8-8-8, 9-9-9, 10-10-10, 11-11-11, 12-12-12 and now... 11-12-13 !

Part 1 is November 12, 2013

Why two dates? Different parts of the world use their date schemes differently. Some use MM-DD-YY and others use DD-MM-YY. We decided to celebrate this event twice!

Cacher of the Month - September 2013

T S K


How do I start my introductory paragraph about this month's MBGA Geocacher of the Month, T S K? How about with a number ... 573 ... that's the number of consecutive days T S K has been caching as of the writing of this page. By the time you read this, it could be considerably more. That's 573 days of non-stop caching without breaks for illness or emergencies. Very impressive. Hal of T S K is an avid cacher always seeking someone to do cache runs in the evening and attending most of our events. You'll know him to see him... often clad in very geocaching friendly overalls. I've been thinking of his overalls as a great choice for caching as there are so many easily accessible pockets that he can stash pens, extra log books, TOTT's, gloves and anything else a cacher may need while on the trail. He isn't burdened by carrying a disorganized bag like I do. T S K are very friendly folk, always enjoying lighthearted and in-depth conversations about geocaching. Congratulations on being selected as the MBGA's Geocacher of the Month for September!

11-12-13 Multi Event Coin

Hello MBGA members,

We were just invited to an opportunity that is going to happen quickly. There is going to be an 11-12-13 Multi event this year in similar fashion to the last number of years (8-8-8, 9-9-9, 10-10-10, 11-11-11 and 12-12-12). This will actually happen on two dates, November 12th, 2013 and December 11, 2013 because different countries record their dates differently.

There will be a Geocoin for these events and we are looking to bring in a Manitoba coin. Our order deadline is October 3rd, so we need to know very quickly what the approximate interest is.
