Become a volunteer!

The Mega needs volunteers for all kinds of tasks, for us to be able to make it a successful and fun event.
Volunteers are needed for example to direct traffic in the parking area, to help at the Info desk and to do a turn as Signal the frog, the geocaching mascot.

All volunteers are insured during the event under our volunteers’ insurance.

You can find a list of tasks and registration here.

Food & drink

There is a restaurant in the event area where you can get a variety of dishes, and snacks for the not-so-hungry. The “Ravintola Werstas” restaurant offer us their restaurant services.

During the day you can get a tasty soup lunch from 12.00 onwards. Both meat and vegetarian versions are available.

In the early evening you can take it easy for a while and enjoy a delicious evening meal among friends, before a series of tasks become available at checkpoints in the event area. As with the lunch, the evening meal includes servings of a variety of tasty dishes. During the course of the evening, between the checkpoint tasks you can enjoy refreshments up until midnight, when both the restaurant and the event area will close. The restaurant is licensed to serve alcohol.

Both the lunch and dinner menus will be published nearer the time of the event.

Advance sales of lunch and dinner meals will start soon here on this website. It will only be possible to eat at the restaurant with pre-booked tickets, so that the caterer can estimate the demand.
