Gold Coast Christmas Gathering 2013
As I knew this event was coming up while Madeleine and Mikayla would be staying with me I made the decision to go, even though it was a two hour drive.
Kevin was interested as well, so he, Adele and Angus came down to the Gold Coast as well and we all met up at Pacific Park where the event was being held.
We had a great afternoon meeting fellow cachers. Some were becoming familiar faces after earlier events, some were new, but all were very friendly and chatty. And guess what? Even Santa arrived with a bag full of presents...

Since we were close to a real cache, as Kevin had worked out beforehand, we went for a little walk and found
The cache was a small magnetic, and I mean small :-) However, we are used to it by now and Kevin found it in no time. This time we remembered to take a picture, so here we go:
We were in for a surprise too, because one of the presents was the coordinates for a soon to be published puzzle cache that we could search for and log during the event.

The event itself was such a success that the organiser is thinking about making it an annual event. Let's hope so. We quite enjoyed ourselves, but in the meantime.... hoping to add a few more caches during the year.
