Big event to celebrate

25. years of geocaching

Let us meet in Prague for a big celebration

May 1 is the anniversary of the end of "selective availability", which made geocaching possible.

It's a public holiday (Czech Republic and Germany, for example), and in 2025 it falls on a Thursday - allowing visitors a convenient way to travel to Prague for a long weekend.

Selective Availability was an intentional degradation of public GPS signals implemented for security reasons. When selective availability was enabled, this added 50 meters of error horizontally and 100 meters vertically to GPS signals.

The main day of celebration will be Saturday 3 May - the anniversary of the first geocache.
