This week July 17-July 23, work with your crew to collect 30 gold coins on the Friend League and earn the first map piece souvenir. You’ll be one step closer to finding the lost treasure of Mary Hyde!

The more friends you have on Geocaching.com, the easier it will be to keep sailing on…Don’t have many geocaching friends? Share your username in the comment section of this blog post. If others follow suit, you can add each other on Geocaching.com and make friends all over the world!

To earn the souvenir you must contribute at least 5 gold coins towards your crew’s total. The Friend League will refresh every Monday at 5am (PST), noon (UTC). This week’s souvenir will be awarded to your profile on Wednesday July 26, 2017.

  • Find and log a geocache = 5 gold coins.
  • Find and log a geocache with 10 or more Favorite points = 10 gold coins.
  • Attend and log an event cache = 10 gold coins.
