GeoWyrm's Geocaching Supplies began in 2010 as a simple concept to bring in high demand items for local geocachers. The demand became so high that the company went online in 2011 and has been rapidly expanding ever since. GeoWyrm's Geocaching Supplies is an official distributor for Groundspeak as well as resellers for Landsharkz, CoinsAndPins.com, Cache Advance and GeoSwag / Oakcoins. We enjoy our geocoins, so we also bring in geocoins from talented designers such as PHD Coins and ernie's. We proudly carry a variety of items produced by local talent. We are always on the lookout for something new, so if you have suggestions please feel free to contact us.
Shamus and Dawn (also known as GeoWyrm or The Wyrm's) are very active in the local geocaching community. In 2011 they helped plan WestCan1, "The Best of the Bad". It officially became Western Canada's first MEGA just after noon on July 16th, 2011. They have followed the WestCan legacy all over western Canada, from WestCan2 (Island Spirit 2012 in BC) and WestCan3 (Gold Country Poker Run in BC), WestCan4 (Living Skies in Saskatchewan), WestCan5 (Country Legends in Dauphin, Manitoba) and most recently, Sails, Rails and Tails (WestCan6) in Cold Lake, AB. Next up, Speedy Creek Stampede (WestCan7) in Swift Current, SK! We are very excited, stop by and say hi to us at our table there.
By 2012, in addition to the store, Dawn and Shamus became the geocaching liaisons to the City of Calgary. They have also taught geocaching classes all around the province, at local schools and youth groups as well as presentations to various levels of community organizations and government to integrate geocaching, environmental awareness and tourism. In 2013 they partnered with Calgary Public Libraries to celebrate their centennial by hosting geocaching 101 courses and helping place geocaches. They have led team building hiking and geocaching events, and set up treasure hunts for birthdays.
They still teach and host events occasionally, but have slowed things down to a pace more befitting life in the country compared to the hectic pace of city life. The ties are still strong to the various geocaching communities within Alberta, so you can usually catch them at one of the many events around the province.
Speaking of of travel, there are many fantastic GeoTourism destinations. We have been compiling a list of those in Western Canada, which can be found HERE!
