Pancake Pig Out at the Bash

Pancake Pig Out at the Bash


The second weekend in August brought geocachers from all over the country (and even a few from other countries) to West Bend, WI for the West Bend Cache Bash Mega Event.  This event is hosted by the West Bend Chamber of Commerce, but your WGA did play a part in the festivities.  On Saturday morning the WGA taught a Geocaching 101 class so help new geocachers learn the game.  The attendance was good and now we have a few more players in the game. 

Also on Saturday, the WGA set up a booth selling logo apparel and merchandise.  We recently came out with a new product, the WGA cachekinz, which made its debut at the Bash.  Did you see them?  The new cachekinz have the WGA logo on one side and the tracking code on the other.  Next time you’re at a WGA event you can check them out.  A big thank you to Sweetlife for donating many pathtags for the pathtag wheel, which raised over $500 for the WGA.

Bright and early on Sunday morning the WGA was up flipping pancakes for hungry geocachers.  We served approximately 300 plates of pancakes, sausage, fruit and beverages to help people fuel up for another day of geocaching.  It was fun to talk to people as they told their stories about the Bash caches.  We geocachers just love to tell our tales from the trails!  After everyone thoroughly pigged out on pancakes they were ready to find more geocaches.

A big thank you to all who helped out to make these events happen.  Our volunteers are much appreciated!
