When did the tradition start?It started last year at our GeoNord 2016.5. Who officially owns it?I guess we do since we created it (the TB code is owned by -Ruby-), but all those who hold it take good care of it.The theme for the GeoNord 2017 Mega was “air” and held at an old airfield.6. Does it have suggestions, tips, tricks for all Mega hosts to be aware of?Yes! The ammo box contains the notebook with tips and tricks on how to organize a Mega, along with other items or coins to be tracked. Each Mega team must add something to help future events hosts.7. Does it have a webpage?No, we’ve never thought about it but it’s a good idea!8. Is it trackable?Yes! But you must come to a French Mega to get the code! 😀The Golden Ammo Can is trackable, but you must attend an event to get the code.9. What are the top 5 or 10 tips you’ve gotten from it?Well, sometimes it isn’t easy to add a tip without unveiling all the ins and outs of your own organization, and some things are very particular to a specific event, but in general there are a few universal tips:Don’t forget to find a big parking lot near the event location.Toilets are very important.Don’t copy other Megas — be original and give your Mega its own style.Get along with other Mega organizers. Bad relationships and “wars” won’t help you.Activities, activities, activities. People must have fun if you want them to come back next year.10. What tip or trick did you add?We added a few, but our favorite is, “A logbook in a simple notebook is boring. Create an original way for people to log the event.”Good tips: Make logbooks memorable and create lots of activities for geocachers to enjoy.-Vainilla- and -Ruby- also created a wonderful 4.5 minute video highlighting their successful GeoNord 2017 – Oxygen Mega-Event last June. A great time was had by all!Got tips for hosting an event, hiding a geocache, or anything else? Share your thoughts!Share with your Friends:More What is the “Golden Ammo Box” and why is it in a field of airplanes?1. What is the “Golden Ammo Box”?The Golden Ammo Box started as a crazy idea. We’ve seen several trackable objects travelling from event to event, the O.C.B. being the most famous, and we thought, “Why not create a notebook with tips to help Mega-Event organizers?” We realized that a notebook would be too fragile, and then it came to us: what better protection than an Ammo Box? People are crazy about them to create caches so let’s use one. And then the “golden” idea appeared. It gives this item more importance and legitimacy; like it’s a little treasure.2. Is that its official name?Yes. “The Golden Ammo Box.” It’s simple and descriptive.3. Does it only travel from Mega to Mega, or does it serve other purposes?Yes. It only travels from and to Mega-Events in France. It’s like passing a baton. An organizer of the next scheduled Mega comes to the current event. The handover usually occurs on the first day of the event during Meet & Greet. It’s like passing the baton. Boîte à munitions dorée. You’ve probably heard of Mega-Events or even been lucky enough to attend a Mega. But, have you ever thought about what goes into planning and hosting your own Mega-Event? Gosh, if only other Mega-Event hosts could share the best tips and tricks to help each other…Well lucky you! Amazing French geocachers, -Vainilla- (Lorena) and -Ruby- (Oriol), who hosted GeoNord Events for the past three years have come up with a great concept: The Golden Ammo Box. Read on to find out how Mega-Event hosts are paying it forward and helping others along the way.

About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Tottenham midfielder Eriksen: Media creating something that isn’t thereby Paul Vegas10 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveTottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen insists local criticism isn’t affecting Denmark’s players.There’s been claims the national team’s players are fed up with the reporting.But Eriksen says: “There is no frustration on our part. We are the ones who have to play football. In the end, what can be written and said. We are the ones who have to go in and play on the field, so people can relate to it all around and what other people’s opinions are.”Of course, you guys are writing the articles. It is your opinion that is being passed on. If you asked everyone on the team, then I think we had a very shared opinion on how we saw things and how we felt the game had been played.”I understand that it’s not funny to write that we play a draw a couple of times and win 1-0. It’s not as fun to write about as so many other things. Therefore, I think that something is created that is not there.”

