[Awaiting feedback] GC222BN - Alberta Provincial Parks Part One of Triple Crown

GC222BN - Alberta Provincial Parks Part One of Triple Crown
Checker Request

I require a checker for the 2009 grandfathered challenge cache.
This cache is Part One of the Alberta Triple Crown. Part two is the Municipal Districts Of Alberta (GC23E9E), and Part three is archived cache (GC23J8M) which I am trying to resurrect with GC8GMCY (soon as I get a checker).

The challenge is to find a least 1 cache (any type) in at least 60 Alberta Provincial Parks. There are 77 Provincial Parks in Alberta of which 65 currently have caches. To date, four cachers have qualified with at least another ten working on the challenge. I was number four to qualify and adopted the cache November 18, 2019.


Below is the list of Provincial Parks with their associated polygons.

There is one exception in the 77 polygons. The last polygon for Sylvan Lake Provincial Park can only be counted if the cache was found before January 17, 2018, as the Park lost its Provincial Park status on that date.

Thanks in advance

P.S. Cache Alberta!

I have gsak polygons built for all 77 parks and are available for the checker. Below are a few examples:

Although we can make a polygon checker this is not allowed under the new guidelines

Please read https://www.geocaching.com/help/index.php?pg=kb.chapter&id=127&pgid=206#criteria

Not acceptable

This cache is a grandfathered cache (hidden in 2009) and I have all the polygons. Does this make any difference??

Thanks in advance....

The problem is the new cache you are trying to create as mentioned in GC8GMCY - Alberta Map Sheets Part Three of Triple Crown

If we drop the GC8GMCY, can we create a checker for the grandfathered cache?
