|Join us on June 29th for a Gold Country experience beyond your wildest dreams. There will be entertainment, fun and games, geocaching trails, local history & culture of the Gold Country area – all planned for your enjoyment!
WestCan is a Canadian legacy series of mega events to support rural economic development in Western Canada. The Gold Country Geocaching Poker Run is proud to carry the torch as WestCan3 following on the heels of the success of Best of the Bad (WestCan1) and Island Spirit 2012 (WestCan2). The Gold Country Geocaching Poker Run (WestCan3) will be a historic gold rush themed event - and will further build on the success of WestCan2.
