Geocache Description:

Happy Beethoven's Birthday, everybody!

Beethoven is believed to have been born on December 16, 1770, a date that piano-playing Schroeder observes every year. This, the 25th in my Peanuts series of caches, is a tribute to Schroeder.

Schroeder is one of Peanut's original characters, having first appeared as a baby in May of 1951. Always one of Charlie Brown's best friends, Schroeder plays the catcher position on the baseball team and is the unfortunate subject of a life-long crush of Lucy's.

The above coordinates look like a great location, but all you'll find there these days is pretty scenery. So what to do in the meantime?

Schroeder would like to invite you to a special observance of Beethoven's birthday, December 16 at 7 PM. He has even gone to the trouble of printing out a schedule of events, which may help you in your process of deciding whether or not you want to attend. I've copied the details for you:
