GeoVenture 2015


August 14, 15 16
Birds Hill Park Group Use Area 1 (North Side) Site #6a
(Group reservation cost $500)

What is GeoVenture? It is the MBGA's annual family friendly group camping Geocaching weekend. This is the 9th year and it celebrates the MBGA's 10th anniversary. There are 6 different events, listed below, that Geocachers can attend.

Why attend? Purely for fun. It is a very enjoyable way to get to know the community of Geocachers we have around Manitoba. While most attendees of GeoVenture tend to be people who live close to Winnipeg, we do have some that travel longer distances to attend. The best reason to attend any Geocaching event is to meet the people who hide the Geocaches you have been finding!

Oh, another great reason for this year is the souvenir for International Geocaching day. That's Saturday, August 15th. We have 3 events for you to choose from to earn that souvenir. Come fuel up on pancakes, then run the challenge and stay for the BBQ!

Camping: on the 14th and 15th, cost is $20 per tent per night.

    We're planning on being there! Will be bringing the tent, expect we'll camp the Saturday night, possibly the Friday night depending how the work schedule plays out.

    The missus is a HUGE X-files fan, so we're REALLY looking forward to this one!

    I will be camping Saturday- possibly Friday night but have the Bomber game. What time does the park "close"- can I arrive late?

    I had to give away my Bombers tickets for that night.

    You'll be able to come in late, Sandy.

    Mike- how early can we check in? I think I'd like to set up early, go to the Bomber game and then come back.

    In the past, we've started setting up as early as 1pm. As long as there isn't a group booking ahead of us. The odds are pretty slim on that.
