Regional Organizations List

Recommended Posts

Could a moderator please pin a Regional Organizations list in the Midwest Forum?

 

It should help new cachers get started a little easier.

 

Ohio groups include:

 

Northwest Ohio Geocachers (http://www.nwogeo.org)

Northeast Ohio Geocachers (http://www.neogeocachers.com) (updated)

Central Ohio Geocachers (http://www.cogeocaching.org)

West Central Ohio (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/WCOhioGeoCachers/)

OKIC (Tri-State OH, KY, IN) (http://www.okic.org/)

CACHE (Cincinnati, also) (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/C_A_C_H_E/)

 

EDIT: Updated NEO

I'm still hoping that some day we'll deserve a sticky that lists the regional groups. Maybe when we become a real part of the country? Wait, we already are.

Though not in the midwest region acoording to gc.com, since Iowa is surrounded on three sides by "you guys" Ill list Eastern Iowa Geocachers Association.

 

Our "regional" pages have lists of caches (chosen by "the locals") for folks passing through and wanting to make the best use of their time.

I know that PA isn't part of our region, but for some of us like me, where caches in PA are 12 miles from my house and events are closer for me to go to PA for them....

 

Here's their Yahoo group.. I don't remember if they have a regular site or not since all I go to is the y!group.

I pinned the topic as requested. Lets try to keep this topic to a list of midwest geocaching organizations.

 

I'll keep it pinned as we stay on topic. :rolleyes:

Bjorn74, how about making your starting a topic a comprehensive list of all the groups as they are listed?

I can't edit it. I also stopped watching these forums a few months ago.

 

Thanks for the sticky, though.

Since noone else has done it, I'll add an entry for the Chi-Town Cachers covering NE Illinois to the Wisconsin and Indiana borders.

 

There is a fairly active Yahoo group at

 

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/chicago_geocachers/

 

and a Web page which is undergoing updating and construction at

Is there an Ohio group that covers the Dayton area? I don't see a southwest group listed at the beginning of this topic.

 

TIA

Don't forget InKy. This is the geocaching social group in the Southern Indiana/Louisville, Kentucky area. Check out website at:

Going along with INKY, NEIgeo and the other local caching groups in Indiana (as compared to the overall Indiana geocaching group which ties everything together), we have formed CINCO to be the local group in the northwest of Indy region; i.e., Kokomo, Lebanon, Lafayette, Monticello, Logansport. We are going to have our first event in early Nov, 2005 with plans for events at least every other month after that. The events will be small meet'n'greets. See www.cincogeo.com for more information.

While the Yahoo group still exists and gets occasional traffic, the new organization for the Chicago metro area is Geocachers of Northeastern Illinois. The home page also includes a link to the group's forums, which have been proving to be a far better communication/discussion vehicle than the Yahoo group.

Pinestrail and I are in the process of setting up BAGO --Bippus Area Geocachers Organization - to serve cachers in the greater Bippus, Indiana metropolitan area --Bippus, Servia, Huntington. Roanoke, North Manchester, Urbana, and Warsaw- actually quite a cache-dense area... ;)

:D

New! I'm in Naperville, IL and would like to know of any groups out this way, and if there is none, I would like to start one. I don't even have a GPS unit yet, but I did find 2 caches in Minnesota a few years ago, so I have a basic idea of how this works.

 

Hope to see a response! I joined a Yahoo group but there hadn't been posts in months, so hopefully I'll find other cachers somehow. I'm a return-ee to the chicago area, don't have any friends left so am anxious to meet some new people.

 

Ta ta!
