Hello folks,

Javed, mentionned the idea of organizing a geocaching party. Geocaching is
a game where people have to find geocaches that are associated with a set
of coordinates. I love this idea a lot.

For more info and see where the caches are see the links below :

The goal is  to organise a fun get together. Javed and I were originally
thinking we would make that happen in Gatineau Hills. There would also be a
possibility to chill out afterwards.

There used to be a Geocaching group on http://www.meetup.com, but not any
more. So what I am thinking is the following :

   - If we have few people, we do one group, and that group go after the
   same geocache.
   - If we have a lot, we can do team on different geocaches, and try to
   see which team is the fastest
   - Eventually, we can take some time for a beer / coffee together at the

In terms of organization, this is how I see things :

   - The geocaching party must fit into a morning. We all have things to do
   during the week-end.
   - People should be able to bring their folks / friends.
   - This should be advertised on meetup well in advance and on our wiki
   - People need to let me know in advance what their feeling is like
   towards that. I don't want to spend time organizing that if it is of
   interest to no one.

So, where do we start ;)? I suggest you first let me know what you think
about this idea.

   - Are you open to that concept.
   - Would you rather see that replace the monthly meeting the month it
   happens? (That is definitely doable)

Remember, I really need your feedback to make that happen, so share your
ideas, pros, and cons as soon as possible.
