About SideTracked Caches
SideTracked Caches are a series probably familiar to anyone that has been caching in the United Kingdom. SideTracked Caches are intended to provide quick Cache-and-dashes at Train Stations... a distraction for the weary traveller. And of course, anyone else can go and find them too. More Information can be found at the SideTracked Website.
About SideTracked Events
Every year in the UK, SideTracked Events have been held on 10th August (SideTracked Day) to celebrate the series... and this year is the 15th Anniversary. In previous years, special Souvenirs have been issued to attendees of anniversary events... and this will be no different.
About This Event
With the recent influx of SideTracked Caches in the eastern and south eastern suburbs of Melbourne, the time seems right to join in with the UK and celebrate SideTracked Day. Unlike the UK where it is summer, we are still in the depths of winter and need somewhere warm and dry to hold an event.
With railway stations quite reasonably ruled out as policy, an alternative railway themed location is required... and what better than a Railway Hotel. While a number of such places can be found in the inner and western suburbs of Melbourne, the eastern side of Melbourne doesn't fare so well... and that is why this event is being held at the
14 Main Street
Although it is some way out of Melbourne, for the committed rail enthusiast, the hotel is a short walk from Bunyip Station. For the rest of us, it should be an easy drive down the Princes Highway to Bunyip where there should be plenty of on-street parking available. The event is timed to start at 6:30pm so you are to buy dinner at the hotel... entirely optional of course! Although we are likely to hang around for longer, the event will officially finish at 8:00pm which is when the First to Find winner will be drawn... and also about when the hotel stops taking orders for dinner.
So I can manage the booking with the hotel, please log a Will Attend... preferably before 3rd August. Also please include the number of people attending and if you are likely to buy dinner.
