Tonedog52 and myself, Wonder Boy, are assisting a group of
Marcus, Iowa town boosters to put on a geocache event for
Tonedog52 and I will be handling the geocaching part of the
event ourselves. We will be hiding caches, along with some
help from some other local cachers. We will distribute the new
cache information, and load GPSr. If you have a special/odd receiver
be sure to bring your cable. We will load using GSAK and Mapsource.
The GSAK files will be in a GPX format. We can also load them on
to your flash drive if you like. We expect to have 50 – 100 new
permanent caches for your pleasure and a number of temporary
caches around the town of Marcus. We will have an archived cache
number for you to log your temps on, as we did at our Welcome Spring
Event in May of 2009.
The local booster group will be handling the rest of the event.
The event will be held at the Marcus Fair Grounds locate in town.
There will a limited amount of camping at the Fairgrounds. The
Convenience store, Marcus Junction, on hiway 3 on the south side
of town can also accommodate a small number of larger 5th wheel
trailers. To reserve a campsite see below.
They will be handling the Saturday morning start of the event as well
as the evening meal.
Some misc. items to mention.
1. There will be a Saturday evening get together with door prizes to follow.
2. If you have questions you may contact me at Wonder Boy or Tonedog52
3. If we don’t have the answers we will direct you to someone who does.
4. We will post updates periodically so check back at least once/week.
We will start registration @ 7:00 am and start handing
out cache information. Clear your calendars for the weekend of
September 17 – 19. Hope to see you there.
