Guess what, it's INDOORS. No need to worry about the heat that is headed our way, or the rain, etc.

EVERYONE WELCOME!

Picnic Updates!
 

Hello all fellow geocachers! Our annual geo-picnic and pre-picnic breakfast is almost upon us and in an effort to aid planning, we are asking everyone who plans to attend to post a will attend log on each event with the number of people attending, to also indicate what item from the following list they would be willing to bring and if you have any donations for door prizes to list that as well.

Also all donations (prizes, cash for supplies, etc) will be accepted after the Flash Mob (GC3B3C7), at the pizza meeting (GC3N21H), at the pre-picnic breakfast event (GC3MMR8) and at the Picnic event (GC3KW78).


A huge THANK YOU to everyone who has donated, helped, volunteered etc so far.

We have received enough to now pay for the shelter, but will still accept donations for other incidentals, (tickets, door prizes, etc)!

 If anyone has any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me – Lauri Anderson geoname wolfy1970  or Charlie  geoname 4America.

  Geocaching Buddy - GCBuddy is proud to be the first 3th party iPhone app "Powered by Geocaching Live"

The ultimate tool for the serious geocacher when solving multi-caches. This buddy app will remember every clue found and will calculate any derived clue or new waypoint for you. Waypoints can be formula's or projections. Also the final cache formula will be evaluated the moment all clues are found and entered. It is also able to record you parking spot so you'll be able to return to your car after finding the cache.

Integrated navigating from waypoint to waypoint. Calculated new waypoints can also be shown on the Map (when internet is available). But you can also use a separate GPSr by manually entering the calculated result in such a device.

SEE BEFORE YOU BUY: To get an idea of the functionality, have a look at the demo screencast ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vg3NgggT4E  ) or the manual at the support website www.gcbuddy.com


    GCTools – The geocaching tool collection on the iPhone!    http://www.onedollarapp.com/gctools/

Here you find the tools to get your next multi and mystery caches done easily. GCTools provides tools to calculate coordinates, de- and encode messages, convert units and a huge number of data tables
 


iGeoPad and iGeoCacher

Native OS version of the popular iGeoCacher web application for paperless GeoCaching. Cache information from several popular data formats is now stored directly in the local SQLite database making true "off-line" paperless geocaching a reality for the iPhone. This also enfrachises the iPod Touch users as they can now view geocache information off line. Users of the new 3G iPhone will also enjoy seamless integration of cache information with the on-board GPS.

 GEOCACHING 101


 
 

NEWBIES WELCOME

 

We are  hosting a "Geocaching-101" session, dedicated to introducing people to a new outdoor activity called GEOCACHING.

Geocaching (Jee-oh-Cash-ing) is part of a worldwide outdoor game for GPS users. You get the opportunity to go walking, hiking, biking, boating, touring, etc., to hunt down and reach certain GPS coordinates. At the GPS location, you find something that was hidden there to document that you are one of the many people who have visited the GPS location. When you go after a geocache, you end up seeing amazing places that people generally never see in their lives.

The group will be gathering to learn how to use a hand-held GPS receiver, then go on an adventure to find hidden treasure, called "geocaches". If you own a GPS receiver, bring it (preferred, but not required) along with some fresh batteries. As part of the session, we will be venturing out to the countryside looking for local-area published geocaches.

To help with the planning please log your intentions to come.

To let the group know that you plan on attending, log in soon and post a "will attend" log by going to the box at the top-right corner of this page and click on " Log your visit" at the top of the list in the box. In the next screen, click on the text that reads
"- Select Type of Log -" and choose "Will Attend". Add a comment saying that you're coming, and click on the Submit Log Entry button at the bottom of the page.

AFTER the event, you can repeat the logging process, except you will choose "Attended" instead of "Will Attend".

 

EXPERIENCED CACHERS

 

Bring your Newbies (prefered, but not required). You know you have the greatest geo-stories. You are invited to help with this event. The more GPS receivers the better. We're counting on the general geocaching public to come and share your geo-guidance as part of the experienced geocaching team. After pizza and geo-intros, we'll be venturing outside to practice using a GPS receiver while on the hunt for a few local published geocaches.

In the event of "light" rain, bring an umbrella. We may go outside anyway.

Help would be most appreciated with any of the following.

  • Bring a newbie.
  • Bring your GPS receiver.
  • Bring travel bugs/geocoins for trading/discovering.
  • Bring copies of the geocaching brochure [PDF]
    (black-and-white, print-from-home version).
  • Bring your best stories.
 

ANY QUESTIONS?

 

These are some of the questions common for those who are just starting to get familiar with geocaching. Perhaps your question is one of these.

 

 

REMEMBER:

  • Make the fair trade.
  • Log your visit.
  • Leave the site better than you found it.
  • Protect the environment — always.
  • Educate those around you.
  • Find another cache!

Good luck, and may all your cache dreams come true.
—cantuland
