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

12-13-14 Geocoin Events - Winnipeg and Dauphin

On Saturday, December 13, the calendar can be read as 12-13-14. As in previous years, a special geocoin is being created to commemorate the occasion. And also as in previous years, the MBGA has ordered a custom coin featuring our corporate colours. Coins can be pre-ordered through our discussion forum. Events are taking place in Winnipeg (GC5GPRN) and Dauphin (GC5GD8G), where cachers will have their first opportunity to see and pick up up their coins.

The Winnipeg event is taking place at Smitty's restaurant, #8-2305 McPhillips Street (in Garden City Shopping Centre).

GC5FX00 - trag_cachers

I love attending Geocacaching events!! I love them so much that I have attended events in Manitoba, Minnesota, and Nevada!! I have attended so many events that my next event will be the 100th I have attended so I thought a fitting way to get event #100 would be with my local geofriends!! Come and talk some geocaching, watch the Jets take on the Detroit Red Wings on TV, and help me celebrate my milestone event attendance!!

Date: Thursday, November 20th
Time: 7:00 p.m.
