Cache Dash Splash II

What: This will be the second geocaching event, taking participants all along the Long Beach Peninsula. There will be a chance to meet fellow geocachers at a pizza party and a sendoff breakfast.

When: Sept. 16-18.

Where: Chautauqua Lodge and Convention Center, Long Beach. Check-in will be at Veteran’s Field.

The hunt: For those new to geocaching, it is a sort of treasure hunt using GPS units to take participants to specific locations. Organizers said they will have 50 geocaches set up for the event.

There will be five “mini adventures” that will show off some of the highlights of the Long Beach Peninsula. Stops will include Lewis and Clark National Park, five Washington State Parks on the peninsula and Willapa National Wildlife Refuge.

Registered participants will receive a passport. As they locate caches and fill out their passport, they will be eligible for prizes.

Cost: $12 for adults and $6 for children 12 and younger if you want event materials. Searching for the geocaches is free.

Information: cachedashsplash.com. People already registered on geocaching.com can find more details by looking up the event at GC6CZ0C.
