Geocache Description:

As of 9/30/14, there are 27 coins still available!

"Go For The Gold" in beautiful Grant County, Oregon! The kickoff for the new 2014 John Day-Canyon City Trackable Geocoin will be at 9AM, June 21st at the Canyon City Community Hall.

We'll have 20 physical caches (18 of them new) in Canyon City and John Day, each with a code word.  Find code words in 15 of the caches to claim the 2014 Geocoin (one per family). There will only be 100 coins minted! 

Entry forms will be handed out at the kickoff, and will also be available after the event 24/7 outside the Grant County Chamber of Commerce, 301 West Main in John Day (N44 24.993, W118 57.273). The form will also be posted on this cache page after the event.

BONUS!: KICKOFF DAY ONLY! The first 20 (one per family) to find all 20 code words will receive a little something extra!!! You'll just have to come to the kickoff and find out what it is, but it will be WELL WORTH THE EFFORT.

All of the new caches are scheduled to be published the morning of the event. We will not have a GPX file available at the event.

After the kickoff event is completed, the Geocoin can be claimed at the following locations:

Mon-Fri 9AM-12PM and 2PM-4PM: Grant County Chamber of Commerce, 301 West Main Street, John Day (N44 24.993, W118 57.273).

Saturday 8AM-6PM & Sunday 10AM-3PM: True Value Hardware, 161 East Main Street, John Day (N44 24.968, W118 57.066).

Geocoins must be picked up in person, we are unable to mail coins.

Please log a "Will Attend" so we know how many folks will be coming or "Write A Note" if you are not able to attend the Kickoff but expect to complete the requirements after the event during the summer.

Hopefully you're making a day of it and can also attend the Canyon City-John Day Geocoin Post-Kickoff Event.
