FCC 2017 The Last Spike

On the rail trail between Wild Goose Beach and Sunnyside Beach Road there is about 12km of railtrail that's been opened up for recreational use in the last few years. For this year's FCC, we'll be hiding caches along the rail (either as an Easterner or a Westerner) and riding/hiking the trail to find them. If things work out, we'll have one group starting at the Eastern end of the trail (Sunnyside Beach) and another group starting at the Western end of the trail (Wild Goose Beach.) We'll meet at the "Last Spike" in the middle for a quick event at the half-way time.

If you would like to participate by hiding some caches, contact shroomAzoom and he'll assign you a 1km "block" of railtrail to hide your caches in. That means there are 12 "blocks" for 12 hiders. However many caches you hide in your block (three is a good number to aim for,) where you hide them, how close to the railtrail (try to keep them reasonably close,) is up to you.

On the day of the event (Sunday, Oct 1) the Western hiders will start at the far Eastern end of the trail at 1:30pm and start caching their way westward. The Eastern hiders will do the same from the far Western end of the trail and work eastward. At 3pm we'll hammer in the "Last Spike" at the meeting point of the trail. You are then free to continue caching the other end of the trail, or to head back and pick up any caches that you may have missed along the way.

If you want to join in finding caches, but won't hide any (come on, hide a cache, or at least help someone fill their block up) come on out and join the fun and meet at the "Last Spike" event.
