Description   EN   

As I start to get into Munzee a little, I think I'm going to throw out a BIT cache or two when I deploy Munzees. So here's a magnetic BIT on the opposite side of the footbridge from a Munzee in Ellicott Creek County Park in Tonawanda, N.Y.

I grew up in the City of Tonawanda, and this was on the way to Grandmother's house, which was at the corner of Sweet Home Road and North French in Amherst (now a First Niagara Bank). I seem to remember this bridge being built in the early 1970's, although I could be wrong.

I think you'll find the logging code funny, if you're from the area. Have fun. The hint should be a dead give-away, should you need it. And cap those Munzees!

Note: On June 11th, 2015, Avery Gardner, aged 16, of Lockport, N.Y., struck her head on this bridge in a freak boating accident, and later died of her injuries. This cache has been renamed in her honor.

Stopped for lunch / pinic while on our way to Allegany. Had to stop by "OCNA HQ", nice to see you again My.Yuck. we parked on Thistle Ave and used the bridge to access the park. Clearly Avery is still remembered and missed. Crossing the bridge with my three daughters, it's hard not to be a little moved. Thanks for the BIT cache, it's been a while since I found one of those.

1st log in a LONG time.  Very nice tribute to a beautiful young girl.

Wasn't really sure what a BIT cache was, but got a kick out of it.

Thanks for bringing me here Mr. Yuck.

I knew nothing beforehand about the boating accident. I can't imagine any boat going under this bridge at all. Anyway, found the BIT. Thanks!

At approximately 6:45 AM on Thursday, June 11th, 2015, Avery Gardner, aged 16 of Lockport, N.Y., struck her head on this bridge while passing under it in a freak boating accident, and later died of her injuries. I am renaming this cache in her honor. I personally happened upon the scene about 20 minutes after the incident, and saw her boyfriend talking to the TTPD. I had no idea what had happened until later in the day, when the news reports came out. I don't know how long this will last on the internet, but here's the Buffalo News Article. RIP Avery.
