    Looks like permits may be required for Rsvl Parks now

    Looking around the new russellvillearkansas.org site, I stumbled upon this:
    http://www.russellvillearkansas.org/par ... -11-07.pdf

    Looks like geocaching may now require a permit for the Russellville Parks System. I'm not sure if there are any grandfathered in or not, but I did want to bring this up to everyone's attention.

    As far back as I can remember Russellville has always required a permit. You can turn them in at the Parks and Rec office at the Hughes Center on Parkway.

    I have been hearing a rumor that Hot Springs are in the talks about requiring permits. Any truth to that???

    I heard that from Gingerose, who has a friend that works for the HS parks. We'll see.
    Guess what?! I got a fever, and the only prescription...is more cowbell!!

    I got an email a few months ago from someone who works for the parks in Hot Springs that indicated that they were thinking about implementing permits. Not sure if anything has (or will) come of it...

    I talked to the P&R director in HS last summer about hiding a cache and she said something about permits but never got back with me on it again. She said they know about the caches already there but didn't indicate any position on them.

    Well........I didn't want too........but..........I guess I will......

    I work for the City of Hot Springs. I have for 9 years now. I will wear my uniform and show up at the Parks Dept office on Opera St. this week and ask a few questions.

    I already stirred up a hornets nest with the National Forest thing last year. I guess I will get Mrs Jean Wallace stirred up this year.

    What I heard was that the parks department was looking into placing guidelines about the geocaching not neccessarily permits. I am not sure what stage they are in with these decisions, since I have not spoken to anyone directly just indirectly (friend of my mom). I was told that the parks department thinks that for the most part geocachers are respectful of the parks but.....it might be a good idea, that a few geocachers be involved if guidelines are being decided.

    I do know that this person did give me permission to hide a recent cache (not at a park but an unrelated place.)

    I talked to Jean in November after trying to find "Hollywood Park Trail" which showed to be buried under bulldozer tracks obviously a victim of the trail expansion. She said then that they were working on a permit system for geocaching and if it would have been in effect they would have known about the cache being located there and could have moved it out of harms way. I know she is OK with caches in parks but probably just wants to know where they are. Sayitagain
