Its a new month and there are a lot of events going on in April. I thought I'd highlight a few and see what you think:

Tuesday, April 5 - ArkGeo April Eat-N-Greet: Ft. Smith - 6-?

Furr's in Ft. Smith in the dining room of the restaurant to the left of the dessert bar. Come enjoy food and fellowship with other geocachers at this Eat-N-Greet event sponsored by the Arkansas Geocachers Association (ArkGeo). You do not have to be a member of ArkGeo to attend! Hosted by IdRatherBeHIking, ArkGeo Board Member

Wednesday, April 13th - THE TAX MAN COMETH - Russellville - 6-8PM


Come enjoy dinner and fellowship with other geocachers from the Arkansas River Valley area. It will be a nice way to relax before TAX DAY arrives! Western Sizzlin’ in Russellville in one of the back banquet rooms. Hosted by Old River Runner

Saturday April 16th - Dash for the Cache 2011 - An NWAC Event - Bentonville - 3-6PM

The NorthWest Arkansas Cachers would like to invite you to join us for our second annual Dash for the Cache at Memorial Park in Bentonville from 3 to 6 PM on Saturday April 16th.

Saturday, April 16th - Chase's Decade - Cabot - 11am-2pm
To celebrate one of the Bates Gang's Birthdays they are hosting a Geocaching Event in Chase Bates honor. This is one of his favorite things to do with his family. So lets celebrate a decade of Chase Bates. In order to count this as an event you will have to sign Chase's giant birthday card! There will be a fishing derby, frisby golf tournament, potato sack races and much more fun

Are you planning on attending any of these events? Or planning one of your own?

Good afternoon everyone!! We are from Texarkana and new to Geocaching, but have become so addicted to it that we are putting on our first event April 30th for the Cache In Trash Out Day. I see alot that has to be approved by geocaching.com, so we're slow to post stuff, but we are super excited about what is to come. Maybe I went over the top a little after looking at other CITO events, but hopefully we'll have a great turnout anyway. We are actually getting our event sponsored by a pretty big company in town, and if it all is confirmed by tomorrow the way I want it to be, we will be providing lunch, t-shirts to all who attend, a bag of goodies for caching, such as water, gloves, trash bags, first aid kits, etc. a small souvenior/keepsake. Are there any meetings, geocachers, or events down this way that anyone else knows of?

Sounds great momofplenty. Been a while since there has been an event in Texarkana. If I remember right, the GeoMaze is in T-Town right now too, so it would be a great time for cachers to come down and participate in the CITO then go over to the museum to see the maze.
