The event is held in Pécs, seat of Baranya county, at the foot of the Jakab Mountain. It lasts from Friday, May 10th to Sunday, May 12th.
We meet at Teca Mama Kisvendéglője (Teca Mama's Small Restaurant), the Base, at the entrance of the picturesque Éger-völgy (Éger valley), the gateway to the Western Mecsek. You will have a great hike in the beautiful, spingy Mecsek Mountain - and/or a great chat with fellow cachers at the Base.
On Friday, May 10th: Before-party at the Base
Have fun and meet fellow geocachers!
This will be HOT!
A short product demonstration and tasting will be held by Chili Szószok Webáruház
5-6 kinds of hot souces with various intensity will be introduced, so everyone can surely pick a favorite.
We are planning to make a stew in a kettle. If you arrive early, you can help cooking!
Please, make sure you let us now how many of you are coming on Friday so there is enough food for everyone!
ATTENTION: The event is partly outdoors, wear several layers of cloths! Though the ice-tea and chilli will keep you warm inside, it may be cold outside!

From 9:00 am: Registration, start of the competition
The competition will be near the Base. Stages to be found will be placed within a 2.5 km radius. Coordinates will be uploaded to your GPS at the time of registration on site. Some of the stages you MUST visit, others are voluntary, you may visit as many as you want. There will be two categories

Task: Inverse caching following a track.
Description: Pictures will be uploaded to your devise (GPS, phone, PDA). Printed pictures (in limited numbers) are also available at registration. If requested, the tracklog will also be uploaded to your GPS. Following that makes finding the required locations really easy.

Be prepared for the worst! It is strongly recommended to visit at least one of each type of task to avoid gaining minus points.
Goal: visit the required locations, find the task, solve it, fill in the task sheet.
Distance: about 12-18 km, 500-750 m elevation.
