Come join the Maryland Geocaching Society in an effort to give back a little to the environment and parks in which we enjoy our hobby of geocaching. The Maryland Geocaching Society CITO 2013 event will be held this year on November 2nd at Assateague Island State Park in Berlin, Maryland.
We will be doing a beach clean-up followed by a potluck lunch on the deck of the concessions center which contains multiple picnic tables and grills.
Additional information can also be found in the MGS Forums I hope to see everyone at the CITO!
When the hot summer temperatures begin to subside and the trees begin to transform into a plethora of colors, you know it’s the time of year to pack the camping gear and head westward to the Maryland Geocaching Society Fall Picnic. This year it will be held on October 5th at Herrington Manor State Park in Oakland, MD. The event will be held in an indoor venue so weather won’t be a factor, so come out and enjoy the beauty of Western Maryland. Be on the lookout for a night before bonfire event and be sure to make your camping reservations using Reserve America to assure you have a spot at the campground. Looking forward to seeing everyone during our yearly visit to the western part of the state!
The skies have cleared, temperatures have risen and the schools are empty. It can all just mean one thing, summer is officially here and it’s time for the MGS Summer Picnic! This year the summer picnic will be held on Saturday July 13th at Patuxent River Park in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. The MGS Summer picnic is our primary fundraising event, it will feature a silent auction with many items from popular geocaching websites, along with generous donations from our fellow members.
All proceeds go towards financing all the MGS events during the year including our most prestigious, CAM (Cache Across Maryland). We will also be announcing the results of the MGS Annual Awards voting. As always there will be lots of great food, raffle prizes and of course some new caches. I hope to see everyone at the park!
If you’ve been living under a rock, you may not know that CAM started today! For more information about CAM, please check out the CAM forums. If you’re ready to get started, the important info can be found in this post. Good luck, and HAVE FUN!
