So the Alexandra MEGA is over and what a fantastic time we have all had. That now completes the third successful MEGA event held by Geocaching Melbourne in as many years. So what to do next? That’s right, let’s jump back in a do it all over again! But this time, we’re taking the road-show to the city!
First thing’s first though.
We felt it was about time for a change of name as we have kind of outgrown the term “Geocaching Melbourne”, so we asked the community for their input and after a reasonably lengthy discussion and survey polling the people who geocache in Victoria, we have arrived at our new name and that will be “Geocaching Victoria”.
So what does that mean? Well it means a brand new and completely redesigned website which has just been launched. You can find that at this address → http://geocachingvictoria.com.au
It also means a name change for our Facebook page and our GC account, but don’t worry, it still the same team behind the scenes working tirelessly to enhance the geocaching experience of people in Victoria and those visiting Victoria. The committee behind the new Geocaching Victoria Inc is…
- Day Gowland (day1976) – President
- Louise Sullivan (LouiseAnn) – Vice President
- Bernie Hollaway (BernieH) – Treasurer
- Adriaan Homburg (ahomburg) – Secretary
- Karen Ashford (carkisser) – Committee Member
- Lorraine Sleep-Ogilvie (The Tritonz) – Committee Member
- Peter Taurins (caught at work) – Committee Member
The committee looks forward to working on many different geocaching projects over the next year and in the years to come.
But wait, did I mention before something about the next MEGA moving to the city?
