How Can I Help?
We'd certainly love it if you can help by talking to your geo-friends about the event and coming along to any events that we organise between now and the mega, and encourage other geocachers to do the same. We, the organising team, are putting this event on for you, the Geocaching community, so it's really all about you!
This is going to be a huge event as it's a really significant year for the sport of Geocaching and we all have a lot to celebrate together.
Time to register, if you haven't already...
If you haven't already registered that you will be attending the event, please get onto it as soon as you can. The sooner the NZ Mega Team can get an idea of numbers, the better - there is a heck of a lot to organise when it comes to hundreds of attendees, registration packs and all sorts of goodies, not to mention all the games and other activities that need to be sized to suit the numbers (sometimes it is all about the numbers after all!)
And when it comes to registering, remember the best way to help out the team, and for this to be the best event possible, is to grab one of our premium Gold or Silver Supporter Packs. These are packed with great merchandise for you to enjoy during and after the event, and they are great value!
We're still massively on the fundraising band wagon - events like this are expensive, so to try and reduce the amount that the organising team has to dig into their own pockets, please take a look at the cool merchandise we have available at the online store and consider donating to the event and becoming a Friend of Mega.

Fundraising & Sponsorship
Events like this one are expensive, and while we as the organisers will undoubtedly pour a lot of our own hard-earned cash into putting this event on for the Geocaching community, for the love of the game, it is extremely helpful to have sponsors to help us out, and also for the Geocaching community to help out by purchasing event-related merchandise.
So if you, or a business you know, would like to sponsor the event then please get in touch with us and we can discuss how we can best create a partnership that provides value to the event, yourselves, and the Geocaching community.And finally, please check out the products we have available at our online store kindly hosted for us by our principal sponsor, geocoins.nz. Please take a look around the store as all sales at geocoins.nz benefit the NZ Mega 2020 event.
