May 14: Warminster Geocaching Event Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting game played throughout the world by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices. The basic idea is to locate hidden outdoor containers, called geocaches, and then share your experiences online. Geocaching is enjoyed by people from all age groups, with a strong sense of community and support for the environment. There are hundreds in the Warminster area. During the event, we will concentrate on the existing 20 or so in the Munro and Warminster Community Parks. See http://coord.info/GC2NNVW
