Announcing the February Featured Geocacher of the Month

Many people know February’s Featured Geocacher of the Month for his ability to entertain as a Comedy Magician. To Vancouver geocachers, as well as many other geocachers, magicman65 is recognized for his ability to engage the geocaching community with creativity, commitment, involvement, stewardship, and encouragement.

Congratulations to magicman65 for pulling in a magical 65 votes to be nominated as the February Featured Geocacher of the Month. We greatly appreciate your positive contribution to the geocaching community.

February Featured Geocacher of the Month, magicman65

Magicman65 is the Vice President of the BC Geocaching Association as well as an active member of the Mid Island Geocaching Association and the Vancouver Island Geocaching Association. In addition, Magicman65 teaches geocaching and hides many creative caches.

According to one geocacher, “magicman65 sets an example to other cachers- he carries a knapsack with him filled with logbooks, plastic baggies, and swag.  When he comes across a cache that needs maintenance, he will fix it right there on the spot and then he will send a private message to the cache owner informing him/her that the cache is fixed, saving others a trip.”

Magicman65 will receive a collector’s edition Featured Geocacher of the Month Geocoin, along with a Geocacher of the Month hat and certificate acknowledging his contributions signed by two of the founders of Geocaching.com. Those nominees not chosen as the featured Geocacher of the Month receive a gift of appreciation from Groundspeak. See a list of all the featured Geocachers of the Month here. The geocaching community is encouraged to renominate those who have yet to be honored as featured Geocacher of the Month.
