Hello Geocachers of Manitoba!

August is here and that means GeoVenture is just around the corner... in fact it's just over 1 week away! What is GeoVenture? It is our annual camping and geocaching weekend that takes place in mid to late August. This year's theme is 'The Games People Play".

It's also the 31 Days of August. Geocaching.com is giving a virtual souvenir for every day that you find a Geocache in the month of August. This is certainly inspiring many streakers!

This coming Sunday, glacier_ice will be presenting a seminar on hiding Geocaches. Great for first time hiders!

After GeoVenture, OHMIC has organized a trip to Churchill (2nd edition) with a good number of people signed up.

For Cachers of Winnipeg, please note that Manitoba Hydro is refitting a transmission line in the North East quadrant of the city. The line runs from Birds Hill through East Kildonan and into Elmwood. If you have any Geocaches hidden along this stretch of transmission line, yours may be disrupted.

No pub night this year. As well attended as last year's was, We had to make the call to not hold one and focus our activities closer to base camp.

Ok... It's still in all the descriptions on the webpage, so I thought there was one happening.

Ooohhh, I missed that! That would be a result of a partial copy paste from last year's. Thanks for pointing it out GG! Smile
