Mt. Agamenticus Event Cache
Mark your calenders! The third? annual Mt. Agamenticus CITO Event Cache will be on 23 April 05.
Like the previous events here, this will be held rain or shine and include some clean up (this is a very clean place) and a one day only cache (short walk in the woods)
I had hoped to have a paperless "roundtable" or seminar, but the lodge does not open until the following week and I will be in Germany for a few weeks.
If anyone has any new ideas for the event or if anyone wants to help organize and/or own the event, let me know.
To Cito or Not to Cito...
That is a good question, Haffy.
I was even thinking that it is dis-service to list this as a Cito event, and was considering listing it simply as an event cache. I don't like the idea of taking credit for doing work and not really doing anything but having fun.
Here's a little history: The Mt A event started before I had ever heard of caching. The first year the I went, we did a fair bit of cleaning around the parking lot. The next year, I found a place that is not actually part of the park but, is private land and put a "one day only cache" there. The idea was for each person to clean a little of the mess. The problem is, though, it is so steep that it is too dangerous. Especially considering that even if it is not raining, it is most likely to be very wet that time of year. Last year, there was only a few candy wrappers and maybe a cig. butt of two.
Perhaps we should try to figure out what cache area needs CITO the most and have one there. I know of several that are in Maine that DO need cito.
The April date probably should be reserved for a real CITO event since it is part of the GC.com plan.
