GC4QP2T A Christmas Cache VI
December 7, 2013 @ 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM
An event for the young and the young at heart. One year we had snow on the ground. What surprises are in store for us this year? Come help us celebrate the holiday season! 10:00 am till 5:00 pm
Where: Pavilion #1, Pelahatchie Shore Park
When: Saturday, Dec. 7, 2013, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
We have reserved Pavilion #1 at Pelahatchie Shore Park for the day. Lunch will be pot luck. Please post on your “Will Attend” log what you plan to bring. Bring your family, someone else’s family, your favorite dish and beverage, and be ready to have a good time swapping caching stories, TB’s, geocoins, and good cheer! There are a bunch of good caches in the immediate area, so the pavilion will serve as a great central headquarters for those wanting to go out on small cache runs and return to the event for re-fueling and fellowship. If anyone out there has a boat with a motor and is able, there are several hydro or island caches nearby that can only be reached by boat. The pavilion is equipped with a fireplace, and we plan to keep a yule log burning, so bring some marshmallows for roasting or be ready to make s’mores for the kiddies (small and big).
********** PLEASE NOTE **********
Activities include lunch, geocaching, swapping TB’s and geocoins, and lots of fellowship. MSGA shirts, caps, and patches will be available for those who want them. Several geocoin collections will be on display for your perusal and icon harvesting. Bring your extra coins for trading! This is a great opportunity for major milestone awards to be presented, so if you have reached a milestone or are very close, or plan to award one to someone else, please let us know.
Weather permitting, we would like to have a couple of fun cache runs, one during the day, and one at night. The day run could feature some of the excellent caches in the nearby woods that have not received much attention but can require some effort to get to. The night run could feature caches a little more accessible, and with better parking. There is also an excellent night only cache not far away. Both cache runs are in the air at this time. If you have any ideas/wants for either, or would like to set up and sponsor a run, please let us know.
Saturday night, starting around 6:00 pm, everyone is invited to an open house at Amagrud and VAT3’s new home in Ridgeland (N 32 25.195 W090 07.030), just a short drive from the event site (You probably will pass it on your way to the main event). Everyone is welcome to attend, and we look forward to a big crowd and a great time at both events. If you are a beginning geocacher, this is a great way to make new friends and hone your skills by caching with other experienced geocachers and or asking questions. If you are a salty veteran, you know that this is a great way to renew friendships, relax and swap TB’s, caching stories and adventures. Whether you spend the day teaming up with others for short geocaching runs or just sit around talking till the sun goes down, this is a chance to add some more icons to your personal profile, make new friends, and have a great day geocaching.
