BEGINNERS’ GUIDE TO GEO-CACHING

Learn the secrets of geo-caching in Cae Glas Park!

WHEN:Tuesday, 22nd April 2014 at 11am

WHAT IS GEOCACHING?: Basically it is a high tech treasure hunt.

Instead of a paper map to follow you use a hand held GPS (globel positioning system) unit to find locations.

WHERE: Meet at the bandstand, Cae Glas Park, Oswestry.

The session will be solely in the park

COST: £3 per adult, children under 16 free.

A cash deposit of £20 will be payable on the day for the handset.

It will be returned at the end of the session in return for the handset.

NOTE: No unaccompanied children.

At the end of the session you should feel confident enough to continue geocaching on your smartphone.
