    We're all calm. I was just trying to get something clarified. The ideas are straying further and further from the original posts so it matters less and less anyway. Carry on!

    Not straying. Setting this thing up.

    Bangor area will start this off on the second Sunday of April. It will e listed as a Breakfast meeting event and we will go from there. I don't really see any problem claiming each event you attend, I also don't see any problem with an event that the date changes every two weeks.

    Now if we can get three other people to jump in and take other areas it would be nice.
    I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.

    Exactly!!

    "If you have a novel type of cache that "pushes the envelope" to some degree, then it is best to contact your local reviewer and/or Groundspeak before placing and reporting it on the Geocaching.com web site"

    Your local reviewer is happy to discuss any cache idea. Still, it makes sense to work out exactly what you want to do, then ask.

    I see your point, I'd recommend posting "the cache for all of the reviewers to see in their private discussion forum. Sometimes a second opinion from someone else who has seen a similar situation can help in suggesting a way for the cache to be published."

    Which seems to work since 2006 for the Beer and Wings event I posted. That is where it gets fuzzy for me.
    I guess my question is does that event page I listed meet the expectations?
    If not, it must either be grandfathered or someone should request an archive?

    "First and foremost please be advised there is no precedent for placing caches. This means that the past listing of a similar cache in and of itself is not a valid justification for the listing of a new cache. If a cache has been published and violates any guidelines listed below, you are encouraged to report it. However, if the cache was placed prior to the date when a guideline was issued or updated the cache is likely to be "grandfathered" and allowed to stand as is."

    The correct way to resolve this concern is to contact the reviewer who published the cache or contact@geocaching.com

    If the event continuously changes locations, I would log them as seperate events. If it occurs in the same venue every Sunday I'd only log it the first time I attended. However, I could care less how others log it. If people want to log 52 Sunday events in a year they could earn the "ironman breakfast" award.

    Just read this who thread........wow! Just publish your events as events. Each seems like a separate thing to me.

    One comment - I do have a life other than Geocaching. An event a month or so or every quarter is fine but sponsors of events need to understand and expect that attendenace will vary based upon seasons, weather and other things. As long as sponsors realize this and are not upset if a lot don't show up - or a huge number do - everyone will be happy.

    I, personally, also would not be into the mystrey think more than one or twice a year. With gas what it is right now - it would be nice if you could post the approximate travel mileage so folks could plan- place not necessary just the mileage. Just a suggestion.

    If the event is listed on Geocaching.com, I think the milage to the event from your own house will be listed on the event page, that is if you have listed your zipcode on the Geocaching.com website.
