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).

Cacher of the Month - November 2009

Yey... it's improvising time again. trag_cachers - what can I say about trag_cachers? Really...what can I say about trag_cachers? Well it was off to the profile page again. I am not sure if Mr. T is aware that a lot of us have a hard time looking at profile pictures that are only 1cm tall. Dragging out the magnifying glass, I must assume the 100 is the number of the caches they found or it could be a ransom amount for the kid. Now the light goes on - g - traG, part of his entourage. OK he is a family man. Maybe the 100 is the number of the kid. Wow that is a big family.

Well that is enough from my imagination. I know Mr.T is a huge Bomber fan. ( I wonder if trag_cachers are fans?) Too bad the Bombers have such a (insert negative adjective) coach. (But that is a whole new web page) I can see that this family enjoys caching and we will see more them (if they use a bigger profile pic) in the near future. Congrats trag_cachers for being the Cacher of the Month.
