When: Tuesday (note: Tuesday) June the 14th, from 6pm 'til late.
Where: The Misty Moon, 77 The Broadway, Chesham, Buckinghamshire HP5 1BX. 01494 785 622 - Very close to the centre of Chesham. They do drinks of all types and have a full menu (Bowl of fries; £1.95)
What: A Bucks, Beds & Herts Border-ing on the Ridiculous Event (number 42, thus making Geocaching the answer to the ultimate question) but one with a twist! At this one, an icon of European caching will be resting his feet. That's the plan, anyway. There's also the option of joining him at the Chesham Tandoori (48 Broad Street, Chesham, Buckinghamshire HP5 3DX. 01494 782 669) for a slap-up curry.
This is the 42nd of an ongoing series of monthly, mid-week-ish regular events at various locations handy for natives of the three counties to talk caching, plan expeditions and decide who's organising the next one. There's a good selection of caches in the area - Including the good doctor's own Chiltern Hundreds series - to make more of a day of it.
Why: Because it's not every month you get the chance to meet a cacher with 20,000 finds... Also, Ali made me do it with threats of physical violence against my person.
Who: Cachers from far and wide, with a particular focus on those from Bucks, Beds or Herts. It's a kid-friendly pub with the option to bring your geodog too.
How: There are good public transport links to Chesham from Amersham (which also has a tube and train station. Chesham has its own of course) and there's lots of free parking (after 6pm) at N51 42.379 W000 36.814. You could also get a bus. Contact me if you'd like more help getting to the event.
Please: Let me know with your 'Will Attend' log if you intend to eat, and if so, how many people (you know what I mean!) and where- at the pub or the Tandoori. Thanks :)
Congratulations to Alan and Susan - LadySolly - who hit 20,000 on June the 2nd. Additional congratulations - they recently became grandparents for the first time too!
