Geocache Description:

25 January 2020, 16:00 - 16:30

Its the 25th January, a date celebrated throughout the civilised world - the date that the famous baird was born. Tradtionally folk gather, eat haggis, neeps and tatties, drink whisky and talk of times long ago, when a mouse was a moose, and Tam o'shanter rode over a bridge. For the past number of years I have put an event on to celebrate this day, talk caching, have some banter and meet good folk. After a night high up in the Dales toasting the baird, I shall have returned to West Yorkshire, and though why not open up the tradition to those not so able to get up high.

So what will there be?

A warm welcome.

A chance to sample the amber nectar.


A dram if you want.

A warming brew. 

Geocaching talk.

A chance to exchange trackables.

Perhaps a son of the land of Burns himself... to recite an ode to the baird himself and a story about :

Wee, sleekit, cowran, tim'rous beastie.

Come along, there will be a warm welcome, and whether you are a weathered cacher, or new to the game, there will be a friendly hand to great you. To get into the mood of the day, please could you wear something tartan, it is up to you, whether you wear a scarf, tam o shanter, socks, trews or the kilt. 

So where, well there is a folly castle in Roundhay Park, Leeds. 

When : the 25th January 2020

Time : 1600 - 1630. 

It may be getting dark, so a torch may be handy.
