Kid Friendly Wheelchair Access Limited Hours Listed on OCNA Only 

Please see the attributes article for more information.

Description   EN   

Welcome to my alma mater, and for that matter, the school attended by many in the geocaching community.

With many, many geocaches placed around the SFU Burnaby campus and surrounding forests, it seemed appropriate to place an OCNA only webcam cache smack in the middle of it all. Just find the south-west set of benches in the plaza to the west of the Quad and the East of the Convocation Mall, face the rising sun and smile!

As this is a webcam cache, the idea is to capture a photo of yourself or your caching group and attach it with your log, please! You can access the webcam image (it's a very quick refresh so be aware of that!) at this link.

This cache is best done at midSFU Convocation Mall Webcam-day, although technically it's avaiable 24x7. The worst time is to do it late afternoon/early evening as the sun shines right into the webcam and you can't see anything. Thus the "limited hours" attribute.

Remember, it *IS* a University so there's certain times of the year when it's busier than other and may be trickier to get that "perfect shot."

Other than that, have fun, and SMILE!

And as always: cache safely, and cache often!

The webcam doesn't seem to exist anymore.

1 15 August 2015 Wet_Coaster Found it

Finally got up to the SFU Campus to get this webcam cache.  When it was published it was around the time of Summer Convecation.  Not a good time to try and get a web cam shot of this area.
