Annual Geocache Desert Bash at Cattail Cove State Park on March 9

Cattail Cove State Park hosts the 7th Annual "Geocache Desert Bash" on Saturday, March 9, 2013 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The "Geocache Desert Bash" begins at 10 a.m. with a brief history about Global Positioning System (GPS). How GPS was conceived and the etiquette that goes along with the sport will be discussed.  To participate, attendees should bring their GPS unit with them and have a basic understanding of how their GPS unit works.

Afterward, attendees are invited to treasure hunt to find more than 20 geocache sites.  There will be hidden caches on various trails for hikers, along with several sites along the shoreline, and even a couple of sites dedicated to those who may be wheelchair bound. The Park encourages responsible geocaching practices in all natural settings, including limiting graffiti, digging, trash, illegal off-road vehicle use, vandalism, or caches near archeological sites or commercial use.

Geocaching began in 2000 after the Defense Department stopped scrambling the signals beamed to GPS receivers from military satellites, making it easier for recreational users to find specific locations.  It has since grown in popularity for both families and corporate groups. "Geo" for geography and "cache" for hidden stash provides a fun opportunity to enjoy and explore the outdoors using a (GPS) receiver.
