2012 WGA Campout More about Printer Friendly Send to a Friend 
Upcoming Events
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!)

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.

West Bend’s Cache Ba$h Gets Bigger in 2011 More about Printer Friendly Send to a Friend 
Upcoming Events
West Bend Cache Ba$h writes:  

 

Midwest’s largest geocaching event adds high-tech activities, new caches
 
July 25, 2011 (West Bend, WI)—Plug in 43.4227777˚N, 88.1842611˚W to your GPS on a sunny day in August and you just may find yourself in the middle of a Bash.
 
A Cache Ba$h, to be precise.
 
Set in West Bend, Wisconsin, the fourth annual Cache Ba$h is one of the Midwest’s largest celebrations of geocaching. This year’s Ba$h begins on Friday, August 12 and continues through Sunday morning on August 14. 
 
The event brings together serious geocachers and families for a weekend of high tech hide-and-seek. Competitive participants come for the $1,000 in prizes, and to talk about the latest tactics and technologies. Other geocachers make their way to West Bend for the friendly community, the challenge of level-five difficulty hides and family-centered activities.
 
Small town, big draw
 
The Cache Ba$h in West Bend has been Wisconsin’s largest Geocaching event for three years running, but organizers say the crowds just keep getting bigger. In 2010 Ba$h attendance broke its previous best with 1,556 teams and more than 1,800 cachers at the event.
 
Followers of Midwest geocaching aren’t surprised: West Bend is the region’s geocaching Mecca, with an incredible 750 geocaches within a 7-mile radius. And that number continues to grow. Organizers plan to add 60 new caches before the Ba$h begins. The event (and its $1,000 purse) draws geocachers from across the Midwest, but also from across the world: in its first four years the Cache Ba$h has had registrants from as far off as Denmark, England, Bulgaria, South Africa and Germany.
 
What’s new?
 
Since even a great event can get stale, Cache Ba$h organizers work hard each year to bring new activities and options to event participants. Additions in 2011 include:
  • 60 new caches placed throughout West Bend
  • “Chirp” Cache—using Garmin Oregon GPS units, geocachers will follow the digital signal, or “chirp,” e-mitted by these caches to locate a geocache.
  • EarthCaching—Hidden in critical geoscience areas around West Bend, the event’s EarthCaches will educate cachers about the landscape, geography and unique topographical features of West Bend
  • Custom geocoins—a trackable coin (each has an individual serial number) engraved with images of West Bend
 
Look no further for family fun
 
The Cache Ba$h may have a competitive side, but organizers strive to keep the event as family-friendly as possible each year. In past years, kid-friendly events have included:
  • Free swim passes to Regner Park
  • Geochutes and Ladders game leading to a candy-filled cache
  • Beginning geocaching lessons
  • The Little Cachers Pennies and Prizes Treasure Hunt (ages 5 and under)
  • Secret treasure box activity (ages 6-12)
  • A post-Ba$h party (children allowed with parents from 7:00-9:00 p.m.)
  • Cool Cache Contest
  • WGA Big Ba$h pancake breakfast
 
For more information on the 2011 event, visit the Cache Ba$h website (http://westbendgeocaching.com/).
