What is the MEGA am MEER?
MEGA am MEER (english “MEGA at SEA”) is an event for geocachers. Geocaching is a hobby about finding containers at specific places and leaving a log in them. More infos are available on Wikipedia or geocaching.com.
Often, geocachers hunt for these containers alone or in small groups. Therefore they like to meet to discuss their hobby and other things. This is called an event, usually 20 to 60 people take part. Since the geocaching community grew in the last years, also larger events are organized where also geocachers from far away travel to. Such large events are called MEGA events, also the MEGA am MEER would like to become such an event. Geocacher from near and far meet in Bremerhaven to have a nice weekend together.
