Hello everyone,
We just have a quick favour to ask of anyone who would be willing to help out and who is free this Saturday, February 10th, at exactly 12:00 noon CST????
We are going to be in Ottawa and planning on attempting GCD838 "Wave the Flag", a webcam cache on Parliament Hill. We were wondering if there was someone (or several someones, the more the better, just in case) who could capture our webcam picture at precisely 12:00 noon CST on Saturday and then send the picture in an email to me at waynecarrier[at]shaw[dot]ca ....

The webcam is available at http://www.parliamenthill.gc.ca/text/hillcam_e.html

If anyone is able to help us out, it would be greatly appreciated! I'll buy you beer! (Junglehair, I'll buy you two!)

Thanks so much everyone! Happy Reading Week!

Wagonmaker

Not sure what I'm doing this Saturday, but if I'm home at noon, I can help you out as well.

You can contact my son, CGARR046, who lives in Nepean. He should be around on Saturday. He's a poor student Boo hoo! so can't afford to do much else on a weekend but study. I can give you his cell if interested.

This sounds like a great way to get an out-of-town webcam. I'm usually home at noon on Sat so I will also capture a pic. I looked at the webcam & it's not a very good picture at night.
Wagonmaker, be sure to let us know how it all turns out.

Quite a few people spotted us and sent pics. Thanks everyone for all your help! We had a great time logging this cache! You can check it out at GCD838. Sorry, I don't have time to get the website.
Thanks, everyone!

Glad you got your pics Wagonmaker. I totally spaced on this and didn't even think about it until some time on Sunday.
