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 .

GC49JZ4 Northwest Event - Fermanagh (Summer BBQ)

Post by theswerve » Wed Jun 12, 2013 3:11 pm

Anyone heading up and needs a lift...3-4 places...3 in comfort

Plan at moment..Leave dub at about 9.30 to 10.00 and head to east side of Lough Erne area to pick up a few caches and then head to the event....After event head back to Dub arrive back roughly at midnight.
Easily changed if needs be..

I really wanted to go to this event (if only for the giant TB that's to be there : ) ) but I'm not free to go anymore (sniff :( ) and the offer of a lift would have been much appreciated too! Thanks anyways.
