A chorus of voices cheered this month’s Geocacher of the Month to victory. All the nominees represented dedicated geocachers across three continents. Each will receive special recognition for their contribution to the global adventure of geocaching.
Before naming the Geocacher of the Month, Geocaching HQ reviews community input and blog comments. Each comment is read. After tallying the sentiment and reading the comments, Old Navy. has been officially named the Geocacher of the Month for August 2013.
One geocacher who commented wrote, “My vote is for Old Navy for Geocacher of the Month! He has done so much for the Geocaching community and goes above and beyond, whether it’s hiding quality caches or event planning as part of Northern New Jersey Cachers (NNJC) or working with local municipalities and parks to introduce geocaching to so many people. As Geocaching continues to grow in leaps and bounds over the years Old Navy has been there in Geo101 introduction classes to bring new people into the sport.”
Old Navy will receive the earned, never for sale, collector’s edition Geocacher of the Month Geocoin, along with a Geocacher of the Month hat and a certificate acknowledging his contribution, signed by two of the founders of Geocaching.com. See a list of all the Geocachers of the Month here.
