With the help of geocachers from around Alberta, Western Canada’s BADDEST Mega Event is being held in the Canadian Badlands on July 16th, 2011!!!
GC2GA1J Best of the Bad Mega Event (Westcan1)
The Canadian Badlands in Alberta are like no other place on earth. They are home to the world’s most extensive dinosaur bone beds, badlands, hoodoos, and a world-class museum that shelters a 75 million--year old legacy, The Royal Tyrell Museum. From prehistoric reptiles to First Nations to early settlers, through ranching, coal mining, fossil fuels, archaeology and wind farms… let the region’s natural and cultural history unfold before your eyes! The Best of the Bad (WestCan1) will highlight the region like never before. Once you see what’s here you’ll want to come back again and again.
First and foremost, a Mega Event is planned by geocachers for geocachers. Best of the Bad Mega Event is no different and a tremendous opportunity for geocachers from around the world to celebrate the game and sport of geocaching. The caching here is amazing, the communities are welcoming and laid back; relax and experience the breath-taking badlands while you visit with fellow geocachers. Join us in Three Hills, Alberta next summer with old friends, make some new friends and swap some BAD stories from the trails.
There is plenty in the works for the weekend and the week leading up to the Best of the Bad Mega Event, so book your holiday time soon! From a brand new GPS Adventure Maze from Minotaur Mazes, events in surrounding communities, kids events & activities, live theatre, museum excursions, workshops, guest appearances from Jeremy Irish and Signal the Frog, to a big ol’ BBQ Beef dinner, and of course, loads of caching; including a Cache and Release, Geocaching Touring Routes, an Adventure Route and a Power Trail.
