View Full Version : Cache Event in Clarksville on Jan 22.

01-10-2005, 10:03 PM
Everyone is invited to join us in Clarksville on Sat Jan 22 for another geocaching Meet and Greet. All are welcome regardless of your experience level. If you have interest please look at the cache page "Are We Doing It Again?".

It will be a great place to meet other cachers and look for a cache or two. FYI Johnson County is either the most or second most cache populated county in Arkansas.

If you are interested please go to the cache page and click on the "Watch This Cache" button in the upper right of the page. This will cause an email to be sent to you each time there is a note posted to the cache and we can better keep you informed.

Tonight we have approximately 70 committed people and can use another 100. Be there or be square.....poppy

Yo folks, "give it up" for Golfnutz and Nonnipoppy. What a great gathering and opportunity to make connection with those we chat with "online" throughout the year. Hope this turns into an annual event. SJClimber

I'm sorry that I missed the event. It seems I always have to work whenever there is an event. I will make sure I am there next time. After reading the logs it looks like everyone enjoyed themselves. I'm beginning to wonder if I need to change my career so that I can do more geocaching.

I agree with idratherbehiking...I always seem to work where there is an event as well...

I was sad I had to work. :cry: Fortunately my field of work is conducive to geocaching hehe...Glad everyone enjoyed themselves. I will meet y'all some other time. Be careful out there!!

Yep, it was a great event! I don't know how, but I missed meeting several of you. However, I did get to talk to several. In case anyone is wondering, let me just say that we've got a great group of geocachers here in Arkansas!

Golfnutz and nonnipoppy, thanks SO MUCH for all you did to make this event happen. It is MUCH appreciated!!!

Are We Doing it Again.... (next year)?

As I recall last fall Nonnipoppy and Golfnutz presented a problem to be solved :? and as of January 21, 2005 approximately 14:30 hours the problem finally had all the variables worked out in the following equation: :D
A - B + C - D + 41E + 100F + G + H + I - 4J + 3K + L = X

A=Event :idea:
B=Cussing :evil:
D=Gnashing of Teeth :(
E=Caches 8)
F=Cachers(young and younger) :D
G=Prizes :D
H=Decorations :)
I=Good Food :D
J=Calories of Chocolate Cake etal 8O
K=Visitors from at least 3 other States :)
L=Go Guard and Thanks :D


For extra credit: Show your work. Use your 'gift' and place those caches in your new cache 'gift' containers, get out the word to CITO, make Arkansas proud to be a caching State, introduce someone new to caching this year, and make caching better by your fairness to the game and to others.

Does anyone know how many attended this event?
This number will always be useful when approaching or even thanking the "powers-that-be", like I'm doing right now.

Last count I heard was 110.

We had a few late commers that did not sign but poppy is using 110 for a final number. The following is our log for the event:

Our heartfelt thanks to Golfnutz and all the others that worked so hard and so well to make this event go smoothly.

To the kind generosity of those who donated time, prizes, food, money and effort we salute you. You are what this is all about. The fellowship, the stories, and the friendship is what makes this such a special group.

Many thanks to those that drove for many hours just to be with us, we really appreciate you.

Planning has already commenced for "The Third Time Is The Charm, The Third Ever Arkansas River Valley Geocaching Meet and Greet and Double Throw Down Whomp De Do". Be on the lookout for it next spring perhaps a bit later so we can have better weather.

We tried to get around to meet each attendee and thank them for coming. Sorry if we missed anyone.

Hope to see you guys next year.....nonnipoppy Clarksville Ar
