The Northern Virginia Geocaching Organization invites everyone to join us for our 2013 Summer Picnic!

NoVAGO's Summer Soiree
Sunday, August 11, 2013
10 am — 4 pm

at

Franklin Park

Purcellville, VA




Summer is in full swing and so is NoVAGO! Come join us for an afternoon of fun, good food, stories, a Silent Auction, and a guaranteed good time! Everyone who has an interest in geocaching is invited to attend the Northern Virginia Geocaching Organization's 2013 Summer Picnic! You do not have to be a member of NoVAGO to attend. No matter if you have zero finds or thousands, everyone is welcome! New to the game? New to the area? Visiting from out of town? Feel free to join us!

We'll be gathering at the Hillsboro Pavilion at Franklin Park, a large 203-acre regional park in western Loudoun County. With plenty of space, there will be many caches to seek, friends to visit, games to play, and of course, the annual Silent Auction too!

Silent Auction Information

NoVAGO charges no membership dues, so to help defray the costs of pavilion rentals, website hosting, picnic food, etc. we host a once-a-year large Silent Auction! Many items will be up for bid — check the Auction Catalog to get a taste of what to expect — so plan on bringing some extra cash with you. If you would like to donate any items for the auction to help support NoVAGO and its mission, please contact the core at 2013officers @novago.org.



Our picnic lunch will be a potluck event, so please post the dish you'll be bringing in your "Will Attend" log. We'll keep a master list of who is bringing what, right here on the NoVAGO forums. No dish, dessert or drink will get turned away. All food is welcome! Mmm!




Additional Information

• There are quite a few caches in the surrounding area to keep you busy before and after the event, and rumor has it that there will be a handful of new caches for the event too!

• Please keep this event on your watch list and check back often for any updates. More information on the schedule of events will be posted soon.

It ended up being a great event.  Lots of people ended up finding OC.us caches though fewer people logged them.  There was only one really negative comment made in front of me but it got the word out about the site a bit more.

Last to attend. Arrived about 4:50. Better late than never. Nice to chat with some of the stragglers, before heading off to find some new caches.

Thanks & Happy Trails!

I'll be late, but I'm going to try to head down after church - particularly for the new OBXgeek OCNA hides.
