Chili Feed & Potluck - The WGA will be making a large quantity of chili. (This will be "normal" chili with meat in it. Nothing super hot, spicy, or exotic.) We will also have hot beverages (coffee, cocoa, and tea), water, and will provide all necessary tableware (plates, cups, plasticware). We are asking participants to bring a dish to pass / share based on the first letter of their last name as follows:
- Last name A-H: salad, fruit, and/or vegetables
- Last name I-P: chips, pretzels, and/or snacks
- Last name Q-Z: dessert or cookies
The chili will be available starting around 12:30pm until the event ends at 6. So come for lunch or dinner or both!
Bonfire - We expect most of the participants will hang around outside at our large bonfire. Some benches will be available for sitting around the fire, but you may want to bring your own lawn chairs.
Permanent Geocaches - As always, hunting permanent caches in the local area is encouraged. There is one cache within walking distance of the station, and 50+ within 5 miles. Cross-country ski and snowshoe trails and numerous geocaches are available at the nearby Lapham Peak State park.
Meet The 2011 WGA Board - Newly elected members of the WGA Board of Directors will be announced in mid-February, and we expect most or all of them to be at the event. If you have any ideas / suggestions for the organization, this would be a good time to share them... the Board will having their annual "kickoff" meeting the next day.
Geocoins - The 2010 WGA Geocoins will be available for purchase at this event. This may be the last chance to add this beautiful geocoin to your collection.
Pathtags - There are just a handful left of the sets of 2010 WGA Pathtags. They will be gone fast.
- Alcoholic beverages ARE permitted (you can bring your own adult beverages, but not any to share)
- Park only in designated areas or off to the side along entrance road
- No dogs or other pets allowed on property
The WGA asks that this event be logged only once. The practice of multiple logging of temp caches is no longer condoned by the WGA or considered to be a good practice by much of the geocaching community.
