    Default Are you trying to get more people?

    When I mentioned that you can drop TB's off to me at the MPBN auction, someone wrote that we should talk about Geocaching Maine on the air as a way to get more members. If that is truly a goal, then you guys should consider a donation for next year! In about 2 weeks Sandy Dunlap will start to look for items for next year. It has to be an item worth $60.00 or a group of identical items with a total value of $60.00. You can write your own 45-second copy if you want. Some things to donate might be a daypack with caching necessities; a new GPS-r; 6 1-year premium memberships to this site; or geocoins. The rest of us could chip in a little toward the cause, or have a fundraiser to do get money for it. The next auction is a year away so there is plenty of time!

    I have introduced my boss at the radio station to geocaching. He found two micros (and screamed his head off both times, so we will be working on THAT! ) Anyway, does the Boothbay register TB qualify for radio as well as print?

    We always encourage new geocachers!!!! The more the merrier!!! GeocachingMaine is an informal organization but I would help promote it by helping anyway I can.

    Happy Caching!!!!!

    I'm guessing she means media coverage for the bug.

    I emailed them to make sure. The instructions say to travel anywhere and especially to meet newspaper reporters, but I bet a radio reporter would be ok too, in a pinch. Only one problem - my child is grown and I don't got grandkids! So I need a family with one or more kids to go caching with, within 30 miles of Lewiston-Auburn. I'd bring a cassette deck and tape the hunt, then maybe sit around and ask a few questions. Does anyone know anyone????

    I responded in the affirmative.

    You could always bring Hiram and his inner child along for an interview . . . it may be a bit like interviewing Robin Williams and Sybil though.

    Well, the TB is once again MIA. We'll do the story anyway!
