North Wales Walking Festivals

Most of  the Walking Festivals in North Wales now have geocaching as an integral part of the event. Festivals at Rhuddlan, Prestatyn, Conwy, Pentrefoelas and Anglesey allowed some 70 people to enjoy an afternoon being introduced to the sport by expert help with free loan of pre-programmed GPS units. Some 50 caches were visited in all and many adults and children were inspired by the many opportunities which now lay before them. Every week a dozen or so caches are added to the total in Wales and this is a wonderful opportunity for more and more followers of this sport to get out into the countryside and enjoy this beautiful country

We can report a very successful geocaching event at the Crickhowell Walking Festival on Saturday and Sunday the 1st / 2nd of March and 8th / 9th of March. Caches were hidden a various places around Crickhowell and the grid references and clues as to their whereabouts were published on the internet. Special tokens were distributed to each cache for the geocachers to collect and, on each weekend, the first team to collect a set of tokens and hand it in to the Tourist Information Centre received a prize. There was also an area set aside where geocachers met to talk about geocaching and exchange travel bugs. 50 teams competed and the whole event was a great success. Thanks goes to Sambedr for 2 brilliant weekends. Full details can be read here and pics can be seen here
