Other than a notification from GC.com, is there a way to run a PQ for events out to 40 miles?  How does everyone else keep up with future events?

The state page on Geocaching.com is a good place to check upcoming events. I also have a link to events in the community menu up top here on hgcs. When people add events to the calendar here they'll show up in the right side block.

I just usually click on the "Newest in Texas" link on my GC.com home page -- the first two pages or so are events.  You could run a PQ easily enough.  Just select the cache type of "Events" and set the distance for however far out you want.

 

The calendar tab here on HGCS is pretty handy too, but not everyone posts their events there.  There was one someone hosted yesterday that is missing from the calendar... :notme:

I run a PQ every week to pull new caches (events included) within a 100 mile radius.   This also captures any new caches that I may have missed with one of my regular area PQ's.

I ended up having to run Events as a separate PQ so it would include my own events. My normal PQs ignore my hides and my finds so it wasn't getting my new events. Set up your PQs accordingly.

I'd hope you'd know about your own events, heftydude!

I use notifications set to a certain radius just like for regular caches. When they hit my inbox I can automatically add them to my Outlook calendar on the spot or delete them (like I do with heftydude's). I can even set them to tentative in Outlook and give them their own category color. I hardly ever use PQ's....only for one thing....

I always just use the "Newest in Texas" feature on gc.com.  I browse it maybe every week or so, and then add events I think I might want us to go to to my Google calendar.

I'm sure Groundspeak loves me for throwing their pages into iframes...

Newest in TX (Geocaching.com's TX state page) is now listed under the Community menu up top.
