Alderney Away Day (Channel Islands) Event Cache

This cache has been archived.

Simply Paul: A little late on archiving this due to other travels - sorry.
It looked like I might be having a lonely picnic here, but then Twinkle10 arrived, introduced himself, and off we went to do some caching, while chatting... More to follow on my Attended log - along with photos - so pop this meet on your watch list if you'd like to see them. I've so many caches/events to catch up on! Cheers again

Geocache Description:

Alderney is the target for this remote cache event.
Since 2010's 'non-event' of GC229YB All the way to Alderney, I hope for better luck in 2014!

When: NOTE CHANGE OF DATE! 12pm-1pm, MONDAY June 9th 2014. Sorry for the last-minute swap with GC4VER3 Herm from Herm!

What: A picnic event to talk caching and swap travel items in lovely, dramatic, historic surroundings.

Where: At the eastern tip of the island, on the coastal path just south of Fort Quesnard; the closest point to France.

Why: Because there are caches on Alderney to be found (just 2 in 2010; nearly 40 now!) and if an event will bring more cachers to the most remote of the Channel Islands to find them, that's reason enough for me. Basically it's one of those 'because it's here' things :)

Who: Cachers from far and wide, I hope. Plus their offspring and dogs. New to caching or cache events? You'll be made especially welcome.
