The GAGB can now confirm that the GAGB Annual Weekend 2016 will be the weekend of Saturday 17th September and Sunday 18th September.
We therefore invite all our members to hold CITO (Cache In Trash Out) events on these dates. Cache In Trash Out is an ongoing environmental initiative supported by the worldwide geocaching community. Since 2002, geocachers have been dedicated to cleaning up parks and other cache-friendly places around the world. Through these volunteer efforts, we help preserve the natural beauty of our outdoor resources. You can find out more about CITO on our own CITO page and Geocaching.com's page.
This year, our Annual Weekend falls within Geocaching.com's own CITO week, which runs between September 17-25. So, by organising your GAGB CITO for September 17th/18th, you and your attendees will gain a souvenir for your profiles, as well as giving something back to the environment and being part of what we hope will be the biggest GAGB Annual Weekend ever.
It is best to start organising your GAGB CITO event in the coming days/weeks. Please name your event as follows: GAGB 2016: [pick a name for your event] The GAGB Committee will try their best to organise as many GAGB CITO events as possible between them. However, we need YOU to organise your own too - especially as we want to make this year's Annual Weekend bigger and better than ever before. So, join us to break some records and be part of something special. It is not as difficult or challenging as you may think to organise a CITO event. If you need any help whatsoever, just contact the GAGB committee - we're more than happy to help. Please note that more information may be announced nearer the time - keep an eye on social media; we'll use #GAGB2016 when referring to our Annual Weekend.
