The date of the event is planned for October 16, 2021 (two weeks after Going Caching).

The pathtags and HoF ammo cans will be purchased posthaste (along with the 1st/2nd/3rd place ammo cans for Challenge).

HoF inductees will be inducted at Roundup if Challenge cancels.



Nominations open the second week of January and will close the second week of February.

Voting ends the Friday night of Challenge.



A new TXGA website is currently under construction (to be announced at a later date after it is finished).
