Geocache Description:

Join the Metro Van Geocachers for an evening of learning, sharing, and celebrating 10 years of EarthCaching. All are welcome, but please post the number in your party in your "Will Attend" log to help us plan this indoor event.

10 Years of EarthCachingJanuary 10th, 2014 marks 10 years since the placement of the very first EarthCache, on a headland 3 hrs south of Sydney, Australia by Geoaware and his two daughters.

10 years later, there are 17,558 EarthCaches placed around the world helping geocachers better understand the planet and the processes that form and shape it.

In celebration of the 10th anniversary of EarthCaching, Metro Vancouver Geocaching is putting on an event to learn, share, and celebrate together as only us geocachers can do.  The format of the evening will begin with a 30 minute crash-course on how to find and how to create EarthCaches, with a subsequent time of refreshment and sharing of stories, trackables, and general camraderie.

Where: Best Western Plus Coquitlam Inn Convention Centre, 319 N Rd, Coquitlam
When: 7:30pm to 9:30pm Friday, January 10, 2014
What to Bring: Pen & paper if you'd like to take any notes, trackables to trade & discover, and your best EarthCaching stories
Additional Information: Please consider bringing a small cash donation to assist with the costs of the room & hot beverages

Cachers attending the training session at the begining will be able to obtain the "GeoRoadBook" containing 50 EarthCaches from Squamish to Hope and many fascinating points in between.


The format of the evening will be:

  • 7:30 - 7:40  Check-in & refreshments
  • 7:40 - 8:15  "EarthCaches - Finding and Creating Them"
