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).

Upcoming events

Cacher of the Month - May 2009

Shinook and White Juan

Shinook & White Juan
Shinook & White Juan

Having never met Shinook and White Juan I was asked to provide an intro for the cacher of the month honor. After a visit to their profile page this is what I found:
Shinook aka Macho Man, aka Randy Savage, moved to Canada in 2004 after retiring from pro wrestling. The constant hounding of the Paparazzi drove this duo to Northern Manitoba. With all the new found spare time they began Geocaching as a way to stay in shape.
Along with White Juan they have travelled all across Canada making guest appearances at local wrestling events.
