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 .

Convoy to a tree! 15th May 2013, 2pm, Great Date Challenge!

Post by THE_Chris » Thu May 09, 2013 8:35 pm

Odies Crew and the gang are coming down to Dublin on WEDNESDAY 15th MAY to do the Great Date Puzzle Challenge and Monkey See Monkey Do, both of which are in the Phoenix Park and are up trees.

If you're not a tree climber, now is a good time to log these two caches! We're meeting at 2pm at the nearby carpark, N53 21.331 W6 20.928, to scope the area. (Sorry its in working hours, can't help that, so book leave!)

A favor: Odies Crew have a ladder but they would rather not lug it down from the north. DO ANY DUBLIN CACHERS WHO CAN ATTEND THIS MINI-EVENT HAVE A BIG LADDER WE CAN USE? Great Date is 9m high, so it would have to be a good big one - a stepladder probably won't hack it. It would help a lot if you have one we can borrow. Please get in contact with me!

Obviously this can't be an official caching Event as its solely to go caching, but hopefully we will still get a nice group of people together to crack these most evil of caches!

Not everyone went up - :evil: :twisted: -

Did you all chose the 15th as your date for doing puzzles?
