Past News: 2012 WGA Campout

Anonymous writes:  
The 2012 WGA Campout is coming up fast! The event will be held on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, June 1st, 2nd and 3rd at Governor Dodge State Park. This was the location of the very first WGA Campout, and the event will be the 10th anniversary celebration of the Wisconsin Geocaching Association. This is going to be one you don't want to miss.

The WGA BOD and the campout committee have been hard at work for the past few months planning this event. There are a number of activities in the works including a fishing derby, Geo Golf, GPS Inaccuracy game, family and kids' activities, a photo contest, the annual WGA Night Cache contest and much more!

As usual, we have reserved a couple of group campsites, and there is still room for more campers. See the WGA Upcoming Events page for more info on camping. Remember that you do not need to camp to attend this event. Come for the day, or stay all weekend! If you are camping at the group site, don't forget to pay for your camping in the WGA Store.

We will have WGA merchandise for sale including WGA shirts, 2012 WGA Campout shirts, WGA Geocoins and Campout Pathtags. Help support the Wisconsin Geocaching Association with your purchase.

Join us at the campfire after sunset at the group campsite. Don't forget to bring the marshmallows and your best caching or fishing stories! Non-campers are welcome, but must be out of the park by 11PM.

As a special "Thank You" to everyone that has supported the Wisconsin Geocaching Association over the last decade, we are going to be having a pig roast on Saturday. This is a seperate event, and everyone is invited! More details are in the next article, but for less than the price of a quarter pound cheeseburger, you can get a big plate of roasted pork with all the fixin's!

Finish off the weekend at the annual WGA Pancake Breakfast on Sunday Morning. We'll be serving up hot pancakes, sausage and your favorite breakfast beverage from 8 to 10 AM.
We hope to see you all at the 2012 WGA Campout Event at Governor Dodge State Park. Here are the links to the events.
2012 WGA Campout Pancake Breakfast (Not an official event, but you'll want to be there on Sunday morning!)

Anonymous writes:  

The WGA is 10 years old! The BOD has decided to celebrate this occasion with a PIG ROAST! It will be held in conjunction with the Campout at Governor Dodge State Park on Saturday, June 2nd (admission fee required). YOU DO NOT NEED TO CAMPOUT TO ATTEND!!

The Pig Roast is for ALL GEOCACHERS! The cost is $3/person, with a $13/family cap.

We would like to see as many of you as possible! Plan a day trip to the area with your family and caching friends. We will be gathering at 5 PM for a picture and info session, and then the pork will be served by past and current officers of the BOD.

You will be responsible for your own beverage... the rest is on the WGA! Our 10th anniversary only comes once, and we would like to have a good turnout for this special feast. We really believe this is "the one" you won't want to miss!

See the Upcoming Events page for more info.

Voting in the the 2012 WGA Board of Directors election has begun! To vote Click here.

WGA members may vote for up to 6 of the candidates before voting closes on Monday, February 13th at 11:59pm. Here are some general notes about this phase of the Board of Directors election process.

  •  Since there are 6 open Board positions, members may vote for up to 6 of the candidates.
  •  If you try to vote for more than 6 candidates, all your votes will be thrown out and you'll be given a chance to vote again.
  • Once you vote, you cannot vote again. Therefore, if you vote for fewer than 6 candidates, you can't come back and vote for more. Also, you can't change your votes (so get them right the first time!).
  • Voting will end at precisely 11:59pm on Monday, February 13, 2012.

The 6 candidates with the highest vote totals at the end of voting will fill the open Board positions. If you have any general questions about this phase of the election process, feel free to post them in the Candidates Corner 2012 forum. If you experience technical problems with the voting system or trouble with your WGA member account, you can contact Brian (Team Black-Cat).

The two election monitors this year are Barry Butrymowicz and Dave Secondino. At the end of the election they need to tally the votes and "certify" the election. Because of this, the official results may not be announced for a day or two after voting closes.
