Date: Saturday, November 16th
Place: Galena Public Library - 601 S. Bench Street, Galena, IL
Come join me for a quick introduction to the positively addicting activity known as geocaching. We'll gather at the Galena Public Library at 9am for a quick video session and we'll make our way through the geocaching.com website. We'll show you how to search for, find, and log in your first geocache. Plus, we'll have 4 temporary geocaches scattered around the nearby area for you to practice finding.
There are also several permanent geocaches located within easy walking distance of the Galena Public Library. If you have a GPS unit, please bring it along with those caches pre-loaded. If you do not have a GPS, you will be teamed up with someone who does. After the practice caches we can do a Group Caching hike to the permanent caches and I will give handy tips and techniques that make finding caches easier.
If you do not already have a geocaching account, please visit the link above, or type http://www.geocaching.com/guide/ into your browser. There you will learn some basics and will be able to sign up for a free Geocaching Membership so that you can start logging caches right away, including this class which is a loggable Event Cache. I am sure you will have some questions. You can get them answered at this Geocaching 101 Class.
We would like to know how many Attendees to prepare for.
Please log a "Will Attend" log so that we can know how many are coming.
If you are not a Geocaching Member please call the Galena Library at 815-777-0200 to let them know you will be attending. Thank You.
There will be a couple door prizes as well as a surprise or two. I hope to see you then!
