Halloween Hides and Creepy Caches Event

After a note was posted on the West Midlands Caching group on Facebook we decided to meet up with friends for a spot of caching in Nether Heyford before heading off to the Halloween Hides and Creepy Caches Event in Bugbrooke.  We named our group Team Spooks to save on log book space.

The afternoon caches were released just before 3pm and we headed off with Team Spooks.  On the spur of the moment we decided to go anti-clockwise and managed 9 FTFs before meeting other caching teams coming the other way.  All caches were fairly easy finds and on a spooky theme.  Once back at the pub we brewed up a cuppa out the back of the car and had a bite to eat before donning our Halloween costumes and regrouping for the evening night caches which were released just before 7.30pm - (NOTE TO SELF: Never put fancy dress make up on in the dark!).  Caching in a group once again although the caching teams had changed and this time we signed the log books as Team Death.  Once again the caches were of a spooky theme although some were far more gory this time.


A fantastic event, we thoroughly enjoyed meeting up with friends old and new and we really appreciate all the hard work that must have gone into setting it all up.  Also it was great to see so many people getting into the 'spirit' of the occasion with some fabulous outfits.  We are really looking forward to next year - HH & CC Mega perhaps
