Here is some info on GeoCashing that I found. It will be a fun event May 1st, here in Smithville, Tx. Our BandB
is already booked for that weekend, but Smithville is a fun place to visit. (Secret- there is a Cashe right near our B&B)
Here is the information:
Believe it or not, Smithville, Texas
is on the map. Unbeknownst (sp) to us, in planning this event, we discovered this is the 10th anniversary of Geo Caching
, so we are honored to put on this event and will be honored to have as many geocachers as possible attend. As this will be our first effort in putting on an event, we intend to do a good job. Based upon early returns, there is interest from old time cachers as well newer cachers. Should be pHun!
The gathering will take place at the La Cabana Restaurant located on Highway 71 East Bound just a mile or so west of the Smithville exit at 1:30pm. The actual address of the La Cabana is 719 Hwy 71 West, Smithville, TX and of course, the coordinates listed should put you on the doorstep. We are going to try and incorporate lunch and program all together. There will be some door prizes. Looks we are going to have some neat stuff to give away, including two unregistered geocoins. Other prizes include so far: 3 Sure Fire Flashlights; 12 Spec-OPS Nylon Pouches; Gen-Tech Lanyards. The Smithville Chamber of Commerce
plans on contributing some prizes.At this point, we will have a presentation by a representative of Buescher State Park which is located nearby. Of course, we know that the Texas State Parks in this area are friends and participants of geocaching. There maybe a few geocaching war stories by geocachers with many experiences and maybe even a few by new cachers. We plan on a question and answer time, so opportunity will be there to ask any that participate in the program the question not answered during their presentation.

We plan on this being a friendly event for all families and individuals who attend.