Then-redshirt freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett (16) runs with the ball during a game against Michigan on Nov. 29 at Ohio Stadium. OSU won 42-28. Credit: Lantern File PhotoAfter losing its first game in 23 tries against Michigan State last Saturday, No. 8 Ohio State (10-1, 6-1) has to recover quickly before a meeting with No. 10 Michigan (9-2, 6-1). Here are five things The Lantern’s sports editors Ryan Cooper and Kevin Stankiewicz will be keeping an eye on starting at noon on Saturday in Ann Arbor, Michigan.Zeke backing up his wordsAfter the loss to Michigan State, it was well-publicized that junior running back Ezekiel Elliott went on a rant in which he criticized the play calling and announced he would be leaving Columbus after the season.In that emotional press conference, however, the St. Louis native also made a declaration that the sting from the loss would have the Buckeyes show an intensity not seen before to make sure it doesn’t happen again.“We’re hungry. I’m personally not going to let anyone slack off,” Elliott said after the game. “This game means the world to us and everyone in Ohio, and we represent everyone in Ohio. We’re going to come out, and we’re going to play a hell of a ballgame, you’ll see. It’s going to look like a new team.”It is certainly reasonable to expect Elliott to receive more than the 12 carries he did against the Spartans, but what he does with his workload will be an intriguing storyline to watch on Saturday.Elliott’s Heisman Trophy aspirations took a major hit with the loss and only 32 yards in Ohio Stadium, but he still has a chance to make a major statement in The Game, especially given the microscope he will be put over by OSU and national observers alike.Elliott needs 170 yards to pass Eddie George for the second-most rushing yards in OSU history. While that is certainly the furthest thing from his mind heading into Saturday, if he backs up his words, he could very well get there and help keep OSU’s slim playoff hopes alive.Will there be a rivalry moment?As anyone knows, the rivalry between OSU and Michigan is one of the most heated in college football, if not all of sports.With that rivalry territory comes a fair share of moments that capture just how much the teams dislike each other beyond being two of the most storied programs.Taunting, trash-talking, shoving and all-out fighting is always on the table when the two teams meet.The last time the game was played in Michigan Stadium in 2013, it turned out to be a fight that highlighted the afternoon. In the second quarter, OSU then-freshman running back Dontre Wilson got into a skirmish with a group of Michigan players after a kick return, which turned into a brawl. Wilson was ejected for his role in the incident, as was former OSU offensive lineman Marcus Hall and Michigan then-sophomore linebacker Royce Jenkins-Stone.Hall made a memorable exit with a double-handed gesture toward the fans at The Big House.OSU senior linebacker Joshua Perry said he and other veterans on the team have taken measures to make sure the young players don’t let the emotions of the game overwhelm them, but it still would not be an OSU-Michigan game without some memorable moments to accentuate just how little the teams care for each other.Salt in the woundAs Perry said earlier in the week, the team knows Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh is going to use redshirt freshman safety Jabrill Peppers one way or another across the field.The question is just how much the Wolverines lean on the do-it-all star.Peppers will obviously be lined up in the secondary throughout the game, while also getting rush attempts, lining up as a receiver, returning punts and stepping in to play linebacker or even moving all the way to the defensive line.Harbaugh has shown in the past that he is not afraid to rely heavily on the former top recruit in the country from East Orange, New Jersey. And in The Game, which coaches keep in the back of their minds throughout the entire season, he could be saving Peppers’ best performance for last.On the year, Peppers has 40 tackles, including 5.5 for a loss, 11 rushes for 43 yards and two touchdowns, six receptions for 54 yards and 17 punt returns for 194 yards.Peppers is arguably the best athlete in the country, and Harbaugh might use every ounce of that athleticism to keep the Buckeyes on their toes throughout the afternoon.Jake Rudock vs. Ohio State’s secondary All season long, the narrative surrounding the OSU defense was that it can impede offenses manned by pocket-passers, but as soon as a team quarterbacked a mobile player — like Maryland’s Perry Hills, Indiana’s Zander Diamond or Michigan State’s two backups from last week — the defense, especially the secondary, became vulnerable.On Saturday, that narrative will be