Notes:

 

This forum topic will likely not be watched by the organizers. All discussion should be directed to the MWGB forums.

We hosted roughly 800 Geocachers in Michigan last summer. We expect to have several hundred in addition this time around. Make plans early to attend.

Some local hotels are offering discounted rates. Call the hotels for details. The hotel next to the fairgrounds may fill before the end of January.

Ample camping will be available at the fairgrounds for the length of the GeoBash only. If you would like to stay longer, before or after, there are other camping options as close as a few blocks that can accomidate longer stays.

The Three Day Schedule will be similar to 2005's schedule. Information sessions will be Saturday with some organized activities at other times.

Catering has been arranged. Details forthcoming.

There will be Tshirts and Coins. Details forthcoming.

There will be ducks, ducks, and more ducks. Penguins and Flamingos are always encouraged to attend.

Hello everyone! Registration is NOW OPEN for the Midwest Geobash. Registration is free. This year we are doing our "will call" a little differently by offering "registration pacakges". Camping is also a registration package. The process of adding people and packages should be pretty straightforward, but if you have problems please email us at info@midwestgeobash.org for assistance.

I'll be in the hotel too :lol: Booked my room yesterday. It's only for sleeping and showering though. Or for Ben and I to barricade ourselves in if the going gets really tough.

 

Incidentally, we have a group rate at the hotel so if you did not tell them you are with MWGB, call 'em back for a discount. I think it's like $15 or $20 a night. Not shabby.

June 20th is the day that a lot of registration packages will be removed from the system. The three main reasons you want to place your order before then are:

  1. You won't miss out on the best deals on the packages.
  2. There may be some personalized goodies.
  3. If you don't register by then, you could miss out on a goodie bag altogether.

Shortly after the 20th will be the cut off date for having everything paid for. If items are not paid for by that time, the items will drop into general inventory to be sold at the event.

 

The last date to purchase Camping: July 13th.

 

All of these items will be available in limited quantities and sizes at the event until they run out, for a higher cost. Consider yourself warned.

I haven't missed a GeoBash yet, and don't intend to miss this one either. Will be camping in the GCG/OKIC area.

 

See y'all there!

I SO wanted to find a way to get there! Almost had myself convinced that I could buck the deadlines, cache my way over from St. Louis, sleep in the back of my truck and participate in the Cache-A-Maniac / Podcacher podcast 'show'. Then I woke up and realized that I'm not 20 years old any more, I need to be at the SLAGA summer picnic on 7/21/07 and spend more time looking for a paying job.

 

Then again ...

Y'know what's awful? I would have loved to go to this event, even though I'm brand new to Geocaching. The awful part is, I was IN Kendallville from the 20-21st, and had no idea this was happening there (like I said, brand new, never checked regional forums before today).

 

ARGH!

 

Well, at least I'll be able to attend next year, hopefully.
