Avalanche 2015 10th edition

 

Unveiling of the date and location of the event

 

Dear geocachers,

 

The Quebec Geocaching Association (QGA) is pleased to officially announce the date and location of the 10th edition of the 2015 Avalanche event.

 

The Avalanche 2015 10th edition event will take place on February 21st, 2015 at Parc Régional Éducatif du Bois de Belle-Rivière in Mirabel, 45 minutes north of downtown Montreal.

 

The Parc Régional Éducatif du Bois de Belle-Rivière is a partner of the QGA since the beginning of the partnership program. This park offers many activities to its visitors and geocachers will enjoy them during the 10th edition of the 2015 Avalanche event.

 

Here are some activities that will be possible to do:

 

  • Geocaching (37 caches)
  • Snowshoeing trail of 17.4 km
  • Cross country skiing trail of 7 km
  • Skating trail
  • Hockey rink
  • Tubing
  • An 18-hole "disc golf" course
  • Horseback riding
  • Rental of shelters
  • And many more!

 

There will be of course many other activities for people of all ages prepared by our team of organizers.

 

In addition, for geocachers who can brave the cold, they will be able to bring their camping gear and sleep on the same site of the event. Several small outdoor fireplaces will be deployed near the campsite to set the mood to the place.

 

The event will be held in a heated tent that has just been built. So we can hold other activities inside.

 

This announcement is the first in a series of announcements that will take place until the day of the event. In later announcements, we should be able to unveil the website of the event, the design of the geocoin and other good news.

 

I hope that this announcement excites you as much as it is for the team of organizers and it will already give you a taste to participate. Know that we will do whatever it takes to achieve our goal of making the 10th edition of the 2015 Avalanche event a mega-event, but the presence of each of you is needed to make this event a success.

 

Have a great geocaching day!

AVALANCHE 2015, 10th Edition

 

Dear geocachers,

 

We are only a few days away from Avalanche 2015, 10th edition, the biggest geocaching winter event in Quebec. This message is to give you the latest news, updates and additions to this great event.

 

First of all, we are pleased to announce a new last minute access charge for the site. The Educational Regional Bois de Belle-Rivière Park offers ALL AVALANCHE 2015 PARTICIPANTS a 1$ discount on the adult entrance fee. Thank you to our hosts.

 

Next, note that two new activities were added to the program: SILENT AUCTION and MINI FLEA MARKET. Both activities were made possible thanks to the collaboration of the Regional Educational Bois de Belle-Rivière Park and volunteers for the event. During the SILENT AUCTION, you can bid (payable in cash or check) on several items, such as one of the two nights in a shelter in the Park, a family fishing trip and many others. Take a peek at our MINI FLEA MARKET, where you can give a second life to objects abandoned (but still in good condition) by their former owners.

 

Of course, rest assured that all profits generated by the Quebec Geocaching Association and the Avalanche 2015 activities will return directly to the Quebec geocaching community.

 

Also, throughout the day, you can take part in a multitude of activities using the "Geocacher's book" which will be provided to you upon registration at the reception table. Why not save some time by immediately getting the GPX file that contains the coordinates of some points of interest?? It is also now possible for you to get the GPX file of all geocaches located on the site. Both files are available for download by following the link to the official website of the event:

Click here to go to the "Downloads"

 

We also wish to thank geocacher Goldriver who kindly agreed to adapt its geocaches on the site to reflect the winter spirit of the event. We would also like to remind you that it is extremely important to follow the instructions of the different paths (walkers, skates, snowshoes and skis) and not to damage or venture into them without reason. Thank you for your cooperation.

 

A NEW Wherigo is now available on the site. It was specially created by mlafortu for Avalanche 2015, 10th edition and can be downloaded immediately by following the links below. Be ready to go on this quest on the day of the event.

Click here to visit the official page of the Wherigo on http://www.geocaching.com

Voilà, you now know about the latest developments of Avalanche 2015.

 

Happy geocaching to all and see you soon.

The organizing committee of the Avalanche 2015 event, 10th edition.
