Group caching can be a fun way to meet other cachers, learn from them or most importantly great ways to get out onto the trails and be social. Sometimes it helps to have many pairs of eyes looking for caches, especially those tricky ones or perhaps those that may be physically challenges, that you may not want to attempt alone for safety reasons. I have been enjoying group caching for years, anywhere from just a few friends right up to dozens of people. I’ve also made many new friends over the years because of meeting people during group caching adventures.
Groundspeak has agreed to allow group Event Caches to be listed on geocaching.com for the month of November and December as a test and only within Ontario. All other cache listing guidelines still apply though, including listing your group caching event atleast 14 days in advance, just like other events. Groundspeak will be looking at these events and logs at the end of the 2 month test period. Why not post your own group caching event or join in on an existing one. I have already listed the first one of this kind here: GHMGC – Orangeville – November 12 (Group Caching).
