March 13th 2017

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 .

#-o How did I fall for that! Every competition entrant should know to look for the catch. I guess that's number twelve on the list?

Twelve: Always read the small print :)

Discover Ireland are doing alot of work trying to promote holidaying in Ireland. As well as the competition mentioned above, they are giving a breakaway every weekday for the whole of August through Q102.

http://www.q102.ie/utilities/content-page.aspx?id=2250

"Starting Tuesday 3rd August 2010, join Liam Coburn on Dublin's Q102's More music Breakfast Show as he reveals the Summer Song of The Day at 7.15. Hear that song played again before 5pm that day and text the word WIN to 57102 for 20 cent. Texter 102 wins that day's break!

I won today's break away! \:D/ a 2 night break in Limerick. Neither of us have been there before and we've no caches found there yet either 8) Yayyyy!!!!

Lisa made it through to this weeks final. €100 voucher already securred and a 1/10 chance of the car.

She also got a phone call from my sister who is picking up our post while in cork. She won a trip to Sligo including flying from Dublin and kite surfing lessons when we get there. :D :D :D

That's fantastic! Nice just to get the €100 voucher 8) I've been meaning to try for it, but I was focused on 98fm's cash call. My mom was called this morning and she won €1,000! I had heard the cash call total and was able to tell her the answer to win. Great news about the Sligo trip too! Keep up the winning =D> I'll keep my fingers crossed for you to win the car, that is unless I qualify this week too of course :wink:

Well done guys :mrgreen:
Some gal would giggle and I'd get red
And some guy'd laugh and I'd bust his head,
