Mark your calendars!
Celebrating the 11's: 11/11/11, and 11 Years of Geocaching
Friday 11 November (Veterans Day, NJ Teachers Convention)
Special Limited Edition New Jersey 11-11-11 Geocoin available for sale at the event.
There's an Evening Event (GC343CF) if you can't make the morning event
After the event, join us in some postprandial geocaching in the area, or stay for bowling, pool, or arcade games.
When posting your "will attend," please note how many people will be attending under your caching name so we can arrange for sufficient food for everyone!
The Eleventh Year, Eleventh Month, Eleventh Day, Eleventh Hour, Eleventh Minute, and Eleventh Second mission began in 2005 when the FlyinV's decided to hold an event called 05-05-05 @ 05:05:05 to determine which cachers were so crazed and hungry for geocaching that they would get together that early in the morning. Almost 50 fellow cachers attended! The following year, 06-06-06 @ 06:06:06 was just as much fun, with over 60 people attending that event. In 2007, about 150 cachers attended 07-07-07 @ 07:07:07. And in 2008, on a summer Friday, almost 88 folks attended the 08-08-08 @ 08:08:08. Close to 80 attended the 09-09-09 @ 09:09:09 event, and almost 200 attended the 10-10-10 @ 10:10:10 event … therefore, the “All About the Numbers” event series lives on!
We are inviting all of you to join us once again for a geocacher greet, meet, and eat! And, if it's all about the Elevens this year, then it has to take place at 11:11:11 in the morning!! This year, the event is on a Friday, but it's Veterans Day, and the New Jersey kids will be off from school (Teachers Convention), so hopefully you'll all be able to join what has become one of South Jersey's largest events of the year!
Donations for door prizes welcomed!
We welcome all donations suitable for doorprizes. Here's you opportunity to share a geocoin, an extra ammo can, bag of swag, certificates, etc. We'll be drawing for prizes shortly after noon to allow those who have to get back to work the chance to win.
Most Creative Geocache Container Contest
Just like the past years, we are on the lookout for creative cache containers and creative hide ideas. Last year we had numerous inventive and imaginative containers at our event and we are eager to see what this year will bring! In that vein, a contest ensues ... Put your noggin to work and get creative. Bring your coolest geocache container. The only rule is this has to be a useable geocache container, and we should all expect to see it placed soon after the event! The winner will be decided by YOUR VOTES shortly after 11:11:11. Prizes will be awarded for First, Second, and Third place finishers … you just have to play to win!
Travel Bug Exchange
“Bug Exchanges” are always welcome. If you are bringing travel bugs to trade, please have their Bug Page printed and included, so their goal will not be a mystery.
If you plan on attending, please include in your posting how many will be in your group so we can let the restaurant know how many crazy cachers to expect. Be sure to watch this page for updates, changes, and/or announcements.
Add the last 2 digits of the year you were born plus the age you will be this year. Now find another cacher with this same number.
