2013 SLAGA Travel Bug Race FINAL RESULTS
Here are the final results of the 2013 SLAGA Travel Bug Race

A benefit of a premium SLAGA membership is eligibility for milestone awards for 100, 500, 1,000 and 5,000 finds. We also recognize premium SLAGA members for 10,000 finds. (Please note that a SLAGA premium membership is NOT the same thing as a geocaching.com premium membership.) To receive this benefit, you must (1) be a premium SLAGA member when you reach your milestone, and (2) notify SLAGA of your achievement. (Unfortunately, SLAGA has no method of determining milestones without this notification.) Milestone awards are typically presented at the next major SLAGA picnic following notification. The next opportunity for you to receive an award is at the Winter Potluck and Cabin Fever 2014 event (GC4VP25). My current list of premium SLAGA member milestone award qualifiers is:
500: 5 Lenks; MollyMal
1,000: Da Fab 4; Xteach&XlunchLady
5000: Quailman2; rainman-rwb
10,000: IBEW-RET; Jan03; RGS
Winter Potluck and Cabin Fever 2014
What's the cure for Cabin Fever? The SLAGA Winter Potluck, of course!

SLAGA 2013 Holiday Party December 4
As fellow cachers... you're probably used to some of your friends and family making comments about how you're not quite right. In celebration of this fact and in celebration of the winter holidays... we SLAGA folks are going to gather together to eat and enjoy each other's company... and do something that is undoubtedly right for one night.
Two dates this year coincide with being the "right" sort of days. By this I mean that the numbers making up the day, month and year portions of the date... also describe the length of the sides of a right triangle. The first of these occured on May 12th (5-12-13) and the second one will occur on December 5th. And it would therefore be right to celebrate on Thursday, December 5th. But as noted... we aren't quite right.
So on Wednesday, December 4th from 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. we will be gathering together at Golden Corral to do something right. We will be encouraging one another with holiday spirit and conversation while feeding ourselves (our stomachs will consider that right anyway).
This is also a great opportunity for us as cachers to discuss ways we can give back to the community that supports (puts up with?) our past time over this next year. If there's one thing a gathering of cachers is good at... it's thinking up with excuses to get back together some more for other reasons.
Please RSVP on the cache page, and keep your eyes on the SLAGA Facebook page and Freelist for more info as the event approaches.
Be good to our community and be good to each other. I hope to see you all there!
