Hello fellow geocachers,
as you may see, I've just joined BC geocaching forum (although I had an account on main site for a while), and I need an advice immediately
I've never organized any events. However, the opportunity have arisen two weeks ago, when my son made it to Provincials (speed swimming).
Provincials is a big thing for swimmers, and people come from all over the province. There will be about 1200 swimmers, and probably just as many parents and siblings. So, I thought, what are the odds that someone's parent is a geocacher? Do you think they would appreciate little on-the-side event, apart from cheering their kids? Provincials go on for a whole week, but speed swimming alone takes three days (Friday to Sunday), and it's in Mundy park (Coquitlam) - home to many great geocaches.
I'm a parent of Coquitlam Shark - home club for this event. Technically, the region is hosting an event, but it's our club pool, and I'll be on duty for at least two days. I can still sneak out, though, for a quick chat and meet & greet.
Being myself, I was putting it off for too long. Is a week too short for an event notice? People will be there anyway, so there is no need to specifically go anywhere.
What do you think, guys?
