+Tim & June Posted April 15, 2003 Share Posted April 15, 2003 Because Paul Blitz's thread got hijacked, I thought it would be best to start a new one. Firstly, apologies to Paul, there really was no intention to conflict with your dates, it's a case of HCC having their resources available. The date has finally been settled as Saturday 19th July and HCC have granted use of the barbecue and shelter for the event. There are loos, water and electricity at the site and the shelter will hold loads of people (I guess at least 100, more if you cosy up real close ) We will need volunteers for the day to help explain to Geomuggles about caching and maybe help them find a cache or two, which have been planted specially for the day. HCC are eager to educate people about the countryside and see caching as a legitimate use. This is an opportunity for us to show and explain to land owners that caching is non destructive and that we use the countryside responsibly. In return for our help HCC have given us use of the shelter, generator etc. We are also hoping to get Garmin or Magellan or similar to come along, maybe they would put up a prize ? I guess the shelter will be available most of the day so if anybody needs a break... but the private cachers only event will be in the evening. As we will have electricity maybe we can organise some music. A couple of cachers have expressed a desire to camp overnight locally. It might be possible to get HCC to allow an overnight stop near the shelter, otherwise there are a couple of campsites locally. Obviously we will need to get some idea of the number who wish to : 1) Attend 2) Help out 3) Camp overnight Could this be the UK's biggest ever bash ?
