    Hi everybody,

    Thanks for all your contributions, this is starting to take shape.

    One of the major issues we have is letting those cachers who never visit the GC.com forums know we are here.

    All cachers have to look at cache pages, and if those cache pages each had a link to the GAGB ... Problem solved.

    So perhaps our current members would be kind enough to put a link on each of their cache pages.

    To that end we have created a web page with some helpful (we hope) instructions and samples.

    Please take a look at this page http://www.gagb.org.uk/pagelinks.

    If you have any problems, please post them here.

    Many thanks.
    GAGB Team

    I've added the following to my GC.com sigline:

    I am a proud member of the Geocaching Association of Great Britain.
    If you would like to have a say in the future of geocaching in the UK, please visit http://www.gagb.org.uk

    Maybe someone will see those posts, and visit.

    I'm looking to add them to 'found' cache logs as well. :unsure:
    One day my sigline will stop changing.
    Until then, it's "Lost in the woods? Not if you remembered to waypoint the car!!".

    I appreciate your enthusiasm here but we've got to tread carefully given the initial reaction to GAGB. There are others out there who may find your posting on a "found cache" report to be inflammatory if they don't support the Association themselves. If you try this and get an adverse reaction then please let us know - and be prepared to edit your log or risk deletion of the find!

    That is my main concern too.

    I will be watching for sniping, and will remove as necessary. :unsure:

    In the meantime, I will try to promote the sport, and the Association, in the light I believe it was originally intended.
