When the moon hits your eye
Like a big pizza pie, that's amore
When the world seems to shine
Like you've had too much wine, that's amore!
Monday night, February 17th, 7pm
Ah, love ...
If you love geocaching as much as we do, you don't want to miss this special event! We have lots of fun in store for everyone who joins us Monday night, February 17th, in Rome. What says "amore" better than Italian food?!!
After dinner, the party begins. We will have plenty of games and prizes for everyone. Plus, there's that little something special ...
For the month of February, every Premium Member of geocaching.com will be able to hide one personal geocache for one special person. Once this geocache is found and logged by one account, it is automatically archived. This is not your father's geocache — it is a Lab Cache for the month of February only, which celebrates "I ♥ Geocaching". A Lab Cache is an experimental and extremely rare geocache type. Of course, we are putting our little twist on this unique caching opportunity and we need your help.
Everyone is welcome to attend this event. Everyone who attends will be able to participate in several games we have planned plus there will be plenty of door prizes.
If you wish to participate in the "I ♥ Geocaching" Lab Cache game, please do the following:
1. On February 3rd, details on hiding a "I ♥ Geocaching" Lab Cache will be announced to all Premium Members by Geocaching HQ. Follow the special guidelines, visit the Builder and hide your cache (don't forget to include your Find Code inside your lab cache). Please note that there are very few restrictions on Lab Caches and no review process. Just use your imagination and common sense.
2. Keep your Lab Cache and its URL address secret. Write this information in a Valentine, seal it up in an envelope and bring it to this event. Don't indicate who it is from on the outside but do include the URL address link and your contact information (such as email address or at least your Geonick) on the Valentine itself.
3. When you arrive at this event, turn in your Lab Cache Valentine and you will be given a numbered ticket. We will call numbers and everyone who brought a Lab Cache Valentine will randomly choose an envelope. That will be your special Lab Cache that only you can log. Everyone who brings a Lab Cache Valentine will receive one.
Again, everyone is welcome to attend whether you decide to hide a "I ♥ Geocaching" Lab Cache. We will have plenty of fun to go around! However, you must hide a Lab Cache and bring a Valentine in order to receive one in return.
Please log your "will attend" early so you don't miss announcements and updates. We also need an accurate head count for the restaurant.
Happy Valentine's Day!
Puzzler and Cabdriver of ...

But wait ... there's more!
In keeping with the theme of the month and the special Lab Cache, we invite all lovers to bring love locks and secure them at N34 15.241 W85 10.592 any time prior to the event. A love lock is a padlock (sometimes a pair of locks) that sweethearts lock to a bridge, fence or gate to symbolize their love. Typically the sweethearts'' names or initials are inscribed on the lock and the key is thrown away or dropped into the water below to symbolize unbreakable love. Since the 2000's, love locks have proliferated at an increasing number of locations worldwide.
