MEGA Finland 2011:
Geocaching in Tampere, 12 to 14 August

Dear fellow geocachers in Minnesota!

The first mega-sized geocaching event ever organised in Finland will be held in Tampere next summer, 12 to 14 August. Geocachers and their families and friends from all over the world are warmly welcome to join this extraordinary Nordic adventure!

The main venue of the event will be a unique Geocaching Village just a few kilometres from the centre of the city. In the village, there are several accommodation options for up to 1000 participants.

Please visit the cache listing at http://coord.info/GC2G855. Groundspeak has wished that people would send their Will attend logs as soon as possible. Then they are able to change the cache icon to a Mega-Event Icon.

Once again and on behalf of the great organising teams and all the volunteers:

Welcome to MEGA Finland 2011! Let's meet and geocache in Tampere![/b]

And here I was thinking the event would be in Finland, Minnesota. It does appear that there is a cache there. Very Happy

k, I was joking before, but the 4 person hostel room is only around $31/person/night (before the Geocacher discount)....I wouldn't mind going if everything else works out...
