2013 WGA Campout Comment Printer Friendly Send to a Friend 
Upcoming Events

 

Spring is just around the corner, so it’s time to start planning for the WGA Spring Campout Event. This year, the WGA has joined forces with the Minnesota Geocaching Association in hosting an interstate campout!
Camping Optional
You don’t need to camp to attend. Book a motel or just stop in for a day. The WGA has reserved both group campsites. You may also reserved your own campsite, but they are going fast.
Location
The campout will be held at Interstate State Park, which is one of the most scenic parks in the entire state. You’ll see fascinating glacial potholes and the steep, narrow gorge called The Dalles of the St. Croix. With nine miles of trails, there is plenty to see.
Dates
Mark your calendar for May 17-19.
Activities
There will be plenty to keep you busy and entertained for the entire weekend. We’re hosting a campfire social at the group campsite on Friday and Saturday nights. Saturday you will be able to show off your rustic culinary skills in the Dutch Oven Cook-off, join the Interstate Tug-O-War, or if you enjoy fishing, join the fishing derby. The Kids' Adventure Cache will be available all day. Details for all activites will be available at the Interstate Shelter.
There will be a presentation by DNR Natural Resource Educator Julie Fox on Saturday Morning. Julie will be explaining the unique geology of the area as well as the history of Interstate Park.
Join us on Saturday night for night caches! They blink. They twinkle. They glow in the dark. There is no telling what you may find. Anyone is invited to place a night cache, so get going!
Several new caches will be placed in and around the park in addition to the dozens already within three miles. If you are really ambitious, there are over 20 caches along the Gandy Dancer trail starting less than a mile from the park entrance.
Other activities at Interstate Park include hiking, biking, swimming, canoeing and kayaking, rock climbing and fishing. You can also visit the Ice Age Interpretive Center or pick up a souvenir at the gift shop.
Merchandise
You’ll have the opportunity to purchase limited edition WGA/MnGCA Interstate Campout apparel as well as WGA Geocoins, pathtags and Groundspeak merchandise at the Interstate Shelter on Saturday.
 
Post your Will Attend on the Geocaching.com web page. If you have any questions or comments or are just looking for more info, go to the Interstate Campout forum.

The WGA Picnic to Picnic Travel Bug Race More about Printer Friendly Send to a Friend

On your marks!!!

The WGA Picnic committee will be hosting the very first WGA Travelbug Race. This race will start at the 2012 WGA Fall Picnic at Pike Lake on September 22, and continue for a full year; ending at the 2013 picnic event. The travel bug that travels the most miles during that time will be the winner.

Get Set!!!

The details are still being worked out, but the basic rules are as follows:
1. All travel bugs must be present at the 2012 WGA Picnic event. Travel Bug tags will be available for sale at the event if needed.
2. The first stop for your traveler should be the picnic event. You can either take it with you to place in a cache of your choice, or leave it with the event staff to be dropped in one of several undisclosed caches around the state.
3. Only the FIRST move by a single cacher will be counted for miles. (No "dipping" for miles.)
4. The main reason for this race is to have fun. Please don't spoil it by trying to find a way to "beat the system".
5. Bragging in the WGA website forums is allowed and encouraged.

The race will be tracked on tb-run.com. This is not a public race, so check the forums for the link and password. Registration is required, but it's easy and free.

Watch for more details in the Fall Picnic threads in the WGA Forums. (Click Here)

2012 WGA Campout More about Printer Friendly Send to a Friend

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!)

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.

labrat_wr writes:  

The third annual WGA Winter event is just a few days away! It will be held at the Horicon Marsh International Education Center in Horicon, WI on Saturday, February 25th from 10AM to 3:30PM. There will be plenty of hot chili to warm you up after caching or hiking/snowshoeing on the trails at HMIEC.

This will also be an opportunity to meet some of the newly elected WGA board members. If you have any ideas / suggestions for the organization, this would be a good time to share them.

Registration and more information can be found here.
