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).

Jeremy Irish, Groundspeak founder Steps Down as President

Some recent news has popped up in the Groundspeak forums. Here is the official post from Jeremy Irish himself.

On behalf of the MBGA, thank you Jeremy for your service and congratulations on your new role. Congratulations to Bryan Roth, new Groundspeak president.

Hey folks!
Long time lurker, first time (recent) poster here. *waves*
I wanted to give you some shocking news. I've stepped down as president of Geocaching HQ (formerly known as Groundspeak, formerly known as Grounded, Inc.). I'm now Senior Vice President and Bryan Roth has taken the helm as president.
Yes, shocking...
