The Mega might have officially finished but we know plenty of geocachers are still out and about and as with any event there is always some follow up information!
Did you get a picture with Signal on Saturday and miss out on an “I Met Signal” trackable? We have a few left to send out so add your Signal image on the Geocaching Victoria Facebook page or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will randomly select 10 winners!
Forgot to pop your receipts in the box or no longer in town to drop them at the caravan park? Email your receipts through to email@example.com and we will add them to the stash! Make sure you tell us your name and mobile number in case you are the winner of the unobtainable coin!
The photo competition is still happening. Tag your social media images with #starnaud2019 to be in the draw to win a cool prize. Competition closes Sunday the 24th November.
Please take the time to fill in our evaluation. We will use this to help with future planning: https://forms.gle/45mgqRHuEqqx5Ss36
Pathtag Trading Sets
If you didn’t quite manage to get all the “trading set” St Arnaud Pathtags don’t fear. It is important to Geocaching Victoria that no ones ends up without a complete set, so we are hoping to assist the geocachers involved to get in touch with each other and complete the required trades. If you have an incomplete trading set of pathtags, please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org or via Geocaching Victoria FB messenger with the tag colour you have to trade and the tag colour you are missing and contact details you are happy to pass on to the other parties and we will help get you in touch with the missing pathtag holder.
Standard Edition Coin
We were trying something new with the standard edition coin this year and we were so happy with the response. It was so popular, that for the first time ever we have sold out completely!!! To make sure no one misses out, we are putting in another small order. We have the coin up for sale on the website now and orders will be closing at the end of the month, so please order now to avoid disappointment: https://shop.geocachingvictoria.com.au/
St Arnaud Shirts
We will also be placing one last order of shirts so make sure you order before the end of the month if you want to look as snazzy as everyone else! Order in the Geocaching Victoria Store: https://shop.geocachingvictoria.com.au/
Limited Edition Coins:
