The first FLASH MOB to happen in Vancouver !
What is FLASH MOB you ask ?
A Flash Mob is a large group of people who gather at a location, perform some brief action, and then quickly disperse.
At 10:00 am exactLy until 10:15 am exactly as determined on the clock on your GPSr, Geocachers from all over will mysteriously appear and meet, talk, trade swag, exchange coins and bugs but ony for 15 minutes.
Pages will be passed around that will act as both door prize tickets and later be put together as a log book (thanks PGcachers for the great idea)
At preciously 10:15 the event is over!
Sequence of Events:
9:45-9:59 am: Arrive in the general area. Hang around looking like a muggle, enjoy the park and funky statues but most importantly STAY AWAY FROM GROUND ZERO.
10:00 am: A flag and a container will be placed at the coordinates, this signals the start of the event. Quickly go to the co ords, grab a log sheet. Complete the sheet and put it into the container.
Note: you must fill in a log sheet page to be able to log this event as "attended" so please make sure you do this. Pencils and log sheets will be provided.
10:05 am: Trade swag, Geocoins, Travel bugs.
If any muggles are curious about the event we will have a volunteer hand out fliers that explain geocaching.
There may be several muggles nearby who will wonder "What did I just see? What just happened?" (That's part of the fun!)
10:07 am: A group photo will be taken. Listen to the photographer for directions.
10:12 am Names will be drawn from the log sheet container and called out to win prizes ! We have a Flash Mob official coin donated from Coins and Pins, some great Geocaching stuff donated by Groundspeak and an awesome SWAG bag and other goodies donated by Worldcaching.com.
10:14 am: one of the Wild wiggly beanz will announce "1 minute to go". The log sheet container is sealed.
10:15:00 am: A wild wiggly beanz will call out, listen carefully..... “Thanks for coming… see you soon” and this signals the end of the event. Quicky leave the area in a disorganized manner.
10:15:01 Event is over, area is clear of all evidence that anything happened.....
That's it !
Don't be Early, Don't be Late !
This location is near where the Cache Blitz Awards Ceremony event will be held the next day.
Here is your chance to log TWO events in one weekend but remember to log the Flash Mob event you must arrive between 10:00 and 10:15 ONLY !
