Hell Julien,

Thanks for the feedback. That are actually some things I would be really
interested in :

   - Where did you do that?
   - What was the time format?
   - What aspect did people enjoy the most?
   - What do you think could have been improved

Would you be interested in being part of that party? We were thinking about
doing that in June.

>> 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

>> 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 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
>> 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.
>> Cheers,
