Geocache Description:


CITO IS NEATO!
Welcome to Kenora's first ever geocaching event!



DATE: Saturday, April 30 2011

TIME: 11:00AM -3:00 PM

LOCATION:  Garrow Beach Parking Lot, Kenora Ontario

COORDINATES:
N 49 47.204 / W 94 27.480


This is a rain or shine event; so dress accordingly.





EVENT DESRIPTION:

Geocachers and non-geocachers alike are invited to come out and help clean up Kenora. Come join us at our meeting site and contribute any amount of time that you can to cleaning up. The CITO activities will focus around two specific Zones in the Kenora area. After scattering to the many available parking locations, participants will remove trash from the zones, dropping the trash at designated location in those parking areas, and than returning to review successes at the meeting site.  Door prizes, participation prizes, and achievement prizes will be available to all who attend.



PLEASE BRING:

A full tummy
The late start time allows for a hearty breakfast. Most important.

Gloves

‘cheap’ plastic ones are available on site, but they are not very trash friendly

Water and Snacks
some water and snacks will be available to volunteers, but please pack more if you know you will want more.

 
A desire to geocache
The area of Kenora is loaded with many new caches. This event will also feature a ‘yet-unpublished’ event cache with some FTF/STF prizes.


YOU WILL BE PROVIDED WITH:

A satin ‘collectable’ nametag (limited quantity),

‘door prize’ raffle stub,

garbage bags, ‘pick up stick’, and plastic gloves.

Hand sanitizer, towels, water, and nutrients will be available at the meeting grounds.



EVENT TIMELINE:

10:30-11:00 - Meet & Greet 
Volunteer cachers will meet and mingle, awaiting other arrivals, trading geocoin codes, etc.. The meeting area will be outdoors. Please Dress Appropriately.  CITO themed Posters will mark the gathering area in the parking lot of Garrow Beach.  This is a time to get to know each other, and discuss plans for the day.

11:00-11:15 - Welcome Ceremonies
Participants will be given all required CITO tools, including bags, gloves, and a pick-up-stick. Hand sanitizer and paper towel will be available at the meeting area. Participants will be introduced to the days activities, Prizing plans etc.


11:15- 2:15 - CITO Action!

Our focus for this CITO event will be on two areas. Each of these patches of forest are in the residential areas of Kenora. Both 'zones' are within walking distance of our meeting place. Parking areas will also be available at many access points to the trials.


A number of marked trash 'drop off' locations will be setup up near a number of parking areas around the zones.

RECYCLING will be a key focus of this event. Participants will be asked to carry two bags, one for trash and one for metals and plastics. Participants could work in pairs to split the carrying load.

Each zone has different issues:

Zone A - The Rabbit Lake Trails Zone (see trail map here).
This zone has a number of caches in it, but don’t spend too much time hunting! We're here to CITO today! A high-pedestrian area, much trash can be found in the Garrow Beach area (parking) and along the Rabbit Lake Trails.


Zone B - "Water Tower Trails"
Not official trails, but a common place for pedestrian traffic, with a few caches to boot. Some areas in this zone are CITO jackpots! This area has a little rougher terrain. Some spots in this area are full of massive trash piles that could definitely be cleaned up. Not the ‘kid friendly’ zone.



2:15-2:30 - Pack it in, and regroup
Participants should be completed collecting trash, and have made their way back to the meeting place.


2:30-3:00 - Meet & Treat!

The event will culminate back at our original meeting location. Small snacks and drinks will be available to participants. The 'Door' and 'Participation Prizes' will be awarded at this time. Then, a special event cache, unlisted to the public (yet) will be available to participants. Inside, CITO themed FTF and STF prizes. The cache will be published for the general public to access after the day of the event. Once the event has been closed, participants are welcome to go about their marry way, seeking out the new event cache, or any of the other caches in the Kenora area.




PRIZES AVAILABLE

The event will feature a number of prizes, including a Door Prize, Participation Prize, and FTF and STF prizes on an Event Cache. Prizes include unactivated Geocoins, travels bugs, swag and more! Much Thanks (geechi meeguetch - ojibwe) goes to Landsharkz.ca and Worldcaching.com for their donations to this event.

 




PLEASE LOG IF YOU ARE COMING SO I MAY PLAN ACCORDINGLY. THANKS!
