This is a quote taken from the groundspeak blog Latitude 47.
'In the 11 years and 9 months since the first geocache was placed, there is single date on which only a small fraction of geocachers have ever logged a cache. We suspect that’s because this particular date has only happened twice in geocaching history; it’s February 29, also known as leap day.'
We had been planning an event for this day for quite some time but we couldn't decide on a venue. Our daughter's band regularly plays at a small pub not far from where we live called 'The Frog' and we've often thought what a great location it would be for an event so decided to hold the 'Leap Day' event there.
Everyone who logs a cache or attends an event on February 29th will receive a Leap Day souvenir on their profile and premium members who like to fill in the 'finds by date' grid will find that this is the perfect opportunity to fill in the square - the 366th day of geocaching!
