We have three new caches and the first N&N of 2023 published since our last post.

Premium Member Only GCA3QTQ #3A – Ramble – Stump by Bess’s Friends Traditional D1.5/T1.5 A new edition to Bess’s Friends Ramble series.
Event GCA3QRN 9 Usual Suspects – Nosh & Natter 53 When: Wednesday 25th January, 2023 Where: Black Boys Inn, Stryd Pedwar a Chwech, Caernarfon LL55 1RW Time: 7pm to 9pm or when the last person leaves
We have struggled to find a pub who can guarantee that their kitchens will be open on Wednesday 25th evening, hopefully this is only going to be a short term problem. We regret that dogs are not allowed in Black Boys building but are allowed at the tables out side.
Ski Sunday is coming to the Nantlle Valley. We have 2 races planned, downhill and slalom with prizes for the top 3 on the leader boards. Wrap up warm, join us either as a competitor or spectator for a fun filled afternoon. The Cache Bar will be open, snacks, fondue and hot drinks will be available on a self service basis.
A ‘will attend’ log will help us plan the day and especially with catering!
Parking is at the house, please note our gateway is very narrow and the pillars are not forgiving!
We have no new caches to report, just some event reminders:
GC9ZPWC 9 Usual Suspects – Nosh & Natter 50 by 9 Usual Suspects When: Tuesday 27th September Where: Anglesey Arms, Harbour Front, Caernarfon LL55 1SG Time: 7pm to 9pm or when the last person leaves
Please note this N&N is on Tuesday night not Wednesday, also please log a ‘Will Attend’ if you intend to be there so that we have some idea on numbers.
GC9ZN6M Becky & Ralph On Tour by 3BearsUK When: Wednesday 28th September 2022 Where: The Black Bull Inn, Bangor, LL57 1NS Time: 6pm to 8pm or when the last person leaves
Becky and Ralph are on holiday, they are hosting the above event while here and would love to meet local and non local geocachers.
GC9ZVCP CITO 2022 Season 2 by 9 Usual Suspects D1/T2.5 When: Sunday 2nd October, 2022 Where: Dinas Dinlle, Caernarfon LL54 5TW Time: 11am to 1pm
Our task for the day will be to pick up as much litter as possible from the beach and car parking areas. We have given the event a terrain rating of 2.5 due to the steep banks around the hillfort, but there are wheelchair accessible areas along the promenade. By attending this event your efforts will be rewarded with the above souvenir.
TB Raffle 2022
We will be starting our TB raffle shortly, this year we are raffling 5 geocoins and 3 tags, the raffle will run until International Geocaching Day 2023 event. This raffle is our biggest fund raiser with the proceeds going to help fund the website, hiring of venues and any other expenses incurred with running 9US events. As I have purchased a bargain pack of 6 ticket books each containing a 1,000 tickets there is very little chance that we will run out of tickets again!
We would like to Thank Optimist on the run and the WM Mega for their donation of 3 coins.
Just a quick reminder of forth coming events, starting with tomorrows CITO.

At last we can report the Caernarfon By-Pass is now open seeing an end to the A487 delays and chaos from Llanwnda roundabout to Plas Menai roundabout Caernarfon. The planned opening on Friday was delayed to Saturday because of Storm Eunice. 17 major structures were built as part of the 9.8km scheme and 99% of the excavated materials were recycled and reused on the bypass. The project also includes improved active travel routes for walking and cycling in the area.
We have 4 new caches published recently in our area:
