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 .

I know there is a thread on Geocaching.com about this, but I am trying to find out who will be attending.
This will be my 1st Milkshake Event and Im hoping to meet a few of yous to put names to faces.

People usually register their "Will Attend" on the cache page.
Every time though more people turn up than register their interest.
To get a very rough figure of who and how many keep an eye on the cache page.
Milkshake Event #006
So far 6 have said they "Will Attend".

Milkshake Event #001
Will Attend: 16
Actual: 26

Milkshake Event #002
Will Attend: 12
Actual: 20

Milkshake Event #003
Will Attend: 17
Actual: 30

Milkshake Event #004
Will Attend: 14
Actual: 27

Milkshake Event #005
Will Attend: 14
Actual: 29

As you can see, it's pretty hard to say for sure how many will turn up.
Milkshake Event #002 was the wettest event so far - may have contributed to the lowest turnout.

Kevin I would much rather you add the spread sheet you have with this data. I think it would make it much easier to compare trends.

Will keep an eye on the cache page then, but it seems like a fairly good turnout everytime.
I've only met one other fellow cacher who was from Germany for the weekend and getting a few in Belfast.

Can thoroughly recommend - they're quite a friendly lot & it is great to chat with others that are so passionate about the sport too!

kevin i reckon you should perform a correlational analysis using spss. a partial correlation controlling for weather would be good too and also a regression analysis. failing that you cant go wrong with a good old histogram to spread graphical awareness as to the statistics you hold. :)
