World Wide Flash Mob X
What? World Wide Flash Mob. Around the world, at the exact same time, groups of geocachers will assemble suddenly in a public place and disperse after a few minutes leaving onlookers wondering what just happened. Last year there was over 160 events in over 21 countries bringing geocachers together at the same time.
Were? Given co-ordinates
When? 20:00 - 20:15, May 4th 2013. The event only lasts 15 minutes!
Who? All are welcome especially anyone new to Geocaching & visitors to Latvia. This event will take place come rain or come shine so come prepared.
- In the fun spirit of the WWFM and especially as the date is May 4th May 4th is often known as "Star Wars Day". It is jokingly said: "May the 4th be with you", in reference to the popular phrase in Star Wars: "May the Force be with you" How could we resist!
On the day of the Event:
- Get to the area early, but STAY AWAY from GZ until 8pm.
- Act like a muggle before the event starts (don't congregate with other geocachers) 20:00 - A red bag will be placed at the designated coordinates to signify the start of the event.
- To make things more interesting for all, please wear wigs.
- Come over and get a log sheet to sign your attendance. Place your completed logsheet into the red bag. If you miss returning your log sheet, you missed the event.
- There will be a group photo taken
- At the end of 15 minutes, leave without a trace 20:15 ITS OVER !! The bag will be picked up and everyone must leave "Ground Zero". If everything goes right we will have lots of people converging on one spot for a 15 minute geocaching event and then disappearing in different directions. Should be fun and very confusing to any observing muggles : )
This year as soon as anyone logs an "attended" log on the event a special WWFM X Souvenir will be awarded and there is no requirement that the logging must be done within a certain number of days in order to receive it.
Please add this page to your watchlist for possible updates.
