Geocache Description:

Mark Your Calenders! It's that time again to get together for a little holiday celebration at Kroghs Brewpub in Sparta, NJ. Festivities start at 12:00 (noon). PLEASE NOTE THAT ATTENDANCE AT THE HOT CHOCOLATE DISPENSING STATION WILL COUNT FOR ATTENDANCE AT THIS EVENT. N 41° 00.750 W 074° 44.313

The Seventh Annual Caching Through The Snow Event will be held Sunday, December 5th and will begin at 12:00 (noon) at Kroghs Brewpub in Sparta, NJ for a bit of a holiday celebration and get together.

Although TRL has moved out west, NNJC will host one of the oldest geocaching caching events in the NorthEast.

For you geocoin nuts, please bring your coins for showing and swapping.

We will be up to ten new caches in the area to make it worth your while for the cachers coming from a distance. And will likely try to organize a group hike in advance of the event. Watch the Mid-Atlantic Forums on for more information. It seems that every other year Sparta gets hit by a major snowstorms around this time. Hopefully, once again, there will be a little snow so the event can live up to it's name.

The location for this event is a registered National Historic Landmark. In the spring of 1999, this small restaurant became a Brew Pub becoming the first state-of-the-art microbrewery, producing handcrafted beers sold on the premise, to the fine community of Sparta and the entire Sussex County region.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there!
