+Sol seaker Posted March 18, 2015 Share Posted March 18, 2015 So some friends and I were discussing the value of long-time geocachers to the game. As I see it, they spread the word about geocaching better than anyone or anything. They help new cachers get into the game and teach them about the game. I know for myself, if I cache with newbies I always encourage them to sign up to get a paid membership to geocaching.com, which is a benefit to geocaching.com as a business, but it also helps newcomers with pocket queries, notifications and other benefits of a paid membership. Old timers put on events (most of the events around here are put on by old timers). At events, excitement and interest in geocaching spreads. I spent time with a newbie at a recent event. It was fun to share the joy of caching. The event was chock full of mainly old timers, but there were newbies there checking out the game. I could go on with this list, and I'll add some more later, but I want to give others a chance to answer this question. Of course newbies are very important to this game, we all know that, and you can start that thread. But this one is just about those of us who have been around a while. Quote Link to comment
