More Publicity for Geocaching
The JAKES Event in Cotter, AR. on 9-11-04 brought in even more interest in geocaching to Arkansas. While the crowds weren't as large as anticipated - there were as many adults there to find out about geocaching as were there for the other events. We personally know of 3 people that have joined gc.com as a direct result of the event; as well of 4 that have joined since the newspaper article came out on 9-6. And 2 more that plan to join as soon as they have access to their computer.
Add to that, 1 nice property owner that contacted Harleyhogs after the article to offer use of her large acreage for placement of caches!
The newest publicity in our area is Gaston's White River Resort http://www.gastons.com/news/events/ online newsletter mentioning the caches that Greg and Christy and Bob and I put out there.
Back to the JAKES Event - an overwhelming number of cachers contributed to the great success of this event and you all deserve the thanks of the geocaching community! I know you have our deepest gratitude!
