2012 WGA Winter Bonfire and Chili Feed - GC39JNK


Some hearty souls got together Saturday, February 25th for the 3rd annual WGA Bonfire and Chili Feed. This years event was held at the Horicon International Education Center, located just a short distance from Horicon. This years venue was a real treat, not only for its excellent facilities,
but also for the large number of excellent caches to be found in the area.

In attendance were 97 cachers from across the state, many of whom ate large quantities of chili, hot dogs, and other delicious foods that were prepared for the event.

A lot of caches were found over the weekend in the Horicon area. One log of note for
GC38XJP by geocacher "dawnzie" states, "Started out at the event and then went off caching on my own. I pulled up at this one, got out of the van, and I heard Averith yell "reinforcements are here". I said what you give up? He said no he was looking at past logs. I walked up to GZ took a quick look to get a feel of the area and I walked right over picked it saying "here it is". Then Labrat_wr walked over, just in time to sign. Sweetlife said they were there for 10 minutes looking. TFTC"

Other activities at this years event were several impromptu classes on using GSAK, and how to set-up cache pages. A table full of trackables was available for trade and discovery, with 92 travel bugs, geocoins, and other trackables being registered on the cache page.

The blustery weather we had made having a large bonfire difficult, though a number of brave people were gathered around a portable fire pit out in the driveway.

Saturday's event was a great deal of fun, both for the caches found as well as the socializing that took place.

Thank you to the 2012 Winter Event Committee made up of: JimandLinda, Janks15, RCflyer2242, beccaday, Trekkin and Birdin, and amita17. As well as the staff at the
Horicon International Education Center

The winners have been determined in the 2011 WGA Campout photo contest. With sixty photos entered, the top two vote getters (a tie) are #2 (view across Allen Lake) by Frizz


and #60 (Chucky and winning fish) by Gram&Gramps.

Each winning photographer will receive a 2010 WGA geocoin. With all of the great photos submitted, the WGA will be using many of them on this web site to promote events and other fun activities that WGA members can take part in.

Thank you to everyone who submitted photos and who voted for their favorites. Keep an eye out for more photo contests at future events and maybe some “just because”.

If your username contains an apostrophe (') or an amphersand (&), you will not be able to log in to the WGA web-site correctly. We are working to fix the problem, but it will take some time.

If you would like to be able to login to the website, send an email to webmaster (at) wi-geocaching (dot) com. Don't forget to include your username in the message. I will take out or replace the characters in your username that are causing problems. When the problem is fixed, I will be happy to change your username back if you wish.
