Watch this video to take a step inside the 2011 Geocaching Block Party. Nearly two thousand geocachers traveled from around the world to attend the event. Sunshine welcomed fans of the high-tech GPS-based treasure hunt to a plaza outside the future Groundspeak Headquarters.

Attendees earned this special souvenir

Block Party  attendees explored the neighborhood around Groundspeak Headquarters by completing “Fremont Challenges”, socialized while filling out their Geocacher Bingo sheets, plunged Groundspeak Lackeys and Reviewers into a dunk tank, and pinned the antenna on signal. Geocachers could also test their skill at beginner, intermediate and advanced geocaching courses.

Come visit us next year for even more surprises! The best advice is to plan ahead. The Geocaching Block Party 2012 occurs on International Geocaching Day each year. It’s the third Saturday of August. Next year all the Lackeys would love to see you at the Geocaching Block Party on August 18, 2012.
