+Stuey Posted June 24, 2004 Share Posted June 24, 2004 I've just created and had approved a caching event based in Exeter, UK on the first Sunday in September. I've thought for some time about this, and this is what I have done so far: I approached all local cache setters asking them when they were available for an event, and to suggest a location. From the many responses I had, I chose a date, and the location (a family friendly pub). I asked them if they were able to create a cache within 15 miles to be released that day, so there would be many brand new caches available for just the event attendees. I will ask cache setters to bring printouts of their already approved caches which will be collected by event attendees (the caches are not to be made live until at least that evening by the UK reviewers). I created an event cache page explaining how it works, including hyperlinks to high detail and general maps of the area. I asked people to post a note to say they were coming, whether or not they were creating a cache, and suggested that they watch the event cache page for any new notes. The focus of the event is on cache hunting. I want this one to work well, and so far, we have 8 cachers who will create at least 10 new caches for the day, and with 30 caches already within 15 miles from Dartmoor, four river valleys, and the World Heritage Coast towards Sidmouth, it should be good for locals and visitors alike. So, what else do I need to do to make the event special? Any suggestions from people who have attended other events would be appreciated. Quote Link to comment
