however what about holding the event in Mildura ... a tri-state caching event?
Just yesterday I asked Mrs-Mix what she thought about an interstate event in Mildura in 2007 to which she said a few non-committal things like “mumble, mumble, geocaching, mumble, mumble. Which I take to mean “Great IdeaÂâ€

Maybe... Good Friday Apr 6 2007 to Easter Monday Apr 9 2007. It's about the only good block of time that is a Public Holiday in all states.

Cachestock 07 - Mildura

Go the whole hog - national event. Not all that hard to get to for anybody really, esp when you take caching populations in to account.

Geolympics

Cacheolympics

The idea being it's held every four years :?: This gives every state an opportunity to have their own state June caching events for the other three years.

Is there a big scout camp in/near mildura that we could use?

I know there is a huge mud bash camp held on one of the stations nearby. Maybe we could arrange to use that? Or the showgrounds?

was Geowoodstock III - I only know of this one because one of the Tassy Racing bugs went through it.

If publicity went out early enough, there may also be international interest.

It does seem an ideal location as it is central to the south eastern states and central to the over all geocacher density. Are their many/any geocachers living near there? does anyone go there regularly? If this event comes off and is a big as it could potentially be then there would need to be a relatively high number of caches and that will require some locals.

The Wagga crowd would be likely to attend. It's further than Dubbo, but closer than SA, so why not, I say. Good choice Mix.

One option would be for the type of event where all who enter have to take & place a cache, with the co-ords controlled by the event owner, so no duplicates - or none within the 160m rule....... you all give the co-ords & then everyone gets the co-ords for all the caches.

With 3+ states involved there could be 50+ teams ?????????????
Sounds like a big area might be needed.

AFIK Mildura is pretty much a geocacher desert. That's not to say that a few of us Vic's mightened be prepared to spend some weekends preparing.

The potential for caches up there within and hour of Mildura is almost endless - & in some top locations.
