2020 is the year Geocaching turns 20. It's also the year I have a milestone birthday, but my number is a little higher. (No, I'm not 114 before anyone says it!). I also know of at least one other cacher who is celebrating a milestone birthday the same week as me!
When I was awarded a Community Celebration event, I knew straight away I wanted to tie it in with my birthday, but I wasn't sure in what format. Then I went to an event where card games were played and I soon had an idea - a games evening.
So come and join me to celebrate my birthday and Geocaching turning 20. There will be games to play and the bar will be open, as well as the usual chat that comes with Geocaching events, all whilst celebrating various milestone birthdays! Everyone is welcome - this celebration is open to Geocachers and non-Geocachers alike.
Games available will include Uno, Dobble, Snakes & Ladders, Beetle Drive and playing cards (and probably more besides). If anyone has any games along these lines, please feel free to bring them with you.
The bar will be open, but there won't be food. Children are welcome.
