||About the Event:
Summary : The Basic Idea: A "Flash Mob" Gathering of Geocachers.
Only 15 minutes long! You MUST be present and sign a log sheet DURING this time to claim the event. Please BYOP! (Bring your own pen)
The World Wide Flash Mob Event: Dozens of events all around the world, coordinated to happen at the same time to bring together geocachers and introduce others (newbies) to the geocaching. You're heard of MEGA-EVENTS? This is quite the opposite in a variety of ways. FLASH MOBS have gathered for other reasons. Come be part of this historic event!
This will be the 6th Edition!
The event will last EXACTLY 15 minutes, not one second longer.
The event will begin precisely at 18:00 on November 14, 2009. The event will be held at Praça do Rossio do Marquês do Pombal. You will need a pillow.
Imagine you are a muggle… You’re at Rossio and then, at the same time, everybody around you is engaging on a Pillow Fight!! And just walks with it! 15mn later, the place is empty! What happened here?
At exactly 17h55 you will aproach Ground Zero!!
At exactly 18:00 (as determined by the GPS clock) we will place a ammo box at the coordinates. At this point, all geocachers will converge, seeming to come out of "nowhere" and start a pillow fight.
Vsergio will hand out "log sheets". Participants will sign the log sheets (which will later become a log book), to qualify for attendance and drop them in a designated collection box. Bring a pen.
At precisely 18:10, we will take a group photo.
At precisely 18:15 the ammo box, and the log sheets will be packed up and sealed away. The event area will be vacated without a trace!!! Events that happen after 18:15:01 do not count as part of THIS event.
Only those participants whose names appear on the log sheets may log the event.

Tell your friends and help promote the event!
Note: Although participants are welcome to get together after the event, the event will officially be over at 18:15. 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!)
HTML Page structure borrowed last year from someone who borrowed it from another geocacher, who had borrowed it from someone else . . . but he can't remember who that was.
Thanks for the credits anyway. I also would like to thank Lopesco for all the text :)
