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 .

Feel really chuffed Spark. First time I have ever heard Sligo as being described as exotic.
Would love to host an event in Exotic Sligo sometime, but not in March.

Yep, Dave go for it but if it is possible and suits all, try to make it before the 15th. Off to the High Atlas on 15th and not back till well into June.
Sligo would be fab for an event in any case!! :D

Simplest form is to organise a venue for a meal or just somewhere to sit and chat where food and/or drink can be bought.

You can make things more complicated by arranging an activity for during the day but you'll find that even if you don't people will still come and they will spend the day caching.

The trend recently has been to organise a large number of caches for release the day before or the day of the event but to be honest there are loads of great caches in Sligo area already and you will have enough stress worrying about the venue or a possible activity without also worrying about putting out loads of new caches.

If it is organised for Easter time, I will be able to attend, as I am sure lots of people would. Sounds like a good plan. :D

If I were you I would follow Dino's advice. Some great caches in Sligo and the area. Just pick a date that suits you and all whom it suits will be there. Looking forward to it-if it suits. [-o<
