Description   EN   

I planned on this being the world's first "listed on Opencaching.us only event." Well, that didn't happen, because some guy decided to list This hastily arranged Thanksgiving day event with 12 hours notice Don't worry, I'm not mad or anything.

This event will be held at Hucklebuckets Family Grill and Sports Bar, 3047 Sheridan Drive, Amherst, NY 14226, on Saturday, December 11th, 2010, at 7:00 PM sharp. I have "the barn" reserved, a room in the back which holds 25 people, and contains a monster sized flat screen TV (for watching the Buffalo Sabres vs. Pittsburgh Penguins hockey game) which also, ironically enough, starts at 7:00 PM sharp.

Hucklebuckets is a nice place, with moderately priced food (served in buckets). You can visit their website here. And you can check out their menu online in advance here. They have 12 beers on tap, many more bottled or canned, as well as your standard on the shelf liquors, and Pepsi products for soft drinks.

Seeing as this is an Opencaching.us exclusive, there will be no Travel Bugs or Geocoins traded. But feel free to bring GeoKrety's to this event. If you can figure out how to make them, that is. Conversation, concordance and camaraderie guaranteed.

If you post a "will attend" log, please indicate in your log how many will be attending in your party, so I can get an approximate count for HuckleBuckets a few days out.

I was waiting for Rayman, who will probably be the last to post an online entry for this event. This event was a great success. It will show 10 attended logs, but there were actually a whopping 20 people there, including two team accounts. This also included two people I had no clue were coming, and I had no idea even heard of the event!! Food was good and moderately priced, drinks were good, and moderately priced, and the staff did a great job. And to think I only chose the place because I heard a few radio ads for it, and the name HuckleBuckets sounded good for a Geocaching event. Thanks to each and every one of the 20 attendees, I'm sure you had a great time, and we will have to do it again some time.

Now that was fun! I had a great time talking to everyone and the food was yummy. It was a good way to end a cold caching day. Saw the stick...tag, GOF, you're it...hahaha. Now I'll have to go out and find an actual "open cache".

Thanks Mr. Yuck.

What a great bunch of folks showed up! We had good food, good beer, and good friends to share it with. Now I just have to figure out what to do with this damn stick!Laughing

I sat, I stood, I ate a burger, I even spoke once or twice. I was glad for the chance to put a few more faces to names. Thanks!
