Geocaching is a worldwide adventure sport which utilizes GPS devices to hide and seek hidden containers called geocaches. (Learn more about geocaching) To get started geocaching, all you need is a GPS receiver and a geocache location.

It's time to take this show on the road!
Based on the popular television series of the 1990s, this event will make us all into daring detectives, stealthy sleuths and ingenious impresarios! Over the last couple of years, this event has been quite popular in the Winnipeg area. It's time to bring this to the WestMan region of the province.
Manitoba has a wealth of Mystery (or Unknown) geocaches.
The MBGA hosted a pub night last January and encouraged cachers to set caching resolutions ("cachelutions") to complete over the course of the year. Many goals were set, and a good number of them were met.
Below I would like to introduce our new 10th Anniversary Logo! We felt we needed to have a fresh brand look going into our 10th year and this is it! We will be building a bit more on this in the months ahead.
Join us at Snow Trek 2015!
