We really enjoyed Calgary’s fourth Cache and Release (CaR for short) event! CaR was inspired by Canada’s Capital Cachers’ very successful Go and Get ’em (GAGE) series. The event consists of a 24 hour cache-finding marathon culminating with a gathering at a family-friendly location for refueling, story-telling, voting and prize distribution. We participated in all three stages: hiding (GC1YZNZ – Got Hair? You Won’t After This One!, GC1YZQK – Orange Ya Glad?, and GC1YZVQ – A Bird’s Eye View), finding (47 CCARS09 + 3 other caches = 50 caches in 24 hours) and attending the wrap-up event.
