The couple that hosts the Podcacher video blogs originated World Wide Flash Mobs after attending a mega event several years ago. A mega event is designed to have a large number of cachers gather at the same time at the same place at one spot in the world. World Wide Flash Mobs (WWFM) were designed to have a similar but opposite approach: have many events at many locations around the world - but at the same time!
One of the events for WWFM X will be held in downtown Madison, Alabama. The host for this event attended two of the early WWFM events hosted by the Podcachers themselves. This event will be structured as they do theirs! You can read more at the "official" event posting on geocaching.com:
Please RSVP on that site also! To verify, all WWFM X events are scheduled to start at 10:00 AM Pacific time, which translates to NOON Central time!
As a reminder, this is a FLASH mob! Please do not arrive early or begin to congregate until the appearance of the orange bucket (as seen in the pic in front of the carousel at the flash mob on 01/01/11).
Everyone is invited to donate fabulous [geocaching related] items to be awarded as door prizes and for winning (or not) the intense "Derby Day Hat Competion".
Since we'll be within feet of the Main Street Cafe, on... Main Street (duh), we will gather there around noon-thirty for lunch - and maybe hang out until the Derby Day festival starts on Main Street around 3:00 PM. (There is also a Mexican restaurant across the street).
