One Week to Go!

Horses Update

We are loving reading all the Found It logs on the New Dayboro horse geoart! This week however we had to do an update. Please note that due to some safety concerns from nearby land-owners, as they rent their property out for hunting, we have moved Horse 57 & 58.  The puzzles have been updated and an offset is available on the page if you have solved it prior to 22nd March. Please ensure you have the new coordinates before heading out.

COVID19 – Check-in

As you will be aware the global pandemic has placed certain restriction and limitations on events.  We have been very lucky to get this mega up and running.  To make sure we adhere with the current guidelines, we ask that you have some patience with entering the Showground.  Every person will need to check in using the Showground’s QR code – even if you are just popping in for 5 minutes.  Showground QR entry registration needs to be completed each day, and to help with the quick management of this we will have daily colour coded passes. 

You will be required to check in at the front gate each day (yes even if you camped the night before, you need to head back to the gate each day), complete the QR code, show the gate guardians Waz & Vik and receive your day pass.  Keep this on you! Should you go out of the showground, you can flash your day pass to gain quick access.  We may ask you to show your day pass to gain entry to seminars and the trivia event.

Remember we must adhere to QLD Government guidelines, and we need your help to make this happen.

Camping – Pre & Post event

We have been receiving lots of questions regarding pre-event camping.  As we have mentioned, any camping outside of the four days of the Mega Camping; Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday night, is handled by the onsite caretaker.  Again, we do ask that if you are arriving early you try to set up, if possible, in the Area you purchased.  If this is not possible, we will ask that you move to your designated area once the Mega begins.  We have areas that have sold out, so you will have to move if not in your spot. People have purchased specific areas for various reasons that we must honor. We appreciate your understanding.

Last weekend some areas of the Showground were closed for camping due to flooding.  However, with the new dry weather we should be good for Easter with the forecast looking like more dry days ahead.  The caretaker suggested that people throw in their long power leads just in case there are still some damp areas that need to be avoided. 

Just as a heads up for the super early arrivers, there is an event at the Showground this weekend, a VW Show and Shine, with three days of camping included as part of their event. 

In the meantime, take another look at our showground map and reorientate yourself.

Millicent Mega Catch-up

The committee of the GeoVenture2020 are excited to bring you some information about their Mega Event (GC82DAN) happening in Millicent from 1st – 4th October. Join them for a pre-event lunch at S27 16.299 E152 56.204 from 12:00pm to 1:00pm on Friday 2nd April to catch up with committee members and learn about all the fun things that the South Australian Crew will have in store for geocaching later in the year.

Caching Supplies

On Saturday and Sunday, you will be able to shop for all your geocaching related items as Brisbane’s own Caching Supplies will have set up their shop in the Main Hall.  Be sure to stop past and support a local business.

Black Cat Creations

Kelly will be onsite over the weekend and ready to take any last minute CacheQLD merchandise orders and talk to you about creating some of your own signature items. If your after our official merchandise you can still order from our online webstore.

Merchandise!

Speaking of merchandise, how can you collect yours?
We are having two sessions per day for collection.  The morning session is from 7:00 – 9:00am and the evening session is from 4:00 – 6:00pm from inside the Main Hall.  This should give everyone plenty of time to collect their purchased items. We thank you once again for supporting our event.  If for some reason you are not able to collect your items, and to avoid having to pay postage, we suggest that you try to organise someone to collect your items for you, in this case please email admin@cacheqld.com to let us know who to release your items to.

Golden Pineapple Award!

We all have a story or two that we can laugh about, after the fact. The embarrassing moments when you felt like a goose. The moments where your shoes were sucked off by mud and you stood on a crab, or perhaps you went to complete a Wherigo and realised you left your phone at home! Maybe you fell off your kayak at an event in a most undignified way?! Whatever it is, we want to hear it! We will publish your story anonymously (to protect the innocent) and have them on display in the main hall for attendees to vote on their favourite story. The winner with the most votes before the closing ceremony on Monday will win the coveted Golden Pineapple trophy!

