The Letchworth III Story

The "BLACKWATCH CLAN” called the annual meeting of all "stashseekers". The Letchworth location, became "OurWoods" for another weekend, if you brought your "Rusty O Junk" dish to pass, plucked down your "mrgreen/moneypenny", and spread your "FancyWings", to get there.

The weather gods threatened with rain. But the "Bounty-Hunters" had a "wisewoman" named "Candy God" that they countered with. The geo gods cooperated, you could leave your bug spray home and not be "SkeeterBait2". Most would get "junglehair" and need a "Wheelygood" fixin from "babrshpdru".

"BerkMom" led all the "Wheelygood Women" in cooking up some "ChileHead" and "Road Kill" that the "Gardner Girls" had "Krafty04" prepared while wearing "Foxgloves", after being inspected by "Vet Tech '03".

"MsBusymom" brewed up some "marlin01" and "Gandalf" which you could wash down with a "Peppermill 6-Pack("WMSFresh)" or an "Olf D'Coors" and give you a "Team Headrush".

"Blackpete" issued a warning, to beware of the "Two Bears in the Woods", "Racer and Boo", "Bearly Kathy", and "ATMouse", who recently had chased "thehiker" and "1Darlin" across a "ROCKY" creek, and needed to use their "CB" to report "Ima Lost" and had a "booboo_1".

"Team Ferret" formed a rescue crew of "golden navigators" consisting of "MikeNBecca", "Marc G.", "eltee1", "rjw661", "Quintheeskimo66", "CamillusGeo", "Postkid", "Vargseld", "peter0224", with "medicdave", and "mickemt" leading the way.

"Strikeforce1", "mrmom" - aka Lord of the Light, and "ScouterMark" were out trying to arrest "The Lyndon Road Gang" and the elusive team of "Harv & Donna “(w/o Donna )”" who was a little "Mrs Ruty".

Back at base, "TeamDurant", "cazador481", "Fossil Doc and Serendipity", and "HFJohn", was playing a "ceedee" doing the "KimmyShimmy" until "Brogan" pulled the plug. We then had a "brownout" but "PyroDave" started a fire that guided all back thru the darkness of the night.

In the end, all had a "Killerb" of time. We formed "thesmileygang", said "avroair" till nest year.

This little story is inspired by "mrmom", who has a cache very similar to this, using cachers names to tell a story. SF1 having fun with names.

Letchworth Fall Gathering III
“Blackwatch Clan”

Gamma Kitt, Coyote, and Road Kill – you did it again, And even better!

Thanks for the great people, great food, and great fun.
Yupp! I had so much fun, it’s taken me three days to recover and post my log.
It’s always “GREAT” to catch up with “old” vet. cachers, and meet “newer” ones alike.
Yes! I’m already counting down the days till next year! Kinda like a kid waiting for Christmas, 362 Days and counting.

Huckle-Buckle, I found it!

Arrived at 11:13 AM and stayed at picnic most of the day, ending it by spending time at Junglehair's bonfire. Our 3rd year here. Enjoyed ourselves very much talking to as many as we could. Cachers are great people!
Completed Event#2 cache. We have learned from this that KillerB hangs with people like Brogan too much. What a great hide, very clever waypoints (and devious WP#2). Did this cache in 2 parts, finally finishing up at 6:42PM. It was great meeting you KillerB and talking with you about your hides, thanks for your efforts!
Good food, good time. Thanks so much to Blackwatch Clan for once again giving us the another great picnic!

Just catching up on some old caches I forgot to log. Its not Jan 2005! LOL

Anyways....this was an awesome event I'll remember for a looong time. My son and I thoroughly enjoyed the weekend camping and caching there and meeting so many great people. The pictures I have from there are still breathtaking to look at and I will definitely try to return again for another event there. Unfortunately it wont be for the next one since I'll still be overseas in the Middle East on duty for the next year but I really hope to be able to make the Gathering V when I return.

Thanks again for a great time.

What can I say that hasnt been said already??
If you diddnt go to this, you missed a heck of a great time!
Gamma Kit, you are THE BEST!!! All the hard work you put in to setting this up showed.
Killer B, thanks for the great event caches, I only did #2 ( spent 3 hours, got my second FTF!, PLEASE submit that one as a permenant cache!) but I heard that #1 was just as good. Also a great hide at the bonfire the night before.
Great people, Great fun, great food, the only thing more that you could ask for was for it to never end!!!

Saturday, 12:00noon
I had a great time at the picnic. Mega-thanks to the Blackwatch Clan & Co. for putting it on. So nice to put faces with names. Can't wait for the next one. My (almost famous)Dutch oven baked beans seemed to be a hit...it was one of the first empty dishes (rats, no leftovers). TtbLtbSL.

Whoops. Spoke too soon. Good thing I procrastinated posting a note to the "other" website, because this is the date of my daughters annual league cheerleading competition, and I'll never be able to make the event. (I had hoped to bring her with me). So I guess I'll just have to enjoy those alcoholic beverages in moderation at home that evening. Have a good event!

It is looking really good for this to be my first ever event cache. I just couldn't pass up on an opportunity to consume alcoholic beverages in moderation. I'll sign up for something when the date gets closer, and I'm 100% sure I can attend.
