On May 2, 2000, President Clinton in the US ordered that the military stop scrambling GPS signals, and this instantly made consumer electronics 10 times more accurate. Dave Ulmer hid a container including the infamous "can of beans" on May 3, which was found shortly after. This became geocaching's first hide when the geocaching.com website was launched in September, 2000. Now there's a plaque there, GCCV0P, that you can visit.
Calgarian's celebrated 10 years of geocaching here on May 2, 2010. Come and join us to celebrate the beginning of the next 10 years of Geocaching.
We'll have some brunch, and door prizes available to be won.
