A Winter's & Summer's End

I am sorry to say that for a lot of reasons over the last few weeks I haven't been caching. Not for the want of trying, it is just that other things took over.

Even this weekend, we were supposed to be going to Great Yarmouth for my birthday, the hotel was booked, the GPS loaded with caches, but circumstances have again taken over, so yet again, it is a birthday at home.

On a brighter note we held the Winter's End Flash Mob last Sunday, and what a brilliant day it was. The sun was shining, the car park of the shopping area absolutely full so all was set for us to see some bemused faces..............and boy did we!

At the stroke of 12.00 people gathered at the designated area and milled around, having a natter to each other and the at 12.10 the whistle blew and most people donned christmas hats, or tinsel, or both and started singing Jingle Bells. Once the song was finished people began to drift away, or stayed to have a natter.
There were certainly some strange looks from members of the public who didn't have a clue what was going on. Northking very kindly set some new caches for the event as well.

The turnout couldn't have been better, and I am genuinely thrilled with how many people turned up to support such a daft event. The photos below of the Flash Mob have kindly been given to me by the marriot hunters who emailed me to them a couple of days ago.
There have been some very funny logs that have been enjoyable to read as well, if you want to look you can find them here http://coord.info/GC2MWZC

A great way to say goodbye to winter

If you get a chance to either run or attend a Flash Mob, I thoroughly recommend it, and needless to say, I am already thinking of what to do for the next one.

Summer's End Camping Event 2011

Following on from the Winter's End, it was time to go about getting this year's Summer's End Camping Event published. It is again being held in the Peak District, but at a different campsite, this time one with hot water!!!!
For anyone interested, the details can be found here http://coord.info/GC2PYFR
If it is half as much fun as last years we should have a good time. The site is a lot smaller this year, so anyone wanting to attend will have to get it booked up pretty quickly.

Well that's it, short but sweet. Hopefully next time I will actually be able to tell you about some caching that we have done, it has been quite a while now and annoyingly I have been so close to getting my 700th cache for what seems like forever.

Happy caching.

Glad the flash mob went down okay. Was curious to see what it would be like!

Hope your 700th isn't too far away!
