    Default Promoting this site at events

    This thought occurred to me after the Aloha event...

    Would there be any interest if I were to create a sign promoting this site which could set on the TB table at events?

    If there is interest and we took it a step further - would anyone be against making this sign a TB which would belong to Geocaching Maine's account on geocaching.com? The goal of the TB would be to attend events, not to be left at caches. It would be up to event holders to possess, maintain and distribute the sign as needed, it would not have to be returned to me or anyone else in particular. Anyone could discover the TB, but possession would usually be left to event hosts.

    This is a mock up of what is on my mind at the moment. It would be about 12" High and 20" long. The State of Maine on the logo would be painted to match our logo. I could leave the back bare wood to allow people to sign their caching name on it. It would probably be best to have a stand to keep it upright. Any ideas, adjustments or criticisms welcome.

    Sheesh! Sounds like a good idea to me, but I thought we already had a GeocachingMaine.org sign/banner?

    And as a matter of fact, since we have a couple of members that attend a lot of the MEGA events, we could make a smaller one that they could carry with them - or a custom-made shirt. Something like "For A Good Time Join GeocachingMaine.org".

    Yes, Rick bought one back a while ago, and if I remember correctly he was willing to share it. My hope was this might be passed around more, and being smaller and freestanding it could easily be used at indoor events. Plus, if it is loggable as a TB and on the TB table, more people might be actually take time to look at it.

    Thumbs up from me.
    Everyone has the right to be an idiot at times. Just don't abuse the privilege.

    Where a Board member usually attends most events - I think it should be up to them to move it from event to event. I really don't like TBs left over and would feel repsonsible.

    A nice concept to promote using a trackable. I like it a lot better than the banner.

    You could use one of the 2009 coins for your tracking as it could be attached to the plaque with an eyehook and some of that wire with the cripped thing to hold the wire together (sorry I don't know the technical terms). It would promote the coins that way too.

    If you were uncomfortable holding it, I am sure someone else could. We seem to have events often enough now it would get passed around bit anyway. As long as it doesn't get picked up by someone who wants to take it to Swains Island it would not matter.

    I was thinking TB because I have a spare tag. But I have spare coins too. One advantage of the tag is it could be permanently and firmly attached. The coin - most people would want to see both sides so it'd end up dangling on a wire as you said or have to be made removable, or I could make a hole through the board to see both sides. Something to ponder, anyway.

    This is weird. I was thinking of this kind of thing. Where we are going to have at least one monthly event, I thought a sign would be nice to have. The banner is hanging in Attrolls garage/computer room.

    Brdad being so crafty has a great idea on this. I'm all for it.
    I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.
