GC5CDBD 1 of the Most Amazing Beginner Geocaches - WI Comment Printer Friendly Send to a Friend 
Upcoming Events

 

Within a very short time (maybe this week), Geocaching Headquarters has calculated that the 1 MILLIONTH geocache in the U.S. will be active. 1 MILLION US Geocaches!

In honor of this great achievement, there has to be a celebration, so the staff at Geocaching.com has poured over all of the incredible caches and decided to honor 8 of the Most Amazing Geocaches in the US for Beginners.


Not surprisingly, Wisconsin is home to one of those 8 special caches, with the honor going to GC3K9TV What the CLUCK!  by Stewzoo1.  In honor of this distinction, the WGA along with Geocaching Headquarters will be hosting an event to recognize their achievement.



Where: Tendick Park, Saukville, WI
When: September 21
Time: 3 pm- 5 pm
Who: Open to all geocachers, families, and anyone interested in learning about geocaching
What: GC5CDBD 1 of the Most Amazing Beginner Geocaches - WI

Want to be a part of this, here is the plan:

We will get together at Tendick Park for a little celebration, including fun giveaways from Geocaching HQ. Those new to geocaching are invited to attend. We’ll talk about geocaching, what makes a good beginner geocache, get to know each other, and swap stories from the geocaching trail, maybe even toss in a Geocaching 101 class and possibly a couple surprises just for fun.

After the event, we’ll all hop in our cars and take the short drive to GC3K9TV What the CLUCK! to experience one of the most amazing geocaches in the US for beginners.

...and of course, geocaching beginners are welcome!

2014 WGA Geo Picnic Comment Printer Friendly Send to a Friend 
Upcoming Events

Kettle Moraine State Forest - Lapham Peak Unit The park is located 3/4 mile south of I-94 on County Hwy C (Delafield exit). The main attraction of the park is the 45 foot observation tower atop the highest point in Waukesha County.  The park’s glaciated topography provides excellent hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, and cross-country skiing on the lighted trails.

*****Lapham Peak does require a state park admission sticker or daily pass to enter the park.*****

There are currently many caches in the park, keep your eyes open for new caches placed for the picnic.  The fall colors will make this a beautiful place to get out and cache.  And don't forget to make a visit to the park's tower to see the fall colors from above the trees.
