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?

Cacher of the Month - February 2013

Bike_4_Me

Bike_4_me was introduced to geocaching by junglehair when he accompanied her to find a geocache while on a business trip in Brandon in 2007. He was hooked, but as the father of three teen-aged children, he didn't have much time for geocaching. He managed to find 23 caches in his first year. As the kids got old enough to drive themselves to all their activities, he had a bit more time for his favourite activities: cycling and geocaching. Almost 6 years later, Manny has over 2500 finds and is working on an impressive geocaching streak which began on August 1, 2011. He is well past the 500 consective days of geocaching mark and is closing in on 600. Congratulations Bike_4_me for being named the MBGA's Cacher of the Month for February!

Many of you will have started to notice logs on caches from our Cacher of the Month started appearing just over a year ago. At first, I thought it was a new cacher who had joined us. When I met her at an event, I was surprised at the number of finds she had (being a newbie and all). I was quite astonished to find out that she had been caching for over 7 years, and until that time we had never met. I think the reason her name seemed unfamiliar would be because in the not too distant past, she had changed from a previous name: rbt_trio. Now *that* name was familiar to me! I had been tracking it for some time for Cacher of the Month, then it fell into the black hole that all inactive cachers find themselves in when they hadn't cached in a while. It was nice to see the name rising through the ranks of my magic COTM spreadsheet to the point where she has achieved "cacher of the month". Welcome back into the fold, and congratulations on become the MBGA Cacher of the Month for January!
