It was only a matter of time until people incorporated global-positioning-system technology in an organized sport. Drivers equipped with the satellite mapping devices can now go geocaching. The geo is for geography, and caching is a hiking term for hiding and preserving provisions. Here's the basic idea: Any old fool can set up a cache, placing whatever he pleases wherever he pleases -- say, a case of bottled water next to a tree in Swope Park or a mix CD behind the bar at Jilly's. GPS users seek out the location coordinates on the Internet in what's essentially a worldwide, high-tech scavenger hunt. Anybody can try it out at the Kansas City Outdoor Club's 35th anniversary celebration, from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at Loose Park (51st Street and Wornall Road). The event also includes hiking, three-legged races and bocce. Write to KCOCemails@aol.com. --Sarah Smarsh
Big bad wrestlers bring it to Lawrence.
Saturday's National Wrestling Alliance Central States wrestling tournament introduces the Sunflower State to Sabu -- né Terry Brunk -- who has also been, in past wrestling lives, Cocoa Samoa and Black Ninja. Sabu is known for his head scarves as well as for his signature finishing move, the Flying Arabian Facebuster. His catchphrase? "Homicidal! Genocidal! Suicidal!" That's slightly scary -- even for wrestling -- but Sabu's going up against Michael Strider, whose awesome motto is "Serving your ass-kickin' needs since '97." There'll be no end to understatement when doors open at 6:30 p.m. at the Lawrence Community Building (115 West 11th Street) and matches start at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15 at the door.

You Should Be Dancing
Do ya do ya do ya do ya wanna dance?
If Dancing With the Stars inspired you, head to Friday night ballroom dance lessons at the Heart of America Dance Center (220 Southeast Douglas in Lee's Summit, 816-554-3033). Instructor Gary Cox teaches the merengue and more, but without B-list stars to offer as partners. Lessons start at 7:30, and there's a dance afterward from 8:30 to 10:30; $10 buys you admission to both. -- Rebecca Braverman
