Geocaching Events for September 2014

So the month kind of begins with an ending.  As the Fall Picnic Planning Team put it on the cache page “All good things must come to an end. We’ve all heard it before but the Planning Team has been struggling with how to say it. The Fall Picnic Planning Team has made a very hard decision. Unanimously, the team has decided to retire from hosting the annual event. The picnic is near and dear to our hearts but it is time for us to take a much need break and just sit back and enjoy our love of geocaching for a while.” So this is your last time to compete in Geo-Survivor, and enjoy the fun of getting together in September.  Thanks to everyone who over the years has made this such a wonderful event… and now the weather.

Geocaching Events for August 2014

I’m a little nostalgic for the old days when summer actually lasted until September… but for many families August marks the start of school (for some July).  As many people head home let’s hope for some more exciting caching events.  I know September will bring about the end of an era as the Fall Picnic Planning Team calls it quits.  We know it has been a monumental effort to put on such a wonderful event and hope that someone (not me) decides to take on the event for next year.

Geocaching Events for July 2014

Another slightly late posting… but since it looks like most people are on vacation there really isn’t a lot to choose from, so enjoy the nice weather (if you’ve got nice weather) and go out and find some caches.  Challenge yourself a bit, but stay safe.

Geocaching Events for June 2014

Better late than never… Something about other things getting the way (like the end of school, the Indy PopCon, and just stuff (like my cat falling asleep on the keyboard).  The biggest thing happening this month is probably the World Wide Flash Mob on June 7th.  While many of these are great events and very clever (kazoo marching bands, banana phones, etc.) I always find it amusing that many cachers gather within feet of the location chatting,checking their phones, watches, and GPS units then when the time comes amble over sign the log, and then talk for 30 or 40 minutes…  We can do better!  The idea of a flash mob is to surprise the muggles and then disappear into the crowd, not make them call the police because a bunch of strange people are loitering.  Definition of Flash Mob: a group of people mobilized by social media to meet in a public place for the purpose of doing an unusual or entertaining activity of short duration. Muggles scratch their heads and go “What just happened?” If you want to chat, pick a meeting place after the mob. Here are some examples of great Flashmobs- http://youtube-trends.blogspot.com/2011/04/10-most-viewed-flash-mobs-of-all-time.html  Let’s see if we can do that this time around.  If it’s just to sign the log, eat a bag of M&M’s, and get a photo, let’s work on creating another category – the Micro Event.

Stepping away from the soapbox… Next month in Northern Ohio is Midwest Geobash- if you missed GeoWoodstock last month, this is another opportunity to get a Mega Event.  That said it’s Summer!  So time to cache!

Geocaching Events for May 2014

Well May comes and almost goes before I get anything posted…  Sorry for the delay the end of April is a little hectic so I finally get things posted.  The really big events for May are the Indiana Spring Picnic, and the World Wide Flash Mob.  I’ll add GeoWoodstock in Missouri since it is the closest Mega event to Indiana this month.  As the temperatures turn warmer have a great time out on the trails and remember to stay hydrated!

Things should start happening on May 21st and end the 25th- the actual event is on the May 24th. with some of the updated guidelines it will be interesting to see how that effects the number of cursory events at Woodstock.

Geocaching Events for March 2014

So we survived February and got to the point where we started to think 20 degrees was “shorts weather.” Let’s all try to remember this in August!  I’m not sure what the weather will bring during March, but since the high school boys basketball finals are on March 29 I think it’s fair to assume that we still have some bad weather ahead of us.

As for events to plan for in the area-

Registration & Hotel Information

MOGA (Midwest Open Geocaching Adventure) is happening in Central Ohio which is pretty close (I’ve been known to drive to Columbus for lunch).  Registration for that event ends March 15th.  Things will start happening on March 27, with the actual event on the 29th.  I would suggest making it to the opening on the 28th.  Check their website for all the details.  This is a great event but in my opinion not a great one for day trippers since it is really competition based.  That’s not saying the area is full of caches, but I think participants end up having a lot more fun.

