Geocaching Friday Lunch Club

A couple of local geocachers, who also happen to be good friends of mine, host a monthly "Friday Lunch Club" event.  They pick a restaurant, release an event page and any geocachers are welcome to come join in the fun.  You can stay for 10 minutes, long enough to sign the log sheet, or you can stay the entire 1 1/2 hours.  It's a great way to have some lunch, visit with your friends and meet new geocachers.  At the last event I went to, we had cachers visiting from Germany.  You never know who you may meet.

This month's Lunch Club took place on a Saturday, to sort of allow for cachers who work during the week to get a chance to attend. 

This is Tom, host of the event.......

And his wife, Mary.....

Now you're probably wondering why in the world Tom is posing next to a speed limit sign.  Well , that's because one of the cachers made a TB (travel bug) out of that sign.   Hehehe.  I thought that was pretty good.  We all signed the back of it and another cacher took it to move it along at another event.

There was a box to drop and retrieve TB's.....

About 45 people showed up, which was a pretty good turnout for a lunch crowd.  The food at Jasons Deli is really good.  I had a yummy bowl of cauliflower/cheese soup and a corned beef sandwich.  They even have an ice cream bar for FREE ice cream sundaes.  You can't beat that!

During the lunch a couple of new caches were released in the area, so a bunch of us ran out to do them....

Believe it or not, my dad is inside this tree, grabbing the cache....

Which was, coincidentally, my 1700th cache!!  Yeah Milestones!

So the next time you see an area event, you might want to stop by.  They're a wonderful way to spend the day and get to know your fellow geocachers.

CacheCrazy has all kinds of scary stuff going on over there for Fright Week.  Why don't you stop by and say Happy Halloween???

  5. Della: "Good eats, treats, friends and fun" would be an excellent cache name!
