2012 WGA Campout Event Review More about Printer Friendly Send to a Friend 
Organization News
Anonymous writes:  

Another WGA Campout event is in the books! We brought the event back to the location of the very first WGA Geo-Campout, held in 2001 at Governor Dodge State Park. More than 170 geocachers checked in during the weekend. Dozens of campers took advantage of the whole Geo-Campout experience and joined the fun at the group campsites. There was a lot of chatting, trash talking and storytelling as the campfires burned late into the night. Several more cachers camped in the more comfortable (but less fun) individual campsites on the other end of the park.

With everything that the campout committee had planned for the weekend, the weather couldn't have been better. The fish were not being very cooperative for the fishing contest, but nobody complained since a bad day of fishing is better than a good day at work (or school)! The CITO event was was very well attended and got a lot of cachers back out on the trails for a couple of hours. The park staff now knows where all of their benches are.

Young cachers were treated to a treasure hunt, complete with an authentic looking treasure map. Finding the map was the hardest part for a few kids, but what could be better than finding a real treasure chest filled with candy and swag?

The "pig guy" showed up Saturday morning and started preparing the feast for the pig roast. WGA board members served up plates of pork, beans and potato salad to a bunch of hungry geocachers. Our sincere apologies to anyone that missed out.

It looked like the night caches were going to be a non-event, but Team Kauai showed up at the last minute and set up a great cache with sound, motion sensors, lights and an angler fish. They are already planning to have several night caches set up at the 2013 campout event.

The Sunday morning pancake breakfast is a long standing tradition at the WGA campout events, and is still going strong. Some old pros and a few rookies served up pancakes and sausages while cachers from across the state took advantage of the opportunity for a little more chatting and goodbyes.

Planning is well under way for the next WGA campout event. A potential site has been picked, and something special is in the works. Keep an eye out for more details and make your own plans to attend the 2013 WGA Campout event!

2012 WGA Spring Adopt-A-Highway Cleanup CITO Comment Printer Friendly Send to a Friend 
Organization News
Anonymous writes:  


Saturday, April 14 2012 approximately 25 cachers got together along a 2 mile stretch of US Hwy 10 between Reedsville and Brillion to clean up litter. In just over an hour the work was completed, and the full garbage bags piled up near a stop sign.

This springs clean up seemed relatively light compared to past years, this may be do to the milder than normal winter we have experienced this year.

The final count of bags

Thank you to everyone that came out Saturday to help clean up our 2 mile stretch of Hwy 10, and a big thank you to Cheeto (Shane) for setting up the highway clean up and getting everything organized.
