So many thanks go to Blackwatch Clan GammaKitt for a wonderful event. It was so nice to see so many cachers all in one place. I will definitely be sure to make it to this event again next year. I dropped off a travel bug here to go to Germany. Thanks Again, -Paleoman52-

What an amazing event! I've been looking forward to this since I was unable to attend last year - and I have to say - it's awesome that such a huge group of cachers can get together and be able to share so many stories. You really feel that "close knit" community, and it's so cool to be a part of such a great group.

Chicky and I had a blast catching up with some old friends, as well as meeting new ones that we've heard so much about. It's awesome to put faces to names/caches and be able to talk about their hides.

A huge thanks to everyone who made this a fantastic time - the past year has been a non-stop adventure and we're glad we have been able to share it with all of you!

Great event as usual. I first logged I was coming on March 1st - wow..that was long ago!

Thanks to GammaKit and Roadkill for all the hard work put into making this happen again. They get better every year. Letchworth is a gem.

See you all at Letchworth VI!

WOW! I can't believe that yet another Letchworth Fall gathering has come and gone.
As always, the event was well organized and well run.
About the only "sour note" is that so many of the Buffalo area cachers missed the event due to the snowstorm that devestated the Buffalo & Batavia area.
It was a blast getting to catch up with old freinds and make new ones.

Can't wait for next years gathering!

PS, can't believe that I'm the first to log this on Navicache!, Please keep listing this event on this site!
