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 - June 2009

Yet again this improvising reporter has the pleasure of providing the intro for this month's cacher of the month. And again I have never met this family. I really must attend more events. So off to the profile page I go.
Looking at the profile picture I have determined that this family is proud of the fact they have no cavities. The last time I saw that many teeth I was at the dentist office.
The Bergmannfamily arrived on the caching scene in April 2007. Their mission is to reintroduce the almost extinct rural cache.

Cacher of the Month - May 2009

Shinook and 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.
