+tsunrisebey Posted October 16, 2008 Share Posted October 16, 2008 When I wrote my entry for this thread, it was about 1 in the morning and I was pretty tired from traveling and the event. So I wanted to add on to what i originally wrote if I may. This was the 2nd Mega event I have attended since I've been geocaching. It was the 1st coin related event I've been too. Montana isn't exactly the hub of caching events and events are always so far away for me no matter where they are. So with that in mind..... For those of you who lurk or don't post much or are maybe a bit introverted.... for those of you who read these forum threads and get frustrated with posters or sick to death of the everyday crap posted on here and maybe, just maybe decided not to attend these big events because of the above reasons or others (other than can't afford to go type of things). Let me tell you (I did say something like this after GW6 too). Please consider going to a Mega in the future. Don't let shyness, distance, language barrier or these threads hinder your coming to an event. I think you'll find these events to be alot of fun and a great way to put faces to names, see the personality behind the poster and learn that most people are very outgoing, happy to meet you, and very generous (I won't lie and say there aren't some duds in the group ) but overall it's a really great experience. The people who organize and put these events together really put alot of time, effort, and money into these things. The 2 I've been to have been very well organized and I've had a really nice time. You can always find someone to talk to, it's a great way to make new friends and touch base with old ones. I really wish I could get to more of them. I can guarantee you'll be smiling and laughing alot if you make the effort. The best part of this whole thing other than the Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream store at the Denver airport (that I hit to Pitt and back ) was just meeting a bunch of people that I have chatted with here over the months and getting a chance to meet people who buy my designs. It doesn't get much better than that. Again, kudos to the GCF crew and all those involved in making this event a success, it's the reason I try to attend a couple of big events each year! Thanks for the memories but I am happy to be home now with my dogs Quote Link to comment
