Geocache Description:

The 27th in a series of monthly meet and greets in Eldersburg at Panera Bread from 6:00PM to 8:00. It usually runs over.  These people are enthusiasts! Be sure to read the entire description below, important details change from month-to-month!  We wouldn't want you to miss anything!


The Carroll County Caching Fellowship  (C3F) cordially invites you to enjoy the pleasures of the social side of the geocaching hobby!  To find out who we are and what we're about, please visit http://c3f.finditlogitspreadit.info.  Come on out and meet fellow cachers, share stories of your trials and tribulations (or Trials and Tubulations!) in searching for that elusive hide, and swap travel bugs and geocoins.  Here's a chance for you to experience the part of the hobby that doesn't feature poison ivy, ticks, mosquitos, chiggers, leeches, cockleburs, beggar's lice, thorns or greenbriar!  Instead, come observe the oddities of human behavior as your fellow cachers wander 'round the parking lot scribbling down codes from trackable vehicles, shooting photos of each other's nametags, and generally examining each other closely to insure they have not missed a trackable t-shirt, bracelet, earings or necklace!  Hear tales of DNF woe (bring extra kleenex, would ya'?).  Hear tales of FTF triumph (bring extra champagne will ya'?).

Regular attendees at this monthly event include some truly stellar cachers from our local area, who are filled with caching wisdom, friendly, and eager to share their experience and help answer questions if you need help.  We have master puzzle cachers, master woodsmen, geotrail kings and queens, prolific cachers, and once-in-a-whilers.  We have Rogi!  We have bugs!  We have way too much hype and excitement!  

But beyond all that, with all sincerity, we have a tremendous group of regular attendees who are always looking for ways to give back to the geocaching community, and are truly a pleasure to be around.  

Makes you all weepy, don't it?  Ok let's get back to being silly!

WARNING***WARNING****WARNING       

Bah.  Pesky government weenies.  Just because there was a huge breakout of zombie travel bugs all over the planet recently doesn't mean it is a problem here.  That's a bunch of malarkey!  There IS NO GOVERNMENT in Eldersburg.  It is just a census designated place (CDP), whatever that means.  Come on out, it'll be just fine!

{insert hidden secret subliminal cache event message here that they won't know about unless they look really close: Progking पिछले एक पर नहीं था और हम तबाह हो गए थे}

We will be continuing geocaching crash courses in 2015. At the beginning of each session, we'll conduct a ten minute crash course in some aspect of geocaching, just to get the juices flowing and the conversations started (really this is a vain attempt to keep the puzzle cachers off topic, it never works).  This month's Crash Course topic will be: GPX file editing, WAAS, and polytheism in ancient Sumeria.  Any requests?  Feel free to make a request for a future topic in your 'will attend' log!  better yet, request a topic on the forums at our website!

Be sure to ask Zekester what "Be the Bug" means!  No, it is not a virus!!!

Also, there are a number of caches nearby in Eldersburg, be sure to check them out!  There's probably a new one just for this event.  There usually is.  Who knows?

For whom: This event is for YOU!!! Regardless of whether you have found a handful of caches or thousands of them, or you just have a burgeoning interest, all are welcome!   We don't bite (well our zombies do, but we don't) , we're really nice!  Honest!  Ask anyone!  
 
When? 6:00PM to 8:00PM, on Tuesday, 21 APR 2015.

Where? Panera Bread, 6300 Georgetown Boulevard, Eldersburg, Maryland (or just use the convenient coordinates posted above!).

Why? Have dinner.  Meet a cacher.  Tell a tale.  Trade a coin or travel bug.  Meet Rogi! Find out what "Be the Bug" means!

This month's raffle may feature a variety of materials useful to cachers, possibly including, but not limited to: 6 volts of surging power, test tubes, tesla coils, erlenmeyer flasks filled with eau de manbear, leftover unused materials from the zombie vats, surplus from the Mercury program, pathtags, a Winnebago, a haiku puzzle cache, india ink, the ball from an IBM Selectric typewriter, U-bolts, lug nuts, filberts, a pheasant claw, night-vision goggles, marbles, a funnel (it was not used in the production of more turkeys, we promise), two potatoes, coriander, an exultation of larks, and scratch-n'-sniff test cards.       

If you pick up a travel bug, please make sure that make sure you log it out so it doesn't show up in the event list.

Odd travelbugs have been known to show up at this event.  Harpoons.  Crocodile heads. Gargoyles.  Auto parts.  What could it be this time???  Will Jed make his appearance?
