We will also be setting caches in nearby Southford Falls State Park, just up the road.
Trail data is available for Millers Trail and Pomperaug and Crest Trails with the ability to download track data directly to your GPS.
WHAT A GREAT DAY!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU...
to all the committee heads, members and volunteers who made this event possible. It could not have been done without you.
I think a special thanks has to go to PLANET whose undying devotion and hard work both before, during and after the event were unsurpassed. I think next year she needs some more help.
Thanks also to:
RJFerret for monitoring cache placement and his unique "Connect The Dots" night cache.
Clan Delaney for the fantastic mapping of the campsites so we could all find eachother
1NatureMom for keeping all our younger cachers busy and making them feel part of the family
Katydid & Miles Stone for keeping track of all our Travel Bugs
Bigrock95 for the "Dash To The Cache" and other games that he provided.
Zucher for the great amount of time it took to set up his unique "Kettletown at Night 2" cache,
and to so many of you that provided caches, grills, boiling pots, charcoal, food, utencils and hospitality to our newer cachers.
TOTAL TEAMS: 126
TOTAL PEOPLE: 209
GPS Winner: Canadian Gal
GMRS Radios Winner: Climbermom
Distant Travalers: Virginia, Maine and Minnesota ! Thanks for coming!
I still have Geocoins left and will sell then to all attendees for the Jamboree price ($6 + shipping). Just e-mail me (Geojamboree@aol.com) I will also bring them to any other events I go to throughout the summer.
A final note: Cache owners, don't forget to stop by the park sometime in the near futuure as your log books may need replacing after all these finds - especially those mini's and micro's.
And don't forget to share your pics with us.
SEE YOU NEXT YEAR
Cache Committee:RJ Ferret
Kids Games Committee:1NatureMom!

There are several ways to get there for you locals. But for out-of-towners, I would suggest getting of Rt. 84 at Exit 15, follow the brown, then the green signs to Kettletown State Park (Kettletown Rd.) to Georges Hill Road (N.41°26.781 W.73°11.324). Follow road to park entrance (N.41°25.817 W.73°12.079).
