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 .

1st Mega Event in Poland

Post by toczygroszek » Mon Jan 07, 2013 10:10 pm

Hi everyone!

I hope some of you remember me well. There are still some of my caches in Dublin area - adopted by other geocachers, or maintained by them. Speciat tahnks for them!

When I left Irealnd 3 years ago, there were only about 500 caches in Poland, much less than in Ireland. Now in my country geocaching grows up, so we have 4700 caches now. I'm pretty sure next year in Poland will be more caches than in Ireland :)
So we decided organize a Mega Event in Poland. There it is:

The only problem is, we can't use mega icon for that listing before +500 people will attened.
So if you ever think about visit Poland and find some caches, this is the best reason for that. In Górzno, where will be the Mega Event, there are fantastic caches with very big density. I will be very happy meet you in my country this time :)
