Postby yogi57 » Mon 2012-02-20, 19:44:54

Are we going to have a picnic this year?

[hr]
EDIT:
Yes! Yogi secured the facility again for us this year for April 14th.

The GC Event page has been submitted and hopefully will be approved without all the details worked out yet:

From what folks have posted on Facebook, it looks like either the 2nd or 3rd weekend in May would be the best time. Yogi, you get it booked & I'm sure it will get put together! Suchanana rocked the Holiday Shindig!!!!!

It is nice that NWOGEO planning is happening on the NWOGEO site so all members have access.

Just a thought, there is an indoor shelter house at Riverbend with electricity and a fireplace. It does lack a kitchen. There is also the lodge at riverbend, but I think it is a little pricey. Just thought it would be a little closer to Findlay and be a change of scenery.

I have no problem with Litzenburg, there are a lot of caches in the park owned by NWOGEO that can/will be moved to allow people new finds.

I believe we get the shelter house at Litzenburg is free to us because Yogi does a Geocaching 101. A little pricy vs. free ......... hummm?

I like what we did last year. That is new caches placed but unpublished (coords provided at the event) and old caches left active till Sunday so people that could hunt both old and new during the event. Using this method the woods and field can provide a reasonable number of caches to hunt without any driving.

Just so I understand
That is the Lodge at Riverbend?
And the shelter house at Litzenburg is at no cost because of the GEO101?
Right?????

This thread started over there because this site was down. When it came back up I was just reiterating what was said over there so anyone NOT on Facebook could catch up. Wasn't meant to exclude anyone, just trying to keep everyone in the loop of what happened while the site was down! :)
