Its update time for the Alexandra MEGA Event that is coming up in November….
1st – A couple of members of the organizing committee had our first meeting with the president of the showground’s committee this week onsite and had a good look around. There is plenty of room to spread out and lots of undercover areas if the weather should dare to be inclement. There is also a large area for non-powered camping as well as a limited number of sites available for powered camping. These sites will be on sale through the showground’s committee soon and we will provide you with the contact details once they have worked out a suitable layout for the camping.
The first of the Geocoins went on sale a couple of weeks ago. This one is a very special limited edition coin that will only be available for purchase between now and the 9th of April this year. There will certainly be other geocoins available for purchase through the year and of course at the event, but this one is strictly pre-purchase only and can ONLY be purchased between now and the 9th of April. For this coin only, all proceeds are to be donated to the 4 fabulous Geocaching Melbourne teams who are completing the Oxfam Trailwalker event this year. So if you want to get yourself a wonderful geocoin that is sure to be a collector’s item in the future, as well as support the Geocaching Melbourne members who are all walking 100 kilometers for the Oxfam charity, this coin is fantastic value at only $25. Purchases can be made through our website, just follow this link.
Merchandise has been on sale for a while now and little by little we are seeing more and more very creative “The Alexandra Event” clothing appearing at events and in photographs taken all over the state. It’s quite easy to do to, just head over to our spreadshirt shop at http://ax2017.spreadshirt.com.au/ and start creating. Not only t-shirts, but aprons, hats, beanies, pants, shorts, backpacks, mugs, phone cases, umbrellas, bandanas and even a pillow case if you so desire!
The 10 months to MEGA event at Pakenham went off amazingly well on the 15th of January. The next one is on at Wedderburn on the 18th of February and then another one at a new location each month. Remember, there are prizes available to those who attend multiples of these events, so get out and explore the countryside, meet some locals and maybe win some prizes!
Finally, we would like to take this opportunity to introduce the organizing committee for Alexandra. It is a good mix of locals, new members and some experienced ones too. The organizing committee this year is…
Ahomburg, LouiseAnn, TeamSmokeyBear, day1976, Clever Monkey, scody, º, xsurfergirlx and BernieH
Hoping you are all enjoying your geocaching and look forward to seeing you in November.
The Alexandra Event Organizing Committee.
