Geo Cache event kicked off in Roscommon, Ogemaw counties

WEST BRANCH – The O R BGeoTour kicked off this morning in front of the West Branch Area Chamber of Commerce. The event will take hunters to 30 locations around Roscommon and Ogemaw counties. It runs through tomorrow, May 21.

Theresa Ekdom of the Houghton Lake Area Tourism Bureau speaks at the Geo Cache kickoff in West Branch.

Geocaching is a type of treasure hunt where seekers use global positioning system (GPS) devises to find hidden caches. There is an option after finding the caches to “take an item and leave an item” from the cache box. And a log to sign saying you have found it

Participants need to register at geocaching.com. There will be a passport to download to keep track of the caches and code words. Find at least 28 of the caches, fill out the survey, and receive a collectible, trackable, geocoin. Find all 30 caches and receive your digital souvenir.

The Wrap-up event will be held May 21 at N 44° 29.997 W 084° 35.600 (The AuSable River Center in Roscommon) from 2-44 p.m. Those who have completed the tour can collect their geocoin at the event.

The event is sponsored by the Houghton Lake Area Tourism Bureau and the West Branch Area Chamber of Commerce.
