A simple virtual cache that was thrown together during down time at the annual Gus Macker 3 on 3 basketball tourney, June 2004. The cache requires you to visit the statues of three historical figures (within a short proximity of each other), and record the name and some facts on each.

The cache was placed with the streets closed down for the weekend, but traffic will definately be a problem during weekdays. The cache is available 24/7, and the best time would probably be evenings or weekends. The terrain, while easy, is not handicap acessable, hence the 1.5 star rating. Plenty of paid and free parking nearby, but none in the immediate vicinity of the statues.
