Geocache Description:

The Maryland Geocaching Society invites everyone to join us on Saturday, October 8th at 10:30 am for the MGS 2016 Fall Picnic at Widmeyer Park in Hancock, MD.

We would like to invite everyone who has an interest in the game of geocaching to come and join us. You do not have to be a member of the MGS to attend. No matter if you have 10 or 10,000 finds, everyone is welcome! The Town of Hancock have once again opened the doors to the MGS for the weekend. A pavilion, parking and seating have been provided by the town to the MGS free of charge. We were able to secure camping again this year as well a fire ring with firewood provided by the town! On-site camping spots will be made available for geocachers. RV's and campers will be allowed to park on the premises even though there on no electrical hookups. Pets are allowed at this park though they need to be on a leash.

Our annual cornhole tournament is held during this event. Bring your skills and challenge some of the finest players in the caching community!
