Please note that you must attend this event to claim a smiley. Caching during the week and participating in CARW does not make you eligible to log.


CARW2020 will be held during The period from February 22 to March 2, 2020. Cache Finding start time is 9:00 A.M. Saturday February 22nd and the cache finding end time is Noon,  Saturday February 29, 2020.

Please DO NOT hunt for caches before the start time. The "Wrap Up" event cache will begin at Noon. on Saturday February 29. with prizes awarded at or about noon. CARW2020 is a "fun for the whole family" event with a focus on "Quality Caching".

This year's theme will be "Around the World in 7 Days" so go out there and hide some caches based on the world around us- travel, faraway lands, different cultures, adventures and misadventures in places you've been (or hope to one day visit). 

Edmonton and area geocachers hide winter friendly caches in the designated event area. Caches are submitted for review on or before the Cache Submission Deadline of Friday, February 14, 2020.

The Early Bird Deadline (CO's name goes in for a draw of a prize) is Sunday, February 2, 2020. The volunteer reviewer holds the caches for publication on the "release date", Thursday February 20, 2020. about 6:00 P.M.

Upon publication, participants prepare for the event by solving puzzles, planning their routes, and, for some, forming teams to hunt for caches. A "Kick Off" event is held on Friday evening for people to get together to make their preparations. On Saturday morning February 22 at 9:00 A.M. everyone hits the trails to hunt for caches. Other associated event caches are held during the week for people to get together, warm up, and tell tall tales about their adventures.

On Saturday afternoon, February 29, everyone heads for the Wrap Up event (this event!!)

CARW2020 is a fun-filled geocaching extravaganza that is free for all to attend! All Geocachers are welcome. Old, experienced and new-alike are all welcome to attend. Those who have never attended a CARW event before will be welcomed. There is something for everyone at our event and we look forward to making new friends as we geocache together! The cache placement radius limit for CARW2020 is smaller than previous years to accommodate the quality focus, and is off centered. The center is planned to be changed each year. This year the center is to the South East. The designated area for placing event caches is shown in the graphic below.

Centre is N 53° 19.000 W 113° 12.500 with a 26.2 mile radius.
