The 6th Annual GeoRoc Holiday Family Event this year is December 9 at the Millennium Lodge in Greece Canal Park. Plenty of parking and there’s even a nearby playground if the weather is nice enough. (There are tennis courts too but that’s just wishful thinking…). The lodge has a refrigerator, stovetop, and oven available. There's also a fireplace and in-lodge restrooms.
Unfortunately we were unable to get free accommodations this year, so we are requesting a donation to help pay for the lodge. $3/person and $5/couple. Folks under 18 years of age are free.
TIME: The event will begin at noon and continue throughout the afternoon.
FOOD & DRINK: Please bring a dish to pass (appetizers, desserts, munchies, etc.) or beverages (no alcohol). Post what you’re bringing and I’ll keep a running list below.
RAFFLES: Two raffles will be available….”pick-a-prize” style, where you get to enter your raffle tickets for prizes you hope to win, and a 50/50 raffle. If you’d like to donate one or more items for the pick-a-prize raffle, let Potter Trekies know. Potter Trekies
EVENT HIDES: If anyone wants to place an event hide, let me know the coordinates and any description and they’ll get posted at the event.
EVENT ACTIVITIES: The Potter Trekies are putting together some activities for the event. For sure there will be a Trackables Swap and also GeoRoc Bingo. More details to come….
VOLUNTEERS: There are several opportunities to volunteer to help with this event. See the Wanted: list below for specifics. Post a note in your log entry or email me if you’d like to help out by filling in one of the remaining TBD slots. 12/8: All TBDs have been filled...thank you!!
