People's Choice Awards

The Iowa Geocachers Organization hosts a People's Choice Awards Banquet each spring to recognize all of our great geocachers.

Our 2024 event will be held in Bremer County on April 21, 2024. This will give everyone an opportunity to revisit the location of the 2023 Hike-N-Seek and chase any caches you didn't have a chance to last fall! The event venue is:     

Sweet Water Welcome Center

100 N Main St.

Tripoli, IA 50676

Make sure you log your Will Attend on the event - GCAKNCF

If you want to visit town early, there is also a CITO Event that morning - GCAJR6Z
