Submit your CAM 2019 completion!

Submit your CAM 2019 completion here! This will allow us to start printing certificates and make the list for CAM coins. The deadline for completion of this form is 2 May! Any delay and there is no guarantee you will have a certificate at the picnic. You will get an email response of your answers, if you don’t get an email response contact littleblkdog via email.

Submitting your completion is the most important CAM step! (Aside from finding 10 CAM 2019 geocaches AND attending the picnic! 

After you record your completion, don’t forget to log your “will attend!”

And don’t forget to let us know what you are bringing to the potluck picnic!

And before you ask, the decoder will be posted approximately a week before the picnic. So stay tuned!

The holidays are coming (and winter too!)

Along with the hectic holidays and a few opportunities to get in some more geocaching comes one of MGS’ most popular events: The Holiday Swap! So come out and join us for food, fun, and a lively gift exchange. We will be at VFW Post 160 again this year. The event page is here along with the rules for the optional but extremely entertaining gift exchange. And of course you can register your potluck contributions here.
