A Note of Thanks from our President, Joanne aka Pogie124
SCAR X - hard to believe its been 10 years of SCAR-- I think I was at every one but 2008-according to hurlyanne as she researched all the stats for the Legacy caches (and did an amazing job on them I must say).
Thanks to Rina and Dallas (Sask_girl & Novy) for starting SCAR--it has become a tradition for Saskatchewan cachers and something everyone looks forward to every year!
Thanks to all the prize donors, the list is on the SAGA website.
Thank you to Connie (PrairiePedals) and Brian (McSpy) for taking on the task of buying and cooking the food for the barbecue-- well done and very tasty!!!
Thanks to everyone who brought salads and desserts---there was a lot of food at this year's event!!!!
Thanks to my fellow board members for without your volunteering and helping out this event would not take place!!
And lastly, Thank you to each and everyone that took the time to hide caches for SCAR. With out the hides, we wouldn't have anything to find.
With over 180 new geocaches placed for SCAR X-everyone should have plenty of choices for geocaching over the summer months!!! Cache on!!! See you on the trails!!!
The SAGA executive would like to extend thanks to everyone who participated in this year's SCAR event and helped to make it great! Remember that you can log the event cache as attended if you participated in any component of the weekend: hiding caches for the event, seeking caches during the allotted time period, or attending the barbecue!
We are also looking for feedback about this year's/past year's SCARs to help us in planning for next year's event (which we anticipate will be at the end of May again).
Submit your comments to the Executive on the form at the bottom of this page SAGA Executive
We hope to make the 10th Saskatoon Cache And Release event the best one yet!
Thank you to pilot172 for a well organized CITO event which was held on April 16. We had many in attendance to make light of the work and to have a few laughs as well. Check the photo album for a few images from the day.
We will be having another CITO in the fall so plan to be there!
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU
The SAGA executive would like to extend thanks to everyone who participated in this year's SCAR2016 event and helped to make it great!

Saskatoon’s premier geocaching event is soon approaching! On May 27-28 we will be hosting a 24-hour geocaching marathon called Saskatoon Cache and Release, or SCAR. Every year local geocachers participate by hiding geocaches, finding geocaches, and attending the associated events. We finish off with a barbecue out at Floral School, which also includes prizes and a 50/50 draw. This year we are also planning some fun activities for children at the barbecue.
News ALERT!!!! SCAR 2015 is officially on! June 19th-20th get your caches ready and get ready for 24 hours of fun, food and friendly competition.
SCAR 2014 It's on and you will make it great this year. It's always been largely about the caches that are put out for everyone to find so keep it up guys! This year there are no restrictions on cache types but we are insisting that all caches be available to all cachers. That means NO premium member caches please. After the event feel free to change them but not till after thank you.
April Steak Supper Fundraiser event Steak night fundraiser was a success!! Special thanks to prize donators Redmax & Belfastlass, Rider_Fans, Pawistik, Sask_girl and Sask_Travelbugs! Thanks to all who came out and supported SAGA your tickets help fund events like SCAR 2014, the Christmas Event and the re-issue of the much coveted 2007 Saskatchewan Geocoin.
