The purpose of the MnGCA is to provide a resource for Minnesota geocachers to organize activities and events that will improve the credibility of the sport, protect our natural resources and strengthen the community of geocachers in the state of Minnesota. Our responsibilities include holding educational, social and informational activities to increase awareness of our sport; to sponsor reports, meetings, and workshops for MnGCA members and the public on a wide area of topics, primarily about responsible land use and geocaching; and to work with local, county, and state governments to promote geocaching as a family-oriented outdoor activity.
All MnGCA members are welcome to vote for 2014 Cache of the Year. Voting ends at the end of January, so don't wait until the last moment!
The opportunity to submit your design to be the 2015 MnGCA shirt is now here. Designs must be submitted by noon CST on Friday, February 13th. Please check out the details for participating in the forum: http://mngca.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7760
Some of the most challenging puzzles in the state are from a cacher down in the Rochester area. He's hidden over 40 caches, and has found close to 10,000 of them. When looking for who would kick off the new year of profiled cachers, I knew salsman was definitely at the top of the list!

I'd like to nominate a Bookiegeek cache Sollerön Fäbod http://coord.info/GC52YN8 .
A very well done and creative hide with a 75% favorite count. It's so well made it's magical. A must do cache for anyone.

On the days around April 26, scores of Minnesota geocachers dedicated their time in cleaning up parks and geocaching friendly areas during CITO (Cache In Trash Out) events all around the State. Keeping the public lands enjoyable for everyone and being good stewards of the lands are key components of geocaching.
The design has been chosen! Very nice design, indeed!
The ordering process will begin later this week. Orders will be accepted through March 20, 2014.

We haven't done a huge number of multi caches but this is, in my opinion, the most challenging yet enjoyable multi stage cache I have seen yet.
