And the 2018 Cache Awards Winners are…

 

Despite the rain many NoVAGO members flocked to Sundays Yo Momma Says Clean Up Moore CITO at Claude Moore Park and NoVAGO 2019 Evento de Primavera del Cinco de Mayo Spring event and 2018 Awards Ceremony. Many thanks to the dedicated geocachers who showed up in rain gear to slosh around the park cleaning and to everyone who participated in our annual picnic festivities.  We had 50 names signed on today’s picnic log, but I guarantee there was more than that number of folks crowded under that little pavilion.  Also a special shout out to grill master DePhogration who battled the soggy downpours by fabricating umbrella stands to keep the flames hot and our burgers dry.  After we ring out our clothes and dry off we look forward to seeing everyone again in the fall!

I am Marylander who moved to NoVA back in 2006. I found one geocache in 2010, but it wasn't until 2012 that I really became a geocacher. I served as a director for NoVAGO in 2014, and have been the Public Affairs Officer since 2016.
