2011 - Minnesota's 4th Annual Canoe-in Geocaching Event

Minnesota's 4th Annual Canoe-in Geocaching Event was held today, Saturday, August 20th, 2011 and turned out to be a wondrous success.  There were more geocachers than expected, we had spectacular weather, and the food was good and plentiful.

Like the previous three events, it was held in Dakota County's Miesville Ravine Park Preserve, located about four miles south of Miesville and six miles northeast of Cannon Falls.  The majority of geocachers paddled the Cannon River from Cannon Falls to Miesville Ravine, a 6.7 mile stretch of the river that is just gorgeous.  Others biked the Cannon Valley Trail from Cannon Falls to Welch.  And some geocachers just stopped in for the picnic.

Final attendence numbers as of August 23rd, 2011:

  • There were 28 RSVPs.
  • 36 have logged the event Attended.
  • 46 signatures were listed on the written log.
  • Physical headcount during the picnic was in excess of 52 attendees.
  • 5 dozen ears of sweet corn served.

Lessons learned from this event:

  • Bring more sweet corn next year.
  • Perhaps BOTH sides of the grill should be fired up next time?
  • Don't draw conclusions about absent geocachers as you'll more than likely be proven wrong.
  • Doublemoose can paddle with the best of them.
