  1. well done murfster, I heard of 2 groups working on big events on opposite sides of the country on top of COG's so you have your work cut out for you in 2011



    I think we were the 4th Mega in Canada


    You are the 4th and I have been lucky enough to have been to them all. Not sure how long I'll be able to say that! :)

  2. Thanks to everyone who came to to the event, to the dedicated volunteers and the sponsors. I haven't double checked the numbers but looks like 522 attendees with every province represented excepted Manitoba and a large group from Maine, many of whom just got back Geowoodstock. It was a pleasure to involved with

  3. Today, ACGA has learned that along with its partners at Fundy National Park & The Fundy Guild; that it will receive an Award of Excellence from Parks Canada for our work in developing the EcoIntegrity Geocaching Program over the last 3 years.


    The program has been able to engage people by exploring the National Park and to connect the visitors with everything that the park has to offer by being able to leverage geocaching. Along with a strong relationship and passion; ACGA & Fundy National Park have been recognized by Parks Canada with one of its most prestigious awards.


    ACGA prides itself with the strong relationships that it has built over the years in order to create new geocaching experiences by engaging with its partners such as Parks Canada & Environment Canada.


    The model used at Fundy National Park is currently being adapted by Cape Breton Highlands National Park and by Nova Scotia Parks. The model is being considered by several National Parks across Canada. ACGA will continue to lead in this area and will be looking forward to new partners to engage within Atlantic Canada.



    MS. DIANA WHALEN: Mr. Speaker, I hereby give notice that on a future day I shall move the adoption of the following resolution:


    Whereas Todd Beal of Clayton Park is the president of the Atlantic Canada Geocaching Association; and


    Whereas geocaching is an outdoor scavenger hunting game which uses a GPS receiver to hide and seek geocaches; and


    Whereas the new sport of geocaching is catching on and introducing people to a healthy lifestyle by promoting hiking and orienteering;


    Therefore be it resolved that all members of this House congratulate Todd Beal and the Atlantic Canada Geocaching Association, and wish them well in the future.


    Mr. Speaker, I request waiver of notice.


    MR. SPEAKER: There has been a request for waiver.
