Join NoVAGO and the MGS for a Fun Summer Day!

July 8th is shaping up to be a busy day!

Since they are both very close together it makes perfect sense to attend both the NoVAGO Summer CITO and the MGS for their 2017 Summer Picnic.  Both groups are looking forward to meeting up and mingling with each other.

Here is more information about the NoVAGO CITO:

As always NoVAGO will have bags and some supplies on hand for the clean up.  We always welcome boxes of bags and other clean up materials to be donated to us to be used at future CITO’s.

Here is more information on the 2017 MGS Summer Picnic: https://coord.info/GC6ZXZM

The MGS will be having their annual silent auction during the picnic. They welcome donations for the silent auction, as well as, participate in the bidding for Geocaching related goodies.
MGS will also be having a new PathTags and Extagz fundraiser. They are inviting folks to bring either their own or any spare tags they may have to a winner take all opportunity. For each unique tag someone donates they get a raffle ticket. Additional raffle tickets can be purchased for $1 apiece or six tickets for $5. One ticket will be drawn and the winner takes all. Please share this information with your members.
Please contact Denise (a.k.a., humphr1d) publicrelations@mdgps.org for information.

It’s time for NoVAGO’s Summer CITO!

Join NoVAGO and other area geocachers for a summer CITO at Scott’s Run. A popular place for hiking and families, Scott’s Run experiences a high volume of traffic especially during the summer. Let’s help keep the trail beautiful and protect the flora and fauna by picking up while enjoying some hiking in the woods.

Bring water to keep yourself hydrated and sturdy shoes for the nature trails. If you have gloves or trash grabbers, bring them along as well.

Please note that both parking lots at Scott’s Run are rather small. and we recommend carpooling if possible. If demand dictates, we will expand the clean-up to nearby Riverbend Park (which affords additional parking opportunities). Keep an eye on the cache page for additional details.
