Don't know what it'll be named, not sure where ground zero will be, but it will be in the Princeton/Tulameen area on the July Long Weekend.

At a minimum a road rally portion(similiar to tailspin) & a float down the river portion will be included.

More info in the next month as we start to figure things out, and we will be rounding up more "official" planning volunteers. When I'm ready for that I will post and ask for those who are interest to come forward - at this point I'm enjoying some peace and quiet.. lol yes the honeymoon phase. We're off to cabin in a few hours for the weekend.

If anyone is planning a wedding and would like to have it that weekend - we will be happy to add it in .. Smile

I am really tempted by the 65dollar poker tables at Rona this weekend. Blow up next years symbol and put in the center it would make an awesome prize for geo-poker. Smile

We're waiting on confirmation of ground zero availability - as soon as we have that then we're good to go for "formal planning" - all I can say right now is let the name lead your imagaination.. he he he

But as always the weekend will be what you want it to be - you can tour around to catch up on missed caches or take part in new challenges - challenges that will get you coordinates he he..

Or float down a river, watch movies - hang with friends.. your choice.. Smile

I will help ..poker and another letterbox.. I do drop of my daughter a few weeks before the event weekend and would be willing to help out with some last minute stuff.

I love the idea.. of floating down the river we saw a group of four floating down with a floating cooler with wobbly pops.. looked like alot of fun.

For poker I will stay near camp this time and have a better start... some didn't play because there was only a few winners... I have a new idea.
I think limiting the poker tourney to 40 players for one.
Two coin buy in again.
But this time one coin goes to the final pot for the top four-five players and each player keeps one of there coins in front of them as a bounty if you knock someone out of the tourney you get their coin.

Ground Zero has been arranged!

We will be renting a private piece of property on the Tulameen River -

N 49° 30.087 W 120° 40.434

For those that were part of the first year, we will be returning to the original camping location & have made arrangements for use of the full area for the weekend. For those that weren't - it provides a beautiful setting along the river, great for dogs & kids as they can play right there.. Smile

The location is extremely large (and no sage brush in the camping area)

You will be welcome to bring dogs - however that being said they MUST be on a leash at all times during the event please.

We will work on set up etc as the year progresses and bring you continual updates.

We do not have a website set up as yet for the event, that will be coming over the next few months, however we have established a facebook page that you can "like" so you can stay in the loop on what is happening between now and then.

Now ground zero is established - off to do some planning.. Smile

I am willing to help out. Perhaps support the GPX files process for all participants? Put out some caches in a hiking area?

Thank you all very much for the offers of help, next year's event will be taking a different spin then previous years (We need a year of sanity) and will be focussed much more on the fun aspect then on launching a large number of new caches.

It will be a more "earn" your cordinates approach - eg few different rally formats, where a certain amount of people can complete each leg each day (eg 4 or 5 "legs"), you get to pick 1 each day over the weekend and we will have a maximum of 15 teams for each leg each day.

This will help ensure people are spaced out..So there won't really be a gpx file for next year, other then the PQ's for those that are in 'clean-up' mode.

Tasks to earn your coordinates will vary - but perhaps bringing your own hatchet, shovel or slingshot could work in your favor.. lol (no worries we will not be breaking any geocache rules.. )

And any water activites (such as floating down river) will not require GPS to float down river with you - we don't want any lost ones.

One more idea came to me... the potlock dinners haven't run real smooth. I have enjoyed my dinner but how about.... A Chili Cook Off Challenge.
You just go around with a bowl and taste a few around the campground. Have three-five people that are judges.

If there is another dish worthy of a cook off then there could be two choices
