12-12-12 Event in Ottawa?
« on: November 15, 2012, 09:39:34 »
You may have heard that there is a special 'souvenir' available should you find or attend a geocache on Wednesday December 12th.

There are a number of events published to make this easy for people who are usually busy on a weekday, but none in the Ottawa area.

Should we publish a 12-12-12 Event in Ottawa?

It's too bad that 12-12-12 didn't fall on Thursday, then the monthly workshop could have acted as it's normal event and a 12-12-12 event.

Why not! Even just a quick flash mob would do the trick, similar to leap day.

Meh, considering the size of this town, a flashmob at lunch on a work day is not all that easy to attend unless you're lucky and it's near where you work.  The only reason I managed to attend the leap day one is that I took the day off for caching.

If you guys organize a lunch event, I might have to organize something in the evening.

Hey, if I organize an event at 12:12 AM at Union 613, would anyone come?  They're open until 2:00 AM for late night food, which includes eggs and beers, both excellent to keep with the "12" theme I think  ;D

What if the workshop was exceptionally moved to Wednesday, just for that month?

... unless you happen to have an odd timetable, as I do. I can't attend evening events, so a lunchtime event would be very appreciated.

I am going to host something in Orleans, the cache which will be called "insert commical name here" will be a tribute to both looking at the cold months ahead of us, the warmer months behind us, and a chance to grab shawarma before other plans take over the evening.  If you're in Orleans and want a little more than a flash mob, watch for it... coming soon!

A lunch time flash mob would be nice too I just can't participate.

Well, sounds like there will be multiple 12-12-12 events going on. I will try to attend as many as I can :)

I like the idea of Union 613 (so good!) but not sure if I could be there for 12:12am! Some of us have to work the next day :P

Wouldn't that be 'work later on the same day...?'

12:12 am on 12.12.12 would be 12 minutes after midnight of TUESDAY the 11th.

12:12 pm would be at lunchtime on 12.12.12.

I'm liking the 12:12 PM lunchtime flash mob idea.  That's the only REAL 12-12-12 12:12 that day.  But, I could likely be convinced to attend the 00:12 version as well.  ;D

I see this as the typical 'how many angels can dance on the head of a pin' debate. If there's an event at 12:12 AM Wednesday morning and then 12:12 PM Wednesday afternoon too I'll happily attend both and let the devil debate the details...

Yes, most of us (including myself) have to work the next day.  But we don't have to sleep at least 6 hours every night.  We prefer to, but we don't have to  ;)
