This year with the Pavilion in the Quaker Lake area and Group

Camp #5, we will have an even bigger and better event. One of our

on-going goals is to promote a family friendly event, making it

attractive to even our small cachers! We also recognize that there

will be some of us raring to go caching. There are many permanent

caches located within the park and multiple event caches being

planned. With this in mind, we have attempted to strike a balance

between scheduling and opportunities to mingle and chat. This year,

we are going to try something new and are part of our continuing

effort to promote a family-oriented event. Selected meals will be

prepared available on a good will honor-system donation basis.

Please join us and check out updates on our yahoo group site:

FRIDAY: May 18th

Having traveled to get to the event, who wants the hassle of

cooking or throwing something together? You can join the fun at

Group Camp #5 area.

Our answer is the Chili and Soup Dinner. We

have a number of things planned and as we know from last year,

those early spring evenings can be cool (!) and a cup of something

warm and tasty will hit the spot as you chat with fellow cachers.

Meal will be funded through donation.

But what is dinner without entertainment? Here is a chance for

all you frustrated “Idol” fans to have a chance at the microphone

with Open Mic: Individuals or groups have their

shot at fame with a live microphone. Entertain your fellow cachers

with your best (FAMILY FRIENDLY) effort. And for all you who fear

dying of laughter at the efforts, there will be a time limit for

each group and or individual.

A Bonfire will provide a place to gather with

fellow cachers and swap stories.

The ASP Geobash Event Store will also be

available, stocked with clothing, patches, pins, and coins with a

section for NYGO and Kinzua Area Cachers items.

Night caches will be available for our die-hard


SATURDAY: May 19th

The focus switches to Quaker Lake Pavilion.

Just a hop skip and a jump down the road from Camp #5. Coffee (or

tea) and muffins will be available in the Quaker Lake Pavilion for

you early cachers who need to refuel before hitting that first

cache of the day. Meal will be funded through donation. Several

event caches of varying types and degrees of

difficulties are planned to involve everyone at every level of

caching experience.

Traditional Geocachers Potluck Lunch at Quaker

Area Pavilion. Wow your fellow cachers with your culinary efforts

as we gather mid-day to eat together picnic style. We ask

that you share with us your plans on what you are

, so we can be sure all the bases are covered!

Everything from classes for the less experience

cacher to extreme games are being planned for the

day. A nature walk for those interested in

identification of what nature has to offer. Children’s

and the return of Signal the piñata

are being planned. The traditional group picture

will be taken following the potluck lunch. The will definitely be

something for everyone at this family friendly event.

This years raffle will include many geocoins

from different people and places, along with signature items from

different cachers. Look for Moun10Bike pins and wooden nickels

along with some great coins from Local cachers and even

Pennsylvania Geocoins. The raffle will also include one of our very

own ASP Geobash Geocoins. The raffle will have GeoBaskets for

girls, boys, and adults along with many caching items. There will

be a 50-50 raffle too. We are planning on an even bigger raffle

than last year.

Camp #5 will be the focus of Saturday’s evening activities, with

an area set aside for the geocoin fans. The Geocoin

will be for exchanging “Ooo’s” and “Ahhh’s”, getting

numbers for ‘discovering’ coins and, if the coin owners desire, a

place to swap ‘traders’. If you are new to the craze, there will be

knowledgeable cachers who will be more than happy to discuss these

unique and beautiful travelers.

Mama mia! It’s a Spaghetti dinner at Camp #5’s

mess hall! An apple dessert will be the topper for this feast.

Activities will be held afterwards at the same site, so make sure

you pick up your plate! Meal will be funded through donation.

A Children’s Activity time will provided for

our younger cachers with games and craft activities.

Geocaching Colloquium: We are honored to have a

Groundpeak moderator come and talk about the Geocaching, the

sport’s history and most recent developments.

SUNDAY: May 20th

For our final get-together, our traditional “Short Stacks and

Long Tales”, fondly remembered by those who attended last year’s

events: Pancake Breakfast, with sausages

and coffee (or tea) too! Meal will be funded through donation.


Everyone will want to be sure to stop in at our event store; we

will have many items to choose from so there should be something

for everyone. We have a brand new coin this year designed by one of

our own committee members using one of Allegany State Parks cutest

raccoons as the model. The committee liked the coin design so much

that we decided to use it for this years design on our other items

as well. We will have coins, pins, patches and sweatshirts

available for sale at the store.

Be sure to check back as the event draws nearer as some items

will be available for pre-sale. We will also be posting the store

hours and prices. So make the event store part of your plans while

at the event - you will like our cute little raccoon!


We are looking forward to meeting and greeting all of you!

PLEASE make sure the cacher bringing you to the event has "placed"

you in the event, AND that he/she knows your specific goal(s) and

destinations. If you have your TB sheet please bring it with you as

it will assist us in helping you in your journey to specific

destinations. (The cacher bringing could print your sheet if you

don't have one already in your bag). We will have specific

departure areas for you depending on your goal(s) and/or

destinations. **As soon as you arrive at the event, please proceed

to the TRAVEL BUG reception area for further instructions. Happy

traveling until we see you in May!!!

I was honored last year when I was asked if I would like to join the event committee. I had a feeling at last year's geobash, that this was the start of something BIG!
Our challenge to ourselves was to make this years geobash bigger and better than last years, and, judging by the remarks from attendees, it looks like we hit our goal.
There was an incredible amount of "behind the scenes" work that went into the event, ranging from meetings at the park to people cooking some of the food at home (GREAT CHILLI ROY!!!!), to contacting potential donors, creating the prize packs for the raffle (it would have taken at least 3 times as long to run the raffle otherwise) setting up and verifying the coords for the event caches (some were planted more than a week in advance)assigning cabins and many other things.
I could list each committee meber and their contributions, but that would take far more space than I have for the log.
I would like to say a personal thank you though to AT Mouse and Pirate for their invaluable help in setting up the event caches, and of course to Monarch for his inspired leadership of the committee.
I would also like to thank all the cachers that volunteered their time at the event to help us out.
Last, but certainly not least, a BIG Thank You to all of you who attended our event, our "payoff" as committe members was seeing how much all of you enjoyed our event!
I hope to see all of you again at next years ASP Geobash III, spread the word about the event, and hopefully we can make next years event the 1st MEGA event in NY state!
