Geocache Description:

National Flashlight Day


When : Always December 21

Don't be left in the dark on National Flashlight Day. The basic requirement for this day, is a flashlight and good batteries. Flick the switch, and you can put anything into your spotlight.

Let's shed a little light on this special day. National Flashlight Day arrives on Winter Solstice, which is the shortest day...and longest night.... of the year. "Watt" that means, is that there's lots and lots of darkness. With all of those dark hours, and caches to be found, your flashlight is apt to get a good workout.

You never know when you will need a flashlight. National Flashlight Day is a good day to make sure you and your family know where the flashlights are. Test each flashlight, to be sure the batteries are good. When in doubt, replace the batteries with new ones. It is also a good idea to put a flashlight in your car.

Did You Know? The flashlight was invented in 1898 by Joshua Lionel Cowen. However, this wasn't his greatest invention. He also invented the Lionel train.

Social hours: 6:00pm to 10:00 pm

An unactivated KB1K geocoin will be awarded to the cacher
with the brightest handheld flashlight.

TBD by general consensus of attendees

Social activities available:

Cooler Crew Cachers feel strongly that winters are here to stay in Minnesota. We feel that the citizens of Saint Paul and neighboring communities should take advantage of this situation by participating in the winter activities that are available in our communities. Rather than hide from winter, people should go out and have fun in it. We encourage everyone to live by the
Cooler Crew Cachers credo:
