So when IS Easter?

Do this equation and you will know:

c = y / 100

n = y - 19 * ( y / 19 )

k = ( c - 17 ) / 25

i = c - c / 4 - ( c - k ) / 3 + 19 * n + 15

i = i - 30 * ( i / 30 )

i = i - ( i / 28 ) * ( 1 - ( i / 28 ) * ( 29 / ( i + 1 ) )

* ( ( 21 - n ) / 11 ) )

j = y + y / 4 + i + 2 - c + c / 4

j = j - 7 * ( j / 7 )

l = i - j

m = 3 + ( l + 40 ) / 44

d = l + 28 - 31 * ( m / 4 )

I find it much faster and easier to just google it

Im lucky I stumbled across the bottom half of this thread and I see a discussion about the Quad Cities Cache Machine.

Travis, could you start a thread for it so that peeps can find it quicker?

As soon as I figure out a date, yes. Otherwise, the thread that everyone will be looking at for the next three months will start out with March season April season March season April season Wabbit season.

So, um... timidly... April 18? Don't tell me that the Flying Spaghetti Monster is planning a Haggis Hunt to celebrate Paul Revere Day.

No fair, Travis! You will ruin International Juggler's Day and National Animal Crackers Day for me.

Shouldn't that be The Jester's complaint?

How about March 21st for the Cache Machine? That seems like a good date.

(It's also a little more likely that the weather will be better and the passes more open, which is why I'm not looking at March 21.)

Remember last year's YCM?

Me likes April 18th!!

It appears that there really isn't going to be an ideal day for everyone. I am in a wedding on April 18th, so that date won't work for me. Not that I expect an event to be scheduled just for MY convenience.... but I can always dream....

Nope! I have multiple GPSr's that I can juggle while caching, and munch Animal Crackers while driving. I'm complaining about missing the Haggis! I haven't found any since we were in Scotland - even the local Highland Games can't find any.

Huh? What?!?! Sorry, the googly eyes were burning so I had to come and see what the discussion was all about.

You can always make your own. Don't worry, I won't be at all offended if you don't invite me to partake.

I was wondering if you would show up...

OK, April 18 it is. Sorry, Pandora :-(

ihavecats is who you should be afraid of, she has the wedding conflict on that date.

If you haven't had any, you don't know what you've missed. It's actually quite tasty. Haggis, Neaps & Tatties is common Scottish meal. And knowing what it's made of doesn't bother me, anymore than knowing what goes into some of those tasty sausages I like does. Maybe I should make one and bring it to the next geo-potluck... Of course, I won't tell anyone what it is until they've had some...

If you go through all that trouble, I will try some. (feeling quite safe because if sounds like an all-day ordeal to make it and you'll never find all the mutton offal that goes into it)

I wouldn't commit yourself yet PP...you might want to ask grossi what she thought of it. She tried it in Scotland when she was there recently...

I don't think he needs to be "afraid" of me, but cats can be known to bite and scratch!!! Oh well! Maybe the wedding will be postponed! I can only hope!

go put some lipstick on the grooms collar and that will at least get the wedding date pushed back! Well a dedicated geocacher would do that but I understand if you heart isnt into it we all have different levels of comintment to geocaching.

Ha! Ha! Ha! I don't want to get that close to the groom! I have been wanting my friend to postpone the wedding (indefinately....permanently!) anyway, but that is just my opinion. Believe me.... my dedication to geocaching is greater than my dedication to this wedding.....however.....she has been a close friend for many many years and at my advanced age, I'm even a bridesmaid! This is a major bummer to me. A cache machine in my general area of the woods, and I can't go to it. <sob, sob> I'm sure you guys will have no fun at all without me being there!

Weddings happen every day...cache machines only happen every few months

You actually don't have to make it to bring it. I've even got some in my pantry. Not the same as from scratch, but much easier to deliver.

They even ship it pre-made and frozen...

Wow! Thanks! Great link, I'll have to order some soon...

The GPS Adventures Maze Exhibit in Seattle has been published. The Pacific Science Center will host this exhibit from March 28 through May 4, 2009.

Hope to see you there!

Oh man!! I wonder if they could re-schedule that for the weekend before. I'll already be in Seattle then for spring break.

It might be time to start this thread.

I was thinking of booking a room but I'd like to have an idea where the start and dinner are going to be (Lewiston/Clarkston or Pullman/Moscow).

well just stay tunned. when the page is posted it will all become clear. we have a deal on hotel rooms in lewiston so please hang on

I was able to get a room at the Red Lion in Lewiston for \$55 a night through Priceline.

Thanks Brad. If the page is almost ready, I guess can be patient a little longer. I just don't want to get a room in Lewiston if the start, or dinner is in Pullman.

A separate thread for this event would still be nice when Travis is ready.

I'm with ya. I hope Travis posts something soon, so I can get my room booked.

Berta, Nick and Zoey will be very close to the hotel we have made plans with... this is one you won't want to miss!

I think I understand this. However, I've gotten stuff wrong in the past, so I want to be sure.

I'm supposed to log a "Will Attend" on the cache page before the event. Then I'm supposed to go to the PSC and check out the maze. Finally, I should log that I attended the event. Right?

Is there anything more to it? Will there be some way for us 'veteran' cachers to recognize one another? 'Cause so far, the only cachers I know by sight are a family member and a guy who married an old high school friend. I'd like to meet some of the Seattle crowd, though you might think I don't, since I haven't gone to any gatherings or CITOs or anything in the year I've been doing this.

Actually, there's a whole lot going on this weekend and it's going to be pretty hectic and confusing for some.

First, Groundspeak is hosting a 2-hour regular Event Cache this Saturday to celebrate the Maze opening. Attending that allows you to post an Attended log and get an Event Cache icon on your profile. I'm sure there will be name tags for everyone to wear...so all you'll have to do is read everyones chest to see who they are.

Second, the GPS Adventure Maze opens its run at the Pacific Science Center. People who pay to go to that and complete it get to post an Attended log and get a new icon for their profile. The maze will be at PSC for a few weeks so it doesn't have to be done this weekend.

So, you can potentially get 2 new icons for the events in addition to any other caches you find during your trip.

Thanks. I knew I was misunderstanding something. I had somehow missed that there are two different caches involved: the length-of-exhibit unique icon GCMMFN and 2-hour event GC1MMGC.

It's all clear to me now.

For those who can't make Saturday's opening, there is a coupon available for a 1 dollar entrance on Monday 3-30 at KMPS.

A little after 4 am and walking out the door to drive 300+ miles to seattle.

I cant wait!

...and a great time was had by all! We estimated about 300 folks showed up for the opening event. What a crush! But great to see folks from near and far (Montana, Oregon, New Zealand!). And the GPS Adventures Maze was very well done (even if a couple of the coded doors kept sticking). Woo hoo, a new icon!

I got one and it looks great but Oakcoins doesn't recognize the tracking number to give me an activation code. Anyone else have this trouble?
