Kick Off to Summer Geocaching Event! -
Orange City's new club the Sioux County Geocaching Club is going to kick off it's first event! We'd love for veteran cachers to join this newly formed club and attend the event!
The Kick Off to Summer Geoaching Event is located in Kinderspeeland Park (formally known as Vet's Park). Registration will take place in the Scouts House (by the flag pole) at 9:00 a.m. with the event beginning as soon as all are registered. Registrants can sign up in one of the following competitions if they wish: individual, team (2 to 4 person team), or in the family competition. Registrants do not have to compete in any of the competitions if they do not want to.
What to expect: If you haven't had time to log all the great caches around OC, now's your chance as well as race to capture all the temporary caches that will be available for those who want to compete! There will be several multi-caches - puzzle caches - night caches - and a whole lot of fun with lots of great cachers!
All competitors will be given time to upload coordinates for the event and will be given a handbook with a short description of the individual caches that will count for the competition and event. All participants whether competing or not must be back by 3:00 p.m. to be eligible for awards. A potluck/BBQ will follow so please bring a hot and cold dish to share!
Hang around and enjoy Orange City and complete the night caches in the area too!

The Sioux County Geocaching Club is an extention to the OCCS Outdoor Adventure Club started in 2000. We hope to continue this partnership and are excited about the potential of other partnerships such as 4H, Girl Scouts, Boy and Cub Scouts and other organizations and clubs throughout Sioux County. Thank-you to the Sioux County Water and Soil Conservation Board who generously donated funds to keep OCCS OAC and now SCGC geocaches' on the grid!!Saturday, June 20, 2015
Shaded dates in the calendar below indicate Iowa event cache (or proposed event) dates for 2012.
MOGA (Mid-West Open Geocaching Adventure) is NOT an IGO event. In fact, it started as a SLAGA (St. Louis Area Geocachers Assoc.) event and has evolved into a mid-west tradition that may pass from one organization to another. Even though IGO has never been involved in planning or hosting this event, we have had a small contingent of cachers from Iowa present at the last couple of MOGA’s...and those who attended have had a good time despite some trying conditions. MOGA is a great early-Spring outing for anyone who enjoys geocaching and IGO encourages all members to consider participation in this event.
