(and what makes it "Special")
|"Bowling Green Style - NWOGEO Meet & Eat SPECIAL!"
This event is "Special" because only twice a year we pre-empt our regular twice monthly Meet & Eats held in Findlay and Maumee to hold a Special M&E Event in Bowling Green.
(Please note that our regular M&E events will resume next month!)
It is also "Special" because it is located centrally between Findlay and Maumee.
Being held on the 2nd Wednesday of the month, also helps makes this event "Special" as it is centered by week and day of the week between the usual occurrence of our 1st Tuesday and 3rd Thursday M&E events.
What makes it MOST "Special" is that it gives us all a chance to get together from a much wider area of Northwest Ohio!
So come alone, bring a friend, bring the family, plan on dinner or just grab a coffee. it’s all casual. Stay all evening, stay an hour, stay 10 minutes, or just open the door and say "Hi". It’s up to you.
||New and experienced geocachers, and even muggles who just want to know more about geocaching are welcome, and whether you are from the NW Ohio area, or just visiting.
||We often we only know fellow cachers by their online presence, and from geocache log books! Here is a chance to put a face or faces to that geocaching name in person.
You are welcome to bring Travel Items and your special Signature Items to these events to show, log and swap.
With the free WiFi service, you can bring your laptop or other WiFi enabled device, to look up caches and logs, check out our local NWOGEO website, check out caching software, show caching pictures, and even log the Event itself. Occasionally we even look up caches to hunt after the event.
You are welcome to bring your caching and technology questions with you, and if any caching and computer gurus are in attendance, they may be able to offer advice. There are people in our group with knowledge about caching and mapping software, paperless caching, as well as insight into Geocaching.com itself, cache page HTML, programming, and wireless networking and more.
We usually try to set up an Event table to get your name tags, sign the log book, and trade travel items. Be sure to wear a name tag so that we know you are a geocacher, and what to call you!
For those who have never signed our log book before, be sure to peek inside the front cover for an extra little surprise!
If you have any questions, post a note here on this page and someone will happily try to answer.

Please post a note in the logs below if you plan on attending, so that we can give the restaurant an idea of how many people to expect. (Past events here, nearly took over the entire restaurant!)
While no one particular location will serve all cachers in NW Ohio perfectly,Bowling Green was chose as the best location centered between our regular Meet & Eat locations for this special event that meets our expectations to hold a good Meet & Eat.
Our goal is to have our M&E Events, held at a comfortable, handicap accessible, family friendly, open seating, brightly lit, low ambient noise and conveniently located restaurant with good, reasonably priced self-serve food, plus free Wireless Internet service (WiFi).
This allows us to come and go freely, order, pay, sit, and eat at our convenience, enjoy friendly conversation, show and tell, and mingle easily.
