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.
“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.”
Adding to the excitement, the West Bend Area Chamber of Commerce is hosting a new sweepstakes, the “Four Seasons GeoTour Giveaway.” Two lucky entrants will win a prize package to help them start earning their Four Seasons GeoCoin. 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.
Fans of Discover West Bend can enter now through August 22 on Facebook or at visitwestbend.com.
