2015 MGS CITO

Come join the Maryland Geocaching Society as we clean up the beaches of Accokeek Farm at Piscataway National Park for our CITO event. This is a great way to give back to the community. Piscataway National Park is located on the shores of the Potomac River and the way the currents run in the Potomac, trash runs up ashore on the beaches. We will be helping them get their beaches read for their Food For Thought Event held a couple weeks later. The CITO will run for 10AM-Noon with a picnic being held afterward. There will also be a couple new geocaches put out in conjunction with the CITO. If you have not already done so, please log your Will Attend at the cache page listing, GC5TTR4. There is more information on what you will need for the CITO at the following link: MGS Forum. I hope to see you there.

MGS Fall Picnic

MGS Fall Picnic

Well, its getting near the end of Summer and its almost time for the leaves to start changing colors.  Its also time to start talking about the MGS Fall Picnic.  Every year we visit different sites around Western MD where you can get away from the city and enjoy the natural side of Maryland.

Please join us at Rocky Gap State Park on October 4th for some delicious food off the grill, some great conversations, some beautiful views, and some great caches.  Stick around for the Annual Corn Hole Tournament and maybe you can walk away with the coveted champion trophy.
