The 4th Annual Eastman GPS Challenge, which takes place from July 16 to August 9, 2010, is the perfect summer adventure for anyone! Discover some of the exciting and beautiful sites that Manitoba has to offer and take part in activities that you may have never tried. This exciting treasure hunt will bring families and friends together as they search for hidden caches with their hand-held GPS.

The Challenge is to visit each of the 12 locations between July 16 and August 9 to find the hidden caches and answer the fun trivia questions. The Challenge Guide is set up as a Bingo card with the coordinates and trivia in each square. The question can be answered when you find the cache. Don't forget to put the stickers on your bingo card once you find the caches in order to complete a Bingo line! Try out the fun activities or services each place has to offer! Find your cache by horseback or walk on old trails that were once used by traders long ago. Try mazes, zip lines, and much more! (Note: some locations may charge a small fee to take part in certain activities offered. Finding caches by foot in this Challenge, however, is always free!) Keep an eye out for hidden Geocoins in some caches. Two new coins will be placed in caches for each of the three weeks the Challenge runs for.

Get a chance to win a book of savings when you visit the participating locations.
