New Caches

This weeks new caches, 9 caches in total, all on Anglesey.

Shall we go for a walk series by Jonesof3

We can highly recommend this new series around a long disused oil storage facility that has been taken over by nature. There is plenty of evidence of its past industrial history but at this time of year it is full of wild flowers, birds, butterflies, damsel and dragonflies, all things I love. The geocaches are all interesting hides and containers, though we do feel the difficulty rating on some is a bit on the low side. After following in the footsteps of the master FTF shark Ecobake for most of the series, we did manage a FTF but sadly the last cache in the series eluded us on our first attempt. But NOT being competitive First to Finders we have since rectified our failure with a lot of help from the CO!

Return of Nosh & Natters

We had hoped that we would be announcing the return of N&N’s at the end of June but it is looking highly unlikely that Covid restrictions are going to be lifted to allow group gatherings in a Pub/Restaurant and therefore Geocaching UK will not be reinstating events. So we have a suggestion, as groups of 30 people can met outside at an organised event, how about a “*Pot Luck” BBQ at ours? This will also give Pete a chance to show off his posh BBQ acquired in lockdown. We are thinking either the weekend of 25th/26th or the evening of Tuesday 29th June as this should have been N&N night. Please register interest in the comments and your preferential day.
* Pot Luck – everybody bringing a contribution

New Caches

There has been 6 caches published in our area during the last 7 days and I am sure Ecobake has already found them all.

CITO Update

We can confirm that the council have picked up all the bags but have left the road cone!

Bags have now gone but the cone is still on the wall

Thanks again to everyone who attended.

Glaslyn Ospreys Latest

For those following the Ospreys it has been a very traumatic week, terrible weather leading to floods, injury of the male, Aran, and the loss of the first chick.

The latest statement from Bywyd Gwyllt Glaslyn Wildlife can be found here

GIFF 2021

Lights, Camera, Action! We are excited to announce that the Geocaching International Film Festival is back for another year of geocaching film fun! We hope to be hosting the film show on Saturday 20th November, times and venue still to be confirmed.

Osprey Update

I don’t know if you have been following the Glaslyn Ospreys but it has been quite a week with another female osprey, KS8’s, prolonged intrusion at the Glaslyn nest on 9th May 2021. KS8 was hatched on the Clywedog nest in 2018. A video summarising the days events can be found here

This weekend should see the hatching of the first egg, let’s hope there are no more intruders.

New Caches

We have 31 new caches published this week, all premium members only, that should keep everyone busy over the weekend. We have also included a couple of updates from this summers mega events.

Update from London Calling 2021 Mega

I am not sure if any one is planning on attending GC8JAYF London Calling 2021 but here is the latest announcement from the organisers:

“There’s just one month left to pre-order bus geocoins and supporters packs!

These are going to be removed from the online store at the end of May, in order to give us enough time to order in the coins and other items. 

Geocoins are avaliable here: https://londoncallingnow.square.site/shop/trackables/2?page=1

Supporters packs are avaliable here: https://londoncallingnow.square.site/shop/tickets-and-supporters-packs/4

Don’t forget, if you’re coming to London Calling then you’ll need a ticket to get in. These are cheaper in advance, and are available here: https://londoncallingnow.square.site/product/london-calling-2021-entry-ticket/4

Update on Prague Giga Event

Pete and I are probably the only people in the world that are pleased to see this event has been pushed back to May 2022 as this means we will be able to attend after all. We hope to put into place our original plans and are hoping others can join us.

GC7WWWW 20 Years of Geocaching Prague 2020 – Edition 2022
Although we were hoping for better news, the situation is unfortunately not such that it will be possible to carry out a gigaevent in 4 months.
This event will not take place in September 2021 because of health and safety concerns related to COVID-19. It will be rescheduled to 13-15 May 2022.
Hopefully, the situation will be stabilized next year. We believe that it will be possible to organize a grand celebration in a joyful and relaxed spirit, so that both participants and organizers can enjoy it.
Once it is rescheduled, we will post an Announcement and update this page.”
