DON’T MISS THE SOCIAL EVENT OF THE YEAR IN KC!

SO MARK YOUR CALENDARS ...

This year we’re going back...back to a time when families and friends gathered to enjoy just being together.

Bring yourself, your family and friends. Grab your favorite side dish to share, some family friendly beverages and lawnchairs and head to Ground Zero. We’ll be providing the fried chicken and picnic supplies.


WELCOME TO ALL OUR GEOCACHING FRIENDS, FAR AND WIDE


***We have a special offer for those of you traveling over 100 miles for the event. Since it’s difficult to provide a side dish when traveling, for $5 a person we will order a food dish for you. Please contact Carlin and she’ll place your order. You can then make your payment at the registration desk when you arrive.***

GET LUCKY:

Since it’s our 13th picnic, 13 lucky cachers will be heading home with one of 13 unique containers filled with geocaching goodies. Everyone will receive an entry ticket when you stop by to get your name tag at the registration table. Just put your caching name on the ticket and place it in the can associated with the prize you would like to win. Additional tickets will be awarded to game winners and they’ll also be available for purchase at $1 per ticket or 6 for $5.
