2010 CAM Committee Appointed

The Maryland Geocaching Society announces the formation of its 2010 Cache Across Maryland committee.  This year’s seven committee members are: CoupleoCachers, DudleyGrunt, EagleBlazer, Shady, WVKiwi, Team Yinyang, and WeTheMillers.  The committee is responsible for planning and executing every aspect of what has become the Maryland Geocaching Society’s most popular event.

“America in Minature”

The brainchild of Laura & Joe Tinker (Outsid4evr), the ‘Cache Across Maryland’ is a six-week long event that showcases the history and natural beauty of Maryland by placing geocaches all across the state.  Each cache contains part of a code, that when put together, will lead finders to the final event, a picnic and celebration.

2010 CAM Committee

“I think we had a great session”  said DudleyGrunt when asked how the first meeting went.  MGS Vice President and committee member Shady said, “We have a terrific group of dedicated members from different areas of the state and varying levels of experience, the 2010 CAM may be the best one yet”.   The Cache Across Maryland has been held every year since its inception in 2004.   Keep your eyes on the forums, CAM 2010 is coming!  Are you ready?
