Geocache Description:

Remember if you find the cache make every effort to re-eye it so others may have something to hunt for. Remember : "If you hide it, they will come !" Parking available across the street on Glenn Ave. at the Hill Crest Center. Cache container is a camo bottle cap and please make every effort to replace the cache in its hiddie, it is not laying on the ground :)

No certain etymology for the golf word “Fore!” has ever been agreed. The Shorter Oxford Dictionary records its first use in 1878 as a warning cry to people in front of a golf stroke and, like most people, believes it is an abbreviation of the word ‘before’. There is an earlier reference in 1857 in a glossary of golfing terms. Its origin appears to be bound up with that of the word Caddie.

Before!” (“Beware Before!”) was foreshortened to “Fore!” (rather than
“Ware!”) and, secondly, it must have been sufficiently well known to be used by golfers.
