    Hey! Well, that is good news if it is June the 6th. It won't be the first time I get everything all screwed up.

    Thanks

    I should add that there was some discussion among the Board members back in August about possibly moving the general membership meeting, but there was never an alternate date proposed or any general agreement by the Board one way or the other - only that most Board members thought it should not be a problem. The Standing Rules for the Board (which are basic guidelines for how we conduct business for things not explicitly covered in the Bylaws) state that “Every attempt will be made to schedule the Annual Membership Meeting so that it closely follows the close of the election,” meaning the annual Board election which ends on May 30.

    I have not heard anything more since August about having the meeting on a different date. I assume that the Events Committee is working on this and if they have a proposal for a different date, that it would be a topic for discussion in our next Board meeting on Januaruy 9th.

    I visited the NWA Cachers website today and saw that they are planning a CITO event on May 2. Perhaps that is the event you heard about, bluesybreeze?

    May 2nd and 3rd are the official CITO date set by Grounspeak. I don't think NWAC has any plans as of yet on coordinating a CITO event on those dates. It would be neat to see a bunch around the state though.

    The Flash Mob event sounds awesome! We would definitely try to attend one. It just doesn't get any cooler than geocaching and rubber duckies. I'll have that song in my head all night now.

    Maybe that's where I got it from. I'm gonna scrap the WWFM V event that I was thinking about hosting. Their event sounds like a 2 dayer and something that I would be more interested in. I'll plan another small event when there isn't so much going on. Maybe an Eat n greet in Feb or March in the River Valley somewhere.

    Do we have some sort of tentative schedule of events that we follow? Or a yearly calendar that events can be penciled in so others will know what is happening and where? Do some areas always have certain things at certain times? I'm asking because this is my first year at this and I'm a little lost and I don't think my GPSr is going to help me

    Here's two to start your calendar - the January Paris events and April Clarksville events Those seem to be the biggest re-occurring ones. I'm sure there are others that people can tell you about, but those two will get you started

    We always have the Paris event the 2nd Saturday in January. The Clarksville event has traditionally been the first Saturday after April 15th. That would make it Saturday, April 18th this year. I have not heard any news on a Clarksville event this year.

    Why couldn't you combine both events. Pick an area close to hold the flash Mob. I think you would get max attendance.
    Geocaching may be a sport, but it's also a way of life!
