Geocache Description:

Let's all get together and celebrate that Geocaching began 10 years ago, May 3rd, 2000!

Event will be 11:00am to 4:00pm.

Cost= $2.00 per person required by The Eastern Iowa Observatory and Learning Center.

Everyone is invited no matter where you are from.

Weather permitting, we may get to do some solar viewing through the H-Alpha scopes!

This entire weekend commemorates things that happened to start geocoaching on its way to where it is today.

May 1st, 2000: The announcement was made that selective availability was being turned off
May 2nd, 2000: Selective availability was turned off
May 3rd, 2000: The first geocache (stash) was placed and found

The theme is LUAU please come dressed festively and accordingly, there will be Lei's and flower hair clips available at the event!

Everyone please bring a dish to share and table service for yourselves, I am providing Teriyaki pulled pork and buns for sandwiches.

This will be held inside of the observatory building which is temperature controlled and has modern facilities.

We are planning to get a group together to go to Sky Watcher Gorge cache and hopefully The Siege!, weather permitting, and the creek isn't too badly flooded.

There will be an anniversary commemorative geocoin available for $10 let me know if you are interested in one or more. One side will have the IGO colors (green, yellow, blue, black, and white), the other side will be red, white, and blue (colors of the US and Iowa flags). Most colors are transparent.
