Berkshire Geobash

New England's First and Only Continuous MEGA Event

FIRST TO FIND (FTF) FRENZY!


Are you ready to get FTF's while you vacation in the Berkshires?  For those cachers who like to come into town early, you will have many opportunities to collect FTF's, if you so choose!!  Some cachers have been known to stay up all night and day, for 3 days, just to be ready in a minutes notice of new caches published randomly around the County!


Of course this couldn't be done without the dedication of our cache placement committee and MadMin, our state reviewer!!  Many thanks to all who help with this endeavor!


The rules are simple - from Wednesday to Friday the week before Berkshire GeoBash, set your phone and/or computer to notify you of new caches published within a 50 mile radius of your accommodations in the Berkshires.  Be ready to leave any event, campfire, friends and family without notice when you get the notification.  Don't expect to see much of anyone as you try to fly to GZ and claim the FTF's.  


New this year, we will have a scoring system for the FTF Frenzy!!  There will be prizes awarded for first, second and third place winners!