Remember – it does not have to be your golden story, you just had to be there! Please email your stories to admin@cacheqld.com before midnight Thursday 1st April to be in the running.

Adventure Labs

Are you ready for 50 Adventure Labs!  We sure are!  We are releasing our Brisbane Tourist Adventure Lab in the next few days. Event Labs are time limited & this series will be only available for three weeks. Another 40 Adventure labs will be released at 9am on Friday 2nd April.  There will be several gadget labs dotted around the Showgrounds and in the Main Hall and we ask that you treat them carefully so everyone can have a turn.  Please remember that these 40 Adventure labs will be turned off at 9pm on Monday 5th April.  The QR codes for the 40 onsite Adventure labs will be available in the Main Hall. Below is the QR code for the tourist lab for when it becomes live.

Breakfast Update

If you ordered a Country Women’s Association (CWA) breakfast option through the CacheQLD shop you have received an email, and refund from us this week. Unfortunately, they are no longer able to offer their services. But do not fear, you will not have to cache on an empty stomach! By a wonderful coincidence, brand new geocachers, and food truck owners, Luke & Madelaine are staying onsite all weekend and bringing their van along!

Seminars

 We are bringing you all your favourite type of seminars:

Cachetur.no Hosted by KittyKatch

Friday 4-5pm
Cachetur.no is a trip planning tool for geocachers. As an ambassador for the app, Kath will share her knowledge of how to utilize all the apps best features. Cachetur.no lets you plan geocaching trips of all sizes, near or far, alone or together with others. You can quickly and easily see what caches you have planned and what caches you or any of the trip’s participants own or have found. The script even allows you to see your route directly on the geocaching.com and Project-GC maps and to quickly add new caches to your trip directly from those maps (and cache pages)!

Photography Hosted by The Coffee’s

Friday 5:00 – 6:00pm
Ian from Coffee Table Images was first involved in photography in the late 70s and early 80s although left his passion behind to pursue other endeavors. In 2014, after the removal of a benign brain tumor his neurosurgeon suggested a creative hobby to help with recovery and it was then that he decided to pick up his camera again. Since that time he has had great successes in photography competitions, and is now a judge with the Australian Photographic Judges Association (APJA). In this seminar Ian will cover some photography basics leaving you to walk away with knowledge of many elements of photography.

You can see some of Ian’s work on Facebook under ‘coffeetableimages’.

Reviewer Panel

Saturday 8:30 – 9:30am
Meet and chat with a panel of reviewers! Here you can ask questions about rules and guidelines and get the latest information on what’s happening at HQ!
Submit your questions to admin@cacheqld.com early to increase your chances on getting answered!

Drones – hosted by The Coffee’s

Sunday 4:00 – 5:00pm
Australians are flying drones in record numbers. If you’re flying as a hobby, you don’t need any special training or certification before taking a drone into the air. But that doesn’t mean you should take your new drone out of the box and start flying it immediately. Instead, learn how to use it safely and effectively to get the best images and video, without sacrificing the safety of yourself and others. Ian has completed a Remote Pilot License for Drone photography (RePL). With his background of workplace training and assessing Ian loves helping and teaching others and is looking forward to passing on knowledge of what he has learnt so far!

Puzzles – hosted by Ardom

Sunday 5:00 -6:00 pm
Geocaching novices and pros alike are often daunted by puzzle and mystery caches. Ciphers, enigmatic photos, nonsensical text, or just a blank page — it often isn’t clear what the CO wants or expects you to do, and even less clear how any of it will lead you to a cache. In this seminar, Ardom will cover the basics of puzzle caching!

.

Volunteers

Ask any one of us on the Mega event committee and we will tell you that organising a big geocaching event is lots of fun, but we couldn’t do it without the help of our wonderful volunteers! From our QLD and interstate ambassadors, and guests that offer to help with set up, clean up, listing trackables, moving furniture, directing traffic, and even being on call for cache maintenance! We appreciate your support, and we thank you!

