If you love a good treasure hunt and know how to use your GPS, then ASP GeoBash VIII is just the event for you. The event takes place on May 18, 2013, from 8 a.m. –8 p.m. at Camp Allegany in beautiful Allegany State Park.
A geocaching event is a gathering of people who enjoy searching for hidden treasures called geocaches, located all over the world, with a GPS device. Geocachers hike through a variety of terrain to find the caches. ASP GeoBash VII focuses on geocaches stashed inside the park, although there are many more located throughout Cattaraugus County.
This is a one-day mega event attracting more than 500 participants. Bring your whole family and enjoy a variety of activities including games, raffles, educational seminars, vendors, movies, and geocaching too. So come prepared for a full day of family-oriented fun! Other events are being planned for Friday and Sunday, so make it a weekend and reserve a campsite or cabin in Allegany State Park.
Registration is free the day of the event. No preregistration necessary. On-site food vendors will be available. You can find more event information at www.aspgeobash.org or www.geocaching.com.
