I'm going to defer that answer to gotta_run who'se taken command of the game in 2009 and has the most stories to share. Good time to get the ball rolling on it though and I think an important even to continue hosting.

Looking forward to seeing a bunch of Lonely cachers again this year, but we thought the hosting honors went to the person who owned the most Lonely caches during the year. No lonely caches, no Lonely Cache game . . . QED, s|s is the permanent host of this event, yes? wink

Yeah, yeah.. judging by the heavy purple cluster over the valley, there's no arguing that point!

Since the event was hosted here last year and many traveled through some pretty intense weather, I was kinda hoping to centralize the location this time around. Portage, Madison, Stevens Point? I know there's no way to accommodate all the players and those in the Northwest are always at a distinct distance disadvantage, but I'd like to hear what others who might attend have to say about moving it to the middle of the state this year.

Wisconsin Dells?

s|s, I don't think you have to worry about the NW cachers. I don't think there is a whole lot Lonely seekers in these parts. But i do appreciate your concern on the matter.

The Dells in Midwinter can be fun. Lots of indoor waterparks to take advantage of and the traffic is far more tolerable. Either location suites me fine. Since you've stepped up to the challenge of hosting the event, I think the best bet would be to pick a date at the end of January and then submit a Poll using, say, 5 centrally located cities to see where most of the people are willing to travel or prefer to go. Keep in mind that last year, weather was a factor in some not showing, but geocachers as a whole are hard to dissuade and many more showed up than I anticipated, given the poor weather. Expect a pretty good turnout. Judging from this month's competition, lots of people are getting into it!

If the Event is at an Eating Establishment, lodging would be optional.
But warm water in the cold winter sounds pretty good! Cool

If you are looking at January 23 in the Dells, that weekend is the Flake-Out Festival, which has been moved this year to the area near the outlet mall--Buffalo Phil's and Knuckleheads. Doesn't mean the event can't be held in the the Dells then (might even be a plus for some), just more people and activity, maybe less room availability.

I'm not even sure what sort of annual event you guys are talking about. If this event is open to everyone, I may be able to come. Our kids have Monday (1/25) off from school so there is a good probability we will be in the Dells that weekend.
