2018 MGS Fall CITO

2018 MGS Fall CITO

Come on out and join MGS for the Fall CITO at Patuxent River Park on September 22 from 10am to 12pm! We will be working with the staff to pick-up trash, possibly do some light trail maintenance or remove invasive species. And if you haven’t earned the souvenir, you will at this event. This park is also home to a Find Your Chesapeake Geotour geocache. With the CITO over at 12, you might want to bring your kayak and enjoy the Patuxent River just North of Jug Bay. Just be sure that you DO NOT Release the Kraken!

2018 CAM coin distribution

2018 CAM coin distribution

2018 CAM coins have been received and were distributed to attendees of the Summer Picnic. CAM coins will also be distributed at the following events during the month of August:

FTIC – August 2018
FPC – National Lighthouse Day
International Geocaching Day 2018 AM Edition
3rd Tuesdays in Eldersburg August 2018 Edition

We will also be mailing coins out to people who don’t attend those events. You don’t need to request mailing, we will hold coins until the last event. If you have already provided your address we will use that address or reach out to get an address. While we have a strong desire to save on the postage, there is also definitely a desire to get the coin in your hand sooner rather than waiting for some event in the future because we still have a large number of coins on hand that haven’t been picked up from 2017 which we will be mailing with the 2018 coins. Also an update for the 2017 CAM coins has been posted here.
