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!
Spring is fast approaching and that can only mean one thing, the Maryland Geocaching Society’s marquee event of the year, Cache Across Maryland (CAM). The countdown continues until Saturday, March 16th at around 0600, at that time the CAM caches will be released and the Geocaching March Madness begins! More information can be found in the MGS Forums. Geocachers will have until Sunday May 5th to complete the statewide trek and find all ten CAM caches, expect to travel well over 1,000 miles in pursuit of your CAM smileys. If you want to dress in style during your journey, custom CAM Gear is available in our MGS Store. Hope to see everyone on the trails beginning March 16th!
Election time is underway! Be sure to visit the voting thread in the forums for instructions on how to cast your vote. Good luck to everyone participating this year!
