Let's Talk About Events!
07 January 2020
Let's talk about events baby, let's talk about you and me, let's talk about everyone in the geocaching community...
So recently published were two great events to add to the calendar, particularly if you are going to be around Auckland or the North island.
Firstly coming up at the end of February is Leap Year weekend, and the NZ Mega Team has organised a chill out camp-out weekend event at Awhitu Regional Park - that's on the south western shores of the Manukau Harbour. The park features a number of caches, including one out on an island that can be reached on foot at low tide, and a couple of swimming beaches at high tide. Come for the day or camp out for the weekend!
With it being the year 2020, there will be a number of Community Celebration Events (with a special event icon) held around the country, and the NZ Mega Team have organised one to commemorate the very first geocache hidden outside of the US - GC45 "First New Zealand". This event will be held very near to GC45's historic location on its 20th anniversary, May 12th. There will be some cool surprises revealed at this event, so if you can be there, don't be square!

It's that time of year again... The elves have been busy, the tree is up and the presents are piling up underneath it. But if you need any last minute gift ideas for your geo-friends and family, we have some suggestions for you!
In this issue we also talk about the limited release of a new Locationless Cache that will be available for a logging throughout the 2020 calendar year, if you visit a Mega or Giga event during 2020.
And finally, the NZ Mega Team hope that your 2019 was an awesome year and that you achieved everything you set out to, and that 2020 is even better (although we are pretty sure it will be and that NZ Mega 2020 will be a big part of that!)
Merry Xmas and Happy new year from Chris, Ron and Harsha - the NZ Mega Team!

So, how committed a geocacher are you? Pretty committed right? Well, check out this issue of the NZ Mega 2020 newsletter to find out just how committed to the NZ Mega cause one particular geocacher is. Crazy? Perhaps, but also a great guy who we will be warmly welcoming back for another NZ Mega next October!
Also in this issue we are calling out to all of you - to let us know your suggestions for interesting seminars or workshops that you'd like to see at NZ Mega 2020, and also if you'd like to volunteer to lead or assist with the running of one.
There's so much happening at NZ Mega HQ at the moment, you probably wouldn't believe what we already have organised (certainly one of the team's credit cards believes it!)... but more on that another time!
Until then, hopefully see you at our Christmas in the Park event, and merry xmas!
Christmas in the Park
28 November 2019
It's that time of year, when Christmas fever makes everyone go just a little bit crazy! So why not take a deep breath, sit down and relax for a moment, and what better time and place to do that than with some geocachers and the NZ Mega Team, in One Tree Hill Domain on the 13th of December. Yes, we realise it's a Friday, but we promise it will be a nice and relaxed Friday the 13th!
Come along and join in the secret Santa - all you need to do is bring along a small gift and drop it into Santa's sack. There will be some snacks provided but feel free to bring something along to share, and there's a fantastic fish and chips shop just up the road. See you there and merry xmas!
And speaking of Christmas, what better gift for that geo-loved than a Gold or Silver Supporter pack for the mega!...
