    Locationless Cache
    New deadline: December 31, 2021

    Community Celebration Events
    New deadline: December 31, 2021
    Geocaching HQ wants to allow flexibility for geocachers who schedule their Community Celebration Events, since this is a unique Event type. Event hosts will be allowed to host these events until December 31, 2021.

    Cache In Trash OutŪ Season 1
    New dates: March 1 - August 31, 2020
    Cache In Trash OutŪ Season 1 will be extended until August 31, 2020, so that Event owners can have more flexibility on when to host their Events and so cachers can earn the Season 1 souvenir. Season 2 will remain September 1 - November 30, 2020.

    Adventure Lab
    New deadline: August 31, 2020
    In response to COVID-19, Geocaching HQ is extending the deadline to August 31, 2020 for all Adventure Labs to go public.

    In response to COVID-19, Geocaching HQ is extending the deadline for all unpublished Virtual Reward 2.0 Caches to be submitted for publication to December 31, 2020. HQ will soon post this information on all unpublished cache pages. Feel free to share this information with your communities.
