I can't improve on [url=http://www.geocaching.com/seek/log.aspx?LUID=706712f5-1a2a-4d15-8b20-72e548328f05]this[/url], and after looking over the cache page, and reading logs again, I'm trashed for the rest of the day.

You got me at Caribou, Tami and you just got me again now.

It's truly time to shut this one down. You guys are the best! Thank you ...

Geocache Description:


Hear Ye, Hear Ye, Hear Ye!!!!!
 
 
A One-Of-A-Kind get together!
 

As everyone surely knows by now, King Boreas is the World leader in the number of Geocaches placed.  By the time of this Event, he will have placed 2000 Geocaches. 

To honor that accomplishment, we will be "Crowning" the King on Saturday, April 25, 2009.

Plan on coming to join in the Medieval Festivities, be in the "King's Court" for his "Crowning", meet some NEW friends, and Thank the King for all he has done to create interest in Geocaching !

Anyone who has ever geocached
or wishes to learn how, is welcome to come!

  There are active caches in the Park.  There will be 17 NEW loggable caches placed for this event to keep everyone busy.  There also are caches available outside the Park.  King Boreas lives close, so there are many opportunities to find his caches if you haven't done so already.


 A specially designed GeoCoin is being produced for this event. 

The Geocaching.com Icon ---> 

 


Coin is 2" in diameter, 4mm thick, and comes in Gold colored finish.


There will be a "Cookie Tin" decorating contest, so start eating those cookies and decorating your entry.

We have scheduled some very special entertainment just for the kids.

This will be a major event in the area. 

 Come one, come all, from all over the US, Canada, or the World.  Post your "Will Attends" early and get travel arrangements made.  This is one you won't want to miss.
