It was great to see so many events hosted across Victoria last month and that our community was able to take full advantage of the unseasonably warm weather. Thank you to all of you that organised these events, the logs certainly indicate a great time was had by many.
Just a few quick updates from Geocaching Victoria – there are still many events scheduled in our calendar, so make sure you keep an eye on our ‘Upcoming Events Page‘, but also let us know if you would like an event added.
We know that we have been quiet in sharing further Whittlesea Mega details with you particularly around the accomadation and program, but we are hoping to do this in coming weeks. We just want to lock in some final details before we publish them. Fundraising continues in preparation for the Mega with the next two BBQ’s at Mernda Bunnings scheduled for Saturday 2nd July and Saturday 29th October. Please add these to your diary. A special thanks must go to Belinda and Don Parker, who work hard in the background to coordinate these for us. Further details will come out close to the dates.
April Competition – Share a Virtual Log Find
It was great to see so many within our community enjoy the new virtual caches that have recently been released. Thank you to all that submitted your log in the April GVI Competition, we thoroughly enjoyed reading all the logs. A big shout out must go to the winner this month – veevers12. Congratulations on your win. We will be in contact shortly to organise to get you your prize.
ABC – South West Interview – RoamingHowie
This month also saw another GVI Committee member promote this passionate game of ours. Congratulations to Andrew Howard (RoamingHowie) for a great interview on ABC – South West Victoria. You can listen to the interview below.
Victoria Cache of the Year Awards
Thanks to everyone in the community that has submitted nominations. We have been impressed by the high volume of submissions. In the next few weeks we will collate them and then share the list for voting. So watch this space!
We are planning to announce the winners of each category (2020-2021 awards) at the Whittlesea Mega, details are still being finalised. So keep an eye open for details in coming months. Also it should be noted that the 2019 Awards process was actually paused due to the Covid lockdowns. Voting did close, but the results were never shared. The announcement of the winners will also be at the Whittlesea Mega in November 2022.
