    With this said I agree as someone mentioned earlier. I see no need to have dues. The donation system should be fine.
    Rick,
    I agree, and understand what y'all are sayin'. I do think we need a treasurer if only because in 5 or 8 years, we're all going to be going along all happy like and some newbie, who doesn't know any of us is going to say he donated $1500 dollars and it was stolen or mismanaged. And I think it would be good protection for information regarding money to be handled by a treasurer and that it be public (via the website).
    Just my opinion, but I've seen stuff like this go bad before, which is why I'm harping on it so much.
    They say I have A.D.D. but they just don't understand. Oh Look! A chicken!

    I was just pointing out we do not need to pay dues.

    We can have a treasurer. I have no problem with that if that is what people want. I am not the one that is "the organization" you all are. It would not hurt to assign a full board of members anyways, even if there is no need for some of the postions.

    Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

    I added a mission statement in the navigation bar. It is a standard geocaching mission statement and I received permission from the originator to use it and modify it. You can also view it here. http://www.geocachingmaine.org/index.php?page=gmmission
