The following invitation was translated using artificial intelligence, for which we might have to apologize:
Opencaching goes international! So this event is listed too on our OC-comrade nodes of
Czech Republic, Germany, BeNeLux, Poland, Romania, Great Britain, USA ...
Have you already booked your summer vacation? Why not travel to Cologne, Germany, into the beautiful area "Land of the count of Berg" nearby? It will be a big three-days-opencaching-meeting there. For that, we have booked a hostel with 44 beds and cooks for your breakfast, dinner and BBQ for three days!
The official meeting of the OC team will also take place in the year 2023
, on the last weekend in August. The 10th Opencaching.de Headquarter Event #OCHQ10
- a meeting of the german OC-team, club members, donors and supporters - is not an internal meeting only, but every interested user of the platform is cordially invited to be there and with the guys that runs everything behind the scenes. There is also the chance to meet familiar faces again or to get to know new opencachers, to gossip and discuss.The focus is on being together and exchanging experiences.
In 2023 we will go to land of the count of Berg
in the county North-Rhine-Westphalia.
There is, if you follow the highway A1, between Cologne and Wuppertal at exit no. 96
the "Castle upon the river Wupper", a district of Solingen on the border to Wermelskirchen.
Because we received the following announcement:
The knight Kuniberg
his faithful comrade Edwin von Caphorn
cordially invite you to participate in the
Anno Domini 2023, from the 25th to the 27th of August
on his castle in the "Bergisches Land".
Be it from the blood of the executive, whether a good nobleman or noble lady with OC-club-membership, brave or courageous opencacher, open in spirit or do he and she belong to the interested people -
everyone is called to follow the invitation!
At the twelfth hour of the tower clock, the master of ceremonies will officially open the festivities.
For this purpose, the entourage has to meet in
Waffle House at Castle Burg
Steinweg 12, D-42659 Solingen/Burg
