The local newspaper did an article on the recent event my wife (ddkds) and I hosted here in Paris. The article has caused interest in the community about geocaching. I have someone come up to me almost everyday to ask me about geocaching or how the event was.
I recently went to speak to the Booneville Rotary where there are very few cachers and the closet cache is currently 19 miles away (ATCF). The talk with the Booneville Rotary was so popular that I have been asked to speak to the Paris Rotary Club soon.
I was also contacted by the local Boy Scouts (Pack 41) and asked to speak to them last night. I used a Power Point presentation (thanks nonnipoppy), a stocked ammo can (one recently given to me by cachemates), and my knowledge of geocaching to tell the scouts as much as I could about it.
Many were interested and I had a lot of positive feedback. There was also a man there who is with our local U.S. Forest Service Office who provided me with a copy of their permit. He just bought a GPS and I hope he joins our ranks. He was very positive about it as well.
