I've bought preforms from here in the past: http://www.teachersource.com/product/preforms-and-caps/chemistry

But if you just want one or two, the MBGA sells them.

I suspect that once again, Pub Night at the 59er should not be on the list.

It is indeed on the list. We are awaiting confirmation that we can have it at the 59er before publishing the event. Smile

Okay cool Mike! I know last year it was on the list, but wasn't meant to be, so thought it was the same this year.

Looking to earn the The 7 Souvenirs of August? Look no further than GeoVenture weekend!

At the GeoVenture weekend, you will be able to earn all 7 badges!
We will have Traditional, Mystery, Multi, Letterbox, Event and CITO all polished up for you. (The 7th badge comes from getting the previous 6.)

Only 3 weeks away!

(Pub night and Sunday morning CITO have been submitted for publication.)

I just have a quick question I'm wondering someone might be able to answer... Does the GeoVenture always happen on the same weekend in August every year? My hubby and I would have loved to join in but our Co-Ed Ultimate Championships are thus weekend every year. So just curious if there would be any chance in the future for us to come out. Very Happy
Thank you in advance and have an awesome time everyone!

.........jealous :p

GeoVenture always takes place in August (usually the second half). This year was one week later than it was last year.

I can only find 11 of the challenge caches posted on GC. Is one missing or am I crazy?

Same as Shebaz I cannot find the last one? It looks like "Leo" is missing.

Leo has not been published yet.

You may have noticed Leo was the only of the 12 (13!) that was actually inside the park. All caches inside provincial parks have to go through an approval process with Manitoba Conservation before they can be published on geocaching.com. As glacier_ice explained, Birds Hill has a lot going on at this time of year and they'll get around to approving Leo when they have time. We don't know when that will be, but it will be announced here and on facebook when it happens. The other 11 (12!) caches were in places that don't need special permission, so they were published right away.
