5 September 2012 – A Game of Chess

#30 LESS STRESS CHESS (GC2H255)
Alongside the Onrus Lagoon at Onrus, South Africa

S34°24.981 E19°10.759

This cache is situated on a path running along the eastern bank of the Onrus River estuary.  We set off from Sandbaai, following the VOS coastal path, all the way to Onrus.

The idea of this cache is a continuous chess game played between consecutive cachers.

Chess is believed to have originated in north-west India during the Gupta empire, where its early form in the 6th century was known as chaturaṅga,  referring to the four different divisions of the military – infantry, cavalry, elephants, and chariotry, represented by the pieces that would eventually evolve into the modern pawn, knight, bishop, and rook, respectively.

Way too complicated for the Suikerbossies, so we grabbed Signal the Frog TB instead, and decided to rather leave the game to the masters!

This was Day 11 of 30 consecutive caching days.
