+UK Mega Event Committee Posted January 22, 2008 Share Posted January 22, 2008 (edited) WE NEED YOU....!!" We are pleased to announce that the “Mega” event will be a day event based at the Cedar Court Hotel, a “Best Western” hotel based approx. 5 minutes walk away from the train station in the centre of Harrogate Harrogate’s Cedar Court Hotel is alongside the famous "Stray", a glorious parkland of 200 acres a truly picturesque area. Plenty of free parking is available with easy access to public transport. The whole hotel function rooms have been allocated to us, so there is plenty of space for all of the fun activities that are to be held. The date is Sunday 3rd August 2008. Unfortunately there was not a suitable event location on the 2nd August, but we hope that Sunday 3rd is acceptable. The event times will be approx. mid morning to mid to late afternoon. This should allow for people who wish to travel long distances back on that day ample time to get home before the next morning work/school etc etc There are a number of activities planned for the day which will hope to be of interest to those attending, both new and experienced cachers. These activities will be announced later. We are also planning a number suggested caching trails based upon distance/time/difficulty to take into account the surrounding Yorkshire dales and/or Harrogate centre area for those who wish to pick out the best caching and caches the area has to offer. This should help you plan your trip to Harrogate. Again watch the cache and web page for further details. Bookmarks will be published later. There will be a separate camping event announced at a date soon that will back up the Mega event for those wishing to make more than a day trip. Further news on special event geocoins will be published as soon as the company dealing with the production finalise details We shall be shortly asking via the cache page and our own website (to be published soon) for people to indicate numbers, so that we may be able to prove to Groundspeak that in excess of 500 people are attending. At that stage the icon will change to a mega icon. Please watch the cache page for future developments and news of the event itself Finally, as you can see we have listened to the UK caching community and we thank you for your information. We are aware that we can not please everyone and the date and location might not suit everyone. Thank you for your continued support and I on behalf of the committee look forward to meeting you in August.
