After attending a few WWFMs (World Wide Flash Mobs) it's about time all those Wollongong locals and others from further afield meet for a 'flash'.
For this event and since the footy season is now over please come dressed in your team colours (be it NRL, AFL, Rugby Union or Football). There may even be a prize for best dressed!
What's it all about? A "Flash Mob" is a gathering of Geocachers which is only 15 minutes long! You MUST be present and sign a log sheet DURING this time to claim the event. Our event will coincide with dozens of events all around the world, coordinated to happen at the same time to bring together geocachers and introduce others to geocaching.
The event will last EXACTLY 15 minutes, not one second longer. The event will begin precisely at 10:00am on November 14, 2009. The event will be held at Wollongong's lighthouse (the newer one).
The Plan: At exactly 10:00am (as determined by the GPS clock) all geocachers will converge, seeming to come out of "nowhere". Before that time everyone should be looking inconspicuous and not be hanging around the listed co-ordinates.
One volunteer will hand out "log sheets" and participants will sign the log sheets (which will later become a log book) and drop them in a designated collection bucket.
At a designated time, we will take a group photo and at precisely 10:15 the bucket, and the log sheets will be packed up and sealed away. The event area will be vacated without a trace!!! Events that happen after 10:15:01 do not count as part of THIS event. Only those participants whose names appear on the log sheets may log the event.
Note: Although participants are welcome to get together after the event, the event will officially be over at 10:15. Afterwards, at the meeting, participants may chat, meet, eat and plan for a day of caching!!! I'm sure there will be several muggles nearby who will wonder "What did I just see? What just happened?" (That's part of the fun!)
Further Note: You can drop off travellers into the event but just remember that it is only short and we'll need to be quick to redistribute them!
