Mark your calendars! As Groundspeak celebrates International Geocaching Day on August 20, 2016, we will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of GeoVenture! GeoVenture will be held on August 19, 20 and 21.
For the first 9 GeoVentures, this weekend camping party has been held at Birds Hill Park. This year, we are making a change. (drumroll please) This year, we will be celebrating GeoVenture at Camp Morton Provincial Park! Group Use Area 'C'.
This is now confirmed.
We are quite excited about this change as it allows us some new opportunities.
A big thank you goes out to the following Geocachers who helped out at our 'camping' spot at the RV Show this weekend. (Sorted in chronological order of arrival from Thursday through Sunday.)
We estimate that there was at least 150 'Treasure' hunts that happened with about 200 kids. It was a fantastic weekend to introduce Geocaching to so many families. Thanks to everyone who helped, we definitely couldn't have done it without you.
What: The Manitoba RV Show
When: Saturday, March 12
Time: 10AM - 7PM
Where: RBC Convention Centre (filling the entire, newly expanded third floor.)

Come visit our trade show booth and say hello!
The 2016 Manitoba RV Show has kindly invited the MBGA to host a booth along with other exhibitors. This year, they are creating a 5,000 square foot campground complete with real trees to show what camping life is like.
Effective January 21, 2016, Yogi® has stepped down from the MBGA Board of directors. He relinquishes his duties as Treasurer. In his place, we welcome VA as the acting Treasurer.
Also effective January 21, 2016 the board of directors also welcomes epatzee as an interim Member at Large.
A huge thank you to Yogi® for several years of dedication to the MBGA.
Below is a quick list of events or dates we will be holding events in the next several months. We are planning a fund raising campaign to raise funds for 24 new GPS units that will be used in training sessions with groups. We have seen an increase, year over year, of requests for group training programs and our aged stack of GPS units just don't cut it anymore. We will be offering Cache (Cash) Calendars for sale at all of these events we are planning.
