+The Wombles Posted March 25, 2003 Share Posted March 25, 2003 I've yet to be accused of littering by anyone - and that includes all the "business people" that I work with. We've had very little trouble with caches getting trashed since we started placing caches in Sept 01 (a total of 43 so far). I won't tempt fate by explaining our proximity to Mod Ant Central (Avebury) and previous media coverage, but these have not impacted our caches. We could pretend that we don't exist and stay quiet, but the fact that there is already unprompted media interest shows that media articles will appear anyway. Do you want the UK spokesman to be someone you don't trust (no-one particular in mind here )? Don't you want the opportunity to guide this inevitable publicity? Why not turn this into an opportunity to show how "respectable" we can be and how we can therefore be trusted with blanket land approvals? The doubters are right that this will cause growth and that we may suffer "growing pains". In this scenario we have the opportunity to address the growing pains and turn them to our advantage: we can show our rate of growth, that this is a new and exciting sport which sponsors, land managers and the public should support.
