July 2013 Summer Hiding Contest


Welcome to the July (and now August and September) hiding challenge! July of 2013 is dedicated to the kids. Yes, Geocaching as a whole is all about the kid inside of us all, this challenge is all about the little ones. As Geocaching has grown, the number of families with kids have discovered how much fun it is has grown. This year's Geoventure theme is 'The Games People Play.' The theme of this year's hiding challenge is an extension of that. Hide and Seek, hide/find the thimble/treasure, geocaching... games that kids play.

Okay, I think you have the point.

Video: on the hunt for fun with geocaching in Manitoba

Global TV Winnipeg's Dan Grummett recently filmed a Focus Manitoba segment on Geocaching. Have a look!

It’s a worldwide treasure hunt that’s becoming more popular in Manitoba.

Geocaching is the endless search for hidden objects, guided by clues and Global Positioning Systems. There are thousands of hidden geocaches in Manitoba alone; millions around the world. And for some Manitobans, finding them is a full time obsession and popular family activity that can lead almost anywhere.

Operation Battlecache IV is over!

Another great year! Entries will now no longer be accepted. Did you sink the sea monsters? The random placements have been drawn and the monsters are now visible.

Check your grid against what is posted below to see what sea monsters you took out.


Cabelas Volunteers Needed!

Cabelas has asked us to set up an information booth/table at their annual Spring Sale. The sale is March 16-17 and 23-24th.

We need volunteers to represent Geocaching and the MBGA to work a 3 hour shift at the booth.

What day? Currently, we have March 16th filled up. We are looking to fill up Saturday, March 23rd. We will not maintain a booth on the two Sundays.

Duties? Talk to new people about Geocaching. It is your chance to share why you love to Geocache. There may be a Geocache or two pre-hidden for people to try and find.

Will there be a Geo-event published?
