What's New/News Archives and History
From Mike Swaney (Greenback)
Over the past eighteen month I've been listening to fellow geocachers
and trying to understand what the geocaching community wants from
an organizational perspective. I've learned a lot and then during a
conversation with a few folks from Wisconsin the various learnings
came together into an idea, one I hope many of you will appreciate.
At GoGeocaching.com we embrace diversity recognizing that a diverse
group of people is more creative and productive. That's why we're
announcing our new Organization Partnership program. This new
program is intended to help different groups and organizations to work
together for the greater good of the sport of geocaching while retaining
and promoting their own independent identity.
In the near future you'll learn more about the opportunities for groups
and organizations to partnership with GoGeocaching.com and the
benefits which you'll receive through the Organization Partnership

Geocaching isn't all about the numbers yet many geocachers enjoy
keeping statistics; tracking the number of caches they've found, how
many different geocoin icons they've logged, how many DNFs they
have, the percentage of traditional, multi-staged, micro sized and on on.
To help you see where you stand compared to the rest of your state,
country and world GoGeocaching.com has obtained permission from
the Grand High Pobah to post links to cacherstats.com which contains
cacher rankings by country, by state and for the entire world. Visit our
Cacher Rankings page for more information.

History - January 1, 2009
GoGeocaching.com was born with a focus on working with the forest
preserve districts and events in the Chicagoland area.
Our very first event was Cheeseburgers in Paradise. This event
combined good food and good fun with a food drive for the Northern
Illinois Food Bank. Eighty-four folks turned out and we collected 476
pounds of non-pareshable food items for the food bank.
Cheeseburgers in Paradise was also our very first web page, it's
always fun to look back at the beginnings of a web site.
