Bonfire on the Bay

WGA chili event

Late in February about 120 geocachers met at the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary in Green Bay to warm up with some chili and a bonfire.  The newly elected WGA Board of Directors attended and they were able to talk with the members. Everyone in attendance received a free pathtag from the WGA.  Being able to geo-chat with cachers around the state is one of the best parts of attending events.  Below is WalkingAdventure stoking the bonfire where cachers gathered to stay warm outside in the snow.  Watch out for flying snowballs!




The chili was tasty, although it did kick off some lively debate over whether or not noodles were an acceptable addition.  No matter where you went in the facility you would find pockets of cachers chatting away about their latest adventures or discovering travel bugs.  

Geo-chatting is always fun but this location provided a lot of entertainment as well.   Of course there were geocaches to find near scenic Green Bay.  The children (and the young at heart) enjoyed the hands-on exhibits in the sanctuary.  There were also animals to watch and even to feed.  The ducks were especially grateful for the corn!




Thank you to the committee members that helped plan and carry out the event:  Curly girls, amita17, beccaday and the other WGA Board of Directors.
