So Sunday rolls around again and we are another week closer to the Alexandra MEGA event this coming November. Planning on the many facets of this huge event has already well and truly begun.
This includes LAB caches. Yep, we are not leaving these to the last minute. We have selected some of the most creative cache placers in the state to rack their brains to come up with the most dazzling ideas that they can. And, they have 9 months to plan, design and build some LAB caches that will truly make the Alexandra Event an event to be remembered. If you’ve never done a LAB cache, then check out this link
If you have done LAB caches before and you enjoy them, prepare to be amazed this coming November!
The first of the geocoins are still on sale and will continue to sell until the 9th of April. This very special coin depicts Fern out taking a hike and as mentioned previously all profit from the sale of these coins is going directly to the four Geocaching Melbourne Oxfam Teams that are competing the 100 kilometer Oxfam challenge this April. There will be other coins go on sale later in the year, but if you want the whole set, or if you just want to help support the Geocaching Melbourne Oxfam teams, then make sure you order one of these coins straight away to avoid disappointment!

The second one of the lead up events went off amazingly yesterday in Wedderburn. 44 teams attended the event and ate 80 of the best bushman’s sausages in Australia, kindly donated to us by Anvil Angus and Alexandra Quality Meats. It is sensational to see so many people making the trip out to Wedderburn with many teams staying in the area for the weekend. The next lead up event is in Portland on the 11th of March. You can follow this link to the event listing. We look forward to seeing you all then!
Of course the merchandise continues to sell and it is fantastic to see The Alexandra Event t-shirts, jumpers and polo shirts appearing at events around the state already. The feedback so far on the quality of the merchandise is that it is of excellent quality and the couple of issues that people have so far reported have all been quickly resolved by spreadshirt. You can follow this link to our spreadshirt shop to design and build your own shirt and if you are not completely happy with the end product we of course encourage you to contact spreadshirt immediately.
We hope you are all enjoying getting out and finding lots of caches. We look forward to seeing you all in November and remember, if you’re hoping to come, make sure you log your “Will Attend” on the event listing today!
