+paul.blitz Posted June 2, 2003 Share Posted June 2, 2003 There is no doubt that a majority of cachers feel that there is a need for a national organisation to represent geocachers, in some form or another. For the moment, let's forget anything historical (eg GAGB). The question is: what should the "terms of reference" for a national geocaching organisation be? A few things to discuss maybe: - should it represent UK, GB, England, Wales etc? - how many people would be needed to run it? - should it pro-actively be promoting geocaching? - Should it be pro-actively promoting to landowners, with the aim of getting "general cache-placement approval"? - should it act as a "single & convenient point of contact" for caching enquiries (eg from both people wanting to go hunting, and landowners who find a cache)? - should it be promoting a single set of UK-wide (or GB-wide etc) "local recommendations" for cache placement? - should it be involved with cache approval? - what should it be called? You must all have many other thoughts ..... I would like this thread to be a positive one: if you do NOT agree that we need a national association, then this is NOT the place to discuss that: please start a new thread.
