    13th Annual Texas Challenge

    A Geocaching.com Mega Event: GC4YE34

    March 13 - 15, 2014
    This is the 13th Annual Texas Challenge.

    Texas Challenge 2015 will be at the South Plains Fairgrounds Coliseum in Lubbock, Texas.

    The West Texas region is hosting the 2015 Texas Challenge.

    Registration Information
    Registration will open sometime between December 1st - December 25th 2014. We will update this closer to time!

    The Texas Challenge is an annual weekend load of events held by the Texas Geocaching Association. Each year, the responsibilities of hosting the 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 Texas Challenge weekend is centered around a grueling contest that pits geocachers from across the state in a friendly competition to see which region of the state can find the most caches 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.
