Hopefully, all of you were able to find a cache or attend an event on August 20th.  If you did you will find a new souvenir amongst your statistics!!!  Congratulations!!!

MEGA Event News !!!

We are now less than 2 weeks away from the 14th Annual GCHR Picnic
This is our MEGA (for us nice folks in the Hampton Roads area)!!!
There has been a major change for the Friday Night Event - you know, the one where you can pick up all your stuff and then hang around and talk with people - - and then go out to dinner with friends!!!

Next Weekend
So far this summer, if you were in the right place and found the right thing at the right time - you have, in your statistics, two really nice new shiny souvenirs.  It is all part of's Mission GC.  

Part 1: This souvenir was awarded for finding a cache with 10 or more favorite points on the weekend of July 30/31.

Part 2: This souvenir was awarded for finding a multi-cache on the weekend of August 13/14.

So, part 3 of this entertaining series will be this weekend (August 27/28).

Hopefully, you have either already received the coded message containing the clue to this weekend's mission, or, someone has told you how to go about earning it.

If you have not received any help - fear not - just click here to be taken to the clues you need to decode to earn the next souvenir.  Good Luck!

Still having trouble???  Try investigating something called flag semaphore... or better yet....

  Till next time!!!

Stay Safe & Keep Caching!!!
