OIT Geocache Scavenger Hunt page title

Join us in a game of high-tech treasure hunting. Can you locate all of the OIT caches?

Instructions for GeoCache (and a FUN time) :D

  1. Sign the log book that is located at each Cache, give the date and leave comments
  2. Take one coin from each Cache you find and leave something behind if you wish
  3. Please return Cache to original state for others to find

The first 50 people to collect all three “O"  -  "I"  -  "T" coins can redeem them for a special prize at TechFest. Any participant is eligible to be entered in the grand prize drawing.

Turn coins in at the OIT booth at the UAF Wood Center during TechFest October 10-12, 2011.