Cal’s Bar

Don’t forget Cal’s Bar will be open both Saturday and Sunday night for refreshments. With a variety of beer, wine, soft drinks and water there’s surely something to quench your thirst as you ponder those trivia questions or get your groove on at the Tropi-Cal party night. A selection of snacks will also be available from the bar. Please be aware the bar operates on a cash system only and it might be handy to have a few cold coins to help with the till.

Itinerary

This is what you have really been reading for, the all-important itinerary and here it is, in all its glory!  Enjoy and we will see you all very, very soon.

May 2020 – Newsletter 05

Event News

It’s been a busy month for the Cache QLD team with plenty of decisions being made and options explored.  So let’s delve into what the team has been up to in the past month and learn about the remainder of our State Ambassadors.

Pathtag Competition – Winner Announced

With several submissions into our pathtag competition the committee had a hard time working through all the great options to narrow it down to the winning design.  After much discussion, we are pleased to announce that it was the “D’Aguilar” entry by Glenn Downes that rose to the top and will feature as one of the event set of tags.

Inspiration for the Dayboro 2021 tag entry, “D’Aguilar” features Cal looking at the hot air balloon high in the sky above the valley, the content from a compilation of tourist sites promoting hot air balloon rides of the scenic D’Aguilar Ranges and across the valleys and foothills where Dayboro lay. This entry spans more than just the Dayboro region as there are several sights for scenic hot air balloon rides throughout Queensland putting the best of what scenery Queensland has on grand display.

Merchandise

Several decisions were made regarding the merchandise for the event – which as I am sure you can agree is super exciting and make it all seem so much more real.  One of our main goals for the event is trying to keep things local and we are pleased to announce our partnership with a local business owner (& geocacher) Kelly from Black Cat Creations to handle the majority of our merchandise. We’ve made decisions on the shirts, (green, grey and metal) these will range in sizes from a mens small up to a 5XL and the ladies from size 8 to 24. We are also looking at caps and of course if you love a great souvenir you can also purchase a customised named car flag to proudly have on display!

There will also be trackables, the pathtag set and two geo-coins to purchase. We are currently investigating setting up the shop and expect this to be open to purchase items (including camping) in a few months.

Ambassadors – Part 2

Last month we brought you the first half of our Ambassadors and today we would like to introduce you the second half of the extended team.

MaccaMob (VIC) David is a retired RAAF Electronics engineer, and Mary a retired RN. We began our caching adventure on 14 April 2002, when we found gmj3191’s “The You Yangs Library Stash”, GC4CD3, with our daughter GeoJo. She in turn had been introduced by our other daughter and her husband, Slider & Smurf. Keeping it all in the family, our son and his family cache as Maccaholics. There have been so many highlights over the years: the very first Victorian Event, and many more Events since, hugs, meeting new friends, and lots of travel in Australia and around the world. One that does stand out was our completion of cache finds in all 50 US States in 2014. Like you, we are confining ourselves at home in maccamob HQ in what will no doubt be the longest ever caching slump, but looking forward to being let loose to meet at some future Event.

AlphaDeltaIndigo (VIC) Hi my name is Adi and I started caching in Sydney in 2013 and got absolutely hooked after attending a GCNSW Association event. I made my first geobuddy at that event. I attended my first Mega Event in SA in 2014 and after many years of attending Mega events & multiple annual June Long Weekend Events in SA, I have a broad circle of caching friends.  My favourite thing about caching is that I get to socialize with people & make friends inter-state and internationally. I can’t wait to see everyone at CacheQLD Dayboro in 2021! It’s going to be epic!

Liz and Bruce (QLD) got their first GPS in 2001.   When Bruce brought it home I asked what is it and what are we going to do with it.  Bruce did not have an answer initially but within a few months he learnt about the new game being played in America called Geocaching.  Little did we know how absorbed we would become in this game over the next two decades.

In 2004 we started a ten year road trip seeing as much of Australia as we could while towing our caravan around.  Geocaching was great in complementing our travels offering adventure, affording us the opportunity to get some exercise and taking us to wonderful places only known by the local cache owner as we passed through their town.

