I haven't even got the first one yet, as I haven't found any this month due to the situation :'(

I agree, lots of people are out caching. So many caches are being published!

Personally, Iíve only found one (very local) cache since lockdown restrictions were eased, and Iíve decided to postpone the publication of my new series until this is over.

So Iím glad that we have until January to complete Memory Lane  :D

New souvenir campaign!

"From June 1 through January 3, earn up to five souvenirs by logging geocaches to move forward on the game board. Log your finds by January 6, 2021 to earn souvenirs."

More info here.

Seems fairly straightforward, and not much of a challenge... but maybe that's not a bad thing, considering the circumstances.

There's still plenty of time to submit your geocaching story (or stories)!

The prizes have been confirmed... first place will win £30 GAGB store credit. That's the largest prize ever offered in a GAGB competition - double the value of the first place prize offered in 2018 and 2019.

You can buy lots with store credit - from customisable clothing, to geocoins and more.

If you've got a great geocaching story to tell, or just a memorable experience/day out, why not use up a few hours of your time at home to write it up?

If you do, you can enter it into the GAGB's story competition :)

Email your story as an attachment to by July 31st to be in with a chance of winning!  :)

Sorry to hear this - but perhaps for the best during this virus episode.

Yes, that was the main reason I was waiting and decided not to organise at the last-minute. I see several events have already been postponed, and thereís some question about those in the summer, including the Megas. Looks like the Prague Giga will be postponed too. Hopefully the situation calms down soon and we can go back to normality. But the most important thing is health.

Stay safe everyone  :)

I unfortunately haven't got round to organising this one  :'(

Hopefully there'll be another opportunity soon...  :)

I might organise an event for my geocaching 10th anniversary.

Would people be able to attend something on the evening of Friday March 27th?

Like I said, I still haven't decided, so it may not happen, but I thought I'd check to see whether people are free to see if it's worth bothering.  :)

Iím sorry to hear that she didnít enjoy the walk. Itís not the first time this point has been raised.  :(

Iím sure those at the front arenít doing this intentionally - they might not realise, it may not cross their minds, or they might think there are enough people behind them to accompany the slower walkers.

My suggestion would be to make an announcement before setting off - something along the lines of ďremember itís a group walk, so we need to stick together and give people time to catch up before moving onĒ.

Maybe we could count how many people there are before setting off, and check that everyone is at each cache location before announcing that we can move on to the next?

In addition, we could have a few volunteers staying at the back of the group for the duration of the walk.

Is anyone planning to attend? It's quite a popular event, and I've heard good things about it:

GC8CVNR, this Saturday (Nov 30th), from 11am.

I have a family memberís birthday on the 29th, so the 5th would be ideal for me personally.

I say go with the date you - and others - feel most comfortable with. If thatís the 29th, then thatís okay, if itís the 5th, thatís obviously good too :)

Geocaching HQ posted this on social media: ďWeíre happy to announce that EarthCaches are available to all geocachers in honor of International EarthCache Day on October 12th and 13th.Ē

What does this mean? Arenít EarthCaches always available? Or does it mean premium ones will be available to basic members? Or were they meant to say a souvenir is available to all geocachers?

 ??? ??? ???

Thought I'd start a thread to get the ball rolling.

Any ideas?
