Remember - for every vote you make for a Blitz cache your name is entered in a draw for a great voter's prize.

BCGA Gold COuntry

BCGA Went to Gold Country

We had a great time at the Gold Country GeoPoker Run launch event in Merritt on June 29. It was great to meet and chat to so many geocachers from all over BC and elsewhere. Fonty Family, KnL_Caching and katcogo were the BCGA directors manning the booth. Special thanks to recently retired director anakarose along with Lord Ed, Maya Bee, L from KnL_Caching and AlCoGo for their help, we appreciate their assistance.

B - I - G NEWS!

The long awaited new BCGA coin is getting much closer to release. We are working on the final technical drawings before getting mint samples. The design is one submitted by Danica Stewart (whiskeybiz) and features a sunrise on one side and a full moon in a night sky on the other. We feel this symbolizes the anticipation for adventure that meets each bright new day and the sense of wonder that we are just a small speck in a giant universe.

There are some very special surprises in store with this edition so stay tuned. You won't want to miss out!
