Over the last few years, many of us out west
have enjoyed the down home hospitality of our friends out east. In
2008 we hope to return this hospitality. The River City Geocaching & Dining
Society (RCGDS) and the Northstate Unusual
Treasure Seekers (NUTS) are proud to welcome all our friends,
old and new, to enjoy the beauty and caches of Northern California
on Memorial Day Weekend, May 24, 2008.
Wheatland, California is a suburb of Sacramento
and is the setting for GeoWoodstock VI. It is nestled
in the heart of the Northern Sacramento Valley, between the Sierra
Nevada Mountains and the coastal range. You’ll enjoy mild and warm
weather during the day with clear balmy evenings. Bring your
sunscreen - it can get hot, but it’s a dry heat!
GeoWoodstock is an annual get-together for
geocachers from all over the world. In five short years
GeoWoodstock has become the world's largest geocaching-related
event. It is a relaxed, friendly, and free gathering.
Typical activities at past GeoWoodstock events have included
meeting people, prize giveaways, geocoin trading, travel bug swaps,
and of course, caching like crazy. There have been large and small
cache runs, and records have been made for the most caches found in
a 24-hour period.
In 2008, GeoWoodstock is going to be all that and
much more. GeoWoodstock VI will take
place on a farm, echoing the setting of a Woodstock of
another era. Come and hang out, find caches, take a train or hay
ride, climb a tree house, slide down a couple of giant slides, go
panning for marbles, or play with the animals in the petting zoo.
This event will be very family-friendly! In addition, there will be
many organized cache runs to fit every style. We will have cache
runs catering to the wishes of power cachers, families with small
kids, and handicapped cachers. There will be runs featuring large
caches for trading, historical caches, puzzle caches and seriously
challenging caches. There will even be tours for non-caching
Northern California is rich in history, caches and
culture. Like the 49’ers who came seeking treasure 150 years ago,
we invite you to come seek some of the 21st century treasure hidden
throughout the area. Start making plans to be here. In doing so,
note that San Francisco, the Napa Valley,
Lake Tahoe and Yosemite are all within a few hours drive. For
the adventurous with some extra time, it would be fun to fly into
San Francisco airport, spend a day in that city, then drive to
the Sacramento area for GeoWoodstock. After the event, drive to
Lake Tahoe or Yosemite and spend a day there before flying
Come on out to
Northern California for GeoWoodstock VI where it’s all about
the numbers – the numbers of friends you make.
