This CITO (Cache In, Trash Out) Event brought to you by:
North Carolina Geocachers Organization
NCGO STATE-WIDE CITO
Hickory, North Carolina
The North Carolina Geocachers Organization and NC Foothills Geocachers are proud to present The Third Annual Statewde CITO (Cache In, Trash Out) Event. Each year at this time geocachers from all over North Carolina celebrate Earth Day by cleaning our little portion of our global playground.
The City of Hickory has been very supportive of our geocaching activities so the NC Foothills Geocachers have adopted the parks of The City of Hickory. We have committed to clean a park four times a year. This is our way of showing appreciation for the use of these parks for geocaching.
The Geitner-Rotary Park has been selected for our first CITO event in 2009! Geitner Park is a large park with 1-1/2 miles of trails winding throught the beautiful woods along the Catawba River.
Geitner Park offers easy parking, boat docks, picnic facilities, gazebo, restrooms, fishing, and trails. Bicycles and leashed dogs are welcome.
WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND THIS CITO?
The City of Hickory Parks and Recreation department have been very supportive of our geocaching activities. The CITO's are a way of showing our appreciation of their support and to give back to the community. Geocachers also have a history of making our "geocaching playgrounds" better than it was when we arrived.
If you are new to geocaching, CITO events give you the opportunity to meet others in the geocaching community. There is no better way to find new geocaching friends and get some tips and tricks from the "old timers".
THE FOOD AIN'T BAD EITHER!
The NC Foothills Geocaches have a tradition of providing a meal for our CITO participants. As usual, we will have hotdogs. Condiments, basic "fixings", and drinks will be provided. Attendants usually bring side dishes or deserts.
WHAT YOU SHOULD BRING.
We ask that you bring a side dish or a desert for the CITO lunch. Don't forget to bring your GPS receiver! There are many geocaches listed on Groundspeak and other services. Print-outs of the parks geocaches will be available in case you need to program your GPSr on-the-spot.
