Mark Your Calendar's!!!
Here's an event for everyone to put on their watchlist. I went to it last year and had a blast. SLAGA (St Louis Area Geocaching Association) works very hard on this event, and have cachers from all over the country planning to attend (Minnesota and Virginia to name a couple). There will be individual, couple, and team events similar to last year, but using a slightly different format. They also will have a few things for the younger cachers to do at the event.
I was up in Jefferson city this past weekend attending an event there, and was able to get a little more information (i.e. intel) from some of the event organizers and staff. I have it on good authority that the events won't be as strenuous as last year. They are also planning on having 20 to 30 logable caches set up in the park for this weekend long event. They have a special cache page for logging temporary event caches.

I would really like for Arkgeocaching to be well represented at this event. Last year I had to team with the group from Minnesota for the team event (BTW we took 1st place , scoring all 20 punches, and also finishing with the fastest time ). I think it would be great if we could have 1 or 2 teams from Arkansas there.
Even if the competition isn't your cup of tea, what could be better than getting together with a couple hundred other people who share this obsession, for a fun weekend of caching, camping, caching, camradiere, and have I said caching yet?!?
