The Spring Hill Picnic Shelter is in one of the nicest areas in Kensington Metro Park. It is hilly and has a nice forest around it. There is a creek running nearby too. Neat! There are nice hiking trails right from the shelter.
Many new caches will be placed in the park for this event. Rattrak, Brummelbear , and TreePlanter will have some nice, good hides to have some fun with. Many will be posted just new, at the day of the event. Many FTF will be handed out! Many will have First To Find coins in them for prizes too! Wear long pants, some thorns in the area of caches.
We will supply the hotdogs, cheeseburgers with all the fixings, and bratts ,plates and more. Please bring a dish to pass for the group and drinks for your team. Please post the number of people coming for your team, so we can figure the meat purchase. Also,bring your own beverage and chair. There are quite a few picnic tables around but it is always nice to have a seat to sit on.
More information will be coming in the weeks ahead.

There is a volleyball area right at the shelter. Bring all the kids and it will be fun! Also, I will bring some horseshoe sets. Bring some horeshoes if you have them too. We will have a tournament with the top three winners receiving geocoins. Bring your coins and travel bugs to trade! Also, I would like to have a mini silent auction for some neat items.
There will be a coin issued for this event to help with the food, shelter ($125.00), and supply costs. Coin cost will be $9.00 at the event and it will be trackable and have an Icon. Also, it will have the "EV" prefix. We hope to make a donation to the SE MiGO too.
Kensington Park has a $4.00 Daily entry permit, or a $20.00 Annual or a Senior pass for $12.00. It is a large, nice park!
Mark the date down and come and have some FUN! If you have never gone to a Geocaching Event, this is one to start off with. This will be another friendly geoevent for sure!
