One of the rewarding things about looking after the Cacher of the Month page is the ability to learn new things about cachers that you think you know. This month we go to the NorMan area of the province to find our Cachers of the Month, RW/RW. I was surprised to read that they do not live in the province full time, spending their winters on Vancouver Island. I have it from a reputable source (me), that the best kind of people are from Vancouver Island. Having recently found their 3,000th geocache, it appropriate that they are recognized this month for their efforts. If you get an opportunity, visit their profile page to see a beautiful oil painting by RW(he).
Participate in the Great MBGA Stampede
Buy one of the beautiful MBGA 5 Year Anniversary Geocoin for $15 ($10 for the coin and $5 for entry to cover prizes) and enter your coin in a race starting the day of the Cache the Marsh Event and ending at the MBGA AGM next year.
Every coin will be deposited in a cache called "Bison" the day of the Cache the Marsh event and will stampede across the world in the hope of raking up the most mileage until closing day next year. Continue reading for the rules...
More than 5 years in the planning, "April Foolish" is one of the premier caches in Canada, and is featured both in Groundspeak's "10 Best Caches in the world" and ranked #17 in the "20 Most Difficult Hides". Seekers of this cache are cautioned to plan carefully, and consider allowing 3 to 5 days to complete the initial stages, and another 2 days at minimum for the final. Due to a few modifications to the initial hides, there have been no serious injuries in the last six months. Good luck!
We have a few of the limited edition 10 Years of Geocaching Geocoins made specially for Manitoba with MBGA colours left over from the event, come and get them. We also have the ultra nifty Bison Geocoins and the superhero grade MBGA crests available from our online store. Update: 10 Years Geocoin Sold Out
Here is your opportunity to use your GPS to find the Spirit Way Wolves which are located across our beautiful province. What better opportunity to see Manitoba and have some fun with your GPS while you’re at it. Each wolf’s title is a secret! Your mission, if you accept it, is to track them down and find the title on all the 49 steel plaques. Then you will be recognized as a GPS Wolf Master Tracker! To participate you will need a GPS Wolf Passport, which is available from the MBGA for $5. Contact Us to obtain a passport. They will be available at most MBGA events this summer.
For more information and rules visit the GPS Wolf Hunt at Thompson SpiritWay.
