Everyone is welcome to come and enjoy the great Northern Michigan winter outdoors. It's a chance to swap geocaching stories around the campfire, eat some great food, and do some geocaching in the snow!
Time: 9:30 AM – 3:30 PM
Date: Saturday, January 20, 2007
Place: SE of Traverse City, follow your GPSr to the coordinates above.
Lunch: 1:00 PM
Cost: FREE! - But donations would be appreciated to help defray costs.
Door Prize Drawing: 2:30 PM
Bring your chairs, snowshoes, a bundle of wood for the fire**, and all your geocaching stories. Oh yeah, don't forget your GPSr and extra batteries. Be sure to dress for the weather... cold and snowy. We could have single digit temps and heavy snow, or bright sunny skies all day.
The "Dead Animal Hat Club" will be in attendance so if you have a dead animal hat... wear it! Creativity welcome!
Actually, the coordinates above are for the trailhead parking lot of the Muncie Lakes Pathway located in the Pere Marquette State Forest, the same location as the previous year's event. There will be several new caches placed within snow shoeing distance in time for event day, and several more already in place within a short driving distance. There is a primitive outhouse at the parking lot, but NO running water or indoor heat!
Please be aware, there is a cross-country ski trail in the area, when seeking out the caches, DO NOT walk on the trail or allow your dog to walk on the trail!!!
The lunch menu will include my world famous chili, hot french fries, fresh home made bread, hot dogs, chips, cookies, and hot chocolate. All food will be provided again this year but to help cover the cost, a $3.00 per person donation would be appreciated. If you would like to bring something for the food table, please contact me.
The door prize drawing will be held promptly at 2:30 PM, you must be present to win. Donations for the prize table are welcome!.
Be sure to spread the word about the TC Winter Convergence. Hope to see you all there and be sure to put this cache on your watch list!
