Burns Park Cache Bash
Well all i can say is WOW!!!
When Les and I stated working on this we thought it would be HOT and we expected around 30 maybe 40 people. We ended up with 85 people for the day, some participating in the bash some just hunting local caches and some just stopping in to say hi as they had other things to do for the day. We made some changes by having ARKGEO adopt the event. We spent a lot of time planning and get ready. Boy do i ever appreciate all the other events i went to before much more. It was a lot of work but well worth it. the hardest part for me was not being able to chase the caches. I love watching people socialize and interact. Discussing hides, finds, trips, tips and caching ethics. a lot of friends were made, got to catch up and spend more quality time with each other.
In the madness of it all you will always forget something and i forgot a big one. We had gotten a achievement coin for Fab5williscaln for making his 366th day in a row of caching. Saturday was 365 and the Cito was the 366 but it would have been nice to recognize him with everyone there and for that i'm sorry. We did get him his coin on Saturday.
The event wasn't perfect and the next one wont be either but I personally learned a lot and it will make the next event better. Please feel free to send me any feedback as I love constructive advise.
thanks to everyone that was able to make it, with out you it wouldn't have been any fun and that's why we cache in the first place.
I use multi-billion dollar military satellites to find Tupperware in the woods, what your hobby?
