Geocache Description:

02 May 2020, 11:30 - 14:00

 Please join us on May 2nd at Synergy Park in Kilgore, Texas to celebrate the 20th birthday of the game/hobby we all enjoy so much!

 We will gather at the pavilion on the banks of Elder Lake at 11:30 a.m. for fun, fellowship, and food. Is there a better way to celebrate a birthday on a Spring day than a good old fashion picnic? This will be a potluck picnic event, so bring your favorite dish and bring some to share. We will also have some fun activities to partipate in and the winners will receive cache prizes. Our Community Celebration Event will wrap up at 2:00 p.m. with prizes being handed out.


 We are reaching out to some of the earlier geocaching members in the area and hopefully they can regale us with some of their favorite caching stories from back in the old days. Some of us can't imagine how sparsely populated the area was with caches, or what it was like to cache before smart phones. As always, this event is open to any and all that wish to attend. Please invite any and all that you think may enjoy this game/hobby of ours, even if they are muggles. After all, recruiting new Folks is the key to keeping this phenomenon we call geocaching alive to turn 30 years old. 

Please,please, please log a "will attend" as soon as possible if you are planning to attend! 

Just like the game of geocaching, this is an outdoor event so please prepare for the weather conditions as needed. This event WILL NOT rain out. Everyone will need to bring their own chair. If anyone has a table, canopy, or anything else that can be helpful, please post a note on the event page.



This Event is part of a limited release of Community Celebration Events to celebrate 20 years of geocaching. Geocachers hosted events between May 2, 2020 and December 31, 2020. Learn more about Community Celebration Events on the Geocaching Blog.
