    “This 1time in Paris…” Event / Sat. 1/13/07 GCZFTY

    “This 1Time in Paris…”
    Meet, Greet, Eat, and Cache
    Saturday, January 13th, 2007


    My wife (ddkds) and I would like the opportunity to meet our fellow cachers.

    We will be hosting a meet and greet and caching event here in Paris and hope to get the chance to say “Hello” to many of you.

    When: Saturday, January 13th, 2007 8:30 AM - ????

    Where: First Nation Bank of Paris Community Center 25 East Main Street, Paris AR 72855


    Here is the listing on GC.com : GCZFTY "This 1Time in Paris..." Event Cache

    There will be a meal, contests, temporary caches for the adults and kids, surprises and hopefully a bunch of cache talk and caching.

    There is no cost to attend the event of course but prize donations are welcomed. Please e-mail me if you would like to donate a prize.

    MEAL: The meal will be “pot luck” @ 11:30 AM. Please bring a dish and a 2-liter of your favorite soda. We will have ice, coffee and tea. We will also furnish some hot dogs for the kids. Please call me (479.518.0812), e-mail me (paris1time@yahoo.com), or send me a message with what you plan on bringing and I will list it on the Arkansas Geocachers Association forum.

    PHOTO CONTEST: We love to take photos while out caching and we know many of do also. We thought this would be a great time (especially if the weather does not cooperate) to show those photos off. The contest rules are simple: (1) The submitting cacher must have taken the photo and (2) the photo must have been taken while geocaching. Bring your favorite photo(s) to be displayed (It’s up to you how you present the photo (frame, matted, etc.)). There will be a voting for the favorite in these categories: #1 - Scenic/Nature (Flowers, trees, insects, animals, etc.), #2 - Fun / Crazy Cache or Cache Hunt, and #3 -Just Because (This will be a catch all for other caching photos). Those attending will be allowed to vote for their favorite in each category! (Update 12/11/06: There will be 3 categories. If you plan on bringing a photo to submit for the contest please place a label on the back of the photo/frame with your name, Cache name, and waypoint for the photo.)

    COLORING CONTEST: We would like all of the kids that are attending to either color one of the pictures listed in the “photo gallery” for the listing or draw and color their own geoaching themed picture and bring it to the event. Just select one of the photos in the photo gallery (Coloring Page #1, Coloring Page #2, or Coloring Page #3), print the photo, color it, then bring it to the event! There will be prizes for all those that do. (Update 12/11/06: I will also have copies of the coloring pages, blank paper, and crayons at the event for the kids to color a picture at the event if they wish. If a kid in your party will be coloring a picture for the coloring contest please e-mail me and let me know so I can have plenty of prizes for the kids!)

    TRAVEL BUGS AND GEOCOINS: Bring your travel bugs and geocoins to show off. We have only had the chance to see a few and we would love to see everyone’s. If you plan on bringing geocoins and travelbugs to the event and would e-mail me the details for them we will prepare a list to help people to spend more time looking and sharing than having to write tracking numbers down.

    TEMPORARY CACHES: There will be some temporary caches for the adults and kids to find. Full details are still in the works.

    NEW CACHES: There will be new caches placed in and around the Paris between now and the event. I will be placing and activating a few caches at a time leading up to the event.

    Current Event Schedule

    8:30 AM Registration open, Photo Contest Submissions and Coloring Contest Submissions begin, and Coordinates to Temporary Caches Available

    11:00 AM Voting for Photo Contest will begin

    11:30 AM Meal

    12:30 PM Voting for Photo Contest Ends, Prizes for contests presented

    Please post a “Will Attend” on the Geocaching.com com listing if you plan on coming and tell us how many in your party will be coming so we can plan accordingly. If you plan on attending send me a message or e-mail me the names and screen names of those coming and we will have some nametags already made.

    Please add the listing to your "Watchlist" and watch for updates as the event approaches.
