-Geochicks far and near, even muggles!


GeoChicks #19 will gather in the Great White North. It'll be Gaylord for 2023.

For those new to GeoChicks, here's a general idea of what to expect:

-Arrive Friday night or Saturday morning.

-Meeting at 9:00AM Saturday morning in the hotel conference room to explain the day and the game.

-Breakfast on your own, only registered hotel guests have access to a deluxe hot breakfast.

-Play the game, shop, and/or cache.

-Arrive back at the hotel to fill goody bags(more on this below), eat dinner, raffle table/prize table, unstructured socializing and some fun games.

-Dinner will be a taco/salad bar. Keep your eyes to our GeoChicks fb web page for a sign up genius link a little closer to the event. Also, put this listing on your watch list so you'll be privy to all announcements.



-The weekend of March 17-19, 2023 or just join us for the day on Saturday if you're day tripping.

-Begin your adventure whenever you please. Some arrive in town as early as Thursday. Official event begins Saturday morning. 



-This year we will gather at the Comfort Inn and Suites 831 W Main St Building A, Gaylord, MI 49735

-It's a brand new hotel that opened in December of 2021, so according to Google maps satellite view... it appears we're sleeping in the middle of a grass field. Rest assured, the hotel DOES EXIST.



-You can book a room by calling Comfort Inn and Suites at (989)217.9700 

-You'll receive our block contracted rate of $xxx/night by using the word GEOCHICKS when you reserve. (We can't post the price due to Geocaching guidelines, please see related web page for more information..



-Everyone brings a small gift for each person to be put in a bag. Everyone will receive a bag of gifts compiled of all the gifts everyone has given.

-Bags can be filled Saturday evening. Gifts can be small and also don't have to be caching related.

-Examples of past gifts have been path tags, candles, homemade jewelry, sweets, stickers, encouraging notes, but really, your imagination is the limit.

-This is really just for fun, don't stress about it.

-Plan on around 40 items, or check the "will attends" number on the cache page for a more accurate count. 

-Opening the goodie bags in the evening is like opening your own personally stocked cache!



-We see a wide variety of items on the table - the sky is the limit.

-Complementary tokens for the prize table will be handed out to everyone Saturday evening.

-Please bring 1 or 2 items to place on the table to ensure everyone gets a prize.



-There is a raffle Saturday evening of donated items. These items are typically higher in value ($20+) and many are homemade.

-Tickets are SOLD after we return on Saturday up until the time the raffle numbers are drawn in the evening.

-Please let me know if you have an item we can use for this raffle. 

-100% of the monies earned go into putting on this event.
