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).

Upcoming events

11-12-13 Multi Event Coin

Hello MBGA members,

We were just invited to an opportunity that is going to happen quickly. There is going to be an 11-12-13 Multi event this year in similar fashion to the last number of years (8-8-8, 9-9-9, 10-10-10, 11-11-11 and 12-12-12). This will actually happen on two dates, November 12th, 2013 and December 11, 2013 because different countries record their dates differently.

There will be a Geocoin for these events and we are looking to bring in a Manitoba coin. Our order deadline is October 3rd, so we need to know very quickly what the approximate interest is.

Milestones achieved in June 2013

After a hiatus, the recording and calculations of member milestones returns. In the past, there was an automated script to handle this task. Due to gc.com site changes, this is done manually. As well, in the past, the lowest milestone that was recognized was the 100th cache find.
