Are you a huge fan of Geocoins and Mega events? This one is only for the best and most committed of our fans - become a Founder Supporter of the 2022 West Midlands Mega event. We're selling Founder status for £100 each - but only until Mid 2020. Get in early and help us get our first round of funding in the bag!

Each Founder will get a special personal event ID card and lanyard - wear it to any of our 2020 and 2021 events and you can claim a free raffle ticket (come to a hundred of our events and you'll be quids in already!). Then at the event in 2022, each Founder will receive a special Founder Pack at the Mega site during Mega week. Each pack will have a unique Founders-only Geocoin and other great goodies only available to our best fans! But that's not the point, right? The point is, you want to be one of our most special and most focussed supporters, and you want to show, that you are a Mega 2022 Founder, right? So... go on, complete the contact form on our webpage (address below) including your real name and geocaching name and buy Founder status for just £100!

Don't mean to put a downer on a good event, but the security of asking someone to send you their full name and email address via a non-encrypted contact form in order to pay are  questionable.

 

Anyone who intercepts the details (easy to do) can quickly fire over a "here are my bank account details, pls send £100" email and almost certainly get the money which the sender will have no way of getting back.

 

IMO you should encrypt the page or provide an email address for *them* to contact you on.

That's not a webpage, it's a link to facebook . The text may be the website address, but the link itself takes you via faceplant rather than directly. Not a good idea, those of us with a major faceplant aversion just gave you a bad mark !

If you follow the text address , the contact form says

" Please make sure you include your real name, your geocaching name, and an email address we can contact you on. We'll get in touch to arrange payment, and thank you for your support. " So I'd expect there will be a secure method of payment , details of which will be sent, e.g. paypal or a bank account for the event (which they will have to set up to buy TBs hire the venue etc) so people can pay securely by online banking or post a cheque. We're not daft in the West Midlands ...
