GC837R0  An A to Z Earthcache Challenge

This is an unpublished cache. I have not been able to find a checker for this.

I am wondering if one can be made by someone in the community?

Thank you,

Challenge Checkers must be requested for any new cache as part of the publishing process.  A reviewer will very likely not publish a cache unless it has a checker.

As pinkunicorn has directed you to, you need to create a new topic in this thread:

Make sure you put your GC code, and the requirements for the challenge.

Please note that the challenge checker creators will not make challenges that are not within guideline (for new caches).  The guidelines are listed here:

The current guidelines demand checkers for all new challenges, so reviewers need to enforce that.

Also note that this challenge is not allowed under the current guidelines, if I understand your idea correctly. It is not allowed to base the challenge criteria on the cache name (which is what I assume "A to Z" means).
