+jonboy Posted March 5, 2005 Share Posted March 5, 2005 (edited) I think the lists of cache owners with caches in the NYS parks should be forwarded to NYADMIN. There will be a tendency amongst some cache owners to say "Who put you in charge?". This request to obtain a permit will carry much more weight if it comes from someone with the power to enforce it. It will need to be made clear that failure to comply within a specified amount of time will lead to delisting and removal of the cache. None of us have the authority to remove a cache on our own, though some of us might be prepared to do so if delegated such authority. I think it is overly optimistic to think that most cache owners will comply without such compulsion. Many cache owners never visit a cache again after they place it. I do think that cache owners should be given specific instructions for each park, on who they need to talk to, whether or not they can apply by mail, and what the deadline is for that particular park. This type of information should also be gathered by volunteers, and forwarded to NYADMIN along with the list of cache owners. I think it is excellent that a version of the cache permit application has been posted as a PDF file on the LIGO website, but, as has been already pointed out, the version posted is not the same one that most State Parks are using. It would be nice to get a full version of both the application and the regulations and instructions posted on as a PDF file. The version I saw in the Fahnestock park office was on legal size paper, printed on both sides, printed in color, and the text was green. They only had one copy of this in Fahnestock, and were making black and white copies of it to hand out. I would be willing to contact the Fahnestock Office on behalf of other geocachers in order to clarify such questions as whether they will accept applications by mail, but they are really quite approachable in that office, and I think anyone could do it.