tested for accuracy. Michigan quarterback Jake Rudock is playing some of the best football in the country over the last three weeks. The redshirt senior has thrown for an average of 344 yards and three touchdowns, including a school-record six scores against Indiana. On top of that, Rudock, a graduate transfer from Iowa, also has the ability to move a little. He by no means will be confused with a scrambling quarterback, but the 6-foot-3 Floridian has caused secondaries issues with his improvising skills. For the season, Rudock has gained 222 yards on the ground, with a net yardage of 145. Michigan will rarely call any designed runs for Rudock, but Harbaugh likes to get him on the move a little bit with bootleg plays. Then, factor in his ability to step up in the pocket and pick up chunks of yards with his highly efficient performance in the throw game, and there is reason to have concern for the OSU secondary. The matchup between Rudock and the OSU secondary could potentially be the most important factor in deciding which team wins The Game. Seniors playing their final regular-season game Last week, the OSU seniors played their final game inside Ohio Stadium. It didn’t go as they planed.But now, they will play their final regular-season game with a shot at redemption and a fourth pair of gold pants.Some of the seniors who will be playing in The Game for the final time include left tackle Taylor Decker, right tackle Chase Ferris, H-back Braxton Miller and Perry. Others include tight end Nick Vannett, defensive end Adolphus Washington and defensive tackle Tommy Schutt.With it being their final regular-season game, it can be expected that there will be some added pep in their step as they try to avoid a two-game skid to end the season. Their senior day at the ‘Shoe did not go according to script, but for many of them, a win over Michigan could help alleviate the bad memories from last week. The performance of the seniors — and whether or not they bounce back or fall flat — will have a huge impact in The Game.
Ohio State men’s soccer head coach Brian Maisonneuve watches the Buckeyes play in the first half of the game against the University of South Florida on Sept. 7, 2018. Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorComing off a 0-0 draw at home against Northwestern on Friday while playing nearly half the game down a man, the Ohio State men’s soccer team (1-5-2, 0-1-1 Big Ten) heads to Ann Arbor, Michigan, to take on the Wolverines (5-1-1, 1-0-1 Big Ten) on Tuesday. Ohio State redshirt senior midfielder Brady Blackwell said even though Ohio State’s battles with Michigan are mostly noted on the gridiron, the rivalry transcends all sports between the two schools. “I think everyone comes here because they know about the rivalry in football obviously, but I think it carries over to every single sport, so we’re not very fond of them,” Blackwell said. “They don’t really like us very much.” The Wolverines come into this week ranked No. 21 in the nation, according to the United Soccer Coaches Poll, and are on a six-game unbeaten streak following their only loss of the season, at home to Tulsa on Aug. 24.Michigan is a team that is both effective and dangerous on offense. The Wolverines have outscored their opponents 15-5 on the season while outshooting them 101-48. The Wolverines’ attack is spearheaded by sophomore forward Umar Farouk Osman’s four goals and two assists, combined with eight points apiece from junior forward Jack Hallahan and sophomore forward Mohammed Zakyi.Meanwhile, the Wolverines are just as strong between the pipes, with sophomore goalkeeper Henry Mashburn currently holding a 0.68 goals against average for the season, accompanied by four clean sheets.“Michigan’s very good this year, very athletic, tough and they get after you,” Ohio State head coach Brian Maisonneuve said. “It’s going to be a battle and we’re going to have to match their fight because you know they’re going to come out a hundred miles per hour.”Maisonneuve said that a top concern of his is how his players will recover on such short rest following the tough double-overtime battle against the Wildcats Friday night in Columbus. “The hardest part about double overtime on Friday is we’ve got to turn around and do it on Tuesday, so it’s going to be a really quick turnaround,” Maisonneuve said. “Managing bodies is going to be the No. 1 thing.”With eight games under their belt, a new coaching staff and system and a whole lot of soccer left to be played, the Buckeyes seem to be settling in.The defense rebounded from a tough outing at Penn State last weekend to shut out Northwestern on Friday despite being a man down, while the offense played its most effective game of the season last time out. The Buckeyes and Wolverines are set to play in Ann Arbor at 7 p.m. on Tuesday.
