Not sure what to say about this as I made an event
cache of my bday party. I did place a cache or two for
the event and we did do a group cache that afternoon.
I can see where this could get out of hand....say a
weekly breakfast club meeting of geocachers...man you
could build up those cache numbers that way. I don't
know maybe Jen has the right idea ...set out a cache
to find for the event and maybe leave it in place for
a while so others can log it. 
But I really have no objection to logging the meeting
as an event cache as long as it is not taken advantage
of..Could there be a low end limit to the number of
cachers present. Say you have to have X number of
cachers present in order for it to qualify as an
event?
Other wise everytime a couple of cachers get together
for coffee or whatever and talk about caching it oculd
be considered an event cache.
