Please bring a sandwich or two (home-made or store bought, we were thinking the submarine size). All sandwiches will be sliced up into "manageable" slices and will be shared with all other attendees. We will provide chips and dips as well as plates and napkins for everyone. Attendees should also bring their own beverage of choice.
We will also provide a fun Geocaching race in which we will place several temporary caches within walking distance of the park and provide their locations to you at the event. The object of the race will be to go and visit each cache. Prizes will be awarded to those who earn the most points (based on visiting the most caches or by finding more difficult caches). There will also be other surprise ways to earn points.
We will also have a raffle in which we will give away unactivated coins, pre-fabricated cache containers and other great prizes.

Here's some info on Roger's Grove:
Roger's Grove - 220 Hover Road
Situated on land owned by Boulder County and by the City of Longmont, Roger's Grove covers 14 acres adjacent to the St. Vrain Greenway. The park is primarily funded by the Roger and Roberta Jones Foundation. Roger Jones (1915-1995), enjoyed walking along the river with his wife Roberta, nee Watkins (1913-1992). Both educators in the St.Vrain Valley School system, the Joneses wanted to contribute an environment for children and adults to visit, learn and enjoy. Roger's Grove is being developed as a district park, arboretum and outdoor learning center. An interpretive center / picnic shelter and outdoor amphitheater have been constructed. In 1995- 1996, Louisville artist Robert Tulley installed several works of art in Roger's Grove as part of the City's Art in Public Places program. In 1996, the City expanded the arboretum and added trails and a Restroom to the park. The north side of the park features a prairie with native and hardy introduced plants suitable for this region. The City's major annual "signature" event, "Rhythm on the River", is held in Roger's Grove every July.
Dogs allowed on leash, please pick up after your pet.
