On 24th May 2008, the first Saturday meeting since the algorithm was published, the geohash for Carlisle was a field of cows near Low Bentham, North Yorkshire at 54.126648°, -2.547534°.

Two separate groups from Lancaster met on the path to the field and got as close as possible without wanting to disturb the cows. A family from Kendal reached the actual co-ordinates with a compass and no GPS. All three groups enjoyed a round of drinks afterwards at a local pub - mission successful!
