Geocaching Event Set

Here I am in Spokane...NCCE 007 should be fantastic.

A group of local geocachers gathered this evening to prepare for the geocaching event. We met at the Northern Lights Brewery from 6 - 8:30 for dinner and planning. What a great group of local volunteers! 8 folks showed up to help make the geocaching event a success. We loaded up the 69 GPS units (37 Garmin eTrex & 32 Magellan eXplorist 210s) with batteries and new waypoints. In addition, I gave an overview of the rules of the game for the conference.

I am continually impressed & amazed with the generosity of geocachers! Some are even taking time off work to help out! We handed out a few prizes tonight but the grand prize a Magellan GPS Crossover will go to the winner of our game on Friday

The planning of this event took place entirely on our wiki on Wikispaces. Many of us had not met before this evening but yet most of our work had been completed online. We also used Skype to communicate.

Special thanks to our other donors: Podcacher, Magellan, Geoteaming & Groundspeak.
