[Awaiting feedback] Checker need for GC8GJM3 - Happy 2020 Challenge

Hi community,

could you please build a checker for the following requirement:

The elevation difference between two geocaches you have already found must be exactly 2020 meters.

Many thanks,
Bojan

I have a feeling that this exact parameter might not be approved by your reviewer because it could compromise rule 4
(Challenge cache owners must demonstrate that there are plenty of qualifying caches to meet the challenge at the time of publication.)

To avoid this the normal criteria is "ar least 2020"

For your criteria we need an extension of an existing script

Please ask your local reviewer if he would publish based on exactly 2020 meters

Thank you vogelbird for your answer. I contacted our local reviewer. In the vicinity (100 km) of the final location there is more than 100 caches with elevation more than 2000 meters that are necessary to get desired difference. I checked possibilities using Project-GC and found many such cache pairs. So the rule 4 could not be compromised.
There is another issue regarding "exactly 2020 m". I will write in next days if something is wrong with this condition. Does somebody else have experience with such condition?
Anyway, I hope that somebody will create an extension to an existing script.

It is the first time that I see a condition of an exact height difference
