Are you ready for an EPIC coin quest?!

The GeoLeap Coin Challenge is ON! Buckle up because 30 brand new caches have been published around the GeoLeap 2024 event site.  Each cache holds a key for a chance to win a super cool GeoLeap coin that is NOT available for purchase!

Here's your chance to grab glory (and geo-swag!):

  • Grab your Coin Challenge Passport: The passport is available here and on the GeoLeap2024 website. Print it online or snag one at the "Prepare to Leap (GCAJNFC) event.
     
  • Find at least 25 of the 30 Geocaches between February 22nd and 29th. A bookmark list of the 30 caches is available here.
     
  • When you find a cache, punch your Passport in the spot corresponding to the correct geocache. Each cache holds a special punch to mark your qualifying find.
     
  • Dash to the GeoLeap Mega Event on February 29th. Hand over your completed Passport between 4:00 – 6:00 pm and enter a drawing to win your very own coin!

    Fine print: Cachers who submit a completed passport will be entered into a drawing to win one of the GeoLeap coins.  Only one passport per person can be used to enter the drawing.  The drawing to award coins will begin shortly after 6:00 pm, and a list of winners will be posted.  Winners will need to pick up their coin before 7:00 pm.  Unclaimed coins will be awarded to other qualifying cachers during a live drawing beginning at 7:15 pm.

This is your chance to join the geocoin collecting legends, score an awesome coin for the first Mega event on Feb 29th in North America, and celebrate Leap Day in style! Get ready to leap into adventure!
