ACTIVITIES

Going Caching 2018 Pre-Event T-Shirt Puzzle with $100 FTF Prize
Get your hands on this year's pre-event t-shirt and solve a puzzle which leads to a loggable geocache hidden somewhere in Rome, Georgia. Only puzzlers who solve the shirt will know what to do and where to look for the final clues during Going Caching 2018. The final clues, the geocache and the $100 FTF prize can be found beginning Saturday, October 6th. Early arriving cachers have no advantage on this one.

Mystery Match Button Contest (Friday evening through Saturday)
A Mystery Match Button is included in every paid registration package. Wear your button while keeping an eye out for another one just like it. After meeting up with your match, both of you come to the Going Caching Store Tent to spin the prize wheel and see what you each win!

Victorian Trading Card Adventure (Friday through Saturday)
Assemble puzzle pieces in your trading card packs to obtain the clues you need to solve ghostly mysteries in downtown Rome.

Geocaching Haunted Observations and Supernatural Tales (G.H.O.S.T.) Challenge (Friday through Saturday)
Obtain your passport to the paranormal and depart on the G.H.O.S.T. Challenge where you visit brand new geocaches and other active hotspots. You choose which geocaches and adventures to find. Accumulate enough points to earn a trackable G.H.O.S.T. Challenge geocoin. Passports will be included in each paid registration package and will be available separately in our Going Caching Store. One passport per individual.
