Check this out -
Yuma Event #9 in 2012 - 460 attended
Yuma Mega Event #10 in 2012 - over 900 to date.
How is this happening? I wonder. I would be willing to bet that there will be Geocaching event organizers from all over the United States, calling S*W*A*G* / Robert McNeese for tips on how to have a really successful event.
Here's my question - really - how did this happen?
How many newbies ( as in never attended the Yuma events ) are coming to the event because it became a Mega Event?
Answer/comment if you like. I am totally serious when I say that I would like to know.
A little bit of info here -
This is the first ever Mega Geocaching event in Arizona. Nevada has never had a Mega event, but does have one planned later this year. And, as large as California is, it has only had two Mega events.