Our caching has taken us to overseas locations as well and it is fun.  We often seek out the virtual caches as the location will have some historical significance or offering something unique thus providing us insight to the area we are visiting.  Of course the power trails in the USA also get our attention especially when they are in the amazing deserts around Nevada or Arizona.

Talking of unique we reckon geocachers are a pretty special group of people. We have met so many like-minded people through this game and our lives would not have been as rich without the friendships we have formed over the many years. We love caching with just the two of us but what fun we have had out caching with friends and then enjoying a chat and a drink come the end of the day.   We view events as a social opportunity with geocaching taking second place.

Freddo is one of South Australia’s early geocachers, having signed up in January 2002. It’s almost impossible to go geocaching in SA and not find a Freddo cache, with over 900 hides. He spent four years from early 2013 onward as the ANZ Earthcache reviewer. His cache ‘Sitting Down on the Job’ in front of Government House, near the North Terrace cultural precinct is the states most visited with just shy of 2000 finds. Spots 2 through 4 in that list are also occupied by Freddo caches. Freddo is currently working on the Millicent Mega due to be held in October 2020 and was previously involved with Oz Mega in 2014.

RideTheGeoWalrus (an obscure Futurama reference) is also a very busy person at this time currently working on bringing us the Millicent Mega in South Australia.  Having been a cacher since 2012, his highlights have included doing the most favoured web cam cache in the world outside Abbey Road Studios, as well as caching in and around the World Heritage Angkor Wat temple complex in Cambodia.

What’s Next

Next month bring us World Environment Day on the Friday 5th June.  We continue celebrate the great environment we play in and this month we look at enjoying the great outdoors with some geocachers best friends, their geo-pups. (In case you were wondering our campground ALL pets are allowed). We also talk further about Cache QLD going green for the environment.

Cache QLD Highlight – 05

Waterways

This month we are celebrating our Waterways!

Us Queenslander’s definitely have a love of paddling down our rivers and creeks collecting caches.  If you search through the Terrain filter on your preferred geocaching app you see plenty of caches pop up in the T4.5-5 range along various creeks and rivers in the South East corner.

Plenty of trails for a longer adventure or a just the quick stand-alone cache.  Many, many occasions of a group floating kayak squad out and about on a grand adventure.  Often there will be call out on Facebook group with an open invitation to join a group attack, this can be a great way to get yourself out meeting people, getting some exercise and of course collecting smiles.

Not only do Queenslanders love caching on the water, but it seems we are also a little fond of cleaning up our waterways with quite a few water based CITO’s organised in the past years.  Of course anytime out on the kayak is a good time to collect any floating rubbish and dispose of it thoughtfully back on land.

Here are a few waterways with trails:
Sunshine Coast: Muru-kutchi Trail, Eenie Creek, Paynter’s Peaceful Paddle, Cooroibah Creek, Cooloothin Creek
Brisbane Region: Four Mile Creek, Jackson Creek, Nudgee Creek, Pine River, Lake Kurwongbah, Lake Samsonvale, Lake Manchester, Lake Wivenhoe
Gold Coast: Coombabah Creek, South Stradbroke Island, Wave Break Island

Of course it should be no surprise that we also have water based Geo-Art! (Yes, we do have an abundance of art).  Both of these current offerings are from 4Andos.  Probably helps that they have a JetSki, but all are accessible by kayak or boat.

Fish and Cache: Is a series of 24 challenging puzzles forming up to create, of course, a fish!  Located in and around the islands to the north of the Gold Coast, you will need to have not only your paddling skills going, but you will find yourself walking some beautiful sandy beaches.  Keep your eyes out some local wildlife as well, with mentions of sighting whales, crabs, stingrays.

Dark Side of the Cache: Is a visually stunning series of 110 caches in the shape of Darth Vader’s helmet based at Lake Somerset.  These are land based caches, however you will need a watercraft to access them all.  The puzzle are sure to delight any Star Wars fans, and of course we all know that May the 4th is Star Wars day, so what better time than now to start to solve these creative puzzles.

How do you pronounce Dayboro?

This question, recently asked by ambassadors Peter & Cat (pprass), quickly had the committee divided … was it:

* Day-bra
* Day-borrow
* Day-bro
* Or something completely different?

