CIGA Picnic Moving to Bloomington
The CIGA picnic is moving to Bloomington this year. It will be June 11 at GE/Union Park. Picnic goers will have access to a private recreation area with great facilities. We will eat indoors with activities outside. More details come later.
Over the nine previous years, the event has been in various locations. This time, Bloomington gets a turn, because it is near the geographic center for club members.
Going to the Movies
The Geocaching International Film Festival came to central Illinois. Decatur hosted a screening of the finalists in the annual competition sponsored by geocaching.com. As in the past, the amateur short films were filled with creativity, adventure and humor.
Two dozen cachers from CIGA and SLAGA met in Springfield to celebrate cooperation between the two clubs. As part of the picnic, the two teams finished a friendly skill competition in a tie. After a tie breaker toss of ammo cans, SLAGA won the trophy for a year.
CIGA Picnic IX
The weather gave us a break in the rain for the annual picnic at Spitler Woods State Park. Those attending got first chance to do four new gadget caches. Several took a trail tour of the CIGA 10. The geocoins are activated. Log a discover, and watch for an icon in your profile. Thanks to those who took part in the ammo can carnival.
