  • May 2, 2009 · 10:00 AM

WWFM V - World Wide Flash Mob - San Diego's Old Town
Be a part of geocaching history!

This is a Flash Mob Gathering of Geocachers
Only 15 minutes long! You MUST be present and sign a log sheet DURING this time to claim the event.
Please BYOP! (Bring your own pen)


Summary: The Basic Idea

This event is part of the WWFM IV - World Wide Flash Mob coordinated events (see growing bookmark list)
Thousands of geocachers at dozens of events all around the globe, gathering at the same time

Flash Mob I - May 2007 - Balboa Park (video) - almost 200 local geocachers; 20 world-wide events
WWFM II - Nov 2007 - Belmont Park in Mission Beach (video) - 4400 attendees / 83 events / 9 countries
WWFM III - May 2008 - Coronado near the Ferry Landing - 8000 attendees / 163 events / 15 countries
WWFM IV - Nov 2008 - San Diego Bay at the U.S.S. Midway - 7400 attendees / 154 events / 20 countries

THIS TIME, join us at San Diego's Historic Old Town for fun, food, prizes and more - all in 15 minutes. Stick around afterwards to enjoy the shops, restaurants, museums and caching!


The Plan

The event will begin precisely at 10:00am on Saturday, May 2nd.
An Orange Bucket full of Nice Swag placed on ground zero will signal the start of the event!!!
The event will be facilitated by volunteers. If you'd like to be a WWFM volunteer, please contact us ([masked]) and let us know.

Prior to the start time, mosey and wander about non-challantly ... Then when the bucket is set down ... converge on the Ground Zero! N 32°[masked] W 117° 11.830

If any muggles are curious about the event we will have a volunteer hand out fliers that explain geocaching.

More plans to come, so add this event to your watchlist!

    great event - to meet fellow geocachers and to see a new part of san diego.
    it was well timed with the cinco de mayo celebrations that we could all go to after the flash mob.

    It was a beautiful day. This is a great area to explore - great history, good food, lots of shopping options, lovely gardens, and some incredible caches!

    The WWFM V Event went smoothly, all of the volunteers did a great job. The only part that bothered me was during the "meal" that came after the CITO ... I found at least a dozen Hershey Kisses wrappers all over the ground! A few of us scrambled to pick up what we could and still get in the picture. Do we really need to make an announcement NOT to litter after we just had a CITO?

    What a great turnout of local cachers! Lots of familiar faces, but lots of new cachers too! The CITO was a nice addition this time!
