Ottawa Event

Recommended Posts

Hey fellow Ottawa Cachers & Neighbours!

 

We are currently planning another get together, but have not posted it yet as we are finalizing details. However, I thought I would give you a heads up so that you could mark your calanders. The event will take place Saturday, November 16th and will run all day and into the evening, it will be similar to the last event, 'Go and Get em', since it was so successful, but will have some new twists and a new end location.

 

Cheers,

 

Nammie

Good idea. We had a lot of fun last time. We enjoyed meeting everyone. I might still be out hunting since this will be the last weekend for Deer season. Unless I get lucky early in the season. I'll try and make it out there if not Good luck and have fun.

We will post the plan today. The only thing that is undecided is the end meeting location. The Barley Mow was fun last time but we thought perhaps we should try a different venue.

 

Do you guys have any ideas?

Sounds great. I'll have to work some magic here at home as the event lands on my daughter's birthday (and her first ever birthday party with her school friends). I know what you're all thinking, "Hey, why not a geocaching birthday party?" but unfortunately I doubt I could get all the parents to sign the necessary waivers.

 

Anyhow, I'm sure I can swing something...

We are still planning the event for the 16th and have confirmed a meeting location; however, we just have not created the cache page yet, will do so tonight or tomorrow.

Love to, but I've been booked for months for something else that Saturday. icon_frown.gif

 

I will be in Bytown late November 1 and on November 2 visiting and caching with Cliffy. I'd still like to meet many of you, so email me at malak@pobox.com if you'd like to join us. icon_cool.gif

Perhaps an informal meet at Wally's for supper on Saturday, November 2?

So, for Go and Get Em 2!!!

Is it preferable to stick to traditional caches? Or is the Bintharnarian sort where you have to do homework first acceptable as well?

Binthair did one of his puzzle caches for the last Go and Get Em, so don't see a problem, just keep in mind the length of time it may take to do since the time will be limited.

Three points:

 

1. If you are hiding more than one cache and you have received a # from us, but have not hid your caches yet,please put the # in all of your caches to make it a little easier for the seekers.

 

2. The coordinates for the meeting location were taken from our map. We will go to the location this a.m. and ensure the coordinates are correct. We will also post a cell # so that if you are unsure of the meeting location you can call us.

 

3. We are currently at 31 psrticipants; with 15 or greater caches since some of you will be hiding more than one; therefore, this event will begin on Friday, November 15th at 6:00 p.m.

I went to the pub yesterday to get the coordinates as the original ones were from a map. The new coors are: N 45 25.412 and W 75 41.754. The parking coors for free parking one street down from the pub in an indoor parking garage are: N45 25.358 and W 41. 723.

Hey there: Always interested in what other geocachers are up to to promote and improve... really hope your event turns out to be successful and fun... would love to attend, but I will be in Ohio that weekend -- work but hope to bag a couple of caches as well.

 

Anyhow, best regards!

Thought I'd post it here just in case anyone is looking at this thread in 6 months time. It was a blast to meet everyone. Many free beers being bought all around (I'll have to pay more attention to the specifics that qualify one for that next time ). It's always great when a ton of new caches come online too!

 

The venue was real nice as well.

 

Looking forward to the next!

 

Cheers!
