WELCOME TO THE SUMMER 2023 EDITION
"SW MI Geocachers - Kalamazoo Area CITO Event"
This event is scheduled to be held on Saturday, September 23, 2023, from 10:00am until 11:00am; but may be shorter or longer, depending on how much work is involved and how many folks show up to help out.
Traditionally, CITO Souvenir opportunity events have been held twice a year for one week each. However, in 2019, Geocaching HQ introduced the CITO "Season", which extended the time frame for obtaining souvenirs for each "Season" from just one week, to numerous months.
This year, Cache In Trash Out® (CITO) souvenir opportunities will be held during the following dates:
CITO 2023 - Season 1
March 1 - May 31, 2023
CITO 2023 - Season 2
September 1 - November 30, 2023
Please plan to join us on Saturday, September 23, 2023, from 10:00am until 11:00am (or until done) at the posted coordinates (US-131 & "D" Ave., Exit 44).
This is a family friendly CITO event, as we will not be walking along the highway, so children are welcome to attend, but please keep an eye on the youngsters for their safety.
Per MDOT requirements, I will spend a couple of minutes going over a few safety guidelines prior to the event.
There will be safety vests, trash bags, disposable gloves, and some trash grabbers provided; however, you're more than welcome to bring your own gloves, grabbers, etc., if you wish.
Prior to participation, the MDOT Adopt-A-Highway Rules require that all participants:
1) Watch MDOT's official Safety Video, available HERE;
2) Read MDOT's official Safety Brochure, available HERE;
3) Sign-in on a participant sheet that must be completed and returned to MDOT for statistical purposes.
(No hints available.)
