Groundspeak just posted a new “Holiday Card” on their Youtube channel. Enjoy!

Just a quick reminder that the TAG Christmas gathering is tonight at 6:00pm, at the Kelsey’s Restaurant (Millcreek and Erin Mills Parkway) in Mississauga. The event page is GC2JATT.  The event currently has 70 people signed up (as of 2:00pm). While the main seating area holds 50 people, there’s room to spill over into the main restaurant as well.  Make sure you check the event page before showing up for any last minute information

Also, please note that Groundspeak will be shutting down for maintenance starting at 11PM EST for about 6 hours, so you might have to wait until tomorrow to post your “attended” log, especially if you head out caching after the pub. Groundspeak is describing this as the biggest update they’ve undertaken in 5 years. Wonder if there will be any interesting new goodness come out of this update.

Canada Day is upon us, and it’s going to be a beautiful day in the Toronto Area! Make sure you get out and find a geocache – perhaps you are planning to visit the challenge

GC24RB8 – Ontario’s Public Holidays Challenge Cache at some point. Well, you’ll need a cache on July 1 to qualify for that challenge!

On Canada Day, there are events and fireworks at Toronto’s Canadian National Exhibition grounds. Go out and find a geocache, perhaps a Canada Day themed one, like this this one in Brampton. Get out and have some fun, party like it’s Canada’s 143rd birthday, “eh”.

If you really want to make a day out of it – there’s that Webcam cache in Ottawa that would be a great field trip. Remember to bring your great big Canadian Flag for the occasion!
