Geocache Description:

TOGGA GEO-LYMPICS

A Decade of Geocaching!

May 1st 2010

1pm-4pm


Be part of this world wide multi-celebration to help mark this historical occasion

Geocaching events are being planned world wide to celebrate the 10th anniversary of geocaching, Locally TOGGA is dedicated to bringing you an event that you will not soon forget and one that you don't want to miss!

Make plans now to attend and join the fun!

On May 1, 2000 the announcement that Selective Availability would be switched off was made.

On May 2, 2000, at approximately midnight, eastern savings time Selective Availability was switched off.

On May 3, 2000 Dave Ulmer initiated the "Great American GPS Stash Hunt" by hiding a black bucket with items inside including videos, books, software, and a slingshot as well as a logbook and pencil. He then posted the coordinates in an internet GPS users' group.

Within three days, two different people read about his stash on the Internet, used their own GPS receivers to find the container, and shared their experiences online.

And with these humble beginnings our sport was born!!
