I hear ya! Isn't that just crazy?
I was thinking of how annoying they must be too, as they block the aisles and refuse to move. I would imagine, as part of a group of geo cachers, that as this event is organized some careful consideration must be given as to location, and the type of activity involved, as it will draw attention to geocaching overall.
I suppose we must follow certain geo etiquette!
So I guess we can be fairly odd, but not overly annoying! That sounds like us doesn't it? Very Happy

Yes... that's an accurate description
If we do freeze up somewhere, we should be holding our GPSr's high.... get passers-by wondering what's in our hands! heehee - i can't wait <i have no life>

I'd take place in a freeze mob ... but not with fishing equipment (for 2 reasons, I don't own any, and I don't believe in it). But other than that! I'm totally in.

You got it T! That would be a good day!

The GPS idea is great! Hold it high, tracking the sattelites while we wear aluminum foil over our heads! Laughing

I need a life right along with ya! Rolling Eyes

I will just have to be with y'all in spirit if it ends up being April 1.
I will be "fooling" around in Jamaica that day

Might I make a suggestion than Dani?

How about, we all bring our bobbers and rods Cool (that sounds good doesn't it?) and YOU get to be the catch of the day? Razz No real harm will come to anyone or any fish, and you get to wear the mermaid suit!
Razz

Sorry...couldn't resist! And I KNOW you would find it a tempting idea! Cool

OR Dani...We could be the frozen fishing freaks, and you be one lone protester, frozen in place with your sign! Laughing

It's all so ridiculous, it could work! Smile

PM for you Wink

I could be sitting in a lawn chair with a "Give Peas a Chance!" sign ...

I'm pretty sure the city of Winnipeg is not ready to see me in a mermaid costume....

The freeze idea is a really good one. I'm sure you master minds of the MBGA will come up with a great idea related to same. Since the very one who brought this great idea forth is not going to be available on the 1st of April, I hope we can consider a different date. Besides, although it is a day associated with the foolish, it is also a day when everyone would expect such a thing.

I find, the best time to be a fool, is on every other day of the year when people would generally expect much more of me! Very Happy
I think... Confused

Take now for instance...

I got my laugh for the evening *B-fly* !!!
If this event comes about, have it any time. April 1st is a good date, really... if I miss it, well, there will be others, I'm sure Very Happy

Just wanted to let people know that they don't have to wait for the MBGA to mount any event. You can have your own event. However, you may want to bounce the date off of the MBGA Event Guru (T) to see if the date is already taken.
