On Saturday, July 28th their will be 2 events. One before the kayaking
activities, hosted by Kim of Meandmydogs, and 1 after hosted by Dick &
Nancy of Kayak Kouple. This is due to the fact that geocaching/
groundspeak/gpsfun has stated that an event is only for "meeting &
greeting" and no activities such as geocaching, kayaking etc should
take place as part of / during the event.
I think that the Granite State Geocachers should be present or
represented at ALL geocaching events How else will we get new members
or fellow cachers involved? I also feel that all G.S.G. meetings
should always be 'open' for the same reason as stated above.
The 'Mid-day Meet & Greet' is open to all cachers whether they have
kayaked their way there or were out caching in the area or just want
to get together with everyone to 'meet & greet' and catch up and share
all those great caching adventures.
Many may already know this area, it is the boat launch site at the
beginning of last years kayaking event with Meandmydogs. It is a nice
area and great for a quick picnic or swimming or both. It will be the
end station for this years Meandmydogs or 'MADDOGS' kayaking event.
The Granite State Geocachers are more than welcome to pass out the
golden NH geocoins at this event. I think that the idea of raffling
off 1 or 2 extra coins to non-members, will bring everyone together
and maybe also bring new members to G.S.G.. I think it be be a
positive event for the GSG.
Reguardless of what is decided, I am for an 'open' event.
Nancy / Kayak Kouple (who will NOT be kayaking this year & am looking
forward to the mid-day event)
Somehow Bev and I both had missed out on this happening. But this July
28th event(s) will work out PERFECTLY for us Off Trackers and Kimba
Off-Track also. We will plan on giving out the Geocoins at the midday
event to everyone on the NH Geocachers list, and we will have two extras
to be raffled off to anyone who is not a member.
This all should be great fun! Looking forward to seeing you all a week
Mandy & Bev, Off Trackers
I will be there in spirit!

Both events are 'meet & greets'. Everyone is welcome to attend one or
both events and either boat or cache in the area between events and
later meet to have a picnic together.
The Granite State Geocachers still need a GSG member to be present at
the mid day event on the 28th of July who would like to represent
the Granite State Geocachers group. Who would like to volunteer to do
Another question to be answered, as mentioned by Bass.Chaz, is there
any other way to inform members of the Granite State Geocachers of
upcoming GSG events? Or should we assume that all members check out
this site on a regular bases, or are signed up for automatic
notification of new posts?

If you want, I could post any future gatherings on the discussion
board in a pinned topic. What I think we need is a calendar of some
sort. I thought that we used to have one on the website, but I don't
see one anymore. Let me know what you think!
