Parker Dam Event

It took five tries before we were actually able to attend, but we finally made it to the Fifth Annual Parker Dam Event. This annual event has always sounded like fun and our friends who attend each year always tell us they enjoy it. It's at the edge of a day trip for us, but we were in Pennsylvania and made this a priority.

The event is hosted by Redbat who owned the Legacy of Conservation GeoTrail and now has the CCC Legacy of Conservation GeoTrail. It was a super event. It was our type of event. We love hanging out with friends at a super park (think lower-key ASP Geobash). We were happy to see so many friends and be able to visit in a quiet setting. We were also finally able to see the legendary ammo can toss. We knew cachers stood at the beach and tossed ammo cans onto the beach. It was everything we expected. Everyone laughed and had fun. If we can make arrangements to be here, we will be sure to be back.

Redbat talks about the now ended Legacy of Conservation GeoTrail and the opening CCC GeoTrail.

The crowd gathers for the ammo can toss.



and Geokids all participated.

The flags show a close competition.

The awards ceremony

Gwen was really happy there was a temporary cache placed just for geodogs. Phineas is Phinicky on the trail and won't eat treats.

It's a lot easier to have a great event when the weather is this wonderful and the location is super.
