When I reflect on the 20+ years since co-founding Geocaching.com, many of the memories that stand out started with relationships created at geocaching events. In fact, I can honestly say that I met some of the most important people in my life at my very first event and I am truly blessed to have made so many wonderful geocaching friends in so many places around the world.
I will be back in my hometown on Long Island visiting family and friends in July and I'd love to meet some of my fellow Tri-State Area cachers while I am there. That is why I asked the Geocachers of Long Island to help plan this Community Celebration Event. From what I've heard, the GoLI crew knows how to throw a party, so it should be a good time! There will be giveaways, free food, raffles and, most importantly, a chance to hang out with fellow geocachers. More event details will be announced within the coming weeks.
EVENT DETAILS: West Lindens lot (near P6 parking area and next to the Rose Garden) of Eisenhower Park, from 4-8:30pm on Friday, July 9th. This event spot was reserved via permit with the property manager, Eisenhower Park, Nassau County Department of Park, Recreation & Museums. For those of you with children, note that the event is close to the large kids park. Up to date information on this event can also be found on the Geocachers of Long Island Facebook Group.Event Geocoin: More details to come...
