Geocache Description:

 💯 SEMAG Meet & Greet #100 - The Centennial Event 💯

Town: Dartmouth (Park address is 443 Old Fall River Rd, Dartmouth, MA)

Date: June 24th

Time: 3 - 7 P.M.

 

Additional Info: It really is hard to believe, but this event will mark the 100th consecutive month in which a SEMAG event has been held! To commemorate this occasion, we are going big with this event with some activities planned!

 

It was fitting to return to Dartmouth for the 100th such event, as the original SEMAG event was held in Dartmouth way back in March of 2015. Since then, events have traveled throughout southeastern Massachusetts, going as far east as Barnstable and as far north as Abington. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, three events were held online, and one was in Rhode Island. The centennial SEMAG event will take place under the pavilion at Dartmouth Regional Park & Trails, a facility with ample parking available as well as restrooms.

 

The SEMAG 100 Kickoff Event will take place in the morning from 9:30-10. This event will include information to lead in to an interactive game for anyone that wants to take part in it. The SEMAG #100 Event Information Page contains more information about this. Please note that participation in this is not required for attendance at the main SEMAG 100 event.

 

We have several activities planned for the main event. See the schedule below for some more information. There will be a panel for gadget caches and a reviewer Q&A with at least one local Groundspeak reviewer. Refreshments will be provided, and some food will be available from a local caterer for purchase. A table for trackables will also be set up. If anyone is interested in SEMAG shirt or water bottle, please use the following link: t-shirt ordering. A limited quanity of shirts and bottles will be available for purchase at the event, so please order ahead if you want one!

Maker Magic

Update 5/23/23: This event was selected to be a "Maker Magic" event! Anyone who attends will recieve a "Maker Magic" souvenir. See the official geocaching blog post with more information on Maker Magic.
