Geocache Description:


Come and join in on a fun weekend out camping, caching and socializing. The event starts on Friday afternoon the 20 February 2009 and goes on through to Sunday afternoon the 22 February 2009.

The venue will be Glen Muir Holiday Resort and Caravan Park. Follow the listed co-ordinates to get there. Glen Muir is situated approximately 27 Kilometers North East of East London. Offering Self Catering Holiday Cottages and Caravan Park. Right on the beach in the East Coast Resorts area. The neat cottages are kept immaculate by dedicated staff, and are surrounded by lawns and shady trees, as are the caravan sites, recreation hall, and braai facilities.

Each team will be responsible for making there own booking. They only have 27 camping sites, so please book as soon as you know you’ll be attending. The cost per site per night is R130 max 4 people, each extra person per night over the 4 will costs R30.

For those cachers, for whom camping is not there cup of tea. They also offer self catering cottages ranging from R250 to R700 per night depending on what you want or need. Try get a cottage near the camping area as this is where all the action will be happening.

The event is composed of three different activities.

1. Stake your position. A predetermined GPS point will be marked out with in an area using my GPS. Each team then will receive a stake and using their own GPS to drive in the stake where they think the co-ordinates are. As GPS's are not that accurate, this will all just be for a bit of fun.

2. A day of caching. The Saturday will be used for teams to find some prehidden caches. I will be hiding these caches, which will all be published. I have had over 6 months of thought going into hiding some of these caches. Expect the unexpected. Two of the cache ideas I have been wanting to place almost as long as I have been caching. The idea would be for teams to enjoy the caching experience and not to run around to see how many FTF's they can grab. In this regards no standards will be dropped in the placement of the caches and you should expect the usual or is that unusual iNokia surprises. There will be a few very difficult ones. (Picture this) A group of 5 teams still trying to find the cache after 2 hours while some muggles look on. There will also be some easy ones, so no one goes home empty handed. I would encourage teams to bring along potentially new geocachers to join them on the fun. I will be placing a minimum of 8 caches and depending on me finding suitable good locations, more could be placed

3. Micro Dash. On arrival each team who is going to be around on the Sunday, will be issued with a micro cache with unique items inside. During the course of the weekend, they will hide this micro with in the camping area and take a GPS reading. All readings will be collated and on Sunday a copy of all the co-ordinates will be given to each team. The winning team will be the team that finds all the unique items first, provided that at least one team finds the micro they hide.

EDIT 08 Feb 2009
There's good news and there's bad news. The good news is that I have placed 11 caches so far and with a possible 8 more to be placed. The bad news is that you'll get 1 hour less sleep as I have decided to bring forward the starting time on Saturday by an hour to allow for more caching. The new times are.
08:30 – Collect caching info booklet and briefing.
09:00 – Teams head out for a day of relaxed caching and fun.
Only two weeks to go. Looking forward to seeing you all there.


EDIT 18 Feb 2009
All the caches are now placed and ready to be found, 17 new caches in total.
Only two days to go. Hope you have all made your bookings and ready to go.
