Nevada Trophy Practice Day

FYI all:


Livermore, CA; The Off-Road Experience is pleased to announce its first ever GPS- Geocache  Nevada Trophy practice day to be held in the Livermore Valley. This friendly competition is to help amateurs and experts alike, giving them the opportunity to hone their GPS and navigational skills, while dealing with time-management. Like Nevada Trophy, which is in its eighth year, participants will be searching for waypoints, the points value will vary from 100 to 1000 points, the higher the value, the more difficult to find them. But it doesnt end there, as penalty points can also be incurred, for example; 200 points per minute if youre late (beyond your scheduled in-time). Prior to the days event, Off-Road Experience personal will go over the basics of GPS navigation, and how to use the route book. Teams (made up of a driver & navigator) will depart at one-minute intervals.

Cost for the event is $75.00 per car (2-adults). If you chose to participate in NVTR2005, then the entry fee will be credited to that event

Required items are a GPS, compass, Northern California Atlas by DeLorme (laptops are permitted), in addition to pens/pencils. There is no vehicle limitation.

Those considering or planning on participating in the Nevada Trophy on July 8-9, will no doubt benefit from this event. Nevada Trophy has been in magazines around the globe, and is a GPS event you surely dont want to miss, and this year it promises to top all previous events.
