When I established the forums in 2005 it was to offer a more richer web experience and greater functionality than the platform where we started this social adventure in 2003, Yahoo Groups. The forums were once a busy hive of activity and provided locals and visitors with a wealth of information just like the Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group on Facebook today.

It was a time where we didn't have the many social media platforms we have today, and it was a different time in terms of mobility and technology. There was no instant access to information, no Google Maps and a very limited base map on your GPSr. Mobile connectivity for me was a 9600bps Infrared connection from a Nokia to a laptop and in later times to a PDA using WAP.

As we moved into the social media era so did our forums users. Geocaching Ireland moved there too, and we have a thriving community on the Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group on Facebook. As a result, forum activity isn't what it used to be and I have taken the decision to disable new registrations to the forums and to make the forums read only so any information there can still be accessed.

The discussion hasn't ended, it has just moved. Join us on the Facebook Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group .

Re: Mega 2014: Ayr Racecourse (near Prestwick Airport)

+1 an enjoyable event. Got absolutely soaked on the motorbike but hey-ho, you take your chances. Glad to see that Ireland was well represented at same. Had my first ever taste of haggis at the Ceilidh .... it was actually better than what I was expecting. Perhaps the nice sauce that came with it had...

Likewise, we'll hopefully tick off a few boxes at the Mega - not long now, was printing out tickets & stuff for it the other day. Can't wait!

Sozzles, typical that would happen. Cleared off on holiday after my glory and missed the opportunity to post. Pity cause I had one in mind too.
