Hello neighbors!

For those who haven’t heard, we’re having a Mega event!!

Maritime Mega II – Caching the Capital (GC3QME4) will be held in Fredericton, New Brunswick on Saturday, July 20th, 2013. It is the first Mega Event held in New Brunswick and we, the MM2 Organizing Committee, are very excited to be hosting and bringing you to our wonderful caching city.

We will be having satellite events starting Thursday, July 18th so you may want to plan ahead and come early. Try your hand at Funky Bowling, take a kayak or canoe trip down the St. John River, spend the morning at Clay Café painting your own artwork or have a blast lazily tubing down the Nashwaak River. We’ll be having a complimentary BBQ (donations will be accepted for the Community Kitchen) and a free concert in Officers’ Square….lots to do and see before the big day, not to mention the tons of caches to find!

The most important thing to remember is that you need to pre-register by May 20th to secure your personalized nametag and lanyard, event bracelet, swag bag, event geocoin and t-shirt. By pre-registering you may also purchase the boxed lunch and/or buffet supper we will have on-site at the event and attend all the workshops and games. While you may attend the event for free, why miss out on all the goodies, fun and prizes?

Visit our website, www.maritimemega.com for more information on events, schedules, news updates, accommodations and things to do. Visit our store to purchase pre-registrations, event coins and t-shirts or meals.

We’re only an hour away from the border at Houlton and an hour and a little bit from Calais so grab your passports, GPSrs, geo-bags and buddies and come enjoy our maritime hospitality!

If you like challenges for coins, we have a couple for you. The Fredericton Geocaching Tour consists of 30 caches that will take you all over the city of Fredericton. Find 10 of them, get a wooden nickel, find 20 of them, get a Pathtag, find all 30 and get the wooden nickel, the Pathtag and a beautiful, locally produced, trackable, pewter geocoin. The FGT can be done in one day but you will be going non-stop from morning to night. It’s much more fun to take 2 or 3 days to do it. Check here http://www.tourismfredericton.ca/en/...Geocaching.asp for the City’s information on the FGT and to get your passport and get the Bookmark of the FGT caches here http://www.tourismfredericton.ca/en/...Geocaching.asp.

The March of NB 104th is a series of caches that follows the route taken, by foot, of the 104th Regiment from Fredericton to Kingston, Ontario during the War of 1812. More than 30 caches have been placed in New Brunswick, along the St. John River, following their route. Find 15 or more of them and you will receive a trackable geocoin to commemorate their feat, and yours!

As you can see, we have plenty for you to do. Come visit us, stay a while, cache a while and enjoy Maritime Mega II – Caching the Capital.

We hope to see you in Freddy in July!
