A Very Special Visitor

We will be hosting a very special guest this year, another 16 year geocaching veteran and lackey from Geocaching HQ, one could say he was the very first reviewer but we really can’t give anything away just yet so Mum’s the word, keep it quiet!
We look forward to a “Will Attend” log in the near future as we hastily rearrange our session schedule to squeeze in a “Meet the Man from HQ” question and answer type session.
All will be revealed as we finalise the details, watch this space…
