2006 FALL PICNIC
SEPTEMBER 9, 2006
BROWN COUNTY STATE PARK
What can I say, the Planning Team did a great job! It was a pleasure working with everyone on the team. Obviously, there are some very creative minds within this group. Thanks to the team for making planning the weekend so much fun!
Of course, the picnic wouldn't have been a success without all the geocachers who attended. It was nice to meet all of you. Thanks for attending!
In the near future, we will be sending you a survey on the picnic and caching in Indiana. Please help us out by filling out the survey, offering suggestions, etc. This is your way of helping plan future events!
Thanks for coming! See you on the trail!
News form the 2005 Fall Picnic Planning Team
Thanks to everyone who has registered for the picnic. We have loads of things planned for the weekend including 35 new caches in the area. We can't wait to see you there!
Saturday's main event starts with registration at Clifty Shelter at 9:00 a.m. Activities for the day include a kid's cache, a Geo-Concentration Tournament, event caches, raffles, a silent auction, a night caching hike and of course, our premier event, Geo-Survivor.
Keep in mind, that there is a limited number of participants in both Geo-Concentration and Geo-Survivor. Pre-registration is required.
A Magellan Explorist 600 GPS will be raffled at $5 per chance and another one will be part of our Silent Auction. These Explorists retails for $450 each. Bidding for the Silent Auction will begin at $200 so bring your cash! All proceeds will aid in defraying to the cost of the picnic.
The Saturday night caching hike should be beautiful with just a flashlight; however, the hike would really be enhanced by putting a red filter on your flashlight if you have one. Hot dogs and buns will be furnished for this event. Don't forget to bring a drink!
Here's what you need to bring:
- Chili and drinks for the chili dump
- For Saturday, everyone brings their own meat, buns and
drinks along with a side dish (with service spoon) to share.
A grill will be ready for your use. Foil, hot pads, spatulas,
tongs, plates, napkins, utensils and condiments will be
- There are a good number of picnic tables at the shelter, but
you may want to bring along lawn chairs.
- Cash for raffles and silent auction
- A contribution for the prize giveaway
- Flashlight and drinks for the night cache
- Travel bugs
So, gather up your goodies, fill up your gas tank, hope for good weather and head for Clifty Falls. We will be there waiting for you!
