Are we really the first team to place an Intent? Or are we in the wrong place? Wouldn't miss it for quids, sure, we'll be there - two in the team, adults arguably, and we'll be in our caravan, no power needed. The First Mega was so terrific, undoubtedly everyone will return plus all those who have heard what they missed. Great work, guys.

Just a short update.

 

Just an update from the Committee with exactly one year to go to the start of the first ever 5 day event. icon_biggrin.gif

 

The Oz Mega Committee is constantly working behind the scenes on a daily basis getting all components into place and locked in .Much work has been carried our with onsite meetings and sponsors agreements and contracts.We have many assistants in many locations completing logo's, websites, and infrastructure plans for set up to the event.

 

The geocaching.com page has been complete for many weeks and ready for release on the last week of May. We have permission from Groundspeak to list it early and will ask for ' Will Attends " in May.

Albury City Council and Albury Tourism have been a great help in all areas concerned. The front page here on this topic has been updated.

 

The Albury Wodonga Equestrian Centre will host the Australian Crosscountry Championships on the weekend prior to the mega.

This occurred recently and after witnessing the grooming of the event on site this year , geocachers will have a professionally groomed and A1 manicured location to follow on with next year.

The event facility is 1.4 kms long and 1 km wide with ample camping if numbers surge.

We have kept costs down for geocachers by securing more sponsors from all types of businesses and industry.

 

We will try to submit updates till the release date and the Committee thanks you for all the interest and intents to date.

 

Thankfully,

Greg

President.

After many months of preparations, Australia's next mega event is set for release.

 

This Thursday at 9 AM, the OZ MEGA ALBURY WODONGA will be published in the NSW section.

 

The Committee will ask for "Will Attends " and registrations will open from August.

We are 5 months ahead of our predicted schedule ,which gives us ample time to streamline as we go.

 

Both Groundspeak and the Albury City Council have been 100% committed and keen in all aspects of this large anticipated event.

 

The Committee will make its final 3 days of adjustments on the website and make a final confirmation Wednesday night that everything is ready for Thursday morning.

Tomorrow morning , Thursday, 2 nd June at 9AM, the OZ MEGA ALBURY WODONGA event will appear at the top of the NSW listings on geocaching.com.

 

The page has a link to the website with all the tabs of information posted across the top.

Most of the information you need 10 months out is there.

 

The meals list and prices will be added at a later date but will be similar to Wagga if you attended.

 

The Oz Mega Committee will please ask for "will attends " from teams. We ask you list how many you think are attending / town and state you reside / if camping , powered site or staying in Albury.

Then the total of people at the end.

Dont worry too much if you state 6 and 3 only make it or/ dont worry if you state 2 and 4 end up attending.

This stage just gives us ideas of numbers plus percentage staying on site. :D

We understand many teams will not know holiday availability and work rosters 10 months out, so it will take many weeks, months and probaly to xmas till alot know. :D:D

 

We please ask all teams not to place questions on the page as other teams will tend to answer them and people will be on "watchlists " and all this will filter thru to emails.

The Committee has provided 2 places to email the Committee for questions but we figure the questions wont be as many as a large percentage have been to a MEGA and sort of know what goes on.

 

We understand many will want to know much details about meals , stallholder availablity, games details, pathtags and many other components .We have about 80% percent of details on the website and information will appear as we update it.

As promised, we will start a new thread for Committee updates in a few weeks. :D

 

 

At this stage we wish to thank everybody who has been of assistance just to get to this stage.We are 5 months ahead of predictions. Much thanks must go to Groundspeak, Albury City Council , the Sponsors, with all the rest listed on the website who have been directly involved. :D

 

The Oz Mega Committee now looks forward to your "Will Attends " from 9 am tomorrow morning and its all fingers crossed now for everything to fall into place at 9am.

 

Thankfully,

Greg

Hello coyoty05,

We see that you are based somewhere around the Albury region which is ideal for you. Not sure how many are in your team or how close to the Equestrian Centre you live but will give you some details.

