Description

The Fizzy Challenge is a series of challenge caches. The first Fizzy Challenge cache was created by Kealia to honor the contributions of FizzyMagic to the local geocaching community.

FizzyMagic's FindStats program performs statistical analysis of GPX files, and reports (among other things) the number of each type of cache found, and the number of caches found of each difficulty–terrain combination. The challenge is to find at least one cache of every difficulty–terrain combination (81 unique combinations), while also finding at least one of each type of cache (ignoring certain extremely rare cache types).

The listing for the first Fizzy Challenge cache includes the actual coordinates, but imposes the additional requirement that the challenge be completed before a find can be logged. The owners of many Fizzy Challenge caches follow this example. Others publish bogus coordinates, and email the actual coordinates to geocachers who send proof that they have completed the challenge.
