Geocache Hike and Seek  

This is the first ever geocaching one day event in Sudbury taking place on Saturday, June 3, 2006 at 9am to 5:30 pm at Fielding Memorial Park.  It is entitled Geocache Hike and Seek.

Registration is $100 for a team of four.  The idea is that one of the four will have a GPS unit to use.  It is a great event for families, coworkers, and friends to compete.  All registrations will take place at Ramakko’s.  People will be able to pay by cash, cheque made out to Rainbow Routes, visa or MasterCard.

9am to 10 am will be last minute registrations, discussion, of rules to the event with competitors, question and answer with Ramakko staff, official opening by a City Councilor.

10am to 4pm teams will be given coordinates to 5 caches along three to four different trails.  Once found each team will take out one sealed envelope from each of the 5 caches.  Inside each is a playing card.  The best poker hands will win prizes.

Then they must come back to Fielding Memorial Park to hand them in, whereby they will be given 3-5 GPS coordinates on a trail that is more challenging.  This will be the bonus round.  Each individual will have the opportunity to take one sealed envelope out of each of the caches and return with them sealed to Fielding Memorial Park by 4pm.  Inside each of these, will be something different – free-shirt, other instant prizes,   perhaps one wild card per box,

4pm to 5:30pm

Closing remarks, thank-yous’, announcement of winners, clean up etc..  

To add to this:

At about 1:30pm I will have Peter Beckett putting on an organized walk starting at Fielding Memorial Park.  This is in partnership with Rainbow Routes and the Heart Health Coalition.

June 3rd is International Trails Day.  Ontario Provincial Park Association is putting a push on to get people on trails in June.  And the Ontario Trails Council is having a theme of, Ontario Trails:  Yours to Explore, and runs May 28th to June 3rd 2006.  There is even talk by the Ontario Trails Council to making it a Guinness Book of Records event to get the most number of people on a trail on June 3rd.

Chris Howald, a massage therapist, will be on hand giving massages in return for donations to Rainbow Routes, throughout the day. 

M&M Meat Shops will be present with their barbecues throughout the day.  It has been worked out so that a minimal fee will be charged for food, as the Heart Health Coalition will be helping out with costs as their part to the free organized walk.

Howard Johnson on Brady St. will be setting aside a block of rooms for this event for the discounted price of $88 per night for those who register prior to May 8th.
