Geocache Description:

Join us for the GPS Adventure Maze Event! Staffed.

We'll have members of the group out at the event most every day, feel free to log this event, what ever day you were able to make it, since our members are staffing this event. Below is just one of the special days I tried to get a new event listed for this, but it was under the two week guideline. We will have very special guest(s) here at the GPS Maze event on Sunday, Feb 19th 2012 from 4pm to 5 pm. -------------------------------------------------- U.S. Senator Visits the GPS Adventures Maze in Wichita -------------------------------------------------- Join U.S. Senator Pat Roberts of Kansas at the GPS Adventurers Maze Exhibit in Wichita on Sunday, February 19th. Sen. Roberts has championed the importance of GPS technology for aviation, precision agriculture, and recreation (geocaching, anyone?). The Senator is scheduled to tour the exhibit beginning at 4:15 followed by an event in the Exploration Place auditorium. All geocachers who visit and log and "Attended" for the GPS Adventures Maze earn a unique icon on their Geocaching.com profile – but how many can say they've also met a U.S. Senator at the maze? Attend the event to show the geocaching community's commitment to free and accurate recreational GPS use.
