G.A.G.B - News And Information


Recommended Posts

For the benefit of any people new to this forum the GAGB forum has a bit more than post everything in one place in its set up.

 

GSP despite this being the third most popular forum have never split it into sections taking the view that local forums do this better than they could.

 

All these forums can be found here :-

General Geocaching Related Topics

Where it all happens

 

Events

Trigpointing Related Topics

The place to discuss Trigpointing and related matters.

 

Landowner Permissions

Negotiations, approaches, agreements - let us know about them here

 

Regional Forums

Geocoins

Everything to do with geocoins

 

Technology Advice

A place where you can ask for advice about gps units, computers, or any tech problems you might have, caching related or not.

I don't know about others, but I find the GAGB forums a bit clunky and very time consuming to go through as there are so many categories etc...

 

I just don't have chance to go through all that, so I tend not to stop by....

 

Is there one or two main areas you can suggest as being "worth a look each day?"

Certainly :)

 

The one closest to this forum is the General geocaching forum it could do with a few newer posts.

 

If you enjoy the odd joke or just want to talk about your day then the Off topic forum is the place to go.

 

And if you want to just play the odd game there is always the Arcade

 

Beyond that the Technology forum is usefull for UK based cachers.

 

You can set up your profile (user account) to not show forums you are not interested in as well.

 

Of note you can create a forum account without becoming a member of the GAGB.

One thing I like about the GAGB forums is the "New Posts" link which only shows posts since you last visited across all forums so it's easy to see which are the hot topics.

Many of you will know that last May, by popular request, we separated usage of our forums from membership of GAGB the organization.

 

We've recently provided two new forums for GAGB Members only. At present we're discussing re-writing our constitution and possibly changing the name of our association in those forums. If you're a Member of GAGB and haven't seen those threads, you may want to take a look and have a say in the future of your association.

 

If you don't know whether you're a Member or not, take a look at the Announcement at the top of the General forum, which gives a link to where you can check, and join if you're not a member.

Bill, Chairman GAGB

The Forestry Commission have recently expressed concerns to the GAGB about the recent increase in the number of applications for permission for caches on land managed or owned by them in Dorset, and about the total number of caches now on that land.

 

If you're in the Dorset area, or have an interest in Landowner agreements generally, you may want to take a look at this thread. If you're a GAGB Member, as opposed to a Forum User only, you can also follow the committee discussion about this in the Committee Discussions forum.

Permission to cache from Ringwood Town Council

 

After a slight misunderstanding regarding the area to be covered in the permission, Ringwood TC have agreed to allow caching on their land along the lines of the Hampshire County Council agreement. Currently, the permission is confined to the Poulner Lakes area but, subject to prior consultation, they will consider any requests in respect of other areas within their control. The agreement has now been published on the GAGB agreement database and if any member wishes to set any caches on other Town Council land, then they should seek specific permission – I've agreed to be the contact to facilitate this and update the agreement as appropriate.

As announced on the GAGB forum, I'm sorry to announce that BillD is currently unwell and has decided not to stand for re-election. After a vote by the committee, NobbyNobbs has agreed to stand in as Chairman temporarily until the elections.

 

GAGB Chairman / committee Elections will be announced shortly.

We'll be migrating the GAGB to a new webserver on 17th Feb 2010 at 10pm GMT

 

Details will be posted here of progress.

 

Migration under way, forums are currently un-available.

 

Ok, DNS updates have been applied. Hopefully these will spread quickly.

 

Forums are on-line on the new server. You'll get a message if you are still seeing the old server.

There's a new section added to the GAGB forum where cachers can propose "A Day Out" and invite interested others to join them.

 

Or perhaps you'd just like to share some "Caching Memories" and add photos if you have them?

 

Don't forget that you can add details of events to the GAGB Event calendar and can also add a post to the Events section of the forum to remind cachers of what's happening soon.

 

Hope you can drop in to the GAGB site soon or just call by for a chat in the Chatroom during the evening.

to GAGB members, had an email from you last night to say that you had uploaded to the calender, the event for home coming scotland, mega 2014?? event. Thanks for the publicity. The next meeting is on March 5th, can we publish here the outcome and any further developments, as this is only a caching idea at the moment, which is moving very fast.

regards
