All attendees (who log this event as attended) will receive a virtual souvenir on their profile, regardless of whether or not you have hidden a geocache yourself.
This event will cover the entire process of submitting a tradtional geocache (other types will be discussed) to be published by geocaching.com, with special emphasis placed on containers and camouflage for site specific success that will hopefully prevent muggles from taking the container and will minimize cache owner maintenance.
Attendees are more than welcome to bring food and drinks as there are picnic tables and trash cans at the shelter and children can play at the nearby playground. The Monon Trail isn't too far away for those wishing to ride and get some exercise and downtown Carmel has plenty of options to choose from if you wish to grab lunch before the event.
The only downside to this location is that there are no public restrooms at the park. The closest public restroom is about a mile away on Main St., so please "plan" accordingly. A waypoint has been provided to show where the restrooms are located.
Finally, any attendees who are willing to bring examples of types of containers, both camouflaged and NOT camouflaged, that they have created or bought, it would be much appreciated. I will have quite a few examples on hand of cache containers but the more containers newer cachers can see, the better, as it will give them a better idea of containers they can use if they wish to submit their very own hide.
