As we near the end of another amazing year in geocaching, we get closer to Geocoinfest 2012. This MEGA Event will be hosted on Saturday, October 6 in beautiful Parker, Colorado.
Kicking off on Friday, October 5, the "Fire A Laser" get-together is a fun affair to see how laser engraving machines work. Following this learning session will be a welcome reception held at the hosting hotel. Leading into Saturday's main event will consist of several education sessions about geocaching. It will also host a silent auction, raffle drawings, and kids' activities before wrapping up.
Following the main event, attendees are encouraged to participate in the Geocoin Poker tournament, as well as a meet and greet gathering, door prize raffles and a geocoin trading session. Lastly, on Sunday morning attendees can break out into adventure groups based on difficultly level and close out with a group lunch.
Even as we move closer to the end of the season, geocaching is always an activity that can be done year-round. Be sure to keep active as we get ready for 2013. There were threads of the 2013 Geocoinfest being hosted in fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada. GPS City is crossing their fingers that this is true. Hope to see you next year!
