The GeoVenture 2020 committee is made up of a collection of geocachers from various backgrounds, and a diverse set of skills. We are all frequent event attendees and a number of us regularly travel for Mega events. If you run into us at events, we’d love to talk about how GeoVenture 2020 is coming along!
Recently changed from Moneydork to Trigger_Fish in the geocaching world, Wayne is well known to many sitting high on the total find count for both Australia and his native New Zealand. Formerly a New Zealand reviewer, Wayne is the chair of the GeoVenture 2020 committee as well as the current President of Geocaching SA. Based in the Riverland, his work requires extensive travel throughout the state, providing a constant supply of new caching grounds!
Heather started in 2015, but has already racked up in excess of 10k finds. Known as hevwalker, Heather is the current Secretary of Geocaching SA, a role she took over just before GeoVenture 2020 was proposed. Heather splits her time between the Adelaide Hills and Millicent in the South East, making her role for the GeoVenture 2020 committee especially helpful.
Sandi is our local caching representative in Millicent, where she is based, and goes by the handle scramping. Sandi’s local knowledge and connections has been essential in acquiring local support for GeoVenture 2020, and her exceptional eye behind the camera has provided the majority of the images seen in our website and promotional material.
Heidi is one quarter of Team Scoobster, and is well known to South Australian geocachers, having helped run the annual Christmas event for nearly a decade. She also has experience running Mega events, having been on a sub-committee of Oz Mega 2014 in Murray Bridge. Her extensive industry knowledge of the entertainment industry is invaluable in planning and booking acts. Team Scoobster were also the creatives behind our mascot, Dan the Tiger.
One of South Australia’s early geocachers, having signed up in January 2002. It’s almost impossible to go geocaching in SA and not find a Freddo cache, with over 900 hides. He spend four years from early 2013 onward as the ANZ Earthcache reviewer. His cache Sitting Down on the Job in front of Government House, near the North Terrace cultural precinct is the states most visited with just shy of 2000 finds. Spots 2 through 4 in that list are also occupied by Freddo caches. Monty is handling grounds and other tasks, and is also going around for the second time having also been involved with Oz Mega 2014.
Handling the IT side of things, particularly website and basic graphic design, and known as RideTheGeoWalrus (an obscure Futurama reference), Peter has been caching since 2012. Highlights have included the most favored web cam cache in the world outside Abbey Road Studios, as well as caching in and around the World Heritage Angkor Wat temple complex in Cambodia.
A relative newcomer on the geocaching scene, Hillary is assisting with volunteer management.
