    Default International event?

    The following was posted in the MGA website (Maritime Geocaching Association):
    Wouldnt it be cool if we could do an international event. For example, in the towns of St. Stephen and Calais, or Houlton and Woodstock, we could do an event in one town on Friday night or Saturday, and another event in the other town on the next day or morning. We could promote it in both Maine and NB, and get to know fellow cachers on the other side of the border!
    Whaddya all think? Any takers?

    Opinions?

    Thumbs up Smashing idea

    I have been to an event in Canada and are going to another one in May. One on the border would get my attention for sure. Yes, go for it.
    Happy Trails!
    Yeah it's a Jeep thing!

    Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

    That's a great idea! We do something similar in Eastern Star, when we have the Maritime Grand Family Exchange. The Canadians will come here and do the initiation ceremony on a new Maine member, and then we go over there and initiate a new Canadian member. It makes it very special for the person joining, to have their initiation done by foreign dignitaries.

    Maybe there will be enough activities both days to make it worthwhile for folks who can't cross the border. I'm sure there are Canadians who are stuck on their side, as well.

    rick there's a stream not too far off from one of andy's caches where it's easy enough to wade across....

    U.S. citizens 19 years and older who enter the U.S. at land and sea ports of entry from within the Western Hemisphere will need to present government-issued photo ID, such as a driverís license as proof of identity, along with proof of citizenship, such as a birth certificate or naturalization certificate, or a passport. Children age 18 and under will be able to enter with proof of citizenship.
