    Default Help the 'Newbies' at local meets.

    I remember when we went to our first cachers meeting (Port Isaac, Cornwall) and the first thing we were asked to do was to write our names on a couple of big white stickers and wear them. This made it so easy as we were able to identify the cachers whose names we had seen on the cache pages or in the cache logs. Since then we have been to quite a few meets and as we have not seen the stickers on offer at any others we have made a pair of badges to wear and will wear them whenever we go to meets.
    So come on you meet organisers, get some labels (even a wide roll of masking tape does the job) and give the newcomers a chance to recognise the regulars (who know each other).

    It's not just the newbies, the non-locals could do with a helping hand to know whose who!

    And us older grannies.........cos I could have met you once or twice times but I won't remeber at the next Mega, in fact I probably won't remember the next day!!



    And can you make the writing on the badge BIG and bold and black so I don't have to read it 3 inches from your breast and look like a plonker.

    make yourself a special event t=shirt.

    light t=shirt and a transfer pack from somewhere cheap, instant big way for people to be able to spot you from a distance and hide just working on mine to give those people who cant spot the tallest person there a head start:lol:

    This is ours it works well and very cheap to make, I think the t-shirt was from matalan or simular for about 1 and the printing was done by our local photo shop for a fiver. Works well and we wear them at any events/meets we attend

    Must admit it is a very clever response but I enjoy the banter.

    We really need a icon that has a little halo or a tongue firmly in a cheek :lol:

    In my early days of drinking, having smacked my head on a beam :wacko: in a "quaint old pub" as I walked away from the bar with a pint -Never spilt a drop! - I now always take a drink out of the glass first , then walk away from the bar with my head lowered!

    Although not quite as vertically enabled as Mr Nobbs, I have perfected a similar technique, whereby to lessen the odds of hitting my head at any point during the session I stay at the bar taking drinks from as many pints as I feel I will need, then leaving on my knees - or, in the case of VERY low ceilings - draped across the shoulders of companions.....
