Geocache Description:

18 September 2021, 10:00 - 10:30

World Wide Flash Mob
WWFM XVIII - Cannon Park

Be a part of geocaching history!

Finest bunch of Scallywags that ever sailed the briney deep!

Today is the 18th annual World Wide Flash Mob Celebration.

It falls the day before "Talk Like A Pirate Day".

(One of my favorite silly holidays!)

Arrive at 10 AM, and we'll all talk like a Pirate - ARR! 

At 10:30 AM we'll take a photo at the cannon

Goto GCWWFM.COM for ALL the World Wide Flash Mob Info!
This is a Flash Mob Gathering of Geocachers
Only 30 minutes long! You MUST be present DURING this time to claim the event. 

Summary: The Basic Idea

WWFM XVIII - World Wide Flash Mob coordinated events (see growing bookmark list)
Thousands of geocachers at many events all around the globe, gathering at the same time 

Meet at Cannon Park (at 10am) for instructions and preparation.

The Plan

The event will begin precisely at 10:00 am on Saturday, Sept 18 and will last 30 minutes.
A Bucket placed at ground zero will signal the start of the event!!!
Prior to the start time, mosey and wander about nonchalantly ... Then when the bucket is set down ... come towards Ground Zero

Due to Covid, we will forego the event "meal”. 

Your INSTRUCTIONS:

PLEASE BRING AN INDEX CARD ALREADY SIGNED WITH YOUR CACHING NAME

You will drop the card in the bucket instead of signing a log sheet.

You are encouraged to wear a Pirate Hat, a hook, an eyepatch or other pirating garb!

ADD this event to your watchlist for more detailed information! 

There Are Prizes!

Podcacher & WWFM Geocoins & Pirate Travel Tags

PRIZE WINNERS WILL BE DRAWN FROM THE CARDS IN THE BUCKET - Don't forget your card! 
Family members under the same caching name should submit a card for each attendee.

Covid Details:

If you are feeling sick in any way, or if you have been exposed to someone who has Covid-19, we respectfully ask that you not attend. Mask wearing is optional. Please be respectful of those who wish to maintain social distance.
