WSGA's 3rd annual Going APE event - now with Mega status - will be Sunday, Aug. 19. We had so much fun the past two years, we're gonna host Going APE every year alongside Groundspeak's Geocaching Block Party. Bonus: Groundspeak is creating a Souvenir for this Mega event!

So mark your calendars: The Pacific Northwest is now THE destination for geocaching on the third weekend in August – International Geocaching weekend.

Hi,
yeah, we are looking forward to this trip very much. As far as I know we will be in Seattle right now 15 people. Not the 100 who said " Yes I come" last year, when the idea was born at the GCF in Cologne. Due to the prices and their families most of them stepped back from this idea.
I hope to generate a few more, but this depends on time to come. I guess some of them will decide later in the year, in case they get flights arranged.

That's pretty sweet... Any chance it would be retroactive to last years Mega-event as well? (assuming no..) Unfortunately this years event conflicts with another annual trip to Oregon, so I won't be able to make it... sad.gif

I'm assuming "no" as well. Sorry! I'll ask them when the Souvenir is made (shortly before the event), but I expect that's what they'll say. My impression is that Groundspeak is creating Souvenirs for Mega events, and last year's APE was not a Mega when held; we only got that retroactively after an attendance count. This year, we are officially a Mega, so they are doing a Souvenir.

Enjoy your trip to Oregon!

Sounds like fun. I would like to volunteer for anything that needs to be done. I started geocachinfg as a snowbird in AZ and CA. I am back home now and don't know anyone in the area that geocaches. Think this would be a great way to meet fellow cachers

Our Going APE...at the Tunnel of Light mega event is only 10 days away! cool.gif We're expecting the largest turnout yet, and hope to see you there. Thanks to all our members who have volunteered to help! biggrin.gif

And we have a special surprise: We've minted an APE event coin! The bronze coin was designed by NepoKama and we only minted 250 of this LE version. It will be sold exclusively at the Going APE event on Sunday, Aug. 19. No advance purchases or reservations; you must buy them on site. $10 each, limit of 3 per account/family. Cash only.

Here's a preview of the trackable coin and its custom icons:





We'll also have an APE event T-shirt on sale at the event. $12 for most sizes. Cash only.



Finally, here's the souvenir for the APE mega-event, designed by NepoKama:
