A Message From The President
Will the snow ever stop?! As Wisconsin geocachers, we've been spoiled the last 2 winters, with the lack of the white stuff. This season is a good reminder to seekers, (and cache owners) on what that 'snowflake icon' means!
Our first 2 WGA Events have come and gone; the LCG Event at Horicon and Bonfire on the Bay in Green Bay. Our thanks to the member volunteers that helped plan and execute these well attended gatherings.
The WGA Board of Directors met on Sunday, February 25th for 7 1/2 hours of WGA business. This was our required organizational meeting according to the WGA By-laws. The Association has always been blessed by good leaders, and the 2013 Board promises to continue that tradition in the coming year.
If the snow ever melts, the trash from the last 6 months will start to rear it's ugly head! Watch the Events List for WGA sponsored and locally sponsored CITO Events across the state.
The anticipation is building toward the WGA Spring Campout, being held on May 17-19 at Interstate Park near St. Croix Falls. Could this lead to an eventual MegaEvent? You should probably attend, so you can say, "I remember the first one!"
Finally, it is once again my privilege to serve another year as the President of the WGA. Please feel free to contact me at any time in the coming months with your input or comments. Better yet; introduce yourself at a WGA Event! I'd love to hear your "tales from the trails"!
Jim Bliefnick, WGA President
Don’t forget to CITO!
CITO stands for Cache In, Trash Out. Geocachers are always encouraged to bring bags with them to CITO while they are out geocaching to pick up garbage. Soon the snow will be melting and we’ll be seeing all of the garbage that got blown around during the winter months. Want to attend a CITO event? Visit the WGA website to find one near you. Are you interested in hosting a CITO event? Contact the WGA to find out more information about sponsoring your event, providing limited financial support. Let’s help keep our Wisconsin trails and parks clean!
WHERE: US HWY 10 between Hickory Hills Rd. and CTH W
