Hello WGA!

As the calender year winds down, I find myself sitting at a hospital in Sheboygan, waiting for Linda to return from knee surgery. We are looking forward to her being able to get out and hunt caches again.

The end of the year means it's time for Board of Director nominations and elections. Watch for details in the WGA Forums for nomination/voting deadlines.

I've had many new cachers ask me over the years, "Can you geocache in winter?" ABSOLUTELY!! You can also do a bit of socializing at a few WGA sponsored Events, too.

The Lonely Cache Game Event will enjoy it's third year at the Horicon Marsh International Visitor Center near Horicon on February 2nd, 2013 (Ground Hogs Day). You don't need to play the LCG to come out and hear some of the wildest stories from the past year.

Mark Green Bay on your GPS and February 23rd on your calendar for the WGA Chili Feed/Bonfire Event, being held at the Bay Beach Nature Center. A great place to meet new cachers, wolf down some chili, and get some more winter caching in!

We are 3 months into the WGA TB Race! There are already 14 Travel Bugs with over 1000 miles on them, and 3 with over 7,000 miles! Some have been muggled, too. There's a lot of racing to be done yet, not to mention the fabulous prizes to be won!

A great group of attendees were seen at Pike Lake in September at the WGA GeoPicnic. If you think that was fun, wait until May 17-19 next year, when the WI/MN Joint Campout is held at Interstate Park near St. Croix Falls! An Event sure to create some new caching friends and lifetime memories.

Linda should be back to the hospital room soon. The doctor said everything went great. Here's hoping you have a great Holiday Season and good caching in the New Year.

Jim Bliefnick, President - WGA

Hello WGA!

I hope everyone got a taste of geocaching during the drought of '12. With winter and road construction as the 2 official Wisconsin seasons, the "dry heat" added a new dimension to the fun!

Congratulations to jjcool719 for submitting the winning design for the WGA 10th Anniversary geocoin. The coin was made available during the West Bend Cache Ba$h and more than 100 were sold! You can order your 2012 WGA Geocoing in antique silver or antique gold finish from the WGA Store!

Are you ready for a picnic? Pike Lake near Hartford is the location for the WGA GeoPicnic. This will close out the 10th anniversary celebration of the WGA. You wouldn't want to miss the dessert, would you?

For those that are looking to 2013, we have been in contact with the Minnesota Geocaching Association to co-host the Campout in northwest Wisconsin next year. That should make for an interesting T-shirt design!

It was good to see many of you stop by the WGA Booth at the West Bend Cache Ba$h. A big thank you to all 9 Board Members for their time helping and the other member volunteers that assisteded during the 3 day Mega Event. Your purchases of WGA merchandise helps support this great organization, as does eating pancakes and sausage on Sunday morning!

The football season is upon us. If your favorite team isn't playing up to par, grab the GPS and do something productive! The score will be the same, whether your watching or not!

See you in the woods!

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!
