Note 03 Oct 2003    Orienteering/GPS-O  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

:-)

Hooray! It looks like this event will indeed take place.

Yesterday I obtained a copy of the map for the event. It will be a Random-O. A Random-O is an event that consists of numerous controls being established. Each participant can go out and find as many as they want in any order. Finding a predetermined number of them is equivalent to completing the various levels of an orienteering meet, i.e., a white course, a yellow course, an orange course, etc. The number needed for each course will be announced at the meet.

The GPS-O portion of the meet will be structured like this. There will be 20 controls. You will receive a map of the area without any control markers, a clue sheet that describes each of the controls, a sheet with the latitude and longitude of each control, and a punch card to keep track of each control that you find. The latitude and longitude have been determined by scanning in the map and then electronically locating each point on the map. I will attempt to field check each point for accuracy, but due to the change in the original location and the short notice that I have, I may not be able to check all of them. I'll do my best to have accurate coordinates.

Since this is the first GPS event, please bear with us if it still has a few glitches. It should be a lot of fun and we look forward to any suggestions you may have for changes in the format and for other GPS events.

Please call the ROC Hotline at 585-377-5650 to get last minute updates on the meet.

Note 28 Sept 2003    Orienteering/GPS-O  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Hi again,

It looks like the October 5th event will be held at Durand Eastman Park in Rochester New York (N43 13.753 W077 33.702).

Due to some difficulty getting the Pinewood Girlscout Camp, the meet at Durand is being put together at the last minute. At this time, I have not seen an advance copy of the map which would allow me to go out and record some of the controls so that we could have a GPS event. I am, however, hopeful that I will have something early this week (09/28) so that I will be able to get this event coordinated.

Please keep an eye on this cache as I will be updating it as I get new information this week.

Sorry for the confusion - I'm just a pawn in this game!

I found it! 28 Sept 2002    The Gambler  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 1.5 )

This was our second hunt.

I live right in the area of the cache so we didn't even have to drive to it (although a drive would have been easier cause of the length and the hills)

It took about 1:45 from start to finish. We had 6 cachers; Dad age 49, Sarah age 21, Angela age 9, Patrick age 9, Brendan age 7 and John age 5. John got a bee sting and both he and Angela were into what appeared to be poison ivy (after I told them to stay away from it - of course). We'll know for sure in 12 hours or so.

Anyway, the cache was found in good shape and the kids exchanged some trinkets. The camera was on number 17/18 and we left our message in the log.

My Garmin etrex Legend showed us to be within 20-30 feet of each waypoint with the WAAS on and an overcast sky.

Thanks for the hide!

I found it! 21 Sept 2002    Graveyard Grumble Part 1 of 2  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Had a great time! It was our first geocache. We completed the course in about 2 hours with me (Dad age 49), Joe age 11, Angela age 9 and Brendan age 7.

For those of you who have completed it, you may notice someting providential about the date we went and the information we had to gather from the third waypoint.

I live in the area of the geocache but had never taken the time to notice how unique and interesting the particular site was.

The cache was in good shape. We took a flashlight and a pad lock and left some magic cards and something else ???

Well worth the trip. Thanks for taking the time to put this one together!
