Y-Knot? WWFM Event

WWFM III- The World Wide Flash Mob Caching Event

Saturday - May 10th,2008 @ 1:00 pm

The Basic Idea:

You're heard of MEGA-EVENTS? This is quite the opposite in a variety of ways.
  • This is a Flash Mob Event.
  • It will involve far less people.
  • It will last for only 15 minutes.
  • And the icon you get is different (vs. ).
Flash Mobs (What is a flashmob?) have gathered for other reasons, but this one is all about geocaching.

Y-Knot? come be part of this historic event?

The World Wide Flash Mob Event:

Dozens of events all around the world, coordinated to happen at the same time to bring together geocachers and introduce others (newbies) to the geocaching.
Saturday, May 10, 2008 will be the day hundreds, if not thousands, of geocachers will mob together, around the world.

This MICHIGAN flash mob event is one of many taking place around the world as part of the World Wide Flash Mob III. Come take part in this zany, 15 minute, geocaching event.

The Plan:

The event will begin precisely at 1:00 pm on Saturday May 10, 2008.

The start of the Event will be marked by the announcement of "GO GREEN" and "GO BLUE" (it pains me to say the latter but I will only because it is for GVSU)
and the opening of the AMMO CAN.

The event will be held at the posted coordinates.

This event is Rain or Shine - it is Michigan Afterall, so there really is no chance of predicting the weather more than 5 minutes ahead of time. There is some overhead shelter available if it inclement weather does occur.

Time will be kept by GPSr - Everyone's should be in sync from the satellites. An event card must be signed for this event to be logged online!

There will be a Prize Drawing at 1:11 PM 
(must be present to win)
There will be a Prize Drawing at 1:12 PM
(must be present to win)
There will be a Prize Drawing at 1:13 PM
(must be present to win)
There will be a Prize Drawing at 1:14 PM
(must be present to win)

There will be a group photo taken to preserve this event in time just prior to the end of the event.

The event officially ends at 1:15 PM on the dot.

At precisely 1:15 the event cards will be packed up and sealed away. The event area will be vacated without a trace!!!

Geocachers are free to do what they want. There are plenty of caches nearby (inluding a new one today) so go and enjoy the rest of the day

Theme: Wear either a GREEN orBLUE shirt/coat to the event.

Prizes: (Names to be drawn out of the ammo can you put your event card in)
  • FTF for the Event cache - Sunshine Gang
  • A couple of "ready-to-go" caches - Wayward Wanderers and Team Octo<></>
  • <>FTF Coordinates - for a cache placed to commemorate this Event - BeccaNMark</>
Additional Item of Interest:
There will be flyers available so that you can order a commemorative WWFM geocoin.
(I was unable to procure any to give away as prizes)

Note: Although participants are welcome to get together after the event, the event portion will be officially over at 1:15 PM.
