Grab your GPS and your kids and join the Chase Firefighter’s Association for their Cache Bash.
This modern-day treasure hunt provides a unique adventure for any age. The association has hidden more than 25 new caches in Chase and surrounding areas, including a self-guided historic tour series. These historic caches will help participants see Chase as it was in the early years, and how it developed into the lively village it is today.
The sign-in for the event begins at 9 a.m. Sept. 26 at the Chase Fire Hall at 810 Okanagan Ave., and will run until 11 a.m. Participants can register at this time as well as meet other cachers. Coffee, tea and goodies will be sold, and demonstrations on how to find a geocache, as well as how to use the free geocaching application for smartphones, will be taking place. At 11 a.m. local historian David Lepsoe will be offering free guided history tours of Chase to those registered.
Cachers can roam the village in search of geocaches throughout the day, and are invited to return for the social at 3 p.m. in the Chase Fire Hall. A delicious by-donation BBQ will be available as well as games and information booths.
Tours of the firehall, trucks and equipment will take place as well as child-oriented demonstrations.
A silent auction will open at 3 p.m., and guests can try their luck at 50/50 tickets and door prizes.
Those who have registered for the Cache Bash will receive free admission into the Turtle Valley Band concert.
Tickets can be purchased by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, by calling 778-229-8124, or in person through a Chase firefighter. An earlybird discount is available for those who pre register.
