The Rats started caching in 2002, back then our nearest cache was almost 30km's away and there were no other local cachers. Some 5 years later there's now over 90 caches and a heap more cachers in that 30km radius.
With so many new people taking up this crazy sport we thought it was time the local caching community got together. Thus 'The Rats' are hosting the first Illawarra/South coast caching BBQ. Come and join us put a face to a name, swap a story and enjoy a bite to eat.
If you are new to this game, don't be shy, many good friendships have been made at these events, nobody cares about how many caches you have or haven't done. There will be cachers there with a wealth of experience and advice, so mark this date on your calendar.
Its a BYO day so don't forget your lunch & GPS. We'll meet you at the posted co-ords about 10:30am on 24/2/07. There is a large undercover area with BBQ facilities, you'll need to bring your own chair.
Please post a note to say how many will be attending, bring the whole family and we look forward to seeing you there.
How to get there: Blackbutt Reserve is a fairly big park and thus has a number of entry points. The easiest way to get to GZ is to turn off Shellharbour Rd into Woodlands Dr, follow this to the end. Turn left into Blackbutt Wy and follow this straight up the hill, you'll go through the gate and into the park. Follow this road around to the carpark. The attached map should help those who still can't find it.
