The 2011 WGA Geo Picnic is nearly here! On September 17th, hundreds of geocachers will converge at Brunet Island State Park for a day of caching and camaraderie. Dozens of new caches have been placed in the area for the event. If you enjoy canoeing and kayaking there are a number of new, challenging T5 island caches. New caches have also been placed along the scenic Old Abe Trail. The Old Abe Trail is over 19 miles of paved trail running South to Lake Wisota State Park.
The WGA picnic committee has planned activities to keep everyone busy all day, including Geo-Golf, Geo-Bingo, kids’ activities, a photo contest and Challenge geocaches. The grills will be fired up at Noon and again at around 5 PM. Please check the event page for a complete schedule and information.
The WGA will be selling tee-shirts, sweat shirts, hoodies, 2011 Geo Picnic Pathtags and 2011 WGA Geo Coins all day during the event. You will be helping to promote and support the Wisconsin Geocaching Association with your purchase of any of these great items.

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

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/).

The WGA is sponsoring 2 CITOs this coming Saturday. What better way to celebrate Earth Day than by attending a CITO with caching friends.

See

See
GC2QW2A for details on the highway 10 cleanup. This will be again on the WGA's section of highway 10, near Brillion, east of Appleton.

See ya there! (well at one of em, anyway)

The WGA Board of Directors is in the process of finalizing details for the first WGA winter event to be held on February 27, 2010. Unfortunately several potential venues in south central Wisconsin have fallen through recently so we are still debating where to hold this event. So keep February 27th open on your calendar and check back here in a few weeks for more details.