Swansea have already found their new manager after the relegation from Premier League earlier in May. Carlos Carvalhals successor will be a two time winner of “Manager of the Year”According to Wales Online, It will be Graham Potter from the successful Swedish club Östersunds, who will become the new manager. According to the news site, Potter will fly to Wales shortly after the Allsvenskan-game against BK Häcken later tonight.But the Östersunds CEO Daniel Kindberg refuses the fact that Potter is leaving.“It’s clear that we have a shortlist if Graham leaves. It would be irresponsible not to know who we want – if it happens. But, no, we have not heard from Swansea. No, nothing.”Merson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“How I look at the reporting about Swansea? I understand you want headlines. Graham Potter’s name is exciting.”“But if it is written about Swansea then there are a lot of other clubs that we really know are interested but one of these is not Swansea. There is simply no information we have in Östersund about Swansea,” Kindberg told Fotboll Direkt.Graham Potter have made miracles in his time as Östersunds manager. He started in the club, when it was stuck in the fourth tier. Last year they won the swedish cup and went to the Europa League, where they got all the way to the first knockout stage. They even beat Arsenal at the Emirates.Graham Potter have also won the swedish “Manager of the Year”-award twice in 2016 and 2017.
Juventus are reportedly already working on new signings in spite of an astonishing start of the seasonLed by the likes of Massimiliano Allegri from the touchline and Cristiano Ronaldo on the field, the Bianconeri have been flourishing this season on all fronts.With a record of nine wins and a draw, the Turinese giants top Serie A table, while they enjoy a 3-game winning streak in the Champions League.However, the reigning Italian champions are not fully satisfied with the current roster, as they intend to add more quality and potential to their respective squad.Lukaku backed to beat Ronaldo in Serie A scoring charts Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Former Inter Milan star Andy van der Meyde is confident Romelu Lukaku will outscore Cristiano Ronaldo in this season’s Serie A.According to the Italian newspaper, Calciomercato, Juventus have identified Lyon’s Tanguy Ndombele and Ajax’s Matthijs de Ligt as the top targets for next summer.The 21-year-old French midfielder has been one of the revelations in Europe football over the past year or so, as he continues to impress with Les Gones both in Ligue 1 and the Champions League.On the other hand, the 19-year-old Dutchman is named the Lancers’ vice-captain despite the young age. The Netherlands international has shown immense potential in Ajax’s Champions League quest this season, demonstrating some genius pieces of defending against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena.
Despite their 3-1 defeat at Manchester City on Saturday, Everton defender Kurt Zouma has urged his team to stick to their game plan.Manchester City opened the scoring in the 22nd minute through Gabriel Jesus as the hosts capitalized on a mistake by Yerry Mina.Jesus completed his brace 10 minutes into the second half, before Dominic Calvert-Lewin pulled one back to reduce the deficit, but substitute Raheem Sterling completed the scoring and killed Everton’s hopes of any comeback.“We are very disappointed but we tried to play our football,” Zouma told the club’s website.“We knew they are strong pressing the ball and are strong on the counter-attack but when you try to push forward you have to take risks and we did.“Unfortunately it didn’t go for us but I think we created chances and we can be happy that we tried to play. It’s a defeat but we need to move on.“The goal gave us a bit more confidence but then we conceded the third goal too quickly. In football, you have to be prepared for everything.Premier League Betting: Match-day 5 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Going into the Premier League’s match-day five with a gap already beginning to form at the top of the league. We will take a…“We did our job, we tried to play the way we wanted to. We took our risks but unfortunately, we lost.“As I said, we need to move on to next week. We have another important game at home and we will try to win that.“We created chances against a strong team with strong players.“It’s not difficult to enjoy these type of games against a big team in a big stadium. We had chances, the first one from Richarlison in the first half.“Maybe we should have scored more but it’s done now. Everyone gave 100 percent. Now we’re going to recover and great ready for next week.“We had a game plan and tried to play our match. We will play with confidence. We are at home and will play for our fans. We need to keep the same spirit and move on.”
