It’s time for our annual CacheWalker Twixmas bash. It’s a move away from the Cotswolds to leafy Warwickshire to ring in the changes.
Everyone is welcome to attend, cachers old and new so come along and enjoy the usual geocaching gossip and festive goings on.
The bash is in two parts, the pre-event walk followed by the main event.
Meet at the Priors Village Hall at 9.15am for a 9.30am depart for the traditional Twixmas CacheWalker pre-event walk.
The route is approximately 5 miles along an undulating course. There is a nice hill to start with but the finish is fairly flat. The course leaves Priors Marston and follows a short narrow lane then footpaths/bridleways around the western edge of Hellidon Lakes golf course before heading back to the village. As is tradition with CacheWalker events there will be new caches released on the day. There are a few existing caches nearby and on the route.
We must point out that this is a pre-event walk and therefore you are not obliged to participate. We are simply noting it here so that you are aware of the goings on for the day, in keeping with Event guidelines. Please don’t forget to bring a change of footware for the official event afterwards as some of the route will almost certainly be muddy.
Note that the route is dog friendly but dogs are not allowed in the hall.
The Event will take place in Priors Village Hall from 12.00 till 15.00. We will have full access to the hall’s kitchen and toilet facilities. Lunch will not be provided by the organisers so bring your own food, Christmas leftovers or something else to eat and maybe share around. There will be the usual amount of geochat, fun, TB/GC spotting and of course the Secret Santa raffle.
Secret Santa Raffle
A raffle will take place to fund costs for the event and hire of the hall. If you can bring along a wrapped gift, ideally geocaching related (one that you would want to receive) that would be great. On your arrival please put your wrapped gift on Santa’s Raffle table. Then don’t forget to purchase a raffle ticket. Each present will be selected and a raffle ticket drawn from the lock-n-lock box.
Awards – it will be time to announce the winners of the CacheWalker 10th anniversary TB race and to set the target for the 2018 race.
TB/GC swapping and spotting – as usual, there will be time for TB swapping and spotting. Why not drop off your TBs in the box for other cachers to pick up and move on.
FTF draw – all attendees will be entered in the FTF draw. The winner shall go home with a little prize.
All the usual blahdy blah which means you do everything at your own risk and CacheWalker is not responsible for anything (including the weather). If you don’t feel safe then don’t do it. Simples.
Please watch this page for any updates and announcements as we get closer to the event.
CacheWalker is a group of cachers who enjoy walking and we have a forum to chat about caching and walking. We sometimes get together to go out caching too! Keep up to date with future plans for events and group walks on our forum – it’s not too late for you to join us.
