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.

CIGA-SLAGA Picnic         
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. 

Q's Amazing Race          
It was a full day of activities for Q's Amazing Race in Decatur. From a pancake breakfast to CITO, flash mob, the race, ending with cookout and prizes.
While 15 teams entered, a few others opted to check out 36 new caches placed for the event.
