Geocache Description:

The lost treasure of Mary Hyde

Avast ye! Join us for a swashbuckling geocaching adventure through daring feats and stormy seas. Make yer way through a four week souvenir journey to find the lost treasure of Mary Hyde. Up to six digital souvenir moments are up for grabs, and on is something new to be had…

  • July 15-16 – Build your crew by attending or hosting an event and earn a souvenir. The more friends you have on, the easier it will be to keep sailing on…
  • July 17 – 23 – Though the treasure may seem far away, if you work together you’ll earn the first map piece one day.
  • July 24 – 30 – Don’t be afraid to take the lead, to earn the next map piece you already have everything that you need.
  • July 31 – August 6 – When you work with a crew, earning the third map piece becomes easier to do.
  • August 7 – 13 – Challenge yourself to earn the last piece, or else the search for lost treasure will never cease.


To kick off this adventure, we are going to have a GRAND day for young and old

We will assemble the ARRRR crew for a first-up ARRRR breakfast at Suncoast Casino at the ARRRR Spur.  Remember brekkies CLOSE at 11:00 se we suggest that the ARRRR crew arrive timeously (not like pirates...) to place their ARRRR orders by 10:30
