K8'n'Co.: Time to pack this one away. I hope someone has the Bug Geocoin and logs it soon as it wasn't amongst the bugs and coins left after the event.

Geocache Description:

Geocaching Scavenger Hunt and Picnic


K8 has found a great place for a picnic but has forgotten where. Fortunately, being a good little Gretel, she marked her way with a series of objects, observations and waypoints.

To find the picnic spot, start at the above co-ords and follow the waypoints along this Northwest cycle/footpath (approx 12 klms). Each waypoint is near street access for those preferring to use the Geo-vehicle.

At each waypoint you will be given the opportunity to earn points by either finding an object, making an observation or performing a task. You will not be required to do anything obscene, illegal or dangerous.

This is not a speed race, but a test of your observation, intuition and initiative, so it won’t matter if you arrive at a waypoint at the same time as other cachers.

The co-ords to the first waypoint will be placed at the above co-ords at 8.30am and all scavenger items and observations must be lodged with K8’n’Co, at the picnic site by 12.30pm, so there is plenty of time to stagger starts and complete the course, even by foot.

For those who haven’t already done them, there are a heap of caches along the way.

Please note: points for an object will only be awarded once (ie the waypoint may say: “K8 loves to wear a flower in her hair. Bring her a yellow flower and she will reward you with 5 points”.  Bring two or more flowers and you will still only get 5 points).

Please consider other cachers and only take 1 item where required and leave Waypoints as you find them.

You will also need to carry pen and paper.

The winner will be the cacher (or team) acquiring the most points.

The prize will be the co-ords to a celebratory cache, hidden in the area and a 15 minute head start, before the co-ords are released to everyone else.

For those not wishing to do the scavenger hunt, but would still like to attend the picnic, the picnic site co-ords are encrypted below.

The picnic area has a great playground, bbqs, picnic shelters and toilets, but please bring extra chairs if possible and your picnic hamper and bevies of course.

PS: Don’t forget to bring any Bugs, Coins or other for exchange.
