Happy New Year everyone!

The Dauphin Geocaching Committee met this week and has set some tentative dates for our 2013 events. If you're looking to make a trip up to our area to do some caching this year, you might want to check out one of our events. We'll post GC codes as we get them put up online.

Save the date!
Saturday, March 2 – Dauphin Winter Spirit Festival (will have a geocaching component to this outdoor festival)
Saturday, April 20 – Kick off to our 2013 Quest for the Coin challenge at the Kinsmen Business Expo (25 new caches to find in order to receive a free 1st edition geocoin)
Saturday, September 7 - Cachefest (our 2nd annual event with even more new caches to be released)

Keep in mind that April 20 and 21 is the 11th Annual CITO weekend. You may want to consider also creating a CITO event to coincide with the Quest for the Coin challenge. (Or hold an event on the 21st.)

I was in the midst of planning a cito event for the mbga tat weekend and do not want to interfere with the event on the 20 so i guess i will plan ours for the 21.

Hi everyone.

We'll have details posted in the next week along with the GC codes for at least the 2 upcoming events. Our committee is working on final pieces and excited to get rolling. We did see that Quest for the Coin is the same weekend as CITO so we're looking at incorporating that in to the event as well so not finalized for that component yet.

AngelFreak - plan what day works best for your crew in Wpg for CITO as ours will probably be a two day (come and go type) event and i don't think it will interfere with your piece. We'll watch for details on your CITO event and will try to coordinate our events to make it easy for all MB cachers.

Hoping for some warmer weather one of these days! Very Happy

P.S. here's a sneak peek of our new geocoins that are part of the 'Quest for the Coin'

Our event in April has been changed somewhat due to the slow arrival of spring. We are now calling it Dauphin Geo-Trade (GC45RHC) We will be pushing back the Quest for the Coin challenge until sometime in May when we are able to put out all the caches.
