    Steph . . . if you do come out and for some reason no one is here (unlikely) just walk into the garage through the side door (pay no attention to the security alarm warning sticker). The box of goodies is next to the entry door on the bench . . . you'll see a box of frisbees, some bouncy balls and a stuffed toy dalmatian.

    I think you started another thread about what's left to get, but I can't find it...
    Hi Karen, I know you're out having fun and relaxing today before tomorrow's big event! (That's right everyone, she's prepared this year!) Just wanted to let you know I've made a great list of the TBs and Coins dropped and lots of blanks for those who bring them without dropping. I'll update it again in the morning before we head to Augusta. Can't wait!

    I doubt I'll make it today...gotta do laundry and Waterville errands...but if I get really bored I may be by. Is there enough snow for sledding??

    i was wondering if might be agood idea to have a fellow cacher be at the table to keep eyes on the tbs as it seems all to often the y get lost or never logged out of the event then "lost" I remember this hapenning several times before and it is always unfortunate when it does. Folks seem to forget that these tbs and coins belong to someone

    Just a thought

    Default Yep, you are right.

    I asked Stephanie if she would make the spread sheet for the TBs and Coins so that we can keep track of them. She also offered to check on the table and if someone doesn't sign them in or out, we'll make an announcement at pot luck time. I had a person contact me this year about a coin from Iraq that got dropped at my Celebrate 2006 event and it got lost from there. I felt so bad. I don't want that to happen again.

    I hate to think that someone among us "regular" central Maine cachers is a thief, but coins go missing too often from events for it to be anything else...

    Yup I'll be there as people pour in around 2 and then I'll be sure to check up on the table regularly. If we find that some haven't been logged as dropped or some that have but haven't been logged as picked up, we'll announce them right before potluck time. Hopefully all will go well.
