Geocaching Block Party: August 20, 2011

The Geocaching Block Party is just over two weeks away! The prizes have arrived at HQ, the t-shirts are ordered and the weather’s going to be great (if we have anything to say about it). If you are joining us for the party, you can find a map and a schedule of the day’s activities on the cache page.

We recommend that those participating in the Geocaching Adventure Courses bring their GPS device and its corresponding download cable so that we can load course coordinates onto your device. We will have a few cables on hand, but it is safest to bring your own just in case we don’t have the type that you need.

We also want to see your most creative cache containers! Have you turned a bike into a cache container or created a cache that can only be opened by a team of geocachers singing “Happy Birthday?” People will be showcasing their best cache containers in the meet-up lounge from 1:30-2 pm. If your cache has already been placed in the wild, please come by the lounge to talk about it. Hopefully you will inspire other geocachers with your creativity! If you have a collection of Trackables, bring those to the party as well. Trackables will be shared in the meet-up lounge from 12-1 pm.

Attendees at the Block Party will receive a special icon, which is now up on the Event Cache page. If you are not able to make it this year, we encourage you to find a geocaching event in your area so that you can celebrate the first International Geocaching Day with your fellow geocachers! You will have the chance to obtain the Block Party icon again on August 18, 2012 – the second International Geocaching Day.
