Event or Gathering? I guess you could call it a little of both. We definitely wanna meet some other teams but the challenge itself is going to be quite an event.

I think S is asking if you are going to publish it on GC.com as an event cache.

If you do, be sure you read the guidelines for an event cache and comply with them...

 

You will probably have to schedule a breakfast meet and greet at a local eatery as part of the event, or a picnic lunch or something, as event cacahes won't be approved just for group hunts for a cache...

I don't we're trying to be that formal. We are just inviting people out to hunt our cache on a specific day so we can be there to meet them, and have some cool stuff in the cache itself for this day only.

 

I definatley want to follow the rules.

All those who want to attend this hunt can certainely meet at Harvey's if they want to. I won't be there because some of the things we have planned for the hunt will require some last minute set ups so I will be at the cache site. If enough people want to get a full belly before the hunt I will post Harvey's as an alternate meeting place when the date is set. The date by the way is still open, we would like to do it sometime in May. Does anyone have any preferences?

As a member of the BRP (GM) I can't wait for this challenge. Unfortunately, I will not be participating as I will be assisting in the set-up. I just wanted to put this out there, I believe the are a lot of cachers out there that haven't ventured into the forums yet, like me for instance. We need your help at spreading the word to any fellow cachers you are in contact with to bring as many people to this challenge as possible. The more cachers the bigger the challenge. BRP, Proud to be! :)

BRP = The Black Rock Project. That’s what we call ourselves. I could tell you why we use that name but I would have to kill you (that was just a joke for you over sensitive moderators out there). We're basically just a bunch of guys who are committed to friendship and having a good time and getting away from the wife's from time to time. We’re a brotherhood, a fraternity if you will. Geocaching is just one of the many things we enjoy doing.

Hey Rupert2, go to the web site of a band called O.A.R. and listen to any live version of their song Black Rock. That will clue you in a little. :blink: And yeah GM is right......I do like to get away from the wife for a little while. HA!

 

Time to move this thread back to the top.

Wait one minute, did you just call me scaaarred? Oh, dear lord, I'm afraid I'm gonna have to break out my can of whoop a** on you, my little gerbil friend. Hey, I'll do it in the cold, but if I break out an unprecedented rare exotic case of the pnemonia (sp?), I'm... well... gonna have pnemonia. How about at least march so that maybe it'll be um, like 45 degrees instead of 25. How bout that?

Yeah I said it. It's a common misconception that cold temperatures cause people to get sick. You are actually less likely to get sick in the cold. Not to mention beer stays cold in backpacks in January....an added bonus. Anyway, March is fine with me, that's usually when it snows around here doesn't it??????

Starting to sound like a cat fight. Two members of the rodent family ought to be able to get along better than that. EB they make these things that will help keep you warm in the cold.........it's called a coat (combined with your favorite refreshing beverage). Oh and there will be no excuses for not finding this one, what with the owners being with you. Is yo best friend Eberfam still going? :D

:P Sounds like the chatter here is kind of dying down. Has anyone passed this along verbally to their caching cohorts? Looking to see how much interest there is here. I know of several who are planning on coming that don't post on forums yet. Hopefully you all are doing the same. BRP Represent!

 

:P Emergency blow.....full rise!!!

UPDATE

 

We went out to the OKIE yesterday to do some work on the challenge. Right now the plan is to turn this whole cache into a Puzzle / Multi begining with the challenge, pending approval of coarse. Contact is being made with our local reviewer. Anyway, it looks like there will be 6 total stages covering somewhere between 5 and 8 miles depending on which route you choose. I don't think anyone planning on attending will be disappointed. A date has not been selected yet but it will be sometime this spring. May 6th has already been ruled out due to another event. You may want to bring a lunch...............................

 

On a side note we saw a bald eagle souring above the river at the circle parking area while we were there yesterday.
