Gander Geocacher's Association

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone. I am currently looking for any Cachers in Gander Newfoundland (or the surrounding area) that are interested in starting up a Geocachers association. I have a website set up (click on GAGA info and updates on the left hand side of the page).

 

If you're interested you can get in touch with me using the Contact link. It will take you to an e-mail form. Fill it out and I'll get back to you ASAP. icon_cool.gif

TJ,

Are there any outdoor stores in your area? Anywhere GPS's are sold might be a good spot to post a note, even talk to the sales people about it and get the word out. I must admit, I never heard of Gander until I saw a news story about all the hospitality your comunity put forth to all the redirected travelers on 9-11. That was truly heartwarming.

only Walmart and Radio Shack sell GPSR's in this town. Pointless to talk to anyone at Walmart, since you can never find anyone in the store anyway. Radioshack apparently knows nothing about the uits they sell.

 

Anyway, that's the only 2 stores here with GPSR's.

TJ,

 

Your site looks great. Hope you can stir up some interest in caching out your way.

 

I was wodering you would would mind adding a link to the canadian Geocoins web site on your links page? Seems appropriate.

I don't think there are enough geocachers in Central Newfoundland yet to subdivide by community. I'm in Lewisporte, and probably the only one here. Would you consider expanding GAGA to include all of central? I have not been able to access your website to see what you have in mind. icon_frown.gif Maybe smaller, community groups affiliated with a larger one would make more sense. I'll do up my own Geocaching website soon and see how things go.

I had to de-activate my server program on the other computer a while ago, it's now running on my computer, http://205.251.181.149/gaga

 

That should take you to it. I was thinking of having it go from approx. Grand Falls, out as far as Twillingate, and maybe as far east as Gambo. I would try to get representatives from each town on the "commitie" for planning events and the like.

 

E-mail me at trevor.wilson@roadrunner.nf.net for more info.

I have decided to follow your lead and create a club for the Lewisporte area. Got a rough website put together to try and attract some members. LAGC Will make up posters to put around town too. Any progress being made on a Newfoundland and Labrador association?
