  4. Have just ordered two silver and two gold finish. Hope to the railway is back to normal service soon. Regards Daphne + Colin
  5. Whay do some cachers write a note when dropping TB's. All you have to do is refer to it it your main log. Then scroll down the page highlight the TB you are dropping and submit the log. A lot easier than writing the log submitting it and then write the note and submit again. Perhaps I am missing something?
  6. We will be brining two display boards, courtesy of QinetiQ.
  7. We were going to ask that! See you both next weekend at B-O-A. Daphne + Colin
  8. Hi We wonder if any one in forum land can help us. Our trusty Garmin 12 no longer downloads from GSAK . It tells us that it cannot innitiate COM 1. We have tried another GPS a Garmin 72 and it downloads correctly. This is the 2nd time our GPS 12 has done this. Has anyone else had this problem? Last week working OK this week nothing. Should I send it back to the service centre? Which I think is in Romsey Hampshire. Any help gratefully received.
  9. Hi Great idea, please put us down for two coins. Hope you get enough interested.

It is the only sport that we can participate in on a level playing field (so to speak). Many many thanks from Daphne + Colin.
