Bucky is headed to Okoboji this year!
This is IGO's 11th annual Hike and Seek event. Caching will occur for 9 hours on Saturday, September 13 from 8am until 5pm. Starting at 8am, cache coordinates and descriptions in official booklets will be available at IGO Hike and Seek 2014 headquarters at the posted coordinates, the Camp Okoboji dining hall on the west side of West Okoboji. Hosts will be available to answer questions throughout the day. Participants must check back in at headquarters by 5pm
In general, points for the GeoBOJI Cache Fishin' contest will be awarded for each find based on the cache ratings, but in any case the points will be defined in the official booklet. Participants are expected to total their points in their own booklets before turning them in at the posted coordinates. After winners are verified by the hosts, prizes will be presented in the dining hall at approximately 9pm after supper.
There will be 100 new caches in addition to the 200 existing official geocaching.com caches of various types and sizes within 10 miles of HnS 2014 headquarters. Notable existing caches include active webcam caches, library caches, puzzles, and the IGL cache trail. New caches that will be part of the GeoBOJI Cache Fishin' contest may include challenge, mystery, poker run, night cache, wherigo, chirp, hybrid letterbox, and at least one cache in nearby Minnesota.
