Cachefest 2014 is less than a month away! This year's "Cachers of Catan" theme is just the adventure you're looking for. There will 50+ caches published(Traditionals, Power Puzzle Trail, Multi, CITO) for the event!

Cachers assume the roles of settlers, each attempting to build and develop settlements while acquiring resources in each cache they find. Individuals or Teams are rewarded points as their settlements grow. Earn points for your chance to win some sweet prizes.

We look forward to seeing everyone there for a fun filled weekend of caching!

The Cachefest 2014 weekend is almost here! We are all excited for the upcoming events and look forward to seeing you all there.

Here are some things you need to know:

Friday night – Bring a good flashlight or headlamp to participate in the night cache. It cools off now at night so bring warm clothing. The bugs are still out so bringing some spray would be a good idea. There is only so many picnic tables so if you can bring a lawn chair to sit around the fire. We will be providing sticks/marshmallows. When it gets dark enough we will be splitting up into small groups and taking turns to go out and find the night cache.

Saturday – The main event starts @ 9am at City Hall. We will be meeting up and going over the event details. We will introduce the Cachers of Catan format and hand out the event packages. The caches should be going live between 9 and 930. Once we hand out the packages you will be free to head out and find as many caches as you can. For anyone interested we will be doing a Geocaching 101 workshop to introduce people to geocaching. This will happen after we hand out the packages between 930 and 10. We ask that everyone meet back at City Hall at 4pm to hand in their Catan Passport. We will then be playing the game to see how many points everyone earned. Prizes will be awarded based on points and draws. Stick around for some snacks and refreshments as well. The event will wrap up around 5pm.

We have had a lot of rain lately so some of the areas that the caches have been placed are wet. We recommend bringing rubber boots as you may need them. Bring gloves as well if you plan on attending the CITO event.

54 caches will be published for the events. Don’t miss out on all the fun!

See you all this weekend!
