Iowa Geocaching Championships
October 6th, 2018
Brand NEW Jester Park Nature Center!!!
The event is FREE. No registration required.
Never heard of geocaching or always wanted to give it a try? Or maybe you're a diehard geocacher who is always looking for a challenge? Join us to search for 15 geocaches hidden in Jester Park for this special event.
Geocachers will be on hand to teach newcomers how to use a GPS and the ins and outs of geocaching.
Competition will start at 10:00 a.m.
Scorecards will be handed out just prior to the start. There will be 15 caches to find. Each cache will have a punch that will correspond to a number on your scorecard. There will be an individual divison and a two person division. You will have 90 minutes to find as many caches as you can. If you are late, you will be disqualified.
The individual finding the most caches the fastest will be awarded the GREAT WOODS COIN. The two person team finding the most caches the fastest will be awarded The Buser Cup. Both awards are traveling awards which must be passed on to the following year's winners. Each person's geocaching name will be placed upon the corresponding award.
Turn in your passport for a chance at prizes!
In addition, those who find at least 10 out of the 15 geocaches will earn a geocoin!
Download the free app "c:geo" or "Geocaching" on your smart phone before you arrive. We will also have GPS units available.
See you at Jester Park!!!
