We are almost there! We wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for the amaxing support of Townsville City Council! We can’t thank them enough!!
We have noticed that people are on the move already heading towards Townsville and a few events have popped up along routes for travellers to connect. We have been hearing things about some amazing planning happening to grab all the target caches involving hire of specialist equipment. We know of zoom sessions to get the Saint sorted and nut over some ideas as group collective. We also know that the GPS Maze (GC9MQ6K) has arrived!
So, where to from here:
Merchandise: The order time is almost at an end for any printed merchandise, with the final day for purchases being 11:30pm Friday 25th March. Coins and pathtags will continue to be for sale until we have exhausted our stock. Please be aware that our Event polo shirts have been closed off for ordering due some concerns regarding the recent flooding through the warehouse affecting stock.
Reviewer Session: We are calling out for questions for our reviewers to consider during their session, you can submit your questions through our email address firstname.lastname@example.org
Milestone Shout-out: If you or someone you know is celebrating a milestone over the weekend, please let us know so we can recognise, share and celebrate with you. Perhaps it’s a birthday, caching anniversary, first Mega, 100th cache, 20,000th cache send us an email at email@example.com
Trivia (GC8HMY0): Remember to register for the Trivia event, so you can be allocated a table and we can have enough resources on hand to make this a great night.
CITO (GC9NB63): We are overwhelmed with the all the support that has been shown through the Will Attends for the CITO, we will need to provide council with numbers of expected attendees prior to the event, so make sure you have registered your interest. We would like once more to remind people that enclosed shoes, hat and sunscreen will be essential for the event and encourage carpooling to the event where possible as attendance is looking to exceed parking spots.
Volunteering: We are looking for people to help across the weekend with the Escape Room, Maze, packing up and setting out, cache maintenance or just being on hand for any unexpected little jobs that might crop up. We have a few spots left open after the wonderful Townsville Geocaching community have stepped in to try and cover as many spots as possible so our visitors can enjoy maximum caching time.
