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.

GeoVenture 2016: Summer Camp will be happening in historic and picturesque Camp Morton Provincial park, just 8km North of Gimli. Camp Morton is a beautiful and scenic location right on the shore of Lake Winnipeg with many historic buildings around the park. We believe Geocachers will fall in love with the scenery.
We have decided to go with a back to basics approach this year, due to the change in venue and the lack of full services, compared to previous years at Birds Hill Park.

The Red River Co-op Speedway has kindly invited the MBGA to host a table along with other exhibitors on race night!
Red River Co-op Speedway is the largest oval dirt track in central Canada and offers great fun for the whole family and we are thrilled they want to highlight our 'sport'! The MBGA setup at the speedway will be similar to that of the RV show with a treasure hunt for the kids (or adults).

Presenting... the new MBGA Logo!
The creation of the new logo was months of back breaking research that took us into the deepest jungles (of tall grass) and climbing the steepest mountains Riding Mountain). We interviewed the cleverest of garden gnomes and spoke with the nicest of Babel Fish.
