October was the first month that the WGA Cache of the Month was awarded to caches in five geographic zones as well as Series of the Month. A total of 18 caches located across the entire state were nominated during the month. Overall, the new format has been quite successful. Along with the new format, we also updated the "award" banner that winning cache owners can post on their cache pages. BakRds designed the new banner, which includes a gold medallion with the outline of the COTM zones overlaid on a map of the state.
