Maryland Geocaching Society Holiday Swap 2013

Maryland Geocaching Society Holiday Swap 2013

It’s hard to believe we’re already in the last quarter of the year, as the amount of daylight dwindles and the leaves begin to cover our lawns, it’s a reminder the end of the year is close-by. The goblins and ghouls have already visited to get their fill of sugar coated goodies and Tom will be soon visiting riding his platter to our tables. It’s also become a tradition for the MGS to close the year with the Maryland Geocaching Society Holiday Swap. This year it will be held at the Community Association Town Hall in Arbutus, Maryland on Saturday December 7th at 1 PM. There will be a potluck lunch/dinner followed by a gift exchange with an MGS twist. So please come out and join us to end another great event year for the MGS and to share some holiday cheer with your fellow geocachers.

Maryland Geocaching Society Fall Picnic 2013

Maryland Geocaching Society Fall Picnic 2013

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!894840_10200693078920186_795489941_o (1)

Maryland Geocaching Society Summer Picnic 2013

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!
