Summary

The first Giga event, Project MUNICH2014 was the biggest ever: the count of WA-Logs as well as the number of attendees. Both were never reached again.

The most WAs at the first day has been logged for 20 Years of Geocaching Prague 2020: 928.

By far the fastest accomplish of GIGA, goes also to 20 Years of Geocaching Prague 2020 with only 34 days after publish! Followed by GeoWoodstock 2018 (USA) with 135 days and GREAT MORAVIA 2017 with 136 days after publish.

GREAT MORAVIA was the first Giga were the number of Attended-Logs was significant lower than the number of WA-Logs. Same effect accoured at GeoWoodstock and it is stated also to some Megas.
