WEST BEND, Wis. (July 14, 2014) – The West Bend Area Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce the launch of its very own geotour! The home of the annual mega-event, the West Bend $1,000 Cache Ba$h, now boasts the West Bend Four Seasons GeoTour, hosted on Geocaching.com. The tour is made up of 20 brand-new caches and takes cachers on an exciting adventure through the historic city. The geotour is perfect for any season, solidifying geocaching in West Bend as a year-round sport.

Geotour participants can start by downloading a passport online at visitwestbend.com/geocaching or picking one up at the West Bend Area Chamber of Commerce. For each cache and code word uncovered, as well as for each meal and overnight stay purchased, participants will receive points, logged on their passports. Once they reach 25 points, they will receive a limited-edition Four Seasons GeoCoin. Log on to geocaching.com/adventures/geotour/west-bend-four-seasons for a list of all the caches.

Limited-Edition Four Seasons GeoCoin

“The geotour is a fun, new way to explore West Bend, see all the sites and really experience the flavor of the city,” said Craig Farrell, Executive Director of the West Bend Area Chamber of Commerce. “At the end, you’re rewarded with a unique and collectible coin that will always remind you of your geocaching adventure here, the Geocaching Capital of the MidwestTM.”

Prizes include overnight stays at the Hampton Inn & Suites and the Country Inn & Suites, $100 in gift certificates to West Bend businesses, $50 to Geocaching.com for a premier membership and an official geotour passport.
