2015 Summer Campout

Posted By:  hydnsek @ Nov 6 2014, 02:11 AM
WSGA's Campout Committee has been busily reviewing parks for our 12th-annual Summer Campout, and the deed is done. The 2015 WSGA Campout will be at Manchester State Park, which is near Port Orchard on the Kitsap Peninsula, on July 31 - Aug. 2. (This is a week later than originally announced, due to campsite availability.)

Campout manager is LadyCosmic (Karin Haager) of Puget Sound chapter, assisted by ClayArtist (Patti Stoll) and the Olympic Peninsula chapter.

The event page and registration will be available within a couple months, and we'll have more details as they develop.

As always, there will be lots of fun and activities, plus great caching. We look forward to seeing you there!

Announcing the 2015 Small Grant Program

Posted By:  hydnsek @ Nov 4 2014, 10:16 PM
WSGA is pleased to announce the second year of our Small Grant Program, which provides annual funding to support geocaching-­related projects in Washington.

For 2015, thanks to the program's success and the club's healthy finances, we are increasing the grant pool to $2,000 (from $500), all or part of which may be awarded to applicants. (Award limit is $1,000 per applicant.)

The Small Grant Program is available to individuals, groups, park systems, and nonprofit organizations working on geocaching-related activities that will positively impact the Washington geocaching community.

The 2014 recipients were Auburn Parks & Recreation and Mount Vernon Parks Foundation. Read about their awards and results.

The 2015 Grant timeline is as follows:
  • Grant applications accepted: Jan. 1-31, 2015
  • Applications evaluated: Feb. 1 - March 15
  • Grants announced: March 16

Attached is the 2015 Small Grants Program application (PDF), which also provides full details on the program and requirements.

We really want to to get the word out about the Grant Program to those who might benefit, so please help us publicize it and encourage eligible parties to participate. Tell fellow cachers, park personnel, schools, scouts, etc., who might have a great geocaching project that could use a boost.
