hall to the Charity Prize Draw stand and your name will be entered on a raffle ticket. The winner of the competition will be drawn from all the correct entries at 14:00 just before the prize draw. You must be present in the hall to claim the Globalsat GH-601, if the first ticket is not claimed then another winner will be drawn.

Important Safety Notice
Neither the Corn Exchange, PocketGPSWorld.com or any of the exhibitors accept any responsibility for any loss, injury or damage caused to anyone or anything during this event. The competition takes place in and around the Corn Exchange without crossing any public roads. You should be aware that there will be vehicles moving about on the property and all precautions must be taken to ensure your own safety at all times. If children are taking part in the competition they must be supervised by a responsible adult.

GPS Competition Instructions

For those of you with GPS receivers the co-ordinates of the cache are:
OSGB grid reference NT 22051 71006
Lat/Lon N 55.92583 W 3.24902

The password is the second word under the red circle. If you have trouble try using the instructions below.

Remember that GPS receivers are accurate to 10 metres and may be affected by a number of factors. On the day the readings were taken

Non GPS Competition Instructions.

The competition for those of you without a GPS is similar to a treasure hunt. Just follow the simple(ish) instructions and find the password.

1. From the Main Entrance head east towards the station.
2. After 50 metres head south
3. When you reach "Concert" turn left and find the clock.
4. Head in the direction of 3 or "III"
5. Continue following the edge of the academy
6. Turn in the direction of the yellow arrow and immediately STOP!!
7. Now look up to your left.
8. The password is the second word under the red circle.


Good Luck everyone!!!
