The 8th Annual Caching Through The Snow Event will be held Sunday, December 11th and will begin at 12:00 (noon) at the Brewpub located at the above coordinates in Sparta, NJ. Please join us 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 hid nice new caches for you. Pre-event hikes will take place again this year as described below. Hot chocolate will be served. 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! The pre event hike will be in the morning. Meetup with others to join the fun! I recommend you head out by 8am if you want to grab all the caches before noon. You do not have to complete all the caches but we set up a nice loop for you. Or you can complete a few with ease. Hot chocolate will be served from 8am to 10am at the hot chocolate referenced cords. We should have enough parking just off of 23 before the event. Team up with others to leave room for others!
LAST YEARS FUN!
