INTRODUCTION TO
GPSGAMES.ORG EVENT
(FLYINGPITA'S FARM IN MARION, NC)





This is part of a series of geocache events to introduce the local geocachers to GPSgames.org! This series will take you to several parks and other areas of western North Carolina.

The fourth installment to the series will be at the farm of Flyingpita in Marion, NC. Flyingpita holds a yearly chili cook-off and we have been invited to participate and introduce geocachers to GPSgames.org.



You may have been geocaching on the "other" site for a while. You have found many caches, but you will eventually ask yourself, "What else can I do with this GPSr?" Luckily, there is more, much more, you can do using your GPSr.

This event is the first in McDowell County to introduce you to the other games available on GPSGames.org. GPSGames.org offers traditional geocaching, but offers you many more games to keep you entertained.

The "Introduction To GPSgames - Marion, NC" event will be held on Saturday, March 14th, 2009 around 4:00 PM at Flyingpita's farm in Marion, NC.

Once the chili cook-off contest is over, we will start the event. There will be no new GPSgames geocaches hidden for this event, but there are several geocaches listed on other sites hidden in the area.

Topics discussed will be the many games of GPSGames.org. Here are a few to be discussed:
