Geocaching Organizations in South and Southeast.

Recommended Posts

This topic is to let you know about the regional geocaching organizations near you. These groups sponsor event caches and online forums where geocachers in the same area can get to know each other and share information. Geocaching organizations play a pivotal role in maintaining good relations with the land managers for the parks and forests where we play our game. Getting involved in your local group is a great way to make new friends and find answers to questions about the local caching scene.

 

It is up to representatives of the organizations to maintain this thread as a list of links to the Geocaching Groups in South and Southeast. Please feel free to write a brief post about your geocaching group, giving its name, the area where most of its members live, and a link to the group's website, forums or mailing list. If your information changes later on, post a follow-up post.

 

Please do not use this pinned topic to promote individual events or initiatives that your group is undertaking. You can start separate topics for those. The moderating team may split out off topic posts into their own threads, or delete

 

Finally, please note that this thread is not an endorsement by Groundspeak of any organization. It's just a convenient list of links.

The

Jackson Area Geocachers, JAG, is centrally located in the West Tennessee area with cachers throughout the state. We are mainly a "Meet and Eat" group that meets together on a regular basis, usually once per month. We do a little talking about caching, catching up with one another, maybe grab a few new caches nearby, and in-between times we meet up on the JAG Forums to keep up with one another and share experiences and ideas. No officers, no bylaws, no voting! Just a place where friends meet!

If this sounds like something you would like to be a part of, visit the site and join us! Registered members have full access to a wealth of information and ideas. I hope to see you there!!!

The Middle Tennessee Geocachers Club welcomes all adventure seeking geocachers to join in on the fun of geocaching in Middle Tennessee.

 

We invite you to join our club and be a part of the diverse group of fellow cachers. We meet approximately every 6 weeks to discuss the latest happenings in the caching world and to learn more about the sport. We welcome members and visitors to come to our meetings, learn valuable information from fellow cachers, and have fun making new friends. As the first geocaching club in Tennessee, and the second oldest Geocaching organization in the country, we have provided leadership in negotiating the original statewide agreements with the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, the Tennessee Department of Conservation, TVA, The Nature Conservancy and Tennessee State Parks, and we continue to operate as stewards of geocaching in Middle Tennessee by providing resources not only for geocachers, but also for our fellow geocaching associations.

 

For more information about the Middle Tennessee Geocaching Club and our programs and activities visit our website at: www.MTGC.org

Kentucky Geocachers! Visit us at

www.geocky.org

 

What is GEOCKY?

GEOCKY (pronounced "Jockey") was formed in 2003 to promote safe and responsible GeoCaching in Kentucky.

 

Our organization has four major goals.

**First, to promote GeoCaching as a sport to the local community. We enjoy our hobby and want other interested people to join in.

**Second, to work to build a better understanding between Geocachers and those responsible for maintaining the land on which we Geocache. This means working with land management authorities and fellow Geocachers to make sure our hobby does not break any land use rules or upset property owners. The GEOCKY website holds lists of contacts for local parks to keep lines of communication between land owners and Geocachers open.

**Third, we want build a community of Geocachers who get together, swap stories, and have some fun. After all, fun is what Geocaching is all about.

**Finally, to make a positive contribution to Kentucky. We plan "Cache-in Trash-out" events at parks that need a good cleanup and other community-oriented activities to show Geocaching in a positive light.

One of our members, JumpinJackCache has created a great audio piece which aired on a local radio station concerning Geocaching. Check it out. There’s cache in them there hills!

 

We are a small club, but we feel it has been a great success.

To: The Geocaching Community

 

From: The Down East Geocachers (D.E.G)

 

The Down East Geocachers are proud to announce their reformation. With the recent growth of Geocaching in NC and the overwhelming success of the North Carolina Geocachers Organization, several cachers felt a need to organize a Geocaching organization to cater to a local area to act as complement to the already established state wide group.

Down East Geocachers plan to have a relatively small footprint in NC, we plan to concentrate roughly on I-95 East and Hwy 70 North, this area includes, and is not limited to, Wilson, Smithfield, Goldsboro, Greenville, Rocky Mount, Roanoke Rapids, Tarboro, Kinston, New Bern, Washington, and Nashville. A small committee is being formed to identify cachers in this area to lead, shape and form this group. We plan on using the group as a way to grow the caching community, organize events, coordinate CITOs, encourage open discussion, and secure the future of Geocaching, through local interaction. We want to be an extension of N.C.G.O., a local group with a narrower focus to serve, just like the, Triad, Triangle, NC Foothills, Fort Bragg, and Western NC Geocaching groups.

Currently our web presence is limited to our blog site, and discussion group, http://downeastgeocachers.blogspot.com , http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DownEastGeocachers/

but plans are in the works for a web site. Please keep checking back for updates often.

 

Thank you for your support,

 

The Down East Geocachers

YoGO (York County Geocaching Organization) has just recently formed to help promote geocaching with an emphasis on York County, SC. Anyone can join whether they are from York County or not. For more information, our website is www.YoGOSC.org or you can email us a yogo@yogosc.org.

 

We are working with the York County Convention & Visitor's Bureau and the Rock Hill Parks, Recreation and Tourism department to increase awareness of geocaching, educate land managers and help with future events. We just formed in October 2008 but we already have lots of things going on. We helped promote geocaching at the Carolina Thread Trail celebration at Crowder's Mountain and we are going to be part of Rock Hill's Come See Me festival in the spring. We are off to a great start!
