Geocache Description:

The SLAGA Spring Picnic 2010

Celebrating 10 Years of Geocaching!!!

On May 1, 2000 the announcement that Selective Availability would be switched off was made.

On May 2, 2000, at approximately midnight, eastern savings time Selective Availability was switched off.

On May 3, 2000 Dave Ulmer initiated the "Great American GPS Stash Hunt" by hiding a black bucket with items inside including videos, books, software, and a slingshot as well as a logbook and pencil. He then posted the coordinates in an internet GPS users' group.

Within three days, two different people read about his stash on the Internet, used their own GPS receivers to find the container, and shared their experiences online.

And thus with these humble beginnings our sport/game was born!!

AND in case you didn't know yet, Groundspeak has decided to create a SPECIAL 10 Years! Anniversary Event Icon to celebrate the celebrations of this weekend. If you attend a Ten Years! Event and are in the group photo taken during the event, this new and unique Icon will show on your "Found" page. How cool is THAT??!!?

The 2010 SLAGA Spring Picnic is going to be held on May 1 at the brand new Sugar Creek and Lions Shelters in beautiful Kirkwood Park in Kirkwood, MO.

GeoPioneer, a Geocaching Kirkwood Resident helped up obtain reservations for these great facilities at the resident rate!! THANK YOU VERY MUCH, Geo Pioneer!!!

What a difference a few months make...

These twin shelters each can hold 150 people. Each one has two barbecue grills and there is a large fire pit located strategically between the two shelters. The restrooms are adjacent to the Sugar Creek Shelter and there is lots of nearby parking. The facilities are completely handicapped accessible with level, paved sidewalks from parking.

The purpose of this Event is Celebrating the 10 Year Anniversary of our favorite sport with a Barbecue/Potluck Lunch, GPS Games and, who knows what else. Since it's being held on May Day we might even set up a May Pole... LOL!!

Please place this Event on your "Watch List" as more information will be added as details become clearer.

Oh, and did I forget to mention: There is a Multi-Event Geocoin being designed for all of the various 10 Years of Geocaching Events being held throughout the USA and around the world. SLAGA will have their own version of this coin!! This is it!!.

ONLY 100 of the SLAGA version of the 10 Years! Geocoin have been minted!! So in order to ensure that everyone who wants one get one there will be a limit of One (1) coin per Geocaching Name/Team/Family. Once everyone (caching name/team name/family) has one, IF there are any left over, you may come back for a second one. I am NOT taking reservations. If you want a coin, I suggest that you arrive early (but not before set up is complete). Someone will be in charge of selling them (ooh, another job to be assigned) but it won't be me this time.

And now for some important details!!
