8th Annual City of Foley Geo Weekend starts Feb. 28
The City of Foley will be hosting its 8th annual City of Foley Geo Weekend on Feb 28, Feb 29, and Mar 1. The Foley Public Library began hosting geocaching event weekends back in Feb 2013. The City joined in sponsoring the weekends in Feb 2014. The first event of the weekend will be a City of Foley Meet & Greet (GC8JPJQ.) This will be held at a local Mexican restaurant beginning at 6 pm on Fri, Feb 28. Come to share a meal (geocachers are responsible for their own meals,) visit with geo-friends both old and new, and maybe win a prize or two. The second event of the weekend will be a City of Foley Scavenger Hunt/Poker Run (GC8JNNT) held at the Foley Public Library beginning at 2 pm. Come prepared to find locations in the library & to gather scavenger hunt items. Turn in these items for playing cards and create a “winning” poker hand from your cards. Prize tickets will be given to all who create a poker hand and the top three hands will win an extra prize ticket. Prizes will be drawn for starting at 4:30 pm. The final event of the weekend will be a City of Foley CITO (GC8JNP8.) This is a cache in/trash out event where we pick up trash in the area to thank the City of Foley for sponsoring such a fun weekend. CITO sites will be handed out from behind the Foley Public Library starting at 10 am. A special dump site will also be given out. All who come to help will receive a small “thank you” prize. Don’t forget to log your “Will Attend” at the GC codes for each event. These can be used via any geocaching app or at www.geocaching.com.
