Wait a minute...where'd the short description go?!?
Oh; here it is: The 64th in a series of monthly meet and greets in Eldersburg at Panera Bread from 6:00PM to 8:00PM. Attendees generally show up early, and It usually runs over. These people are enthusiasts!
On this day in 1384, Geaoffrey Chaucer's "Canterbury Tales" characters began their pilgrimage to Canterbury, or so scholars think. Actually it was a trip to a Letterboxing Mega-Event in Canterbury, but as Groundspeak didn't offer a souvenier, pixels were lost, and history went awry.
William Holden and Jennifer Garner were both born on this day, but not of the same parents, or in the same geocache.
Yngve Moe, famed Norwegian bass player and songwirter died on this day. You likely never heared of him as he never hosted any geocaching events. He could rock that axe though!
It is Women's Day in Gabon today. Not sure what they really do there with regard to that, if any of you know, please enlightne us. Women are an extrmely important part of geocaching, so it must be related somehow.
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 (visit link) 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 assistance. If you are new to geocaching, we are eager to get your caching career off to an excellent start! 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 a travelling Little Free Library of geocachiong books! 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. All are welcome, so please come and join the crowd!
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, 17 April 2018.
Where? Panera Bread, 6300 Georgetown Boulevard, Eldersburg, Maryland (or just use the convenient coordinates posted above!).
