Save the Date for Geofest Midwest
Plan to Attend GeoFest Midwest
September 25, 2010
Enjoy logging up to 30 new caches, meeting other geocachers from the region, take a travel bug, enjoy entertainment around the bonfire and more. Much like the game of Clue ® help determine “who done it." We have had great feedback the last two years and only challenge ourselves to do better.
We will start at 8 a.m. Saturday morning with registration at the Pebble Lake Picnic Shelter. We’ll provide coffee, juice, rolls and a laptop for downloading the coordinates from GSAK. This year no early departures - that's the biggest gripe we got. So if you come early to "get yourself organized" that's fine. But at 9 a.m. everyone can start the hunt. We have 27 new caches ready to be disclosed that morning. (We'll submit as many of them as permanent caches and hope to hear soon if approved). You will have until 4 p.m. to find as many as possible and to turn in your sheet of evidence. At 5 p.m. we’ll start Happy Hour (cache bar!) We will be selling tickets for supper in the a.m. More on those details to come.
PRIZES – will be awarded in many categories including first to finds, best costume, youngest/oldest, geocacher from farthest away, etc. AND of course the winner of the guessing game. Many businesses have donated prizes for Sat. night.
SWAG – lots of swag – especially for the kids this year. And we are using the HANDICACHING rating system to assist you with the level of difficulty for each cache.
TSHIRTS – will be for sale again. This year they are long-sleeved, black with silver writing on them. Tshirts cost $15 each and can be purchased that morning and at the awards supper (and learning from last year – we have ordered some in children’s sizes). BUT also a learning curve is that we have ordered WAY too many shirts in the past. So this year we will order fewer - that means shop early!
SUNDAY – like last year Sunday is a free-day. And with 1,513 caches within a 100 mile radius of Fergus Falls, we know most of you will want to cache your way home or log as many as possible before you leave. We'll have a list of local events to check out too.
What are we forgetting? Need a place to stay – our many hotels and the campground would love to have you visit. Check out the Convention & Visitors Bureau web site for more info www.visitfergusfalls.com.
Thanks for participating – see you soon!
