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.
GAGB Elections are now over. Only one person was nominated for Chair, and seven people accepted their nominations for a place on the Committee. Therefore, a ballot was not held. The 2018/1
All GAGB members are eligible, and encouraged, to participate. You must be 18 or over to stand for election, but all members can nominate and vote. All ‘active’ members will receive a ballot to your registered email. The full election details can be found here
