Geocache Description:

Maker Madness cache building workshop April 1 at 7 p.m. - no fooling.
For newbies to learn the basic requirements and for experienced to learn new techniques of constructing geocache containers and share stories, hints and tips.

A Maker Madness Event - logged attendance earns you a Souvenier, and certificate of attendance. You'll also be welcome to take home a container and the basic elements for making your very own geocache.

When: Tuesday, April 1, 2014, 7 p.m. To 9 p.m.

Where: Middleton Public Library on Hubbard Street, Middleton WI

Why: to learn about geocaching and make some kool caches to spread the fun

For newbies and even those who have never geocached before, come and ask questions, learn the basics, learn hints and tips. Maybe even pick up your first container to place later.

For experienced cachers, share stories of your favorite hides and searching tips and tricks, and maybe carry away a container or two to inspire your next hide. Show off your own creations or give tips to those making one of their own.

Some things to do and see:

Watch caching videos

Story Time:
– come to the podium to talk to the group: Share stories of your favorite hides, show off what you brought for show and tell, or just introduce yourself and share a tip or hint.

And at least come and do the Middleton Library multi with its very own highly unusual placement and awesome container.

An assortment of containers, logs, stickers and help will be provided.

NOTE: There is another Maker Madness Event in Verona on the 3rd - you can consider these companion events. This one is educational, learning, crafts - focused on making containers with some socializing. Verona is social sharing stories - focus on sharing info hints and tips. You are welcome to attend both. And bring friends.
