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 and future NoVAGO hosted events.  Tags are $1 each and sold in bags of 5, 10 or 20.

NoVAGO would like to thank both it’s members and the MGS for making the clean up at Scott’s Run a huge Success.  Over 23 geocachers and family woke up early Saturday and volunteered to pick up trash.  Many of the usual litter suspects where there for the pickings like beer bottles, bagged dog poo, cigarettes, a shoe, and a I saw one tire made it in the pile.

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.
