MBGA 2016 AGM and Disastrous Dessert Failure

Please join us for the MBGA Annual General Meeting.

This is a great opportunity to find out what the Manitoba Geocaching Association has been up to for the past year and to find out what we are planning for the year ahead.

GeoVenture 2016 announcement!

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.

Where?
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'.

Note:
This is now confirmed.

We are quite excited about this change as it allows us some new opportunities.

THANK YOU!

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.
