res2100: Thank you once again to everyone, including the sponsors, volunteers and those of you who braved the weather to attend the event to help making it a great success. All the hard work and time put into this event was worth it to see the smiles on everyone’s faces and we hope everyone enjoyed their registration packages and prizes. Thank you for all of the wonderful comments.

I’ve put the final updates to the event cache page including a link to an article that the International Diabetes Federation did about our event.
Also updated the activities to include the winners and also the answers to such things as the GeoTrivia and Geocaching Necessities activities which I am sure you will find interesting. I’ve also posted the 10 winners of the grand prizes and also the 5 ways of logging Chester’s Mysterious Mysteries cache for those that were curious.

Also, if anyone still wants any of the official event coins, we still have a lot left.

If you haven’t done so already, don’t forget to log your Attended log on the cache page.

Time to archive the cache listing. We’ve already got several unique ideas for future events. If anyone wants to share any ideas or give us feedback about what your liked or what you think we should do differently or even what you would like to see at a future event, please don’t hesitate to contact any of us.

Thank you again,

Ralph (res2100) and the rest of the Greater Toronto GeoBASH 2008 organizers and volunteers

Greater Toronto GeoBASH 2008

hosted by
res2100 and northernpenguin

Last Updated: May 12

The Greater Toronto GeoBASH 2008 would like to welcome our official mascot, Chester.
Chester is a friendly chipmunk who likes to scurry around Glen Haffy Conservation Area with his friends. He likes to hide and find treasure chests. He's smart though, as he is able to find the treasure chests without using a GPS. You never know when or where you might bump into him.


Date: Saturday, May 3, 2008
Time: 10am to 7pm (Park closes at 8pm)
Location: Glen Haffy Conservation Area (Entrance off Airport Road)
Picnic Site: Ridgeview
Capacity: 800 People

This is a non-profit event. It is all about bringing geocachers together and having fun sharing in an activity that we all enjoy.

You have 15 minutes to hand the cache off to the next person. When handing the cache off to the next person, make sure they know what they need to do with it (i.e., sign name, record time, hand to next person within 15 minutes). If for whatever reason you are not able to hand it off to someone else, then bring it back to one of the event organizers and they will take care of seeing that someone else gets it. Whoever has the cache at 4pm should find res2100 and give it to him. You do not want to be the last one holding the cache at the end, but if it is you, don't worry. A winner will be selected in a pre-determined way.
Whoever had the container at 2:27pm was the winner.
