Golden Ammo Can in United Kingdom and Ireland Posted November 18, 2010 I feel that I have to reply to Write of Mane’s post as they seem to be questioning my integrity in all of this. It has surprised me that they have now chosen to reply after ignoring several emails this morning regarding this matter from me. That apart, the post so far has given some feeling regarding the wishes of cachers who have and are involved in this issue. Maple Leaf explained the origins of the Ammo Can very well in her post but this seems to be lost by W&M I was unaware that the can had been to more than one event, the only one I was aware of was the launch event of Mega Wales so very appropriate being still a recognised MEGA related Event, the Second was on the Friday, the day before Mega Scotland which was also a MEGA related Event. I am unsure what kind of underhand motive W&M have me down for, but if they actually read all the post including mine they would see that I have simply asked questions and not expressed my opinion either way I recognised that others in the Caching community would have concerns and opinions regarding this and simply facilitated the discussion. W&M you inferred that I have some ulterior motive for this, my wife and I were probably the most active supporters of Mega Wales, Lilian raised 70% of the monies currently sitting in the Mega Committee account; I have clocked up thousands of miles promoting and fund raising for Mega Wales. It was only due to some serious health issues that we resigned., I do however believe that the Golden Ammo can should only be for Mega Events it was created to be unique and you seem perfectly happy to ignore everyone and spoil that. Is it now your committee’s policy that nobody may ask questions and you are not answerable to the caching community? Tony While we did not respond in person to your emails this morning, another member of the committee did very adequately. There would be no point in giving duplicate answers: your questions were answered. The aim of our posting here was to to show that whatever interpretation you put on the Can's objective, it had failed miserably to achieve it and there has been inconsistency over which events it should attend. The logging record makes this very clear. This alone gave the present committee grounds to review the objective and the means of achieving it successfully. After checking with the originators, we thought we were acting in the best interests of the geocaching community and are frankly surprised at some of the reaction, although we are pleased to note that it has encouraged some retrospective logging and uploading of images. In view of the comments made here, the Can will not now make an appearance in Devizes (sorry to anyone who was looking forward to seeing it there) and the matter will be reviewed at our next committee meeting. It would be nice to see a wider selection of the geocaching community express their opinions on the subject on this thread to aid our deliberations.
