Welcome to the homepage of the Maryland Geocaching Society!
Thank you to everyone who joined us for the first of what we hope might be an annual MGS Geocaching Trivia event. We’re grateful to the good folks at GxProxy for donating a veritable treasure trove of geocaching merchandise to award as prizes for the event. Thanks also to past president deepdish23 for supplying the questions and emceeing the competition. If you weren’t able to attend, we will be posting the questions on the forum to give you an idea what you missed.
Our next and final MGS event of the year will be the 2017 MGS Holiday Swap held on Saturday, December 2nd, from Noon to 3pm at the VFW Post 160 in Glen Burnie, MD. The annual Holiday Swap is one of our most fun and well-attended events of the year, so if you’ve never attended one, we hope you’ll give this year’s a try. You do not need to participate in the gift exchance to attend. If you haven’t already done so, please log your will-attend and post your potluck food items on the Holiday Swap Food List thread.
We’ve been given an *estimated* delivery date of November 22nd for the 2017 CAM geocoins. If we do receive them in time, we will make them available for pick-up at the Holiday Swap. When the coins arrive, everyone who paid for shipping will be given the option of picking up their coins at the event instead. We can refund the shipping fees at the event.
MGS OFFICER NOMINATIONS
The selection process for the 2018 MGS Core Officers has begun. If you would like to run, or if you wish to nominate someone else (with their permission), please post your nomination in this forum thread. The complete list of nominees will be published on December 1, at which point the official voting will begin. Serving as one of the Core Officers is an excellent way of giving back to the Maryland geocaching community, and I heartily encourage everyone to consider taking an active role in the future of the MGS by running for office. We need you!
