Why you should support West Oz Geocaching
West Oz Geocaching would like to continue to grow and increase the events we provide our community after the recent success of WAGB, IGD and GIFF events.
Our aim is to provide more events taking our community to a variety of locations, to have new experiences and provide opportunity for the caching community to mingle and meet each other.
Our community has provided some great feedback on recent events and we would like to introduce more activities with more variety, but to do this we will need your support!
The committee is committed to putting on great events for our community whilst being financially responsible. We are a non profit organisation and all money received through memberships and sponsorships we put back into this community through events.
We would also like your support to upgrade our current website to increase our profile with our community members, potential sponsors and potential new members. We would also like a new website to be tablet and phone friendly so that you can check in with us at anytime no matter where you are.
In order for us to provide more, we need our community to support our efforts, supplementing the committee's efforts to partner with sponsors and businesses. We have a range of ways you can support this great organisation with the ability to contribute as little or as much as you want. The great news is the way we can contribute is connected to geocaching!
