Excited? We are! What do you do from here? Well you need to plan to be there for starters.

Start talking to family and friends spreading the word. We anticipate over 150 teams will attend this event! Plan some leave time OR swap days off if you work weekends or shiftwork. Once you have the days free.

We need you to:
Log on this event page a WILL ATTEND (once you are sure)
Your log needs to include the number of people in your team/family attending.
Whether you want a Geocoin or more than one.

Join with friends to book accommodation or borrow camping equipment. Book some sort of accommodation, once you know you can make it so you are all sorted and don’t miss out on this great Event. When you log ‘will attend’ you will automatically get any updates from us on the cache page. You don’t need to ‘watch’ the listing unless you want to see who else is planning to come to the event.

As we get closer and get a firm timetable of the daily activity sessions they will be Announced on the Event Page as we move forward.

Please note there is now a 2nd event being run on the Sunday in Busselton. When registering onsite 27th July you will receive full info for the CITO event. Hope to see you at both events. Have added a link below for you to register for the Sunday event.
