It is a year for Geocaching anniversaries. It is 20 years since the Big Blue Switch was flicked and the game was born. And it is 8-and-a-bit years since cachers in North Herts got together for the first of (what became) a series of events in the East of the BBH* area. A chance to meet together on a 'school night', but without having to travel too far across into the 'heartland'. The first event, the North Herts Happening was at the Three Horseshoes in Norton, Letchworth in November 2011.
Since then, the event series has expanded its reach; so we've dropped the 'North Herts' tag, We now regularly welcome cachers from Beds and Cambs - with others popping in from further afield. All are always welcome...
April 2020 marks the 100th Happening and in celebration, we return to one of our old 'weekend' haunts. A Saturday lunchtime - hopefully to enable as many friends to gather to celebrate as possible. There will be 'Happening 100' cupcakes to mark the occasion!
Join us from 12 noon - 2pm on Saturday 18th April 2020 at Danish Camp on the banks of the Great Ouse at Willington, Bedfordshire. All cachers and muggles welcome - even if this will be your first event!
Saturday 18th April 2020 12 noon - 2pm
Danish Camp Riverside Visitor Centre
There is free parking and plenty of things to do on site as well as the cafe - including riverside walks and lots of great Marston Vale (aliandtone) caches on the doorstep too! We hope to be seated outside in the garden area by the river, but there is plenty of room inside the log cabin otherwise.
This event will include an official FTF drawn at random from all the attendees who sign the log book.
