Sat. 7/20/13 a special event honoring Rustynails. 10,000 finds.

1. Pizza at 5:30 Umbria Pizza Lyndale and Old Shakopee Rd dutch treat as usual

2. A special cache, 7:00 pm meet at 112 st and Queen Ave so . We can share and do the victory dance together of a FTF

3. Rusty's bowling event at 8:30 GC4C8NG

Come to one, two or all three events

The special cache will be a grid filler for some. A very hard to find Golden Ammo box. 5/4 rating. This will be the best time to get it.

Copngratulations, Rusty. What an awesome turnout for dinner and your tribute cache. I couldn't stick around for the bowling event, so I don't know if there was a big turnout for that too. It was great to see so many people, most of whom I haven't talked to for a while. Thanks for organizing it butcher, Two of Hearts and Purple Puppy.

Very Happy What a great way to celebrate 10,000 finds. Thank You butcherandswimmer and all my friends that could make it and my family from South Dakota. Good friends and good pizza and lots of caching talk.

I was very honored and touched by Patrick's Speech and the beautiful 10,000 tribute coin from Patrick and Barb. THANK YOU so much for a very memorable and fun tribute event. Very Happy

I've always said geocachers are the nicest people one could meet. Happy caching to everyone! Cool

Haven't made many WNC's lately, but thus would have been a good one. Wish I could have been there Rusty, congrats on the huge milestone!
