The CITO had 45 teams sign into the log book, 66 people in total.

FTF Prizes

There were a total of 20 FTF prizes handed out, as well as many additional donated prizes that were raffled off at the end. It is unfortunate that we were unable to have enough prizes for everyone, but at least we had a good number.


Many thanks to the sponsors of this event who donated prizes!




Skifast (two geocoins)

Tulameen Turtles (two geocoins)

And eveyone else who donated prizes!

Cache Placers

Our hats go off to everyone who helped place geocaches for the event! In particular, I would like to acknowledge the following cachers who went above and beyond. Without their help this event would not have been the success that it was.

And last but not least, thanks to everyone who came to the event. We hope we can do this again next year!
