Geocache Description:

A weekday evening event in Smithfield; the 4th to be held here.

The Event...

    If a reason is needed to hold another event in London, then I suppose the fact that my birthday is on the preceding day (18th March) will be good enough. I won't be placing any new caches as there have already been a few new ones placed in the area since the last event, however I suspect that the majority of you that attend will have already done most, if not all of the 113 caches that are currently active within 2 miles of the pub. So... there will be nothing to distract you from the simple pleasures of eating good food, drinking fine ale and mixing with a great bunch of folk to chat about Geocaching.... or anything else that takes your fancy. Those of you that have been to one of the previous events here will know that the craic was mighty. If it turns out to be only half as good as the three events that have preceded it, then it'll be an evening to remember.

The Venue...

    The venue for this event is a pub very close to Smithfield Meat Market. Aptly named "The Butcher's Hook & Cleaver", it's one of a chain of 'Ale & Pie' pubs owned by the Fullers Brewery and as such, a full range of their fine ales will be available. There's also a goodly selection of 'girly' drinks and if you really must... lager. Food will also be available from the bar until mid-evening.
The pub will probably be a bit busy early on as it's a popular place for local workers to stop off for a swift one (or two) before going home so you may have to fight your way to the bar. The staff, however, are used to crowds so you'll never have to wait for too long.

    An area on the ground floor has been reserved for us and will be available from 18:00 onwards on Thursday, 19th March, 2009. It's 'wheelchair friendly' with a loo on the ground floor. The previous London events have been well attended and good fun so come and enjoy the social side of Geocaching, particularly if you've never been to an event before. Everyone is welcome.


    The nearest tube station is Barbican but Farringdon, St Paul's, Moorgate and Chancery Lane are only a short walk away. City Thameslink is also close by. If you choose to come by car, there is an expensive underground carpark opposite the pub (sorry, don't know if it's open 24/7) and, if you can find a space, parking is permitted in some of the nearby roads.

Travel bugs and Geocoins....

    I cannot be responsible for travel bugs or coins left either physically or virtually at the event. You're more than welcome to 'virtually' drop bugs and coins prior to the event taking place but please don't just dump them onto a table when you arrive and forget about them. So many get left on cache pages after events and physically disappear into some travel bug black hole. If you can, make a note of who takes 'yours' and hopefully, all will subsequently go on to new caches.
