I don't know if anybody has been following the CITO events for this year but Delorme has stepped up and decided to be the sponsor of Geocachings CITO this year on April 19th and 20th. Maybe this would be a good time to start thinking about a CITO for your area of the state of Maine. I realize that with all the snow around it's hard to imagine having a CITO on that particular date but a CITO can be anytime of the year.

I have been actively involved with a few CITOs down here already and thoroughly enjoyed all of them. We have made a big difference in the parks and such in the area and hope that you folks up in Maine can decide to do some good there as well. Being in Maine I think you could get some good support from Delorme as well. Hope to hear from you guys and take some intiative to clean up the environment around your area. Nothing wrong with some GOOD PR for a change and we as geocachers can surely make a difference.

At the 1st release, just like the Garmin Colorado is undergoing now, they had a few issues but they are pretty good about listening to the public and have made great strides to correct the issues that they had. The PN-20 can be bought on Ebay for around $250.00. Tiger GPS has the bundle for $350 with the $50.00 rebate. That includes the Topo maps and 1GB card and card reader,not a bad deal.

So...they call me the environmentalist in the group, but guess what...I've never been to a CITO event! Hiram's been to two (I think)...so...maybe this year will be the year...?:rolleyes:

Why don't you come on up to Brewer on say the 17th of May. I think I can find something for you to do. Like this (http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=5ede4aa2-5be8-4d3f-99d1-deb0c57faa37) for instance.

In your cache description it says..

"All interested can meet at the posted coordinates at 8:00AM on 5-19-06 for coffee and donuts."


You do mean 05-17-08 right?

Looks like a good CITO event planned...

Apparently I have cut and pasted this for 2 years and you're are the first one to catch it. As your prize you may come to Brewer on 5-17-08 and I will buy you coffee and donuts.:p:rolleyes:;):cool::D

Speaking of fishy - it's fun to remember here my first CITO in Brewer - 5/2006! I had not idea what to expect but went with Francis Family and had a super time.:)

Even released a fish TB - one of my first ones - Hollora's Blue Fin Helper - and that little fish has traveled over 9,800 miles....;)...and all carrying the CITO message........:D

Now, I do clearly remember the coffee and donuts were ....... hum, how would you say this.......compliments of ........:eek:

Hey, who cares - we are all out there together - doing our little bit for the Earth. Hope to see a lot of you there!:D
