It's the 15th Annual funbeach/Half-Canadian Event Weekend, and you're invited!
This year's event highlights the history of the beloved Clamshell Railroad that transported people, oysters, cranberries and more up and down the Long Beach Peninsula before there were paved roads! Known as the train that ran by the tide table, not by the time table, you'll retrace the whistle stops and learn about the early days of transportation out here at the "end of the road".
After you've been out all day hunting down geocaches and enjoying other fun activities in the area, head to our Ground Zero for the weekend, the Chautauqua Lodge to relax, unwind, and refuel. You can enjoy a fantastic (no host) all you can eat Mexican buffet, bring your own food in if you prefer, or just hang out and visit with friends. Dinner will be served from 6:00 - 7:30 pm and bottled water will be available at no charge. After dinner, enjoy a chunk of tasty cake to celebrate the event host's birthday and the 15th annual geocaching event she's hosted! There will even be special prizes for those who have attended the largest number of these epic events through the years! Check out the list of events from 2004 - 2018 and see how many you've attended!
This year's event will include a special trackable geocoin that you can earn by finding special themed geocaches placed in conjunction with the event. In order to collect your geocoin at the Saturday evening wrap-up dinner, you must pre-register at the website link below!
There will be so much to do that weekend, it won't fit on one geocaching page, so be sure to head log your "Will Attend" here before heading over to the official Cache Dash Splash website for all the details -- remember, you must pre-register there to help us get ready for the big weekend and to earn your trackable geocoin!
This year there will be five ... count 'em five ... events through the weekend, along with some great optional activities that you can enjoy with your paid registration!
Things kick off with Friday evening (The Dining Car - GC7P2P7), Saturday morning (All Aboard - GC7P336), Saturday evening (Tickets Please! (GC7P33H), Sunday morning (Whistle Stop Breakfast (GC7KCYZ), and a Sunday CITO event (The Caboose - GC7PG6W), and fun bonus stuff and contests planned for the weekend!
