Quoting Geoaware's announcement about the new recognition program for EarthCache finds.
Quote:
We are very pleased to announce that the new EarthCache Discovery Award program has been launched.

This program rewards people who have visited a high number of EarthCaches. There are five levels.

Quartz - for people who have logged 50 or more EarthCaches.
Mica - for people who have logged 100 or more EarthCaches.
Garnet - for people who have logged 250 or more EarthCaches.
Emerald - for people who have logged 500 or more EarthCaches and
Diamond - for people who have logged 1000 or more EarthCaches.

(The number of logged EarthCache finds is based on your official numbers as shown on your profile in Geocaching.com).

To apply for each award, just visit the EarthCache Discovery Award page at www.earthcache.org and complete the form for each level.

These awards are in addition to the already popular EarthCache Masters Program and finds can be used for both programs.

You can also reward yourself by getting a corresponding trackable EarthCache Discovery Award Tag through the EarthCache store.

I hope you enjoy being part of this new program...and as always, thank you from the whole EarthCache team for being part of EarthCaching!

I got my Quartz and am nearly halfway to Mica. Boy, Garnet seems a long way off though. How about you Lostby, which level are you on?

9 to go to get 100 and the Mica level...thought about going on an EC run today....I could knock the last 9 out in a day near West Bend. I found a bunch in the Dells on Tuesday and Wed. My hope is to get 100 by Fall.

...Unfortunately I have several half finished projects to do around the home....just finishing the week-long process of painting the exterior of my home at the moment.