 

Basically, a Mega Event is an event where a minimum 500 people must register.Its a gathering and get together of geocaching teams from all over Australia and many other countries.

As you can see on the website here...http://www.ozmega.com.au/,

 

Its a mixture of many components.

Firstly, you can camp with the crowds which is recommended to get into the spirit. Many locals are. You can also commute daily.

There will be geocaching games provided on sheets within your "Registration Pack ".You can chose to compete in all or none. You can sit back and relax within the site or get out and about or a combination.

 

Most be competing in the games provided, then coming back late afternoon, enjoying a nightly meal available and then moving to the entertainment area. All four nights will be full of entertainment. Even if you were not a geocacher, these nights are 4 great nights of a variety of entertainment, speeches, prizes, presentations, awards,auctions, lucky draws, competitions, and all shown live on the big 10m wide screen next to the stage.

 

Plenty of stalls will be on offer for your viewing all over the 4 days. Meals constantly available.

 

But, most of all , its all about the new friendships made, teams to meet you have only seen mentioned in logs , great stories to tell and hear, and all the socialising over the entire event.

The choice is yours of how you spend your time.

Its an event not to be missed , especially as you are a local. Over $1,000,000 will be generated to the Albury economy and the media coverage will be in newspapers and on TV.

 

If you are thinking of going, just place a "Will Attend " on the GC page , stating how many in your team, plus if you are camping or not, and day of arrival.

Hope you can make this fast approaching much anticipated event.Looking forward to your "Will Attend ".

Third last update:

A briefing about the Complex. The starting co-ordinates on the MEGA cache page will place you right to the automatic boom gate.Just edge your vehicle within half a metre and the boom gate opens.

On your first arrival, you will be welcomed just inside the gate by volunteers who will give you your first 2 gifts. You will then be directed to either your 1 of 79 powered sites, the camping only areas or a special "Day Parking " spot which are all signposted.

There is only one gate into and out of the complex.Boomgate only.All 16m wide roads go clockwise only.

Please take your time to get familiar with where everything is located . If you went to Wagga , this place is 16 times the size. 1.5 km's long by 1km wide.We will be using an area of 1km for all camping etc and the rest during some games. You will be overwhelmed by the size at first so let the volunteers assist.

 

If you have a powered site between 1 and 32, you will need to top up your water tanks near site 20 before parking your van in.

With the latest registrations in , the tally has grown from 783 last Thursday to about 814. Last tally update Wednesday night.

Hi Greg (and committee)

I wish you a great weekend and smooth sailing. I sure wish we could be there but we are back in Canada now and will be attending the WestCan 2 Mega in July.

I was wondering if there was any way I could buy an Oz mega 2 geocoin as my Oz mega 1 coin is quite lonely.

Cheers!

Final update :

A big day today with all the final components in place.

 

The Committee requests you please wear your event nametags at all times even throughout Albury as you visit Sponsors during games.

 

The first movie commences at 7pm sharp tomorrow night under the stars. Two appropriate movies have been selected.

We have more late entries filing in with an expected 830 plus people attending.

If your a power site team , be aware of the amperage , try to use one appliance at a time, otherwise you could trip the circuit breaker.

Remember the 10kph speed limit at all times as members use horses at certain places.

We have saved all the surprises of the event for the Friday to Sunday night 3 entertainment packages to give all arrivals a fair chance to see something special. All we can tell you is not not miss those 3 nights.

 

If you are camping there is plenty of room for teams to spread out. Please try to get your bearings when you arrive in the first hour as this complex is daunting at 1.5 km's long.

All is set with Prime TV covering many highlights , the Bordermail doing some stories and happy snaps and a motorhome magazine covering the event.

 

Only Committee, workers , stallholders and volunteers will be allowed in between 6am and 9am.

First official entry at 9am.

Dont forget your camera , sense of adventure, camp chair and opportunity to make dozens of new friendships ahead.

The Oz Mega Committee now welcomes all entries from Australia and many overseas countries to 4 days of some great times ahead.

We have also been blessed a a great weather forecast.

Thankfully,
