Geocache Description:

18 September 2021, 10:00 - 10:30

Yes, it's yet another CJ-Curry WWFM event, scheduled for (checks notes) 10:00am?! (are... are you sure, CJ?)

(right here is where the WWFM logo would normally go. However, this year there are a lot of changes. See notes below.)

The long-awaited World Wide Flash Mob 2021 is here. Normally this is held at 5:00am in New Zealand but, as per this year's information on the WWFM website, "the time can be any time that works for your community". Natalie247 has graciously given me the timeslot she usually takes - that of Saturday morning - so I figured just for once I'd completely ruin my image of being evil and hold it at a gentle time.

As usual, we're going to flashmob anyone who's up at 10am on Saturday morning. Here's how we're going to do it: wear a hat. Too easy? Then the hat must be made out of a material that is not normally hat-worthy. Tin-foil, newspaper, cardboard are all acceptable - you can even stick a gumboot on your head if you'd like!

Event time: Saturday September 18th, 10:00am-10:30am (yes, "10am" is correct!)
Event place: see the coordinates or the hint below.
Event invitees: YOU. And also me.

It's likely to be warmer than usual for an early-morning WWFM, but hot chocolate shall still be provided as it's basically a tradition by now.

The Dunedin 5:00AM Early Morning CJ-Curry-Organised Event WWFM Hall Of Fame

  • Six-time Mobbers: CJ-Curry (I know I say this every year, but it's true: being the host every time isn't really Hall Of Fame material)
  • Five-time Mobbers: Natalie247, sirbennis
  • Four-time Mobbers: Hevic, dakotacats, gadget169, K.J.R
  • Three-time Mobbers: eve07

Notes: As mentioned above, this year there is no official time for WWFM, due in part to the ongoing health situation worldwide. There is also no official logo, there are no official geocoins or pathtags, and (as has been the case for a few years now) no souvenir from However, there is still the offer of a smiley. And hot chocolate. And hats.

Please note that this event will still be able to be run if New Zealand enters Alert Level 2 as I do not anticipate 100 people to attend. It will be cancelled if we enter Level 3 or 4.
