GEOBoji Cache Fishin' --- IGO's (Iowa Geocachers Organization) eleventh annual Hike and Seek is almost here!!  This annual event is coming soon on September 12-14, 2014, in the Iowa Great Lakes (Okoboji) area. 

This will be a great time to geocache around Okoboji since the busy summer season will be over. After Labor Day campgrounds are not as packed and motel rates are less than that during the peak summer season.

There will be 90+ new caches in addition to the 200+ existing official geocaching.com caches of various types and sizes within 10 miles of HnS 2014 headquarters on Emerson Bay of West Lake Okoboji.

Event caches will include a Friday evening Meet & Greet potluck dinner (the Annual Members Meeting) followed by the monthly Board of Directors Meeting, a catered dinner Saturday evening with cache competition winners announced, and a pancake breakfast on Sunday morning. Sidebar events include a 101 Cache Design Class and a Flash Mob.  We also have 'early in' and 'late out' meet-and-greets events planned.   Also, there will be kid-friendly organized activities.

Cache competition includes a Poker Run, four puzzle caches with multiple waypoints to visit, and several new, unpublished caches to find.  Make sure you pick up the HnS'14 Diary on Saturday morning so you have the information needed for this contest.
