Geocache Description:


På svenska

Då är det dags igen för Sveriges äldsta och största årligt återkommande Geocachingevent - FUMBLE AFTER DARK 2012!
Årets event blir det tionde i ordningen och i år hålls det den 3 november i Hjällbo i Göteborg.
I år blir det tredje gången vi är Mega och har över 500 deltagare på Eventet. Geocachare, deras familjer och vänner från hela världen är välkomna att delta i denna unika upplevelse.

Eventet

Fumble After Dark är unikt på många sätt. Det är ett event där man kan träffa andra geocachare, få delta i intressanta föreläsningar och aktiviteter samt göra fynd och träffa tillverkare på vår mässa.
Dessutom så bjuder vi på några timmars fascinerande geocaching i novembernattens mörker. Strax efter skymning så släpps koordintar till ett stort antal cachar, en del traditionella som går att logga på geocaching.com efter eventet men också ett stort antal tillfälliga som bara är utlagda för kvällen. Bland dessa finns det många kluriga och roliga överraskningar, saker du inte brukar träffa på när du geocachar annars. Så ladda ficklamporna med färska batterier och besök oss.
Tyvärr kostar det en slant att arrangera event av den här storleken så därför har vi även i år en startavgift. Mer om hur du anmäler dig och betalar din startavgift kommer senare.

In English

Once again we are proud to present the annual Fumble After Dark geocaching Mega event. Sweden's largest and oldest annual geocaching event - FUMBLE AFTER DARK - will in 2012 be held on November the third. Geocachers, their families and their friends from all over the world are welcome to join and take part in this completely unique experience. Fumble After Dark, which will be celebrating its 10th anniversary and 3rd as Mega, is the world's largest night geocaching event. We think that this years event will be the largest and most extraordinary event ever.

The Event

Although the night caching part always will be the prime trademark of Fumble After Dark, it is first and foremost a gathering of multiple happenings, from about noon and until late afternoon.
A number of activities will be held; lectures, workshops and both indoor and outdoor activities suitable for everyone between small children to thrill- seeking adults.

At evening and nightfall, the concept that started this whole thing, the characteristics of the event will somewhat change. A vast number of geocaches of different terrain and difficulty rating are placed in the surroundings, most of them only available during the event.
The coordinates for the geocaches are handed out after dusk, and the hunt goes on until near midnight. As the geocaches are temporary, the level of creativity has virtually no limits. Expect to see stuff you would never come across otherwise. There will however still be time to mingle and meet new friends, talk to our sponsors and explore the surroundings.
If you are a bit cold and feel like staying indoors, we will have lots of activities for you as well.
There will be a mandatory fee for participating solely to cover all event costs.

FUMBLE AFTER DARK ist in vielerlei Hinsicht eizigartig. Es ist ein Event wo man andere Geocacher trifft, in interessante Vorlesungen und Aktivitäten teilnemen kann und auf unsere Messe Hersteller treffen und gute Eikäufe machen. Und dann kommt der Höhepunkt, einige Stunden Geocaching in der Novemberdunkelheit.
Kurz nach Einbruch der Dunkelheit werden die Koordinaten von ein grösseres Anzahl von Cachen frieigegeben, einige traditionelle die man auf Geocaching.com loggen kann und ein grösseres Anzahl von temporären die nur für den Abend ausgelegt sind. Unter diesen gibt es viele schlaue und amüsante Überraschungen die man normalerweise nicht bei Geocaching sieht.
So, willkommen nach FUMBLE AFTER DARK mit neue Batterien in die Taschenlampen.
Leider kostet es etwas ein Event in dieser Grössenordnung zu organisieren. Deswegen haben wir auch in diesem Jahr ein Startgeld. Weitere Information über Registrierung und Startgeldzahlung kommt später.
