Calling all geocachers far and near to the 10th annual Kansas City area picnic. In the past, we have had great attendance and hope we will again this year. Please put this cache page on your watch list. We are getting things organized and as time approaches there will be more information.
with your fellow geocachers at our 10th annual picnic. Let's make it a festive event with fun, great food and fellowship.
We have reserved shelter 10 which is located on the south side of the park to the east of the RC flying field. The parking in the immediate shelter area is somewhat limited, but there is more parking to the north and to the east of the shelter. The shelter can seat 170. There is plenty level, shady area around the shelter so bring your lawn chairs and make yourselves comfortable. Again, if you have tables to share for the food line, that would be appreciated. Playground and restrooms are nearby. Rules and regulations of the park system can be found here.
Our choice of meat on the menu this year is
bar-b-cued pulled pork from Fritz's Meat Market on State Line Road fried chicken like last year. As in the past, bring your favorite picnic dish to share. Don't forget the drinks, water and ice. Plates, cups and utensils will be provided..
We can't have a CELEBRATION without an anniversary cake and ice cream to top off our picnic meal. Somehow that sounds soooo good to close out our picnic.
If you feel you would like to donate towards the food or supplies please contact Carlin at email@example.com. Some of you would like to hold events but don't have the time so maybe this way you can feel involved in your caching community. The more monies in our account the more fun we can have. A donation jar will also be at the registration table when you sign in.
Shawnee Mission park has a large number of caches within it's boundries and there are more than 100 caches within 2 miles of the picnic site. There should be plenty of caches available for all those coming to the area for the picnic.

We have some creative caching minds out there. If you have some games or activity that would add to our celebration please feel free to share.
Please post a Will Attend note. You can optionally note what you are bringing. For all those new to our caching community, please state your caching name and first names of those in your party so we can make up name tags. Also, that gives us a heads up to how much meat to order.
We're ready to celebrate, are you? See you all in Shawnee Mission Park on August 28th.
