Geocache Description:

Meet fellow cachers and learn about Geoswag FUNdamentals from experienced cachers on Thursday, June 10, at 6:45 p.m., at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church, 357 Pioneer Drive, Valdez.  Many thanks to StoweAK for hosting this event!


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.
