July 3rd, 2010 and Geowoodstock VIII are fast approaching. Many of us here in the Pacific Northwest have been gearing up for this event since last year! We are very excited to be hosting the largest geocaching event in the country during the 10th Anniversary of Geocaching. We’ve held awareness and fundraising events all over Washington and our neighboring states. But! That is not enough! We would be honored to have attendees from every State in the Union and from every country in the World!
Help Us Get the Word Out!!
To do my part in helping to spread awareness for Gewoodstock VIII, I created a little folded flyer called a Zine. I chose this format instead of a regular old piece of paper just because they are fun to find and fun to give. The finished size is 2.75 x 4.25 inches and two of them fit nicely into a 4 x 5 zip-lock bag.
I put two in a bag so there is one for someone to keep and one for them to place in another cache to keep the message moving. There is a space on the back for you to fill in your caching name and I leave the other one blank for the finder to fill when they drop it into the next cache.
It’s a two page PDF file. The first page is the flyer and the second is the folding directions for those who are new to the format.
New Puzzle Caches
Not that Washington doesn’t already have more than enough ammo cans stashed in the woods, but 13 local cachers have been very busy making sure that your visit here to Geowodstock will be caching heaven. The most recent series of caches definitely caught my eye!
The “PEACE SIGN SERIES” uses 42 separate puzzle caches to create this lovely array. Now, here’s the kicker… 21 of the 42 caches contain a clue to the final cache in the series: PEACE SIGN SERIES #43: THE FINAL – GC24NBA. This should keep all puzzle lovers very happy come July! I know it has tickled my fancy quite a bit!
New Event Listing
Another recent Geowoodstock related event was published recently. The Lost & Found Celebration – GC24GYW – Hosted by the Groundspeak Lackeys. It’s July 4th, the day after Geowoodstock. They are asking for will attend logs before finalizing arrangements for the event so be sure to visit the page as soon as you can.
Well, that’s enough for now. It’s Tuesday and ya’ll know what that means. And today… I’m thinkin’… Road Trip!
