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.
We have a request from an after-school recreational program called Who Let The Kids Out at Starbuck School in Starbuck Manitoba. They are looking to have someone run a short Geocaching session for this group on the following dates and times.
Tuesday February 24th
Wednesday March 10th
4:00PM to 5:30PM
