Geocaching in Morestead
Geocaching is a great way to explore new areas and have some LOLz at the same time. It's a bit like orienteering combined with treasure hunting. The aim is to find hidden containers such as fake rocks, pine cones, and camouflaged dinosaurs. Each container/geocache contains a logbook to sign before moving onto the next one, taking in the sights as you go from one location to the other. Morestead is next on our list of places to visit (thanks to Gary for the suggestion!). There's a circular countryside path with about 12 geocaches to find en route, starting and ending outside Morestead Church (our meeting point). Guess you might say we couldn't have picked a Morestead-y path... After geocaching we'll head to The Bridge Inn in Shawford for drinks, early dinner and card games for those who fancy it. Looking forward to seeing you there!

Upcoming Meetups

What we're about

This group is aimed at anyone roughly in the 20 to 40 age range around the Winchester area, we organise a bunch of difference social events each month that you are welcome to attend. Come along, make new friends, have fun, do stuff!

Importantly, the membership fee is one beer for Lyndon upon request ;)

WHAT'S GOING ON?

We have regular Meetups throughout the year like drinks nights and a monthly pub quiz - both of which are a great way for new members to meet and mingle. We also keep a regular calendar of seasonal events including:

* SUMMER: Hat Fair Saturday / A big group picnic/lawn games day
* AUTUMN: Halloween / Bonfire Night events
* WINTER: Secret Santa Sunday Lunch / German Market Meetups

Alongside that, we have our big two payday New Members Nights:

* At the end of Jan/start of Feb - when everyone's finally got cash again post-Christmas
* And in September - when the city seems to see the largest no. of newcomers

Dotted around all of that you'll also find bespoke one-offs pop up now and then.

Favourites in the past have included:

* Geocaching walks
* Restaurant dinners
* Board game nights
* Lazy day pub gatherings
* Cinema outings

Plus some more adventurous outings further afield, like:
* Country walks
* Bank holiday city trips
* Roller discos
* Water park bookings
* Camping weekenders

ABOUT POSTING MEETUPS

Since Meetup changed the permissions, only group admins can post Meetups. Booo!

However, our organisers are a friendly enough bunch. Some of them even communicate using words instead of grunting and pointing! So please do contact one of them if you have either a vague idea of something you'd like to do, or a more concrete plan for a Meetup - whether it's from the list above, or something new altogether. Alternatively, if you'd like to gauge interest, try the discussions board. (It's all very civil and mature. Honest).

WANT TO BE AN ORGANISER?

If you'd like to get involved in posting and hosting on a regular basis, let us know on the site or at a Meetup. We're particularly on the lookout for at least a couple of female organisers, so if you'd like to help keep the group ticking over with ideas and social plans, please drop Lyndon a message.
