Announcing International Cache In Trash Out Weekend 2011

Recommended Posts

The Groundspeak weekly updated posted this information this week:

 

"Cache In Trash Out (CITO) is the geocaching community's initiative to clean up parks and other cache-friendly places around the world. While out hunting for a geocache, geocachers collect litter along the trails and properly dispose of it. The community also supports the initiative by organizing larger cleanup efforts known as CITO Events. These events may occur at any time of year, but many are held during the annual international Cache In Trash Out Weekend each spring. This year, Cache In Trash Out weekend is scheduled for April 30 & May 1, 2011. Over the course of 2010, the community held nearly 400 CITO Events. Many of those were during Cache In Trash Out Weekend. Let's beat that record! Start planning your CITO events now!"

 

We have posted a CITO event suggestion on the website www.saudigeocachers.com - for the Riyadh area for the weekend of 28-29 April 2011 since we are all working on the "real" weekend - if we get enough people interested to qualify for an EVENT we will post it officially on www.GC.com

 

We have several new geocachers in the area and thought this would be a good way to introduce them to the group, the hobby/sport/activity and have a social event while helping the environment.

 

What are you doing in your area?

Great idea guys. Bestvue organised an excellent CITO last year down in Ruwais here in the UAE. Not a lot of us came - but it was a great event with camping on the beach.

 

Let's be inspired.

Skyjuggler told me about this last night. I'd love to go to a CITO event since I've never been before. But more importantly it would make a great episode for my show. Something with camping and what not sounds like a great idea.

Unfortuantely I will be out of the country that weekend but I hope that somebody will be able to arrange something in Qatar. I am sure if we do a belated one sometime in May that would suffice. :unsure:

We now have 16 people signed up for the 1st Saudi CITO. You still have time to let us know you are coming! :-D
