UPDATE: Great news -- Our Dakota sweepstakes for cache creators has been expanded to include Canada as well as the United States. Thank you all for your great feedback!

052009_ROD_0200 As summer winds down, things are really heating up at In addition to looking for our first class of ambassadors, Opie and our OC crew just announced their biggest sweepstakes yet. First we gave out limited-edition geocoins, then we awarded chirp wireless beacons to lucky cachers. That was just the start. Now we're giving away Dakota handhelds to weekly winners throughout August. Starting Aug. 1 and going through Aug. 28, every 10 approved caches that you add will earn you an entry to win a Dakota 20 touchscreen handheld. While this specific sweepstakes is open to U.S. and Canadian residents, many of our international offices are cooking up exciting promotions to share with their respective countries as well.

OpenCaching-logoEntering the Sweepstakes is easy (click here for official rules), as every 10 approved caches you add at will give you a chance to enter. Once you’ve entered, be sure to check your inbox to find out if you’ve won. We'll notify each week's winner the following week. And by all means, feel free to try, try again. After all, publishing caches doesn't just push you closer to a chance at winning, it also gives your fellow cachers another chance to make great memories in their next outing. And if you're a diehard cacher who just loves telling their friends about this popular pastime, be sure to click here to apply to become an official Ambassador.

Opie-hiding-cache Of the countless emails we get from happy OpenCachers, their most frequent request is that more of their fellow cachers would list their geocaches on! Know a fun place to visit near your home? Hide a cache for others to find. Already have caches listed on another site? We provide a page to easily import those listings and let others discover your caches. Whether your importing your existing caches or creating brand new ones, geocachers everywhere will benefit as a wider audience gets exposed to your creativity and enthusiasm for caching. Good luck, and happy caching and creating!
