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 .

Pre-event meet n'eat

Post by abbeyackbar » Mon Jun 30, 2014 9:08 pm

Hey all,

I plan to be in Bray around 1830 on Wednesday pre night caching event. I'm going to get dinner in one of the restaurants around from the DART station. Just throwin it out there if anyone has the same idea and wants to meet up for food and chat.

Will be enjoying the delights of Aer Lingus in-flight dining at this time. I know where I would rather be!

Sheesh, it's hard to get a date around here :lol: Whats a gal gotta do...Did I mention I was buying? Oops!-too late now :D

Thankfully It wasn't a table for one at the restaurant. I had the pleasure of the company of theswerve 8) Thanks for that and the geo-chat, hints and tips and the ride! :)

That was an event to remember, where the host was a no-show! but the sugary, chocolatey, gooey goodness provided by the wonderful sarahmur (which is her official title now :wink:) was a greatly appreciated consolation :hi (There's always room for dessert 8))
