I'm working on a cache that involves certain info on the annual campouts & picnics. Twisted Evil

I've noticed that the numbering of the events are out of synch. What happened in 2010 & 2011?

Here's the issue: the 2010 picnic appears to be the 10th annual, and the 2011 picnic appears to be the 11th annual picnic, but the 2012 picnic states that it is the 10th annual.

Similarly, the 2010 campout is listed as the 9th annual campout, the 2011 campout is simply listed as the "2011 WGA Campout," and then the 2012 campout mentions it is the 10th annual. The 2013 & 2014 don't even mention where they fit in in the sequence, only listing 2013 & 2014, respectively.

Can anyone clear this up for me? Huh?

Here's the data

CAMPOUT
2002 Governor Dodge SP
2003 High Cliff SP
2004 Hartman Creek SP "3rd annual"
2005 Lake Wissota SP 4th annual
2006 Peninsula SP 5th annual
2007 Hartman Creek SP 6th annual
2008 Governor Dodge SP 7th annual
2009 High Cliff SP 8th annual
2010 Richard Bong State Rec Area 9th annual
2011 Hartman Creek SP
2012 Governor Dodge SP 10th annual should be 11th?
2013 Interstate SP (sequence not mentioned but would be the 12th?)
2014 Mirror Lake SP (sequence not mentioned but should be the 13th?)

PICNIC
2001 Pike Lake
2002 Lapham Peak
2003 Devil's Lake SP 3rd annual
2004 Makenzie Environmental Education Center, Poynette WI 4th annual
2005 Kettle Moraine Southern Unit 5th annual
2006 Kettle Moraine Northern Unit 6th annual
2007 Wildcat Mountain SP 7th annual
2008 Lapham Peak 8th annual
2009 Lake Wissota SP 9th annual
2010 Roche-a-Cri SP
2011 Brunet Island SP
2012 Pike Lake 10th annual? should be 12th?
2013 Gov. Thompson SP 11th annual (should be 13th?)
2014 Harrington Beach or Kohler-Andrae (14th annual?)

Could be a bad case of copy and past, not that anything like that could happen.

I think that the campout in 2012 was the 10th anniversary of the WGA, not the 10th campout.

Yep that was it the 10th anniversary. I took pictures of all of the cakes at Pike Lake.


EDITED: urghh.. phone autocorrect.

I believe that the 2002 campout was actually pre-WGA. 2012 was the "return to where it started" campout.

The 2002 Campout was the first WGA event, followed by the 2002 Picnic event.

Second Annual would be First Anniversary.
So 2012 would be 10th anniversary. (11th Annual)

Update to John's list:
2014 Lapham Peak is the WGA Geo Picninc.
