The 2016 Geolympix Mega is brought to you by a dedicated team of volunteers, but we can't do everything by ourselves!
There are many ways to help support the Geolympix, and by doing so, also support charities and the UK MAZE Fund.
The Geolympix Mega Event is a free to attend, not-for-profit event, yet its organisation requires considerable financial and practical
support. Venue costs, insurance and coin production are just the tip of the iceberg.
The organisers are taking on individual liabilities but attendees and non-attendees alike can help a lot.
This is a caching-community event by - and for - geocachers.
Help the Geolympix confirm Mega status:
The Geolympix became the first UK Mega to regain Mega status, on February 1st 2016; six months before the big day. Thank you to
everyone who followed the request below (which still stands!) and helped us hit the 300 Will Attend logs we needed. It makes a huge difference to
Register your Will Attend log - complete with how many people who use the same caching account will be coming with you to the event -
at GC5XXYY - GEOLYMPIX : ASHRIDGE 2016. If you could also say how many of them are youngsters
and if you're bringing a dog or dogs, that would also be appreciated. It'll help us plan.
Help promote the Geolympix by:
Help fund the Geolympix by:
- Adding a link to GC5XXYY, the event page on your cache listings.
- Linking to the event on your logs. Simply adding 'Don't miss the Geolympix: http://coord.info/gc5xxyy' will produce 'Don't miss the Geolympix: (visit link)'
- Talking about it with your caching friends, via Facebook, Twitter or in person - perhaps at events?
- Add an Email signature line to your caching mails. How about "Visit the Geolympix - GC5XXYY! Ashridge, Sunday July 31st 2016. Geolympix.org"?
- Putting a Geolympix Banner Graphic on your cache page/s. You've a choice: Large - Medium - Small - Please make them clickable if you can!
