Caches No’s 5155 to 5166 – Lincoln Mega Location Revealed

I’m sure I have said before that following this years UKMega in Sussex the 2021 event will be in Lincolnshire, and following the many years old tradition the Lincoln Mega Committee held an event to reveal the location chosen for it.There were a new set of Lab caches put out for the event, and another set already there fortunately they did not really clash with each other, so it was one trip round the city centre, not a double loop

16th February 2020 – The Grassy Field…Revealed! GC8J5056 – cache #5155
I have only ever been to one of these reveal events before – which was ours and involved a treasure hunt and picnic on a lovely sunny day in September (cache #4155), A Student Union bar on a rainy February day was going to be a different type of event to that.

All the usual faces were there, and we found out that the 2021 Mega will be in a field at Revesby, in the middle of nowhere, Lincolnshire

After the event it was on to the Lab Caches…

There was a bonus cache for the series but it was back where the event had been held and my car was nowhere near there, so I didn’t bother with it
