So here we are closing in on December…the weather in Indiana is… Indiana-like, and the question on most Geocacher’s minds is something like “So what should I buy my favorite cacher for the holidaze?” I guess we’ll need to come up with a cool gift giving guide some time or just link to the one on GroundSpeak, but for right now I think it’s pretty safe to just stick with the events in Indiana as the stand when this was posted. Geo Secret Santa is back so be ready for some holiday fun with Jolly old St. Signal.
The last day to sign up to be eligible to participate on the Secret Santa gift exchange is Saturday, December 6th, 2014. Secret Santa sign up will end officially on December 7th, midnight. See Secret Santa Geocaching Style – 2014 for further information.

Secret Santa Geocaching Style – 2014
by GeoSecretSanta | GC5GT7G | Indianapolis
Note from GeoSecretSanta:
Requirements for logging “will attend” for Secret Santa…
1) If you are a team, add number of adults/children (age of children/gender).
2) ADD YOUR SIDE OF TOWN – North, South, East, or West
NOTE: If you do NOT wish to participate on the gift exchange, but still want to attend, you are welcome to. Please contact me personally, because I may ask you to be my Elf
I will draw names and let you know who you got – Expect a contact email from me no later than December 8th.
Now the REALLY fun part!
The game period…
There will be 4 different pre-defined locations for dropping your Secret Santa gifts — all in the Indianapolis area. The locations will be on each side of town. I am currently working on setting these up. The reason for being pre-defined is that the locations have to be easily accessible so children can also participate. The coordinates for these caches will be given to you by email when the time comes.
The game will be played during the period from 12/09/14 to 12/19/14. During this period, place a little gift or two for your person in one of the pre-defined locations. There is no limit of little gifts you can give, and little gifts can also be simple things…like a Christmas card, etc. Be sneaky…let your giftee wonder who you are!
***VERY IMPORTANT!*** Contact me when you place a gift so I can post an announcement on the event page to let your person know that he/she should visit their predetermined gift exchange box.
The Final Exchange…
The final exchange will be held on Saturday, December 20th, 2014 Time = 10am – 12pm.
Please bring food/drinks to share in the final exchange event day – let’s do brunch this time!!!
Your total spending guideline for each person should be $20.00. This should include the little gifts and the final gift exchange.
If you’d like to be one of Santa’s elves and would like to make a donation to a prize drawing, please contact me.
Let the reindeer games begin! HO! HO! HO!
