Our new Adventure Lab is now live! The GAGB's brand new Adventure Lab takes you to the 10 most visited YOSM locations. If you complete all of the stages in person, then you will have travelled the length and breadth of Great Britain... a true adventure! Good Luck!
Get ready for GAGB CITO Week, beginning on Saturday September 14th and ending on Sunday September 22nd. That’s nine full days! We encourage you to organise a CITO for GAGB CITO Week. Two profile badges are up for grabs - one for organisers, and another for attendees. In addition, as it falls within Groundspeak’s autumn CITO season, attendees will also obtain an official souvenir.
We’re excited to announce that our Adventure Lab is now LIVE! The adventure takes the player through a number of locations in the Central London area, ranging from the London Eye, to Big Ben and Trafalgar Square. All locations are wheelchair accessible and are perfect for taking that London Selfie. Each location will have a question that you have to answer. This proves that you were doing the selfie adventure and not sitting at home looking on Google Maps.&
Our next roving event (GC84K6Z) will be held in London, at the London Apprentice, Isleworth, on May 7th between 19:00-22:00. Come for some geochat and to find out more about what the GAGB does. We will also have our geocoins and Racing Hound tags on sale. We hope to see you there!
We can confirm that our SWAG Weekend 2019 will be Easter weekend (19th-22nd April). It's all about removing 'tat' and placing some good quality SWAG (trade items) inside any caches you find throughout the four-day weekend.
One of our GAGB Friends, Stoke Bunnies, was interviewed by BBC Radio Somerset about geocaching on the Somerset Wildlife Trust Reserves. Geocaching was also discussed more generally. You can listen to the interview here (start from 01:10:00): BBC Sounds.
The GAGB is running a trackable race in 2019. To join the race, choose a dog breed, purchase the tag from our Online Shop, and place it in a cache or event to start its journey! There are five race categories. The main prize is for the Long Distance Runner - the tag to travel the furthest by early 2020. Tags are also competing to be crowned Best of Breed - check out the goals of the different breeds and choose wisely! Tags cost £5.50 each.
