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).

GeoVenture 2017: Canada 150

We are just 18 days from the 12th Annual GeoVenture in Gimli!

It is International Geocaching Day on Saturday, August 19, what a great way to celebrate!

Below are some links to the information and where events are being held. It is VERY important that you log your will attends as we need to know how many people to expect!

Friday, August 18 7-10pm (Group Use area C)

Canada Day Breakfast event!

Happy Canada Day! (It's Canada Day in Newfoundland.)

Three things to note for attendees of the breakfast event.

1) We have an overwhelming response to this event. 50+ have posted a will attend!
(A great problem to have!) We know that some people will be coming near the start of the event and leaving early, some arriving later. In talking with Salisbury House, the room we have can hold 40. Anyone beyond that capacity will need to be seated elsewhere in the restaurant.

GeoCoin liquidation!

GeoCoin liquidation!
The MBGA is blowing out all the remaining coins (which isn't very many now) for $5.00 !!
Supplies are limited (we have 18 of the 11-12-13 coins) the link below has a photo of that coin. (These coins may go quickly and if they haven't sold tomorrow, they will be available at Thursday's event.)

We do have 50 of the MBGA 10th anniversary coins, but we have special plans for those. Look for details about the Canada 150 MBGA coin race soon. The race WILL be launching on July 1st, from the breakfast event.

Cool Caches in Canada!

4 cool caches... one of them owned by Manitoba's own bergmannfamily! (Unfortunately, we have to travel to Alberta to find their cool cache.)

Hello Geocachers!

Sunrise Corner Tourism has contacted the MBGA looking for a volunteer to lead two Geocaching sessions in the Eastman region this June. They plan to release 8-10 Geocaches at the second event as part of the weekend activities.

From you, our Geocachers, we are seeking someone who would be willing to participate and lead these events. If you are experienced with Geocaching but new to leading new people through discovering Geocaching, we can share our knowledge with you.
