Why was 2015 the last Block Party? Edit
The Geocaching Block party was originally intended to be a one-time event here in Seattle to mark the 10th anniversary of Geocaching. We had so much fun at the first event, we keep doing it for 5 years. As Geocaching keeps growing around the world, it is important that we focus our priorities on projects that can bring enjoyment to the entire community. As much as we have enjoyed hosting the HQ Block Party in Seattle, it is now time to sunset this event.
