Come one, come all...What a great way to start the new year, meeting old friends and making new ones. You might want to team up or go solo. A hot meal, and good company on a snowy cold winters morn, what more could one ask for? Whether you're new to geocaching or an old pro come on out and grab some grub and share your caching stories with fellow cachers. Then, if you are so inclined, head on out and find a cache or even make a day of it.
You can make it an event filled day:
Attend any of the four events today or all of them. Just be sure to have fun!
Blustery Photo Contest:
Do you like to geocache in the winter? Do you enjoy photographing your adventures? This year consider entering the Blustery Photo contest and you may be the photographer elite in the community, well at least garnish bragging rights and a prize. The photo contest starts December 1, 2016 and the deadline to enter is midnight on December 31, 2015. Learn how to enter the contest here.
Door Prize Drawing:
8:45am we'll have the door prize drawing. This year I've got a few Greenback Geocoins which have a matching trackable sticker for your car, thanks to Jamie Holley and her trackable making skills:) Not sure what else we'll have, if anyone wants to donate, see me, Mike Swaney at check-in.
Saturday January 7, 2017
from 07:30am to 09:00am
Golden Corral Restaurant
6803 W 159th St
Tinley Park, IL 60477
Phone (708) 444-8480 (Mgr. Ricardo Marquez)
We ask that each adult attending drop $1 in a tip jar which will be located at the sign-in table. The tip $ is given to the servers who work our area at the end of the event.
Trackables which will fit in a regular sized container are welcome and will be assured to move on from the event. Large trackables are the responsibility of the person who brings them, you must find someone who agrees to be responsible for moving them on.
Will There Be Snow?:
Maybe the right question is; will there be a polar vortex? Through the history of this event we've had a foot of snow within 24 hours prior to the event twice, temperatures below zero once, an absolutely lovely day once, and the rest were a mixed bag of cold windy days. That's the point of the event, the worse the weather the warmer the food and fellowship will be.
Every year we encourage the placement of caches for the event. If you would like to hide caches in conjunction with this event your efforts are truly appreciated. Please take into account the following guidelines for placing event caches....
- Ask the reviewer to publish the cache Thursday 01/05/2017 so that folks can download the waypoints prior to the event. (simply add a reviewer note to your cache page before submitting it.)
- Email Mike Swaney aka email@example.com with the name, and GC number of the new cache and it will be added along with your name to the list of event caches.
