This is the 5th Annual Texas County Challenge Finishers Reunion event!!
First and foremost, thanks to M-T-P for coming up with this crazy idea for a cache! Thank you to The Royal Order of the Lake for maintaining the cache and the verification process! Thank you to DE_Cryptoman for the history of previous events. Thank you to SKnight579 for keeping the "log" and bringing it to the last 3 events.
Now the important stuff:
This event will take place at The Downtowner Event Center (you all should have been here already). We will start the event at 5:00 and end at 6:00 PM after Challenge. That gives you 3 hours after the challenge to get some food and make your way back to the event center. It also gives us an hour for the meet and greet, log signing, shirt handing out, visiting the amazing vendors, and some pictures.
It's that time again! Another year has come and gone, and we have added more finishers names to the honored pages of THE logbook. Last years finisher event (pictured above) ended with 133 finishers of this epic challenge. This year we have added another 18 names to those honored scrolls! We have continued to climb and are now beyond the 150 mark of finishers! It is truly amazing how many cachers have committed to this challenge cache, and for that reason is why we have a TCC Finishers Reunion!

Please bring your finishers T-shirt with you so that we can wear them for the group photo.
All cachers will be able to log an attended log if they attend the event! There WILL BE a log book for attendees that have not finished the TCC. Finishers of the TCC that attend the event will sign the giant Texas board as they have in years past! If you are a finisher since the last event, please know which county was #254 for you, that way you can sign in the correct county on the front of the board! If you are a finisher that has already signed the front of the board, we will have a section to sign on the back as in years previous.
