Twinew 2016
« on: August 11, 2015, 06:13:56 pm »
It's a bit early to start talking about this, but always good to get discussion going and ideas bouncing about  :)

With regards to the date, we could go with Sunday 27th Dec OR Sunday 3rd Jan - depending on whether the Imber event clash bothers us?

No idea at the moment when it comes to the venue. Think the village hall format works well, but then again it's always nice to have an event in a pub so I'd be happy to arrange things as I did in 2012 if that's what we want :)

If we're too busy to place caches this time round, I recall that Marrow Bone emailed StrongsRus (who forwarded it to me) offering to place a series for a future CW event, so I could contact him to see if he's still interested?

Looking forward to your comments  :)

With family, it's not until a few weeks before Christmas I know what I'm doing but we normally have a get together on Boxing Day and then another day upt norf, before heading back down. So, the 27th might not be possible for me.

Thanks for sharing that @Baddesley bodgers

As TJ has logged a Will Attend and I'd maybe like to go too, is everyone happy to postpone this one to Sunday January 3rd?

This also gives us just a little more time. Could call it 'Twinew' but I do like the 'Twixmas' name  :D

Now to get the ball rolling with regards to the location...

That's fine with me, as I've already said I might not be around on the 27th December and that's looking more likely now, could well be still upt norf.

Has anyone got an idea with regards to location?

I guess the best way of thinking about it is working out where we'll place the caches - I suppose we could walk my new series, as I'll hopefully have time to place it before - but, then again, maybe not as I will be very busy in the coming weeks and it could be an extra stress.

Also, the problem with group walks is that hardly anyone gets to see the caches, and there were going to be a few special ones on the series, so that's the only thing which makes me think perhaps this isn't the sort of series for an event, especially since the route is 6.2 miles - we normally say 5ish max!  :-\

If anyone was planning something slightly shorter, we could have a look for a venue around there?

Griff - If you have some special ones in your new series, I would keep this as a separate series and not use it for Twixmas, as the walk is quite a social walk with some caching added in :) Also, 6.2 miles is a bit long for the Twixmas walk.

Have to put thinking cap on and see.

I've had my thinking cap on as well but no luck yet.

Will any of us be able to place the caches? If so then we can find a location that way, but if not I can email Marrow Bone to see if he still can, as he offered months ago.

Also: January 3rd. I suggested this date, and every other date I have suggested has brought bad weather along with it. Should we change it?  ;) :D

Not as yet, been more thinking about: GIFF, our village bonfire night, new village hall and not been caching for a while :(

Perhaps a good move would be to email Marrow Bone who last year offered to place some caches for a future Twixmas event.

If he says yes and has an idea of where to place them, that could be a good way forward to focus in on possible venues.

Is everyone happy for me to do this?

If he says he can't (which is likely) we'll cross that bridge when we come to it  :D

I'm just wondering, were you planning to potentially place some caches for this one @walktall, @Wrighty, or anyone else?

Don't worry if not, it's just so that I can give Marrow Bone a more concrete answer if none of us can do it  :)
