Ave, dear Event Participants!
We’ve finally got round to thanking you for your participation and your messages in the logs – we actually read all of them and are overwhelmed by your feedback. Thank you so much for that!
The Roman gods were very fond of us and you this past weekend:
- “Fortuna”, the goddess of fortune and fate was loyal to all coin-, trackable- and cache-hunters, and of course, to those who took part in the numerous games and raffles,
- the sun god “Sol” smiled significantly,
- even the storm on Friday evening was a sign, after all, the Roman god “Jupiter” is a god of thunder! 😉
We would like to thank our wonderful volunteers, the tutors at the workshops and presentations, as well as the guys from Live Podcast – the implementation of such an event would have been impossible without you all. A big thank you to the LVR-Archaeological Park Xanten for welcoming us with its hospitality, and to the Tourist Information Xanten (TIX) which enabled us to host the event in the first place. We are, of course, also grateful to all the sponsors and the many traders who found their way to Xanten, and to the gladiators of Amor Mortis and the Roman camp, Classis Augusta Germanica.
Last, but not least, our thanks to you – what would a Giga event be without its participants – thank you for helping enable our event reach its status!
Our Roman Statisticians are pleased to announce the following data:
overall, we have 11,946 people on Saturday so far, of which 7,606 have already logged on Geocaching.com. On Friday we had 2,719 participants in the arena.
We were so pleased to be able to present the Lower Rhine to you all with this year’s Project and hope to see you all again at “Project Glück Auf 2016” GC55555 in Essen.
For those of you who would like to relive some Project GeoXantike 2015 memories: one of our party has sent us the following YouTube links with a summary of both days, for which we are extremely grateful.

Unfortunately, one of the participants is still missing her Garmin. If you have found it, please get in touch with us via firstname.lastname@example.org. The owner of the lost movie camera which was kindly handed in to us would like to thank the honest finder very much. If you lost something at the event, please do get in touch with us as we still have some lost property.
One final request: Please remember to log your TB’s and Coins out of the event.
Farewell until TipiTipiTap II on 20th May 2017. Thank you all for an unforgettable event and we hope that you’ll remember us for a long time.
Your organizing team from CacherTeamGeldern
