In August, Groundspeak sought entries into the 2019 Geocaching International Film Festival. The 16 final contestants have been selected and their short films have been assembled into an approximately hour long reel that will be released to select Geocaching events on the days November 7-17, 2019.
Taft will be hosting such an event on Saturday November 9, 2019 with the doors opening at 11 AM at the Taft West Hills Church of the Nazarene. This event is free! Bring your own refreshments and snacks (we have ice and a microwave for popcorn) while you mingle with fellow cachers, trade trackables, and just enjoy some fellowship. You can even bring your own lunch if you wish! We will pass out ballots of the films so when the films start, you can cast your vote for the film you like the most.
The films will begin at 12 PM and should last approximately one hour for all 16 films. Once the viewing is over, we will tally the votes for what you think was the best film, and continue to discuss the films, local caches, and just hang out until the event is over at approximately 1:30 PM. In true Taft event fashion, we will then select a local restaurant to go enjoy a meal at after the event is over.
Show up before the show to our Taft Cache In Trash Out®, Season 2 2019 II if you haven't earned your CITO Souvenir yet. Come to Taft on Saturday November 9 for plenty of exciting Geocaching action. We hope to see you here!
There are too many great caches in the area to just find them on Saturday November 9, so join us a month early on October 5 for another double event Saturday for the Taft Cache In Trash Out®, Season 2 2019 I followed immediately by KCC Pill Bottle Cache Contest Awards Event at The Bank in Taft from 11AM to 1 PM. And if that wasn't enough, you also have the epic and one of a kind Taft Shooter's Challenge 2019 on Saturday November 30, 2019. Cache Kern County!
