As mentioned in last month’s OGA newsletter, Ontario has been chosen for the months of November and December as the test area for organized group geocaching hunts to be listed as event caches. The first ever such event took place on November 12 in Orangeville GHMGC – Orangeville – November 12 (Group Caching). It saw 34 eager cachers come out for a fun day of caching and socializing. We found a total of 35 caches of all different types. The GHMGC has had regular monthly group cache hunts for over two years now, which are always organized through the Facebook group, however listing them as events on geocaching.com certainly makes sense as it allows for more people to find out about the group cache hunts and to join in on the fun.
The other group caching event for November was organized by the Saturday Morning Caching Club on November 19 The geoMob goes forth….. It started off with breakfast in the Ottawa area and then headed out to Kingston for another fun filled day of caching.
The following is a list of group caching events listed so far for the month of December.
