Description   EN   


This little pocket park was constructed in memory of Kay Plyler, the assistant town manager for Matthews, who was killed in a tragic accident when an elder tree fell on her SUV in Charlotte in 2008.  Her obituary read,

~~~
Sharon " Kay " Thompson Plyler Mrs. Plyler, of Matthews, sadly passed away March 8, 2008. She was born in Stuart, FL on August 22, 'somewhere in time', the daughter of Joyce Thompson of Huntersville. Kay was the beautiful wife of Minor Plyler, a Detective for the Stallings Police Department, whom she love deeply! - and the loving mother of Hunter Yeaton and Taylor Plyler-Yeaton. She was the daughter-in-law of Janice and Evan Plyler; and sister of Charles and David Thompson. A graduate of Furman University, Kay was an equine enthusiast and winner of many Hunter Jumper events in her own right. She was the driving force behind her daughter's equestrian accomplishments and her son's competitive fencing achievements. She was a dedicated mother to her children; they were her first and foremost priority. She was the Assistant Town Manager for the City of Matthews for 13 years, and she gave her heart and soul to this position. Mother, daughter, financier, Assistant Town Manager, horse mom, groom, beautiful wife, trainer, taxi driver, tutor, platinum friend, counselor, and advisor were just a few of her titles. She loved animals and had incredible compassion for all of God's creatures. Her legacy will live on in the accomplishments of the two people she loved most in this world, her children, Hunter and Taylor. A smile that would light up a galaxy, Kay will be deeply missed by all of us. May she ride for eternity on her beloved horse, RC.

Found the cache as a skirmish attack on the blue team from the red team for the GCGC relay. TFTC!

After the flash mob event, I walked over here as another group returned. It's a nice spot. Other than the heat I enjoyed the short walk. I was going to look for the GC cache very near, except someone was sitting near that gz, so I moved on. Will upload a picture later.



### **Thanks, FailedApparatus, for setting this up!** ###

1 31 August 2014 DudleyGrunt Found it

Was down from Maryland with sfcchaz for a (mostly) alt-caching run thru Charlotte.  This was day two, after a surprisingly well attended 0630 (AKA o'dark thirty) event at Krispy Kreme (maybe that explains it).

Was glad to log the nearby GS puzzle after reading the warning on the cache page and deciding to look around.

We had a great time and definitely plan to make a return trip some time.

Last time I was hear (2012) and looking for the other cache, I left my GPS on the bench or wall and didn't realize until I got to Walgreen.  Didn't repeat my mistake this time.  This memorial was dedicated on my birthday.

Thanks and Happy Trails!

1 31 August 2014 sfcchaz Found it

DudleyGrunt and I came down to North Carolina to seek some OCNA caches. They are many, many OCNA caches in the Charlotte area and we wanted to seek them during the current contest going on the OCNA site.

Today I found 45 OCNA cahes, 5 Groundspeak caches, 1 GPSgames.org cache , 1 Opencaching.com cache and several possible Terracaching.com locationless caches.

This was a great cache and made me feel better afte DNFing the Wet Paint cache near here. TFTC
