Come celebrate the Fifth Annual ASP GeoBash in the scenic Red House section of Allegany State Park. The event this year will be held at Camp Allegany, Just off Rt ASP2.
You can plan on a FREE, fun, family-oriented gathering that will include activities for geocachers of all ages. The three day event will offer everything from games, drawings, and educational seminars to lots of caches of all types and terrain. We're planning a Travel Bug Race, a Dance Saturday night with D.J., and free WiFi on the grounds of the 'Bash.
The park offers campgrounds, cabins and cottages or accommodations are available in two nearby towns, Salamanca, NY or Bradford, PA so you can make plans to stay the weekend or longer.
The ASPGB Website is now ONLINE!
Information on everything from Food, Schedule, Activities, our Store, Maps, Camping/Hotel links and our Forum can be found at www.aspgeobash.org. Check back there often, as details are finalized there will be frequent updates. And make plans to join us again this year at the 'Bash!
This Year's Attendance: 1140

The Travel Bugs are beginning to line up for the big T.B. Race! Enter your new trackable by dropping it in this event and then enter it in the race at the Welcome Center when you sign in. The one with the most miles next year is the winner!
Here is the 2010 GeoBash Cache Loop. Nearly 100 permanent caches starting at Camp Allegany, down ASP1 to Bradford, Pa. Then around the loop and back to the Quaker area of ASP along ASP3. These don't include the new caches being released just prior to the event
Last year we brought you internet, this year we've brought Mass Transit to Allegany State Park! Limited parking including handicap sites are available at Camp Allegany. Plenty of parking is available at Red House Beach Area (Waypoint - Overflow Parking Area) with only a healthy walk and a cache on the way, over the now pedestrian bridge to intersection of Park Road and ASP 2 (Waypoint - Bash Bus Stop). Signs will be posted. Beehunter Trail campers can leave their vehicles at their cabins and walk the paved path to the shuttle pick up site. The Bash Bus will be running a continuous circle from Camp Allegany to the intersection of Park Road and ASP 2. The bus hours are Friday 5 PM to 10:30 PM and Saturday 8 AM to 11:30 PM. The drivers are instructed to also pick up guests "flagging them down" along the route if they have room aboard - the bike path runs parallel with the shuttle route for those who might be caching along the way.
We're proud to welcome Groundspeak Lackey MissJenn to our 10 Year! and ASP GeoBash's fifth anniversary celebration.
