    We are trying to start a regional geocaching group in our area. In the current newsletter you mention 5 regions in Ontario, but I can’t seem to find them? I found this “placeholder for Regions Information” form so decided to start here.

    We are in Mid-Western Ontario, which includes Grey and Bruce counties and the magnificent Bruce Peninsula. We’re not sure exactly what the boundaries of “mid-west” include and we are in the process of trying to determine that. Various media, newspapers, radio etc. refer to this area as Midwestern Ontario, but we are having some difficulty defining the exact region?

    There are many active caches and cachers in this area and we hope to enable a local group to organize outings, events, social gatherings etc. COG and SWOG are not too far away, but most of their events are quite some distance from here. So we are thinking of forming MWOG – Mid West Ontario Geocaching and are trying to determine if this is perhaps already a Region of the OGA?

    We have developed a temporary website under the generic name of Discover Ontario Geocaching for now, but would likely chance the name to MWOG to follow the geographical regions such as COG, SWOG, NOG, etc.

    Any and all input and advice regarding this would me much appreciated!
