Geocache Description:

Join us in celebrating the Ultimate Pi Day by partaking in the consumption of delicious pie and some great fellowship with other cachers (and probably some Muggles, too). The event will run from 9-10 AM but you'll want to make sure you're there at 9:26:53.5 AM to experience the EXACT π moment. This will be the only occurrence in our lifetimes! On-street parking is available, but this is a fairly small shop in Zionsville so you may have to hunt around for a parking spot.


This is my first time hosting an event and I couldn’t think of a better location to hold it.  Thanks go to Kelly Maucere, owner of the hosting establishment, for granting permission to hold our event in her shop.  The earliest known large-scale official Pi Day celebration was organized by physicist Larry Shaw in 1988 at the San Francisco Exploratorium.  On March 12, 2009, the US House of Representatives passed HRES 224 recognizing March 14th as National Pi Day.  The 2015 Pi Day is significant because 3/14/15 9:26.53.5 represents the first 11 digits of π (3.1415926535….), and the day will contain the EXACT π moment corresponding to ALL the digits of π – but pay attention, it won’t last long. laugh  As a side note, the day is also notable as the birthday of Albert Einstein.  Today would have been this relatively famous scientist’s 136th birthday.

π represents the relationship of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, so come join us in the celebration and increase both your circumference and diameter!
