Lab caches


What are LAB caches?

LAB caches are special type of caches, that could contain inovations and test new ideas to make geocaching even better. Their first appearance in Europe was at special Mega event in Prague "Skorabky" on 15th of December 2013. Later on, in February 2014 Groundspeak tested ideas of cachers and every Premium cacher got a chance to create and place LAB cache as part of the project "I LOVE GEOCACHING". In May 2014 Groundspeak implemented LAB caches to the statistics in limited amounts.
Nowadays, it is possible to find LAB caches only during those Mega or Giga events that have received permission from Groundspeak to create these unique and rare type of caches. The LAB caches should replace those created specifically for Mega or Giga events and would not be maintained afterwards.
