Each year PHD Coins hosts a friendly game in Atlantic Canada called
Atlantic Battlecache. The goal is to find geocaches and, using the letters and numbers from the GC code,
take shots on a BattleShip style board to sink the hidden ships there. The game runs from the start of
December to the end of February and prizes are awarded at a closing event.
I.B. Geocaching Supplies is happy to once again be an event sponsor, and our software branch
GcSoft created the BattleCache Hunter program to help
participants find the caches they need to complete their board. You can download the latest version (v1.7)
by clicking this link. The version that downloads will
have the letters for a past board, but you can easily change to the current year's letters by
going to Settings -> Change Board Letters. Likewise, if you already have v1.7 installed from last year,
you can update the letters yourself and preserve all your other settings.
When weather and schedules cooperate, I.B. Geocaching sets up at the closing event with a wide variety
of our products for sale, so come see us there.
