BREAKFAST EVENT DETAILS

Why Post a Will Attend?

One of the least used logs types for GeoCaching events is the Will Attend log.

What is it? Essentially, the 'Will Attend' is your RSVP to say that you are coming to the event. It is a courtesy and is no different than RSVPing to a wedding or other event. It helps event organisers plan their event by having enough seats/food/etc. It would be frowned upon to attend a wedding without sending in your RSVP as there would be no seat for you at the dinner table.

When viewing an event page, you can click on the button that says 'log your visit' at the top right corner.

GeoVenture 2015 : What is it?

What is GeoVenture and why should you attend?

It is an annual Geocaching event held at Birds Hill Park. This year we have 6 events published, a pub night, a bonfire, a breakfast, a challenge, a potluck BBQ and games evening, a Sunday CITO.

The first several GeoVentures, the real reason for the event was the challenge itself. A number of (to be published later) Geocaches are to be released and groups of Geocachers run/race/drive etc around to go be amongst the first to find them. That's the 'adventure' in GeoVenture.

The rest of the events are all about the socializing.

Off to Dauphin

The Dauphin Mega event is in three days! We couldn't be more excited. This is the first ever Mega event in Manitoba 15 years after the activity of Geocaching began. We thank tourismdauphin, jabbywockyz and their team of Geocachers in Dauphin for putting in a TON of hard work to put this event together.

If you haven't been to a Geocaching event, you're missing out on one of the most fun part of Geocaching, the social aspect. When I first got started back in 2007, I wasn't to sure about events myself, but after attending my first event (a pub night) I was hooked.
