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.
One of the most prolific local cachers, who you will find at nearly any event and any cache, is PA-20. This guys gets around - he's cached just about everywhere! I bumped into him a few years ago at a cache in Burnsville, and we've been crossing paths ever since! I had the pleasure of celebrating his 10,000th find last October. The best part of PA-20 is that he has the most interesting geocaching stories - and he's not shy about sharing them! So without further ado, here's this month's featured cacher, PA-20!

Nominated By: Rustynails
Over 75 people attended the 2014 Spring Event at Oxbow Park near Rochester on May 3.
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!

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.
