northernpenguin: Well, it's been 6 weeks now so it's time to archive the event listing.

A huge thank you goes out to everyone who attended and those that helped out. The event worked out about as well as I could ever hope it would and we're already talking about BFL 6 planning. Hope to see you all again next October!

I do note there are a lot of travel bugs checked into the event. Those of you who picked up travel bugs please be sure you retrieve them from the event listing so their owner's don't fret.

Geocache Description:

The fifth annual night caching event in North Halton

BFL 5 Logo

Welcome back to another Boot Camp!
The Keepers of the Order of the BFL have returned for our fifth annual night caching event, held in North Halton.

This year, we are holding the event on Saturday, October 30.
That's right, the day before Halloween - traditionally known as "Devil's Night".

We have an evening full of mischief planned, and we're sure you'll enjoy it.

About the Keepers of the Order of the BFL

The Keepers of the Order of the BFL, or "BFL Crew", are a group of geocachers who head out geocaching every Friday night - year round. We specialize in caching after dark, and we don't let the longer nights of winter slow down our caching adventures one bit. As winter gets near, we get together and host our annual night caching event - usually timed around the end of Daylight Savings Time.

About the Event

Join us for an evening of mayhem as the BFL Crew prepares another round of fun after the sun goes down. We are following our usual format for the evening:

There will be a gathering at a local pub between 7:00 and 9:00, where we can share stories and get ready for the evening ahead. The exact pub is still being worked out, but please indicate if you are interested in joining us at the pub in your "will-attend" log. The pub will be listed as a "child waypoint" on the listing.

After the launch kits are handed out at the pub, the BFL Crew will move to the Command Centre - which is at the posted co-ordinates for this event cache listing. We will have people here throughout the night and we plan to have hot chocolate to serve up. This is a location where you will be able to stop and chat, hang out, get help for the event caches or drop in. The event logbook will be located here, and this is where your "smiley" is earned.

During the weeks leading up to the event, the BFL Crew will be setting up various creative night themed caches. These will be available for you to visit, starting on the event night. This is an excellent opportunity to introduce yourself to night caching if you have not cached after dark before; hook up with a group at the pub (or command centre) and head out into the dark. Group caching at night is far less intimidating than caching solo at night.

Please do not go to the "Command Centre" before 9:30PM, to allow the BFL Crew to setup the "Command Centre". The event officially ends at 4:00 AM, the end of the Devil's Hour.

Where is the event?

The event takes place in two primary locations:

  • Initially the group meets at a pub in Milton
  • After the pub, the BFL Crew moves to the Command Centre at the Hilton-Britton Crown Forest Complex northwest of Milton.

What should I bring?

First and foremost: Be prepared for the weather. We have had nice calm, cool, clear nights for the event. We've also had major winter storms with sleet, freezing rain and tree-toppling winds. You must dress warm enough for an October night and YOU are responsible for choosing what conditions you are comfortable caching in.

  • Bring a flashlight, and extra batteries. An LED headlamp is recommended, and a BFL is a good second light
  • Bring your GPS
  • A good pen or two
  • If you have an FRS Radio, please bring it, and set to Channel 2
  • If you have a HAM Radio, we will monitor VE3OD, since VE3ADT is down, and Simplex 146.520
  • Bring your cellular phone. Note: CDMA (older Bell/Telus) networks have spotty coverage at the command centre. GSM/HSPA (Rogers, Telus/Bell "new" network) fares much better here.

Where do I get a Launch Kit? GPX File?

The BFL Boot Camp V caches follow our annual tradition.

With the exception of the Wherigo file, none of the cache details are revealed before the end of the pub get together.
At Mexicali Rosa's, around 8:45-9:00 we will hand out some of the printed launch kits to attendees. The other location to get your launch kit with the cache information is at the Command Centre - after 9:30pm (posted co-ordinates for this event cache). There will be no launch kits at the other pub(s) organized by the attendees. Please do not go to the command centre before 9:30, so we can get the organizer's cars in there and get setup.

We will not be offering a GPX file for the event caches.

The caches should be published shortly after the pub ends, so those of you bringing mobile devices (iPhone, Internet key) should be able to access the cache information via normal methods - you'll just have to wait until these caches are published.

The launch kit will also be available in PDF form at http://torontogeocaching.com/bfl5/launchkit.pdf starting at 9:00pm on Saturday
We are releasing 10 geocaches (including the bonus/final) for the event. Time to complete ranges from 30 to 90 minutes per geocache.

Wherigo Download Link

There is a Wherigo cartridge associated with one of the event caches. Before heading out, you should add it to your Wherigo capable GPS. Wherigo can be played on Garmin Colorado, Oregon units and some smartphones - PocketPC/Windows Mobile (Official Player), Android (WhereYouGo), Blackberry/J2ME (OpenWiG) and iPhone (PiGo)

The cartridge for "Pirate's End" can be downloaded here: http://tinyurl.com/bfl5wherigo or here
Note: the Wherigo cartridge is optional. There is an alternative puzzle method available for cachers who can not run Wherigo cartridges.


Remember, hunting the event caches is optional (but fun!).
To log an "attended" for this event, you must sign the logbook at the command center between 9:30PM and 4:00AM

Weather Info

You should check at least one of the links below for planning your outing. We recommend a layered approach to dressing for the event.
As of Oct 28, we are expecting some rain but it shouldn't be a lot of water. 2-4mm is not very much. It looks like it will be a fairly chilly evening.
