- MBGA's The Quick Brown Fox Leaped over the HoundMon Feb 29 7:29pm (15 days)
Hi everyone! We are discussing our Birthday Cake situation for the AGM on May 3rd. Currently, we only have a handful of 'Will Attends' which means we can only order a small cake. If you are planning to attend, it is VERY IMPORTANT that you log your 'Will Attend'. Otherwise, we will only have enough cake for the number of people who have RSVP'd.
Think of 'Will Attend' as something that is just as important to event planners as if you were RSVPing to a wedding. You wouldn't RSVP to the wedding couple the morning they are to be wed.
HAVE RSVP? You'll have cake!

It's that time of year again!
Geocachers are a helpful bunch. We regularly give back to the community by helping clean up public spaces. Every year, Groundspeak designates one weekend in the spring as "CITO Weekend", when geocachers can receive a special digital souvenir for taking part in a CITO event. This year, CITO weekend takes place April 25-26. Manitoba cachers will be out in Winnipeg, Dauphin, and Brandon on Saturday, April 25 to clean up local public spaces. The party continues in Winnipeg on Sunday, April 26.
Consider coming out to a CITO event this April.

The mathematical constant pi is numerically rendered 3.141592653... Every year, March 14 (3/14) is celebrated as "Pi Day". This year, 2015, allows nerds to go one step further and smile as they render the date 3/14/15. This Pi Day is the most "complete" one of the century, and to celebrate, Groundspeak has created a special souvenir to be awarded to cachers who attend events on March 14, 2015. Manitoba cachers have stepped up for the occasion, hosting three such events.
