Cacher of the Month - October 2012

I know that I have met G and J on more than one occasion. Or, it could be old age creeping up on me. Snooping around their profile I see that they have one event claimed, so I must be hallucinating. I know for sure that I did see them there and had a quick chat with them. Very lovely people. OK, back to snooping around their profile. (BTW, one of the perks of doing these right ups is that I get to check out everyone's profiles). Here's an interesting stat: Over 99% of their finds are traditional caches. I know you might not think it's interesting, but I would find it hard to hit a 99% milestone in anything! Read on to learn more about October's Cacher of the Month.

Sunny Owl and Hubby


When I was 8 years old, I became a Brownie as part of the Girl Guides of Canada. More specifically, I was a "Sprite". I had only spent one year with this group, but I remember our two leaders: Brown Owl and Tawny Owl. When I saw the name of this caching team, I thought "Sunny 'Owl'"... I wonder if she is any relation to those two ladies long ago. And sure enough, she was! Both the Girl Guides of Canada and Scouts Canada have embraced geocaching. Several units around the country have placed caches so they learn more about exploring, nature and conservation, and let other cachers learn about their groups. I love it when leaders and coaches also fully embrace geocaching and spread the word. Read on to learn more about September's Cachers of the Month: Sunny Owl and Hubby

Hello Manitoba!

This is a quick announcement to inform you that October (and November) will be the Month of Ammo Can Hides! Otherwise known as M.A.C.H. 1


Rule #1: The hide must be an Ammo Can. Rule #2: If the cache container is bigger than an Ammo Can, we may be awarding extra points. (Just put the ammo can on the inside!) Rule #3: The hide may NOT be a micro Ammo Can.

Cacher of the Month - July 2012

Team Torossi has been on my Cacher of the Month radar for some time now, slowly climbing up to the top of my spreadsheet. I was pleased as punch to see the article "The Fastest Growing Outdoor Sport in the World" that featured them in the "Jewish Post and News" this year. It is well written, fun and very informative. It's fitting that Torossi found out about geocaching via the media and was then featured in an article. Perhaps, a few years from now the Cacher of the Month will have started caching because they read this article. Read on to meet July's Cacher of the Month ...

Cacher of the Month - June 2012

Muz and girlie


I think the first time that I had met Muz and Girlie was at one of the MBGA's potluck dinners. It may have even been one of our annual holiday parties. They have been to many events, and I remember each time they both had big smiles on their faces. My biggest memory is more recent, and only really involves Girlie. I was leaving Geoventure 2011 at one point during the weekend, and as my car steered it's way onto highway 59 from Birds Hill Park, I saw a PT Cruiser zoom by with a telltale travel bug decal in its window. I decided I needed to "discover" this TB. So for several kilometres, I tried to catch up to the car, but the driver seemed to have a bit of a lead foot (which to me is surprising since I, myself, am a speed demon). Sometimes I would get close, but not close enough to read the TB number. Finally, after weaving in and out of traffic and trying to keep up with the car, we were getting close to Oak Point Hwy on the Perimeter and I was finally able to read it. I got home and logged the discovery right away. To my surprise, Girlie didn't even know that she was being tracked for over 10 kilometers.