We couldn’t agree so we took the question to the locals!
 


With just over 50 replies here is what we learnt … With a respectable 6 votes we have the pronunciation ‘Day-bo-rah’ – sounding like the name Deborah.

With a few votes each we heard: DaybOrO, Day-ber-ahh, Day-bro, Day-burra, Day-bore, Day-borough, and Day-bowrow! Getting only one vote each, are these two gems (and our personal favourites!) Dee-Town, and Da town a yesta-year!

However, the clear winner coming in with a combined 27 votes (over 50% of the total) is ‘day-bra’ or the very similar ‘day-bruh’.

Mystery solved! Thanks for the great question pprass!

Who do you go geocaching with?
My Dad.

What do you like best about geocaching?
I like to go kayaking and climbing trees.  Let’s talk about kayaking (because that happens to match this month’s theme…)!

Do you have your own kayak?
At first, I went in Dads kayak but when I turned 10, I got my own kayak that is green and white.

What was your first kayaking cache like?
It was on a creek and we (Dad and I) found it not long from where we started to kayak. We found it on a tree branch and at first I couldn’t see it and I told Dad “ I want to find it myself” and the next moment I found the cache!

Where else have you kayaked?
Dad and I have been to a lake and on a couple of rivers and creeks.  We have explored hidden pathways off the side of creeks.  After one really long kayak we found hidden door in a tree!

Any other fun kayaking adventures?
One time Dads friends came and kayaked with us but the funny thing was that we had to dress up! It was really cool to see what the other people had dressed up as. When we stopped at the island and we were coming back on our kayaks we had to push it on the water, but the funniest thing is that two people fell in the water. They couldn’t get back in so they pushed the kayak back to the ledge then did it again, they were finally successful!

Adult Bit: Kayaking L Plates was put out by JACS Team as a great location for first time paddlers.  She discovered the spot of course by a nearby cache, but also as a place to test her new kayak and give both her son and his cousin their first kayaking paddle in a safe space. This is designed to be an easy find with no need to exit the craft (see middle pic).

“I was impressed by how unbelievably clear the water is! Many small lillies growing around was extra nice. It’s relatively shallow, protected, serene place – actually ideal for learning to paddle! Being competent in the kayak though, I slowly cruised along, drinking in the surrounds (and picking up a few floating plastics). As I got closer, I spent longer than is normal looking into the water at the rocks and logs below. Did I mention how clear the water is?  Another thoroughly enjoyable paddle geocache – one I’d also recommend for those new to the kayaking game. Thanks for this little waterborne adventure, JACS Team :)”

Captain Terror – 8/19

Each month in the lead up to the main event we are running a little contest for you to collect code words.  These will come in handy – so don’t leave it until the minute to solve. 

Last month we ran a CITO contest where you just had to email the committee letting us know the most unusual thing you’ve found on a CITO.  We received serval entries and using a random generator the winner is … Waz and Vik, who found koala’s during a CITO they attended here in Petrie.  Congratulations they won the 2020 CITO trackable.

Find the first code word once you have solved the crossword.  Save each code word as they will be required at the Dayboro Event!!!

8(5)9(4)2(2)4(3)2(1)2(8)7(4)3(1)9(9)9(4)8(8)6(1)

What’s Next

On the 15th we will be sharing with you the latest information from the Committee as we nudge ever so closer to April 2021! We will also be sharing the rest of our amazing Ambassador team. Talk about what we got up to for Blue Switch Day and a feature on Queensland first geocache.

Cache QLD — Event News! 
zoa

Welcome to Dayboro!

Downtown Dayboro – Heritage Building, Dayboro Tennis Courts & Pool, Gift Shop

Well, not quite yet.  You may have heard our announcement back in November when we were 500 days away from the Grand Opening, and that we have selected the picturesque rural town of Dayboro to be our host location for 2021.

Dayboro is a small country town and located less than an hour’s drive and some 45km north-northwest from Brisbane.  The Dayboro region is made up of several surrounding localities such as Ocean View, Mount Mee, Mount Pleasant and Laceys Creek.

