+redstareg Posted September 6, 2006 Share Posted September 6, 2006 (edited) I think it's time that we have a MEGA event in Southern California!!! The date will be Saturday, June 23, 2007 at will be at the Emabarcadero Marina Park South - right behind the convention center and located close to most of the downtown hotels. The event will coincide with the ESRI 2007 User's Conference which takes place June 16th-22nd. For those of you that are unfamiliar with ESRI, they are the largest GIS (Geographical Information System) modeling and mapping software and technology. On any given day, more than 1,000,000 people use ESRI's GIS to improve the way their organizations conduct business. The ERSI User's Conference brings thousands of people to San Diego each year and many of them are Geocachers!! I have been in contact with ESRI, as well as several vendors, lots of Geocachers and Groundspeak regarding the event and so far the event planning has been very well received!! Lots of games, caching, contests, food, drink and much much more planned for the day and into the night. One group of cachers from Redlands, California is also going to try to break their record of grabbing 234 caches in a 24 hour period - I think they will need some competition??? I am going to be asking several Geocachers from the San Diego area to assist in planning by sitting in on a planning commitee. We will meet monthly to go over details, ideas, activities and anything we'll need to pull the event off without a hitch. If you are interested in sitting in with us, please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know!! Edited September 6, 2006 by redstareg Quote Link to comment
