Make a Bollard Buddy Geocaching Event

Box in the woods labeled "Official Geocache"
Event Date
Wisconsin Rapids Campus

The Make a Bollard Buddy event was created to promote teamwork and community among geocachers. Beginner geocachers, experienced geocachers, and those just looking to see what geocaching is all about are welcome to attend. Getting more information about local geocaches and logging them is done on, where anyone can create an account for free.

There is an optional pre-event challenge to collect pictures of your geocaching name along with an identifiable feature from each of the four Junior Bollard cache properties. One Junior Bollard geocache is located on each of Mid-State’s four campuses.

If you choose to participate in this pre-event challenge, you can visit each site yourself, or you could enlist a partner or form a remote team to take pictures and collect information for each other. If you need a buddy, say so when you make your "will attend" log and use the electronic messaging tools on the Geocaching website to coordinate with each other. When you post your attendance log on the day of the event include your four pictures in the log.

Event geocache number: GCAC800
