How does this work? Do you remember the board game “Monopoly”? This is a modified geocaching version of this popular game.
On Friday night before the event, new caches will be published – a list will be bookmarked here. You will have all day Saturday to visit these coordinates/caches to find monopoly property. Each cache found will supply you with at least one property, utility, railroad, and/or other game card. It really doesn’t matter how many caches you find …there is pretty high rent on certain properties. However, the more caches found, the more chances you have to become the Cache-opoly champ!
Bring your list of landed-on properties to the event at 5:30pm to the Birthday Party Room in Rink 2 of the Nelson Center (the ice rink in Lincoln Park). We will then see who becomes the Caching Real Estate Mogul to win a prize! This park district facility is ADA accessible.
We will be supplying a few snacks (like chili con queso). Bring some of your favorite finger foods to share (since you will be driving around in your car before the event ...we didn’t want you to have to figure out how to bring a side dish, or other potluck item -- think chips, brownies, etc).
After the festivities are done, we can all go get pizza somewhere in the tradition of recent February CIGA Springfield events. There are some decent pizza parlors close by.
