*The GAGB wish to clarify, in the light of clause C8 of our Constitution, that the Association is under no commercial influence from GSAK (which is a commercial product), neither are we promoting it over any other alternative. We are simply aware that many cachers use the program and would benefit from a detailed GSAK guide on our website.
