Welcome

Welcome Introduction

Geocaching is a worldwide adventure sport which utilizes GPS devices to hide and seek hidden containers called geocaches. (Learn more about geocaching) To get started geocaching, all you need is a GPS receiver and a geocache location. (Learn more about getting started) You can find a nearby geocache location at geocaching.com by entering an address or town into the search box.

The Manitoba Geocaching Association (MBGA) strives to advance the sport of geocaching through social activities, public education and promotion of geocaching. (Learn more about the MBGA).

Cacher of the Month - March 2014

Stonagal

Stonagal

Stonagal serves on the Board of Directors for the MBGA. He's listed as the "MBGA Statistician" ... so, let's see how his stats hold up. In 2013, he found an average of 5.1342 caches per day (I have to use that many decimals because we're talking statistics here ... we need to be accurate). This year, his average has fallen to 1.1915 caches per day. (Like I'm the one to talk ... my average is only 0.0638 caches per day!) I know he's an active cacher, so we'll chalk that up to the unending winter that we're experiencing this year. I also wouldn't be surprised if, by the end of the year, his average goes back up near last year's numbers. He has almost found a cache placed on each calendar day. I promise not to archive my February 29th cache for a while yet. Looking at his stats page I'm quite envious of the travelling he's done. I know he'll soon be eligible for the Earth to the Moon Challenge (GC3D00T).

Enough about the numbers... Stonagal has been a fixture at many MBGA events. Even though he has been going to college in The Pas for the last few months, he does his best to keep in touch, urging others to find caches and attend events. I find his personality very positive and exuberant, and he is very supportive. I also have to add, after years of creating these Cacher of the Month pages and over a decade's experience of writing HTML code, that for the first time, I've had to look up the code to put emoticons on a web page. I was going to skip them, but they did enhance his story. Read on, and learn more about the MBGA's Cacher of the Month: Stonagal.
