WE HAVE ARRIVED

Well, it has happened. velocache.net is now a fully operational battle station. Prepare yourselves.

Before I digress, which I am known to do, let me start off by giving some credit and handing out some thanks. This would not have happened without you all. You know who you are. Thank you. The new site would not be in existance without Buttars, if you run into him, give him a hug and buy him a beer. HUGE thank yous to the veterans out there who have kept this afloat in times of trouble and triumph...I have personal things to say to you that will have to wait until we have a face to face.

At the pokercache party on September 19 I would really like to take a bit of all of your time and preach a little about "the game". We'll see, I will probably just get drunk and cry a lot.

SO. Go to the site. Familiarize yourself. It is different than the one we play on now but can do all of the things we do now AND MUCH MUCH MORE. You will need to create an account. It is free and always will be for players. I realize some of you have already been in and have looked around but it is time for everyone to come on board. Texting from a phone to the site works. E-mailing too. There is a great forum feature that we can all cache ourselves in as well. This site is still in beta. It is not finished so now is the time to see if we can break it.

For now, play around. Posting "real" caches is not off limits but I think it might serve us better to get really comfortable with the new toy before we go "live". Post pictures of your cats and dogs. Go to the forum and talk about bikes. Have fun.

LOVE to you all. -A. Mortician

Poker velocache & BBQ Saturday

I would like to get a headcount for Saturday because I plan to provide enough hot dogs, hamburgers, and veggie burgers for all who RSVP. You supply either a side dish or beverage....when in doubt, always bring beer! ;-)

So far, I know A. Mortician, Sore Bloke, Velovixen, Captain Fran, Cocky Bitch, Treker, and Lanius are in attendance. Anyone else? There will also be several of my friends who aren't velocachers (future velocachers??!!) in the mix!

DATE SET: Sept 19, at the Regotti Estate, 4310 Douglas Street, Boise. Poker hands revealed at 7:30PM sharp. Side bets allowed. You are welcome to attend even if you haven't found any poker cards!

Drinks will start flowing around 4. Grilling around 6. It is kind of potluck style and BYOB, although I will probably have a large batch of mojitos mixed up. Expect some bike sprint races to follow awards!

See you Saturday!

  8. Is it just me or did the new site kill Velocaching? I mean I know it's cold now, but even in the fall I didn't want to participate due to the difficulty and annoying new tasks included on the site. Props to those that continued the game, but really can we just go back to this blog site and have fun again?

    Go back to last Feb and March on velocache.blogspot.com - and see how happy we all were before tubes, rules, captcha.....
