Host Resources

If you are interested in hosting a WWFM event in your area, check out these resources, tips and tools!

Basic Requirements:

  • Hold your event on the official, announced day, at the official time (for an exception, please contact Sonny and Sandy at podcacher [at] gmail [dot] com)
  • The event should last only 15 minutes (but you can always gather informally afterwards for geocaching!)
  • UPDATE: Due to changes in event guidelines (Feb 2015), all events must last a minimum of 30 minutes. You have several options. You can meet early at a certain location, and make plans together for the "Flash Mob" portion of the event at a nearby location, and then meet again at the first location after the flash mob is over. Another idea is to start the event with the "Flash Mob", and then have everyone meet at a second location to continue socializing. The event host must be present for 30 minutes, but you can also have a longer event. The fun of the "Flash Mob" part is to do something unique, different, entertaining, unusual, etc. so that people (muggles) around are surprised or amused! It works best to keep this portion short.
  • Take a group picture
  • Collect the number of people attended for statistical purposes
  • Be creative and Have fun!
