Summer has passed and fall is on the way. Come and help us celebrate the turning of the seasons by attending NoVAGO’s last major event of 2017. This year’s event will again be held with a Halloween theme. Attendees are encouraged to come in costume to celebrate the season.
Be sure to log your “will-attend” as early as possible to ensure that we have enough food for the masses. Attendees are encouraged to bring your favorite pot luck dish, all we ask is that you list what you are bringing in your “will attend” log so that others won’t bring in a similar dish. As with all of our picnics NoVAGO will be supplying the charcoal, hamburgers, hot dogs, plates, and condiments.

NoVAGO X PATHTAGS ARE AVAILABLE AGAIN!
Earlier this year NoVAGO had a special Pathtag made for our 10 year anniversary. These tags sold out within minutes of becoming available. NoVAGO is please to announce that we have made a second order of these and these will be available at this event. Tags are $1 each and sold in bags of 5, 10 or 20.
To help celebrate our 10th year Geocaching HQ has granted NoVAGO three 1 Day Only Lab Caches that will released during the event for all to find. The link to these labs will be released at the event.
Lab Caches are an experimental often found at Mega-Events. In contrast to other cache types, Lab Caches are not required to have a container and can also be located indoors. This allows Lab Cache owners to innovate and test new ideas to make geocaching even more fun.
Our team is working on putting the final touches on the full schedule, events, food, and geocaches so please check back for updates on the various activities. We look forward to seeing everyone!
