This past week Landsharkz hosted over 110 cachers at “Who Needs a Reason to Party?!” their Grand Opening event for Canada’s first brick and mortar geocaching store "The Sharkz Store".

We had a fantastic time meeting local cachers old and new, and hanging out with Martemous who is a Groundspeak Lackey and the Geocaching HQ Ecommerce Operations Manager. 

We had games with prizes for the geo-kids and the geo-kids at heart. Tieka the Canine Landshark was happy that a few GeoDogs came along and that so many cachers checked out her shiny new trackable Canine tag. We also introduced the community to our team of hard working employees, and special thanks go out to Christie (The Geo-Travelers), Brett (The GO! Team) and Amy for helping make this event a success!

Special mention goes to event volunteer cacher Finnegan’s Mama who surprised Mrs. Landsharkz by flying in from Red Deer for the event and helped out the entire day. 

Thank you everyone for coming out and celebrating with us, and thank you to the Esquimalt Fire Department, the Chamber of Commerce, and local businesses for their contributions as well!