This country town has a population of around 2000, but don’t for a minute think that this is a sleepy little village it is well known for its annual Dayboro Rodeo and the Dayboro show which celebrates the towns distinct country lifestyle and history. It is ever growing in popularity for visitors and families to come and enjoy the family friendly environment and stunning rolling pastures.

Activities available in Dayboro include horse riding and four-wheel drive adventures, and leisurely pursuits include vineyards and feeding farm animals.  Of course geocaching is a big part of Dayboro too, check out our previous post January Highlights for information on three geo-arts in the immediate vicinity of Dayboro.

Our home base in Dayboro will be the Dayboro Showgrounds, where we hold a booking over the full Easter period and during this time Cache QLD will be managing all camping bookings through this website – so stay tuned in for that in the second half of the year. 

• `寸렇`새수鬱
Dayboro Showgrounds – main pavillion

Dayboro Showgrounds have many powered camping sites and an abundance of unpowered sites.  In 2016 the local government committed to a 1.5 million upgrade to the showgrounds which saw new multipurpose and function facilities and upgrades to the camping facilities amongst other things.

The camp ground is serviced by two separate shower/toilet block, a camp kitchen and coin operated washing machine and dryer.   The views of the country side are beautiful, and it’s is only a short walk into the town centre of Dayboro via a direct connected pathway.  However perhaps the best news of all for those loyal geo-dogs and even geo-cats, all our furry friends are welcome to camp with their owners.

If your concerned about internet coverage in this rural location, you’ll be pleased to know that Dayboro and the surrounding locations have just recently had an upgrade to their connectivity to the internet to make it even better than it was before – although it still will be best to save lists offline when hitting the hills.

Long story short, our location is fantastic with plenty of on ground camping accommodation, which will be available to book through the Cache QLD website from the second half of the year.

Introducing

Let me introduce you to someone who is an important part of the Cache QLD team.  This is Cal!  Short for Calibre of course, being that he is part ammo can.

This friendly little guy was designed for the committee by none other than puzzle guru Cully Long.  Despite us geocachers knowing him best for his book “How to Puzzle Cache”, Cully is also very talented scenic designer, graphic designer and illustrator!  When we described what we were looking for “some kind of cartoon ammo can man” he mocked this up this little gem on a plane trip in about 15 minutes!  We fell hard for little Cal and we hope you do too.  Cal is going to be hanging out with us on all our promotional material and will feature on our event pathtags and geocoins – he may even make an appearance on trackables!

Contest Time

So with the introduction of Cal made, we are going to have a little competition featuring our new friend. Are you good at drawing, designing or just have a really cool imagination?  We are looking for a single round event pathtag to be designed featuring our mascot, Cal.  The design should be family friendly which features Cal and/or highlights Queensland as a destination. It should also include the words ‘Dayboro 2021’.

Now, the Cache QLD Committee are a punny bunch of people and we have had a lot of fun ourselves thinking of Cal related puns and we were wondering what you could come up with ie. Tropi-Cal, Musi-Cal, Physi-Cal just to name a few.  You might like to incorporate a pun into your design.  Just to be clear this is not a requirement of the tag design, but if you make us smile and laugh that’s obviously going to bring some happy points.

If you’re interested go and click over to the Contest tab to see all the rules and conditions and to get Cal’s images and PMS colours.

Pathtags

Speaking of pathtags, Cache QLD have been working with Pathtags.com and have designed up our own special pathtag backs.  When creating a pathtag you can elect to have this design as your back from the Give Back section.   The finals have all been approved and should be showing as an option very shortly in the gallery, if not already.

What’s Next

On February 1st we will have our post of Cache QLD Highlights. February we are ‘Leaping into Love’.  We will have a look at some of the most loved up caches in Queensland, some related challenges where collecting those favourite points would be handy.  As it’s valentines on the 14th we will highlight a few loved themed caches and the rose geo-art in Kilcoy.  We are also introducing a new segment – Kids Caching Corner.  So, don’t forget to check back on our website from the 1st February 2020.
