This one has been a long time in developing, but it won't be long now. Negotiation and coordination overall has taken a couple of months and has been overseen by members of the Vancouver Island Cachers. Coins, pins, containers and swag have been contracted and are due to be received soon. A group centred in the Lower Mainland has agreed to assemble the caches and mail them out to cache owners who will place and post the caches. Interior Geocachers are planning the distribution of caches province wide and are contacting cachers to take on ownership of individual caches. Within 2 weeks, caches will be hidden and 95 new caches will be launched before the end of August (date tba). This is a lot of work!
We would like to thank the core organizing group who have worked hard over several months to put this in place. Soon we will be able to thank individual cachers who will volunteer to place the caches.
A partnership with BC Parks and an organization committed to reducing our carbon footprint is something we are proud to support. We love our activity, but it also becomes more meaningful when we work towards a worthwhile cause.
In the fall, we are planning province-wide CITO events. Please help us out in these worthwhile projects! full article
