Geocache Description:

Meet fellow cachers and learn about geocaching FUNdamentals from experienced cachers on Tuesday, March 23, beginning at 7:00 p.m., at the BP Energy Center, 900 E. Benson Blvd. (click for map).

Please bring your favorite nonalcoholic beverage and dessert to share with your fellow cachers.

Participate in this first of a kind Alaskan geocaching educational event!  The event will be hosted in Anchorage and transmitted to remote locations in Homer, Wasilla and Soldotna via WebEx.  Place a watch on this event page to stay appraised of the final details.  Note: you must attend at one of the four locations to log your attendance as Groundspeak defines an Event as a physical gathering of two or more cachers.

Ladybug Kids will present Geocaching FUNdamentals in a fast-paced PowerPoint presentation.  Course content will not exceed thirty minutes with time at the end for questions and answers.  The presentation will cover:

  1. What is "adequate permission" for placing a cache?
  2. Logging your cache experience (it's not always Found It! or Didn't Find It!)
  3. Suggested log content
  4. Ever wonder what FTFACH means (and other acronyms)?
  5. The search: Keep muggles at bay and maintain the hide integrity
  6. Where to go for more information
