2017 People's Choice Awards

The IGO Board of Directors have decided to revamp the People's Choice Awards this year.  In an effort to keep the awards interesting and continue to acknowledge the contributions that have been made to geocaching in Iowa this past year, we have decided to make a few changes.  We are adding some new categories and removing some of the old categories.  And some categories will remain the same!  We also added some guidelines to help make the nomimating process a little more clear. 

Interview with an Iowa Geocacher

I have geocached with Jan many times, nothing gets in her way of finding the cache. She is prepared, you can see that in her car, laptop, cords, etc, she knows how to use her phone for navigation.
