The Geocaching Swiss Army Knife & Open Street Map seminar hosted by Ryan Goolevitch & Adam Baxter at the Regina Public Library was featured in a short segment of Global Regina Evening News on Saturday November 24th, 2012.
Thanks to all who attended the event and vbpad for the great GSAK information! I even learned some things! Tune into Global Regina news at 6:00PM tonight to see their spot on the event! I don't get it on Bell, anyone here have the means to record it to a computer? vbpad and Nezgar will add reference material to the cache page in the next few days. See you at the Christmas event next week!
When: 12/12/12@12:12:12 Central Standard Time (Lunch Time!)
Where: Southland Mall Food Court Time (Lunch Time!)
Why: What better way to contemplate the upcoming end of the world and the last date singularity of the Gregorian calendar for 89 years than over lunch and hot drinks with fellow geocachers?
(and also so Nezgar doesn't have to go outside to find a cache that day!)
This event is open to all geocachers. Pop by, say hi, discover some trackables, and maybe even win a door prize!

On Saturday, November 24th, come inside from the cold to join fellow geocachers Nezgar & vbpad, learn some of the latest tips and tricks with GSAK using additional macros and the Geocaching.com API, and the benefits of Open Street Map (now the default mapping service for Geocaching.com) and how to contribute to it.
After a very successful event last year, the Regina Public Library has invited Regina Geocachers back to host another presentation at the RPL film theatre. This is a great opportunity for you and any potentially interested ‘muggles’ you know to learn about activity of Geocaching.
A fellow geocacher in the Melfort, SK area is hosting a fundraider for the Kidney Foundation. Geocachers of all ages will have fun finding cool geocaches all while contributing to kidney health and initiatives in Saskatchewan. Participants will spend a couple hours seeking out caches hidden close to the event location.
Join fellow Regina and South Saskatchewan Geocachers on December 3, 2011 at the Girl Guide Basement starting at 5:00PM for a delicious Potluck supper and a fantastic opportunity to meet or catch up with other cachers.
Olemaz and Nezgar were interviewed by Peter Mills for CBC TV about Geocaching and the segment was aired on the Oct 26, 2011 news at 5. It was fun to do, and they did a great job putting it all together. We thank them for the opportunity to promote the activity, and would be happy to do it again any time!
From October 20 to November 10, 2011 the Dunlop Art Gallery has taken to the streets of Regina and placed temporary caches throughout the downtown area and the Gallery itself to promote the gallery with small tokens or art objects for trade.
