On May 1, 2000, President Bill Clinton announced that the United States would stop the intentional degradation of the Global Positioning System, better known as selective availability. The next day at approximately midnight, twenty-four satellites around the globe processed their new orders, and instantly the accuracy of GPS technology improved tenfold. Tens of thousands of GPS receivers around the world had an instant upgrade and the road was paved for Geocaching. 10 years later, there are over a million active geocaches worldwide!
Romio’s Pizza & Pasta
4101 Airport Way South
Seattle, WA 98108-5218
May 1, 2010 7:00 PM
This event is part of a worldwide celebration held only on May 1 & 2. You can spend the day doing our favorite pastime, then gather for dinner or drinks, swap stories, and put faces to the names you see only in cache logs. At 8:00 we will cozy up for a group photo and distribute some door prizes.
Romio’s is opening up their restaurant exclusively for us that evening. Please post your “will attend” so they’ll be able to staff the place appropriately to serve us well. They assure me there will be plenty of available parking and can accommodate special dietary needs (such as gluten free pizza dough) if you notify them at least 1 week in advance.
UPDATE: This restaurant has a maximum capacity of 50 and it looks like we are going to completely fill the place. The restaurant management asks that everyone try to look at the menu as soon as you are seated as they want to give us good service and it will take a while for the kitchen to prepare meals for that many people. Thank you for making it easier for them to take good care of us!
