No Cachercon 2011

We've been getting a few questions over the last several months as to whether we'll host another Cachercon this year. The answer is simply no, but more accurately, not this year, but next year. Due to the level of planning, funding, and just plain effort it takes to pull it off we've decided to make Cachercon Metro Detroit biannual, running on only the even years. We will be looking to build a panel shortly to plan Cachercon Metro Detroit 2012, but aren't ready to make any announcements or commitments yet. I will mention that the mission of Cachercon has been to provide a forum for Geocacher education, entertainment, and socialization during the winter months as we're all itching to get out caching again but don't want to due to the snow and cold. We will be looking to expand the portfolio this year with things like workshops in addition to the presentations. We hope to be able to offer a space for vendors as well, possibly even have sponsors to help fund the event. Those who completed the survey and said they would like to help with the next Cachercon will be contacted within the next couple of months, but if you would like to be part of the planning e-mail me. We'd also love to hear from people who would be interested in hosting sessions (presentations, workshops, or entertainment) for Cachercon Metro Detroit 2012. I'll post information to this blog as we start nailing down details.
