CIGA Adds New Travel Tag
CIGA is introducing a new CIGA trackable travel tag. It is like any other trackable with a mission page and tracking on geocaching.com.  Send CIGA to see the world.

It is available only from the club and will be events, such as club meetings and the annual picnic. Anyone paying this year's annual dues of $10 gets one free.  Additional tags are available for $5 each.

plant seeds for prairie regrowth.

CIGA at GeoWoodstock
nic beats the heat for Get O
GeoWoodstock 14er was held at Denver, close enough to draw CIGA cachers.  

CIGA picnic beats the heat for Get Outdoors day
Air conditioning won the day for the CIGA picnic in Bloomington.  It was a hot June day.  There were activities outside to observe Get Outdoor days.  But indoors had efficient cooling, welcome relief for 34 people attending.

Kayak caching and cookout at Lake Evergreen  
Great weather lead to a high turnout for kayak caching and a cookout at Lake Evergreen.  It was a joint event between CIGA and Peoria Area Cachers. 

Menard County Tour Cache
