Geocache Description:

Meet fellow cachers and learn about Geoswag FUNdamentals from experienced cachers on Thursday, June 10, beginning at 6:45 p.m., at the BP Energy Center, 900 E. Benson Blvd. (Click for map.)

Please arrive on time so upfront administrative details can be handled and announcements made, allowing the course content to start at 7:00 p.m. Adding a "Will Attend" log to this page will assure enough hard copy handouts are printed for the event participants. Also, please bring your favorite nonalcoholic beverage and favorite dessert to share with your fellow cachers.

There will be a free-will offering cache container at the event to help defray the costs of hosting these FUNdamentals events.

Learn about what you will find in a cache, ranging from swag (trade items) to travelers (geocoins, travel bugs), to signature items, and what to do with them.  The event will be hosted in Anchorage and transmitted to remote locations in Homer, Wasilla, Valdez, and Soldotna via WebEx.  Please place a watch on this event page to stay appraised of the final details.  If you would like to host this presentation elsewhere in Alaska, please contact Education Committee Chair, Paul Miller.
