12th Annual Midwest Geobash - July 21-24, 2016

We are updating our website software for 2016!  The new site with the new forums is now up!  Sadly, we had to let go of the past, our new forums are fresh.  Like new-fallen snow.  For you to go make, uhm, electronic snow angels?  Well, maybe we took that analogy too far.  Anyway, pardon any dust and please report any issues you encounter by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  Our new registration module is in progress, but we believe registration will open around April 1st-ish (no joke) depending on when the software is ready.  So keep an eye on facebook and our newsletters for an update on registration opening.  Whenever we open, we'll have squatter's rights as usual for the first week and great discounts on swag for early supporters. 

We are actively fleshing out the schedule.  If it's even listed on the site yet, it is VERY tentative.  Don't make any plans based on it right now!  :)

We are also happy to welcome Khan "The Conman" Hollis and Chris "Shydog" Baker to the advanced planning team.  You've probably heard the advanced planning team referred to as "The Big Three" in the past but starting in 2016 we have expanded to spread the load.  They are on the This email address is being protected from spambots.
