It's true! The BCGA turns 10 this year!

We have lots of things going on so stay tuned.

The first up is a GeoArt project. We are looking for 44 puzzlers from around the province to create a puzzle cache. We provide the coordinates, you provide us your html. The containers are hidden and ready to go. Contact treasurer @ to get involved.

Check out our latest newsletter HERE for more items about what the BCGA has been up to.

Introducing the Summer of Excellence!
Posted by: katcogo on Sunday, May 11, 2014 (07:12:27)

Introducing the Summer of Excellence
A creative cache is a gift from its creator to every geocacher who finds it. Whether it is a unique container, a well crafted cache page and/or puzzle, or an incredible location, these caches are pure pleasure to find. Caches that include all three are extra special.

Geocachers around the world were inspired by the recent Maker Madness events which challenged us to exercise our creativity to make awe inspiring caches for people to find.
We want to celebrate these creative caches and the geocachers who place them.

The unofficial start of summer is the May long weekend, and the unofficial end of summer is Labour Day so this is when the contest runs. There will be a small launch in Cumberland on May 18th as part of the BCGA AGM weekend

▪ Caches can be placed but may not be published before May 18, 2014
▪ To be eligible caches must be published by August 4th, 2014
▪ There are no categories – we are simply looking for the best of the best
▪ Voting will run from May 18, 2014 to September 1, 2014 at midnight.

How To Place an Excellent Cache
We will leave that to you! To create a cache to be considered for voting get your creative juices flowing.
▪ Caches may be placed in anywhere in the province of BC
▪ On your cache page title your cache B14:[name of your cache] eg B14: Cats & Dogs
▪ Place the voting banner at the bottom of your cache page and indicate the gc code and the region where the cache is placed (you will need to enable html on your cache page)
▪ Any caches that violate Groundspeak guidelines for cache placement will be disqualified
▪ For complete "how to" instructions click HERE and information HERE

Voting & Prizes
Encourage people finding your cache to vote for it on the BC Geocaching Association website. The voting banner on your cache page will link directly to your cache’s voting area. Favourite points do not count as they are only available to premium members.
▪ Prizes will be awarded to the caches with the highest votes in each region.
▪ The number of prizes for each region will depend on the number of geocachers

Following on the Mega success of Island Spirit 2012 we are once again hosting an event of Mega proportions on Vancouver Island! This time the theme is EarthCachingTM

Landsharkz and the Geological Society of America are hosting the 3rd International EarthCache Event (3IEE) on October 11, 2014 at the Cowichan Exhibition Grounds in the beautiful Cowichan Valley. We invite you to spend the weekend with us and join in the fun!

This event is expected to host 500+ geocachers from BC, Canada and around the world. The focus of the event will be EarthCaches and the geology of the region. Of course, we will also be highlighting the best of what the Cowichan Valley and Vancouver Island has to offer as a geocaching and tourist destination. Watch for news of a VIP reception where you can rub shoulders with EarthCachingTM reviewers and representatives from the GSA.

Registration will be going live very soon, so please visit the event website and log your "Will Attend" on the event listing

The Living Skies 2014 Mega Event in Rosthern, Saskatchewan is less than three months away! Many of us on the organizing committee have attended the previous WestCan events in BC and Alberta, so we would like to extend an invitation to all BCGA members and BC geocachers, and let you know about important cutoff dates that are approaching.

Friday, May 23, 2014 is the last date to order the official Mega event geocoins, geocoin event coins, and t-shirts. Get your registrations and swag orders in by then to ensure you receive the items upon attendance. If you haven’t done so yet, you visit the registration page now. If you have already registered previously, you’re welcome to purchase additional geocoins in a second order.

We have many satellite events planned to, a few of which are already published including a grain elevator tour, Batoche National Historic Site, canoeing event, and a night event. Check out our full schedule and bookmark lists on the cache page.

As far as the geocoins go, we are just finalizing the designs and colours and will have a preview to unveil to everyone in the coming days!
