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).

This month's cacher of the month is another geocacher that I have not had the opportunity to meet yet. However, I have heard his name in our caching community for many years. Hailing from Southwestern Manitoba, he is one of the more active cache hiders in the area with 50 distinct hides (so far). If you're looking for something to do on a weekend this summer, why not plan a trip to the Winkler/Morden area and check out some of his caches! I guarantee it would be worth the trip!

Cacher of the Month - April 2011

Several years ago the MBGA was approached by the Manitoba Metis Federation to train some of their executive on how to hide geocaches. Their goal was to host an event for their community that included a geocache hunt that took their members to areas significant to the Metis people. I was the representative of the board sent to assist them. Lynda was the first person I had met. She was very enthusiastic and had even prepped postcards describing historical landmarks that they were planning on using. Lynda soon became a fervent geocacher, placing many new caches around the city of Winnipeg and encorporating a lot of the Metis history into them. She has recently hit her 1,000th find after only 3 years in the game. Congratulations, Lynda!
