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 .

A Chatty Cache - Xmas event????

Post by Blue Jay » Tue Nov 18, 2014 10:41 am

Hi - Planning A Chatty Cache get together - maybe meet in Foam at around 6.30 / 7pm so that families could participate and then anyone who wants to go for a pint later could carry on from there, for the unofficial part of the evening. Would there be interest in this? Particularly in the family friendly part? If not we could just do the meet later for pints part..... Also looking at Friday 12th or Sat 13th? Any preferences?I know it's going to be hard to suit everyone, particularly at this time of year, but all feedback is welcome.

Great idea Eileen! I was toying with the idea of a pre-Christmas event if there wasn't going to be one. Either day suits me. Looking forward to it already :D

This seems like a great idea! Saturday would be better for me and who knows I might be able to stay on for a bit.

Sounds great.
However, sadly, I won't be there until the 26th of December, but will be staying for almost a month with the lovely Geo-Jennifer.
Hope everyone has a great time.
Merry Christmas.

Cheers from Canada.

I've Christmas parties both days, sadly, but I'd try to at least stick my head in the door for this. If it was the Thursday 11th it might be better... however one night out in a row kills me, let alone what three would do!
