The first event in the Earthcache Edinburgh weekend - come and meet other earthcachers, learn from a geologist from the Edinburgh Geological Society, and have a chance to get your questions answered before a weekend of earthcaching!
Come when you can and leave when you must - time for hearing about Edinburgh's geology - time for questions and answers - time to plan your route around Edinburgh's geocaches - time to get hints and tips on getting your own earthcaches published.
The venue is on the second floor of Costa at the foot of Hanover Street. The steps are quite steep, but there's coffee, food and cake available.
