International Earthcache Day 2015

Recommended Posts

Has the date for this been fixed yet?

 

http://community.geosociety.org/EarthCache/events/earthcacheday

Each year GSA celebrates International EarthCache Day on the first Sunday of Earth Science Week and the last day of World Space Week.

Mark your calendars for future Earth Science Week dates:

 

2015 October 11-17

 

2016 October 9-15

 

What are the plans?

 

Will we have another run/walk as part of the event?

 

I'm guessing you are asking about regional events?

So that is Sunday 11th October 2015 and Sunday 9th October 2016

 

This year the geological society wanted us to organise runs/walks so I was just wondering what they will want in 2015.

Thanks for checking. GSA has made no decision yet regarding the run/walk option. But it is something under consideration. We will post on Facebook and in the forums when we have a plan, but it probably won't be for a few more months.

I went to the World Space Week Website and registered an event for International EarthcacheDay. I will complete the details when we know what GSA wants for an event,

I have planed a geological walk round the outside of the British Library in Central London,England and will publish an event cache once we are in three months of International Earthcache Day but I was wondering whether there will be a souvenir and what we have to do to earnt it?

I'm putting together an EarthCache event for Northern Colorado. I have not been able to find expectations for the events anywhere? Have they been posted somewhere?

I just had my International EarthCache Day 2015 event approved - GC63Y4R

Very nice. Looks like a pretty full agenda for an hour meet up :o

 

Best of luck with your Event!

Thanks.

I'm pretty sure I can cover all that in an hour, because I still have the materials I used for my 2013 and 2014 events, and that's about how long it took before.

I think it's a shame that they make the souvenir only available one day, and a Sunday at that. In many areas, they are few and far between, or folks have everything nearby. Why not let folks find one over at least the weekend, and perhaps even over the course of a week. This isn't like International GC day or February 29 where any kind of cache counts.

I see it just like any other event. We know ahead of time and can make plans to take part or not. :anibad:

Yeah, that's how I see it. My newly published EarthCache received a couple dozen logs on Sunday, and a number of them expressed thanks for the opportunity to earn the Souvenir. But I wasn't able to get the Souvenir myself. Not because it was Sunday, or because it was a Canadian holiday, just because of they way my schedule worked out that day.

 

So it goes.
