TX"mas"GA Holiday (GC412N2)
Ho Ho Ho! Merry Christmas Geocachers! Texas Geocaching Association Members and Cachers who are NOT TXGA Members are ALL WELCOME to this fun holiday event.
The Texas Geocaching Association is hosting a party with fun activities and prizes. The event will be from 2pm – 6pm , Sunday Dec 16th .
What is going on? Just a gathering of your fellow cachers for a fun afternoon. We will have holiday treats & doorprizes along with some fun contests & activites.
• On Donner, On Blitzen – a PreEvent Cache Dash --- All cachers who log a “Will Attend” should gather at these coordinates (N29 32.699 W95 45.217 OR N29 32.632 W95 45.091) at 10am. This is 4 hours before the official event. At the coordinates, there are several locations with free WiFi. At 10am, we will send an email blast listing 12 temporary caches in the general area. Contestants will then have 4 hours to find as many of the caches as they can. Each cache container will have a word on it. Upon arriving at the event between 2 and 3 pm, the contestants will have to be able to place their word clues in a specific order to win a prize. Everyone CAN win… but will they? (We reserve tbe right to modify the rules up until the start time…..)
• Ugliest Christmas Sweater Contest --- Sometime in your life have you been given a Christmas sweater? Do you think your sweater is more revolting, more tacky, and just plain uglier than anyone elses? Wear it to the party and let your fellow cachers decide just whose sweater is worthy of the title Ugliest Christmas Sweater.
• Christmas Cookie Exchange --- Bake a dozen (or two) of your favorite Holiday Cookies. Also bring your recipe card. We will have an official “Sampling” of the treats to determine just who can create the most scrumptious Holiday delights.
• Christmas Caroling --- Just two blocks from the event is a Nursing Home. We will have “practice” at 3:45pm and then stroll over to treat the Seniors with some good old fashioned Christmas Carols. Just a small way for us to spread the spirit of the season.
We are looking forward to everyone joining us at this fun event… so much so that we will also have a computer with access to the internet to allow everyone to renew their TXGA Membership OR join us for the first time. For more information, regarding the Texas Geocaching Association go to txga.net.
