Autumn is here again! The air is cool and crisp, and the leaves are putting on their coats of many colors. It's my favorite time of year and also the anniversary of the creation of the Fredericksburg Geocachers. So let's get together and celebrate!!

The location is the same as last year, a very nice recreational facility located behind the Dumfries-Triangle Fire Station on Rte.1 just north of the main gate to the Quantico Marine Base. It’s ours from 9 AM till whenever we care to leave. It features a covered pavilion, a built-in grill stocked with propane, children’s play area, volleyball and basketball courts, electricity, a sound system, and indoor plumbing. There will be good food, games, door prizes, and music.
The listed coordinates are for the parking area. You need to enter from Old Triangle Road, which runs behind the fire station and parallel to Rte. 1. From the south, get off 95 at exit 150, Triangle/Quantico and bear right on the ramp. Go through the intersection at Rte. 1 as if you’re heading on to the base, and make the very next left onto Fuller Heights Rd. Then take the next left onto Old Triangle. The entrance will be on your left about a mile north. From the north, take exit 152A, Rte. 234 towards Dumfries. Turn right onto Rte. 1, left on Graham Park Rd, and right onto Old Triangle. Entrance will be on the right. A sign will be placed there to make it easier for you to find us.

We’d love to see lots of old and new friends, including members of other Geocaching clubs, visiting geocachers, and any friends or family you care to bring. Kids and pets are welcome, and the entire area is fenced in so you don’t have to worry about them wandering off. You may arrive any time after 9 AM, and lunch will be served around noon. Meats for grilling, condiments, plates, napkins, eating utensils, and cups will be provided. Please bring along a dish to share…desserts, veggies, salads, snacks and such…and your beverage of choice. Please let us know what you’ll be bringing with your *Will Attend* log so we can keep track.

A bookmark list of area caches will be posted to this page if you'd like to get in some hunting. Keep checking this listing for updates.

This event is rain or shine. The main pavillion is well sheltered, so we can still have lunch and a good time no matter what Mother Nature sends our way.

See ya’ there.
