The WGA would like to thank all the candidates who decided to run for the Board this year. All of the candidates were well qualified to serve on the Board and all would have done a great job and been an asset to the organization if elected. They all invested significant time and effort into running by explaining their viewpoints, describing their background, and answering questions in the Candidates Corner forum so that members could make an informed decision when it came time to vote.

Also, thanks to all the WGA members who spent time learning about the candidates, carefully considering the choices, and casting their votes. The involvement of members in this leadership selection process is crucial to the long-term success of the organization.

January 2014 West Central Zone - Curse of the Kiwanis, House of Karrmann by birddog58

  • "Well hidden cache in a unique location."
  • "This is a creative hide in a great location . Love the area and the GZ choice . This cache is what geocaching is about!"

  • "A great place to experience the Niagara Escarpment!"

January 2014 Series of the Month - Key to Happiness Series by Da Cache Cows

Lonely Cache Game Event Comment Printer Friendly Send to a Friend 
Upcoming Events

WGA LCG Event| Frozen Mosquito

The Lonely Cache Game event is less than a week away, have you logged your “will attend” yet? We are actually looking at positive numbers for this weekend’s temperature so this is the perfect time to get out and do some geocaching!


The 2013 Lonely Cache Game Event will be held February 1st from 1-3 PM at Mosquito Hill Nature Center, just east of New London. We will be using the new Great Room for a bit of bragging, snacking, and awards. The Center also has snowshoes for rent and has 5 geocaches and 1 Earthcache on the grounds. A few more hides may show up before the event so stay posted.

For anyone that has played the LCG, this is always a great way to reminisce on all the great adventures that happened in 2013. If you are curious about the game, come on out and get informed! Many of Wisconsin's best caches are "Lonely"! Join us for socializing and geo-talk about everything that makes WI geocaching special. We'll talk about Cache Rescues and the Lonely Cache Game, which has the sole purpose of encouraging people to visit those WI geocaches that are not often visited and to keep our caches in tip top shape for all visitors.

Never played the LCG? Not important. Just stop by and enjoy the Meet and Greet.
