Meet fellow geocachers and learn all about the world of Geocaching from experienced geocachers on Thursday, February 16, beginning at 6:45 p.m., at the BP Energy Center, 900 E. Benson Blvd. (Click for map.)
Tonight's speaker is a seasoned Geocacher with over 2,100 finds and 95 hides. He is our local Platinum EarthCache Master and is currently serving you as President of the Board of Directors for GeocacheAlaska! Inc. He even knows a thing or two about signs and poodles. We again welcome NorthWes to the podium, where he will be delivering a fast-paced Geocaching presentation that is perfect for both new and old Geocachers. I bet we get a good geocaching story or two out of him as well!
Some of the topics to be discussed at this EduVent include:
- What is Geocaching?
- How to get Started
- Geocaching Gear and GPSrs
- Finding Geocaches
- In the Field - After the Find
- Logging Geocaches Online
- What is GeocacheAlaska!?
This event will be carried live over the internet via WebEx! Contact us immediately if you can host a remote site session. GeocacheAlaska members who cannot attend an event site can link in remotely. Contact us for instructions on how to do so.

If we need to make any announcements about this event, all registered attendees will automatically receive an email copy of those announcements via the email you have registered with your Geocaching.com account. Adding a "Will Attend" log to this page will also assure enough hard copy handouts are printed for the event participants.
Please arrive on time so upfront administrative details can be handled and announcements made, allowing the course content to start precisely at 7:00 p.m. (or 1900hrs if you prefer). Also, please bring your favorite nonalcoholic beverage and a 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 if you would like to make a donation. The GeAK Store will be available onsite immediately after the presentation. You may purchase items from our line of GxProxy gear as well as official GroundSpeak merchandise.
