Penfolio: Thanks once again to everyone who came along. Depite the weather, you made it an enjoyable and memorable event.

It's now a month to the day since that wet afternoon on which we crammed under the Team Clova gazebo. That must mean that it' now time to archive this cache and, to look towards next years Mega event in Wales.

See you all next year.

Geocache Description:

Yorkshire Day, Away

Sunday 1st August 2010 - 5:00pm onwards

The posted co-ordinates will lead you to Gallowhill Caravan and Camping Site, Kinross.

Once you have parked-up, take a look around and, head towards the Yorkshire Flag (a white rose on a pale blue background). There may be more than one Yorkshire flag being flown so, head for the one that's paired with a Union Jack Windsock.

 Head in this direction

What better way to recover from the madness and mayhem of the Mega Scotland event, than to join the Yorkshire caching contingent (well, those that haven't already fled back across the border) for a few beers, some jolly banter and, a bite to eat. There'll also be an opportunity to get your hands on one of the few remaining Yorkshire Day 2009 geocoins (please make note in your log if you'd like to reserve a coin).

Bring your own drinks and, anything that you'd like to throw on the barbeque (weather permitting).

Yorkshire Day

August 1st holds a special place in Yorkshire's history for, on this day in 1759, soldiers from Yorkshire regiments who had fought in the battle of Minden, in Germany, picked white roses from bushes near to the battlefields as a tribute to their fallen comrades. Since that time the white rose has become the symbol of Yorkshire and is proudly worn by Yorkshiremen and women on Yorkshire Day. 

It is also a celebration of Lammas a harvest festival when the first bread was made from the new corn.

Yorkshire Day was revived in 1975 by the Yorkshire Ridings Society.



You don't have to be born in Yorkshire to have pride in or be regarded as "True Yorkshire", since part of the Yorkshire declaration read throughout the County on 1st August states; "all persons born therein, or resident therein, and loyal to the Ridings are Yorkshire men and women". 

The Ridings of Yorkshire are over 1100 years old, being first recorded in AD876.
