Geocaching in the Great State of Texas

What is the TXGA Texas Challenge?

The TXGA Texas Challenge is an annual weekend load of events held by the Texas Geocaching Association. Each year, the responsibilities of hosting the TXGA Texas Challenge rotates to a regional team to organize the majority of the weekend. If you have ever wanted an excuse to escape for a weekend, and get out and geocache a new place with a bunch of other geocachers from across the state, this is it.

The TXGA Texas Challenge weekend is centered around an exciting contest that pits geocachers from across the state in a friendly competition to see which region of the state can accumulate the most points during a 4 hour time crunch. The winning regional team takes home the coveted Golden Ammo Can.

The whole weekend is non-stop geocaching goodness gobbed greatly with games and goodies. Trackable trading is a major activity, as well as trail story swapping and vendor swag buying. You will never get an opportunity in Texas to geocache with so many other geocachers at once.

How can I participate in the next TXGA Texas Challenge?

Participation is easy. All you have to do is say you want to play when you register for the event. Registration for the event will be available through this site closer to the event. You may also want to check with your regional group or local geocachers on how to join a team.
