Another GeoCaching story in the news -- from the Satuday Mar.25th Edmonton Journal. Not a local story.

Geocaching catching on in family resorts
Educational treasure hunt teaches compass, GPS reading
Elaine Glusac
For CanWest News Service

TUCSON, Ariz. - Geocaching, the high-tech treasure hunt, isn't for you if you're bad with numbers. Consider this task: "Bear 250 degrees until reaching a saguaro cactus with no arms and a gila woodpecker hole 30 degrees off the trail." A 10-minute blitz tutorial in compass- and GPS-reading later, my son, our guide and I hit the Arizona trail.

"Mom, check this out!" yells six-year-old Seth, reaching around the base of the armless cactus for a Ziploc treasure packet planted there strictly for our discovery. "A rocket!"

Written by Admin   
Monday, 20 March 2006

Over the last week, I've received inquiries to post 'news' that may be relevant to Edmonton area GeoCachers, and an offer to exchange banners with another Canadian GeoCaching group.

This seemed like a good it's done. Away Games & Events is the Articles section (linked here, in the Main Menu under Articles) that contains things from other GeoCaching (and outdoor activity) groups. New items will also appear in the News banner at the top of the front page.

Criteria for submission:
1) must be for a non-profit organization. Does not have to be registered non-profit, but NOT a commercial venture. We do sell advertising to support our costs Wink

2) of interest to GeoCachers. This is subjective and the management makes the call.

3) submitted in electronic form. Images as low-rez .jpg files (preferably hosted elsewhere). We will not proofread nor correct please proof your copy prior to submission.

Email submissions to:
