February 2022 – Event Update

We’ve got so much to tell you!

Geo-Art – The Saint

If you have been looking around Townsville on the caching map recently you may have noticed our Mega Geo-Art has gone live! It is none other than the Saint from Castle Hill, a prominent landmark and one that is celebrating it’s 60th anniversary in 2022. In the art you will find a variety of puzzles from your simple to the complex and just the hint of a dastardly doozy as well – remember to look at the letterboxes as well. If you haven’t started, maybe gather your brains trust and get to work on the solving. Here is a bookmark to get you started.

Welcome Event

Welcome to Townsville! We have a family friendly get together event planned for Good Friday starting from 6pm.  This will be a perfect time to sit around with old and new friends, swap some stories and most importantly make some plans for your time in the North.  We will have a couple of food vans on site so you can enjoy something to eat while you socialise.  Please note this is an alcohol free event. Make sure you log your will attend at GC9NB5C.

Trivia Night

Speaking of brains trust have you organised your table for the Trivia event (GC8HMY0) on Saturday night? This will be our main social event of the Mega weekend and sure to be fun as we put you through 7 rounds of the hard hitting questions. We do request that you not only put a ‘Will Attend’ on the event, but register your team, whether 6 people or a single / duo looking to join a table, you can do this via the link on the cache page or by clicking here. Food vans will be on site and the bar will be open!

CITO – Rowes Bay Tree Planting

At 7:00am on Sunday you can give back to our host city, by joining in with the Townsville City Council to re-vegetate the Rowes Bay Esplanade after it was impacted by the 2019 flood. We ask that you wear sun protective clothing, and you must have enclosed footwear, no thongs please. Our tasks will be digging holes in the sand, mixing potting mix and planting the council provided trees. Log your will attend at GC9NB63.

Farewell Event

All good things must come to an end, and this marks the conclusion of the Townsville Mega.  Come down to the Mega site at 12pm and bid farewell to one and all as we go our merry caching ways, whether its homeward bound or exploring the region further.  Log your will attend GC9NB6G.
