GPS City Canada (http://www.gpscity.ca) is pleased to announce their sponsorship of the annual Eco-Friendly Spring Cache In Trash Out (CITO) event. Held in beautiful Edworthy Park in Calgary, AB Canada, many of the local Geocaching community will be attending. GPS City Canada will be supplying the Calgary group with plenty of Geocaching swag, and for one lucky cacher a Garmin Nuvi 550 crossover GPS navigator in appreciation of their environmentally friendly activities!
The goal of the event is to bring local cachers together to network, and clean up local parks enjoyed by all. As the cachers search for hidden geocaches, they pick up garbage left behind by others. At the end of the hunt, a variety of prizes and a BBQ await the participants.

Geocaching is a GPS game played by GPS enthusiasts world wide. In most cases, a waterproof container is hidden somewhere in the world, containing lots of trinkets and traceable items. The co-ordinates of the cache are placed on the Geocaching website for other members in the area to access. A player (cacher) then goes to the official geocaching website and downloads/enters the GPS co-ordinates, and some helpful hints, for the placed cache. When a cacher finds an geocache they will log their find on the geocaching website. For official rules on geocaching and to get started visit http://www.geocaching.com .
