I did an introduction to Geocaching once on the Ottawa Geek Social Club

Had about 7 or 8 people.   Best way to get computer geeks outdoors :-)

> 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 :

> possibility to chill out afterwards.
> There used to be a Geocaching group on http://www.meetup.com, but not any

>    - 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 end.
> 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
>    page.
>    - 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

>    - 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.
