Event will be published on GC.com around Feb 12th !!

 

Come out on May 12th 2012 to explore the Quinte West area and have a great time with the whole family. There are hundreds of great caches in this area, plus there is a growing number of event specific caches. So come on out and Explore Quinte West, and see everything it has to offer!!! Event ground zero will be held at the National Air Force Museum of Canada, next to the restored Halifax Bomber (free admission). Opening ceremonies start at 9am, full schedule below

 

Quinte West is situated on the shores of the scenic Bay of Quinte - the gateway to the world famous Trent-Severn Waterway. This beautiful natural setting, combined with a progressive and vibrant community and direct location along the Highway 401 corridor, makes Quinte West a great place to live and the right place to do business. Quinte West is definitely a Natural Attraction.

 

New Geocacher? The Quinte West Chamber of Commerce has kindly donated 6 handheld GPS units for use by any new geocachers that want to give the hobby a try. They will be preloaded with all geocaches in the area, including the event ones. There will also be a new geocacher info session offered after the opening ceremonies around 9:30am at the museum.

 

We have some great community sponsors for this event including the City of Quinte West and Chamber of Commerce along with other local business. Thanks to their help we have made this a FREE event open to the whole community with Door Prizes

Handed out a lot of sponsorship requests today to local business's with promising possibilities.

 

The Trenton High School "outer limits" program also supported the idea of them placing lots of event caches.

 

Several radio stations look like they will advertise it with interviews and such, and looks like Tim Hortons will provide donuts and coffee in the morning. Lots more to come!!

 

press release was drafted up and hopefully it be in circulation soon thanks to the chamber of commerce.