February 2014 Geocaching Events

Some weather we’ve been having?  I hope that all the cachers throughout Indiana have taken the appropriate precautions during these extreme conditions.  On some days in January a 1/1 was really a 5/5.  So let’s all stay safe out there and if we really need to cache consider enjoying some time in a state where they wear parkas when the outside temperature is in the 60′s.

February looks almost a bleak as January as more cachers hibernate (or vacation in places where they wear parkas when it is in the 60′s) We’ll try to keep this updated as we learn about more but remember you can do this yourself by clicking on the “Newest in Indiana” link on your profile page at Geocaching.com.  We are starting to see some Earth Day CITOs creep onto the calendar and as we look into the future let’s not forget the fun that is the Spring Picnic!  If you are into some competition (along with fun).

Heads Up about Upcoming (and nearby) Mega-Events

MOGA (Midwest Open Geocaching Adventure) is happening in Central Ohio which is pretty close (I’ve been known to drive to Columbus for lunch).  Registration for that event ends March 15th.  Things will start happening on March 27, with the actual event on the 29th.  I would suggest making it to the opening on the 28th.  Check their website for all the details.  This is a great event but in my opinion not a great one for day trippers since it is really competition based.  That’s not saying the area is full of caches, but I think participants end up having a lot more fun.

Don’t forget that GeoWoodstock is close enough this year, just make sure to get your hotel room booked soon as hotels are filling up from what I’ve heard.  If you’ve never been to a Mega-Event this is a great one to attend. things start happening on May 21st and end the 25th- the actual event is on the May 24th.

New Geocaching Event Guidelines

I pulled this wonderful synopsis of the new guidelines from a post the Hoosier Reviewer had made and decided (since I was home due to “extreme cold weather”) I’d share it with all of you!

The geocaching guidelines for events were updated today, and a few changes have been made. Here are the important high points:

1. All events, including CITO and “flash mobs” must now have both a start & end time listed on the page. That doesn’t necessarily mean everyone has to disperse and go home at that time, rather it’s to give everyone an idea of a time frame when the event actually will take place. As a general reminder, people are NOT required to stay the entire listed time. Even if someone shows up at the posted event time / location and leaves 5 minutes later, they can log the event as attended. People are not required to purchase anything, or pay for admittance into a venue to log an event. And as before, signing a logbook is NOT required to log as attended.

2. Multiple events or a sequence of events, at basically the same location at the same day and time, or near the same time should now be listed as one single event only. As an example; a day long event with a breakfast event, a BBQ event in the afternoon, and finishing the night out with a bonfire event, all occurring that same day within the general area of the listed main event will no longer be published as separate events. Just list them as separate activities and times within the main single event, with additional waypoints if necessary.

3. All events must meet the Commercial guidelines for normal cache listings. You can include basic information about the location including the name and address. Donations and legitimate costs can be mentioned, but no links to menus or the venue website. If you’re wanting to sell items at an event, only geocaching.com items/trackables can be mentioned on the event page itself. Mentioning event sponsors are OK, but links to those sponsor commercial websites are not allowed.

As a side note, CITO events will not be published immediately before or after an event (or vice versa), at or near that main event location. For example, cleaning up after a picnic event in a park is a normal and expected activity, and should not be a separate CITO event at that location. CITO events should stand on their own.

Thanks,

January 2014 Geocaching Events

Happy New Year!  kind of snuck up on me with all the visiting family and traveling that comes with the holidaze.  Didn’t get as much caching in as I would have liked, but that happens sometimes.

As for events with winter comes weather and sometimes it is frightful outside.  January looks like it will be reminding us what winter is like, so stock up on your French Toast supplies and we ready for some frigid temperatures.  This also causes a fewer number of events, so as of the new year here’s what we have:

January 1, 2014
