=Ako- and myself, slowly wandered around, watching everyone searching and attempting to capture the Munzee and subtly pointing people in the right direction. It was such a relief, after many weeks of organisation, to just watch everyone enjoy capturing.
From outside to inside, everyone then met at the Royal Oak, Rowley Regis, after to participate in more fun and games.
My thanks go to -Ako- and Northking for their very hard work and help in getting this event off the ground, and thank you to all those who attended, it was fantastic to meet new and old friends.
After many weeks of preparation of the First UK Munzee Meet, the day started, in the car park to Warrens Hall Nature Reserve, with a race at 10:30hrs. There were approximately 18 pumpkins, left from the Halloween event, for players to try and grab as many as possible, as they were each worth 50 points!
Off out tonight to finish off deploying for the First UK Munzee Meet 2011, which is tomorrow. Walked up to the top of Turners Hill then down to Warrens Hall Nature Reserve, finally got home to sleep around 03:30hrs!
Met up with -Ako- after work and walked around another section of the Nature Reserve to deploy more Munzee for the First UK Meet next weekend. Have found a couple of nice little hides, some difficult ones mixed in with some easy captures.
Both of us will be out again tomorrow to find some more great places to hide the Munzee.
Spent a couple of hours with Dave (-Ako-) on Sunday morning walking around Warrens Hall Nature Reserve, finding places to deploy. The sun was shining and the views around the valley were stunning, hopefully the weather will be good on the day of the meet. We still have a few areas to cover and place the Munzee, and hope to get this done next weekend.
Earlier this week we received confirmation from Munzee HQ that they are supporting us and will be sending some goodies for the meet.
Hope to see you there!

After the Halloween event last weekend, where quite a few players went mad for the pumpkin points, the majority of them were gone within a day, giving a big boost to the score of those who were quick to start early.
On Friday 4 November, I had a trip down to Swansea for the weekend to the christening of my Niece. The route I decided to take was to lead me to two pumpkin Munzee that had not been captured, and were also FTC.
The first was on the A465 from Hereford, 'Welcome To Wales' which was a nice easy capture, the second, in Cwmbran, was not so easy, in fact, I was unable to find, even with the help of my daughter. To top it off, I was stopped by the local constabulary asking what I was doing! Why do people make these hard to find in built-up areas?!
