GC5AXBG - Hakliva

This event is being held to help people achieve the seven souvenirs of August.

While I was looking for ways to attend an event to achieve the sixth and ultimately the seventh souvenir, I noticed that there was no way that I would be able to attend an event... So I worked up the courage to submit my own. I realized that if I were to chose a location in or near a dog park, then geo-dogs could benefit from a little off- leash socialization as well!

Saturday, August 30, 2014
Start: 10:21 pm

GC5AT0N - doingitoldschool

A chance to get together, enjoy some coffee (or what have you) and talk about our common hobby.

Since I can't make it to the earlier event this month, I thought I'd hold one of my own.

Need a tip on a local cache? Got a caching story to tell? Just want to hear more about our enjoyable pastime? Come on out.

I might even have a door prize (not a real door).

We'll get together at 10 am, and stay for an hour, just in case some sleepy heads are late. This should give us time to hit a cache or two before lunch!

This event is being held as a last chance for everyone to get the event souvenir for August. This will be a casual time where coffee and dessert are provided.

GC5B2YP - Bike_4_me

Come out and celebrate the End of my Daily Streak.
Just like KeeGee before me, it's time to end this, the daily streak.

September 7, 2014
7:00pm - 9:00pm
Garbonzo's Restraunt
1792 Pembina Highway, Winnipeg

This will be day 1,134. I needed to pick a date to end the streak and decided that being exactly 100 days off KeeGee's streak of 1,234 would be just right. Plus there were already a lot of events in August.
So I hope you can come out and have dinner (half price pizza on Sundays) or a drink.

What can be greater than meeting up with another cacher? Meeting up with a lot of other cachers, swapping stories, getting hints on caches you cannot find and enjoying food all at the same time.

And of course giving trycacheus a bad time about his caches.

What happens at a geocaching event? You will meet others who share your love, hobby, addiction. You can share your most difficult, most fun or .....
