TXGA DAY: SETX - SW Houston-Galveston-Brazoria --- Sept 10 (Saturday)
Posted 09 August 2011 - 03:31 PM
One of numerous simultaneous events being held as part of the unveiling of the NEW TEXAS GEOCACHING ASSOCIATION.
September 10, 2011, 10am – 4pm
BRAZOS BEND STATE PARK, Park Entrance and HQ (N 29°22.270, W095°37.915 )
The Texas Geocaching Association (TXGA) was formed in January 2003 by Sam Morrow (UsMorrows), Candy Lind (Moosiegirl), and Will Nienke (9Key). Their vision and efforts have brought us here today; however, as with any organization, it is time that we revitalize TXGA. From this point forward, September 10th will be TXGA DAY!
To commemorate this first TXGA DAY, we are wiping the slates clean and beginning anew.
Events like this one are being held across the state of Texas and the TXGA is encouraging EVERY TEXAS GEOCACHER to find an event near you and attend. TXGA Reps are hosting and will provide everyone with all the information that you will need to renew or become a member of the Texas Geocaching Association.
Why become a TXGA Member? What does TXGA do for Texas geocaching and me in particular? Do I get anything by becoming a member? These are just a few of the questions that will be answered at this event.
In addition, we will have a computer(s) hooked up to allow you to join before you leave the event. Please note that Texas State Parks charge an entrance fee, $5 per person 13 years and older.

HOPE TO SEE ALL OF YOU THERE

I was wondering if there are any scheduled activities, too, or is it just a 'sign the log' event. Before we head out, any help verifying coords for HELP! would be appreciated. I just looked again, and think I've got the right ones, but want to be sure. My old ones took me to the wrong side of the river.
"Deputy Dogs" (the finest hotdogs in the world) will be handing out dogs starting around 11:30am. Hopefully, we have a few experienced cachers around to take the newbies (alot have signed up) to some of the caches in the park. If we get a big enough crowd, we will be parking in the 40 Acre Lake parking area and be shuttled back to the event location.
Starting around 1pm, we hope to have a raffle, etc. The SKYPE hookup is scheduled for 3:30pm. Be sure and bring chairs and water if you plan to stay a while.

On another note, I know that TPWD has a printed list of caches in the park but is there a bookmark or PQ file specific to BBSP? We've actually never cached there, wouldn't mind knocking out a few while we're there without having to enter all those waypoints .

Sorry the Skype thing didn't work out - but think it was a huge success otherwise.
