Thanks

Well I had heard through the rumor mill that this was posted so now that we are home we have decided to become members so that we can keep an eye on a certain guy and his shenanigans. We were so queezy that we could barely eat and Dubble Trouble has woken up twice having nightmares about worthless nuts. :D Seriously though it was sneaky and funny. I wondered why so many people had on such awful colors and now I know that it's because Mike paid you all to wear that stuff. It was good to see a few people stand strong like Team Mina, Eleanor and Moop Along. We had a great time today talking with everybody and can't wait for another one when there hopefully isn't a blizzard from Michigan to Defiance going on so we can get more than just 10 caches.

Justin,

The next time I see T-Hunter I will give him a present I have for you.


8O I'm guessing this can't be a good thing!!!

I looks like it was a complete success. I wish I could have been there. Scouting got in the way. Maybe next time.

Maybe we should have one before the football season?

Maybe we could get GizmoGuy to put up a couple of polls. One to see if it should be held in Defiance again or if it should be nomadic and try it somewhere else. Another to see if people want to have one this summer or wait and have one once the college football season starts.
Good Luck & Happy Hunting!

We could do it on the OSU-Michigan Saturday. Then we could see if there is a separation between cache and state.

I can do that. But let's throw out some more ideas and see what happens. When I get home from out of town next week I'll put up some polls based on the ideas here.

I was thinking that we really don't need to have one for Maumee and Findlay every month, so if we have a nomadic M&E we could make B.G. part of the nomadic series too, and not have one for Maumee & Findlay for that month. Thoughts?

I wish we had a Google map set up with pushpins for all our members to see the geographical distribution. Anyone wanna tackle that? There is "Clusterer" addon for Google's API at www.acme.com that could be used. Maybe GoodDog could get on that! The author even says, "Using Clusterer is very easy."

BTW! You guys did a great job of hosting the event.

I was very impressed to see the turn-out and the distance that some drove dispite the weather!

I completely agree the Defiance M&E was a great success. Part of the success may be attributable to the nomadic nature of the event. I know I wanted to meet cachers that don't make it to the Maumee M&E.

I think the push pin idea is a fine one.

Could it be a nomadic M & E that moves between Bowling Green, Defiance, Findlay and Maumee? Have 2 M & E's a month and have it rotate between the 4 places that way each place has one every other month? I think that Defiance's needs to stay on a Saturday though. I do newspaper routes Sunday through Friday between 3 - 5pm and I know T-Hunter is a 2nd shifter.
Good Luck & Happy Hunting!

I'd be willing to shift between Maumee & BG. Defiance is a little bit away for people who work until 5:30, however, that would give us a reason to get over there & cache!

Very easy for who? LOL! Definately not a non-techy like me. I think the push pin locator thing is a great idea, but I'm not smart enough to understand how to do it. I'm still amazed that I was able to pick up on HTML enough to be able to do my cache hide pages!
For the most part, trying to teach me tech & code stuff is like :deadhorse:
Me trying hard to understand and figure out tech & code stuff :blowup:

Then have you seen my GeoHTML guide?

And don't feel out in the cold about the Map thing.... It did not exactly look easy to me either!

Haven't seen it, but I don't think my pages look too bad for an amateur.

I think that we should keep Maumee, BG and Findlay schedule as is and Defiance on Saturday every 2 or 3 months. Maybe if you want you add a 2nd location for the Saturday rotation. I believe if you keep the Saturday M&E at every 3 months you will a better attendance than a monthly meeting.

You are right! Your page does look good. I think making your page look good, makes the cache look better too. It shows you took the time to make it presentantable to other cachers.

I know I'm off topic here and I try not to do that, so for any more HTML discussion here is where I hid the HTML stuff: http://nwogeo.org/Forums/viewtopic/t=1752.html
