Caching Name: tuppergurl

Real Name: April Wozny

Geocaching experience: I found out about geocaching in September 2009 from crackerjakie and fell in love with it ever since. I try to hit a milestone every month and appreciate clever caches and hides. I am a little over 400 caches found and have hidden a few here and there, mostly joint hides with other cachers. Geocaching is a social sport for me and I enjoy caching with other people so you won't find me caching alone often; however, I don't seem to have a problem finding fellow cache addicts to geocache with. I try to leave a mini Tupperware treat in every cache I visit (where I can fit one anyway).

Special Skills and Abilities: I have the uncanny ability to find a cache after everyone I am with has given up. I am also adept at finding a way to wipe out on the way to a cache regardless of terrain. I bring my sheer enthusiasm for caching to the MBGA Executive should I be elected.

Caching Name: ohmic

Real Name: Jacques Bourgeois

Geocaching experience: I placed my first geocaches on March 26, 2003 at Oak Hammock Marsh as a way to lure visitors to my workplace. I started caching on November 5, 2006.
I have placed 75 and found over 5000 geocaches.
I have been a board member of the MBGA since 2007.

Special Skills and Abilities: Because of my role as events planning, marketing and promotion at Oak Hammock Marsh, I am well connected with many media in Winnipeg and Manitoba. I have been involved with the GPS, GIS and Geocaching education programs offered at Oak Hammock Marsh Interpretive Centre for the past 10 years where I’ve delivered workshops to hundreds of students and educators of various grade levels. I have also developed several GPS and geocaching workshops for tourism organizations and other associations.

Caching Name: Glacier_ice

Real Name: Mike Neale, (aka Red Shirt Brian as Dani calls me)

Geocaching experience: Geocaching is something that I started in 2006, thanks to my Dad who introduced me. I did only one cache that year and didn't get my second cache until July 2007. The bug bit then and I haven't looked back.


Special Skills and Abilities: I'm married with two Ice Cubes, er, kids and one bird. I currently work as an Educational Assistant for Special Needs students in grades 10, 11 and 12 at Miles MacDonell Collegiate.

I volunteer quite extensively outside of work. I have been working with Special Olympics for about 15 years. While I don't coach, I serve or chair several committees. This year, I'm the communications mission staff for Team Manitoba which will be competing in London Ontario in July.

I am also one of the television directors at Springs Church and have volunteered with the television team for 9 years. This past couple of years, I've been helping out with drama productions at Miles Mac by setting up the lighting and audio.


So what do I have to offer? Well, a bald head, a goofy smile and a red shirt and one year of experience on the MBGA Exec board.

Cache on!

Caching Name: Dani_Carriere

Real Name: Danielle Carriere

Geocaching experience: I’ve been here since the beginning. No, not of time, of the MBGA

Special Skills and Abilities: Everyone loves me.
