C. Open Issues
The artist has checked over the specifications and Andrew will be sending the bid request to various vendors. The bids will close June 21st and the winning bid will be notified by June 26th. A news story will also be put on the website, to allow any other vendor to request the bid document.
Metro Vancouver Parks:
The second of the events held at Capilano Park went well. The next one is June 26th in Campbell Valley Park. There will be three more events in the fall. It was felt that the next executive should be encouraged to continue these events next year. Also Ted will try and ensure our involvement in the development of their geocaching policy
Science World went well. There is a geocaching section in the Treasure exhibit. Pamplets were printed. Some were left with Science World. The remaining ones can be used for teaching and be sent with the GPSrs when they are loaned out.
Stu and Henry will be starting a new bingo game on June 11th.
We are still looking for volunteers at the booth. The slideshow is coming along well. Andrew will work on a brochure highlighting the different regions of BC. We will also have a map of BC where cachers can show where they have travelled from.
A motion was put forward by Irene to pay for 500 brochures to use at Geowoodstock. Teddy seconded. All were in favor. Motion passed.
The blitz ends soon. Voting will continue until August. Kelly will contact the reps to start arranging the Blitz windup events. The events will be listed under the BCGA geocaching account. Andrew will setup the cache pages.
A newsletter will be sent out tomorrow announcing Bingo, asking for Geowoodstock volunteers, announcing the end of the Blitz and showing a sneak peak at the coin.
Ginger will follow up with the committee to set a meeting. They have just started gathering information at this point.
GPSr Rental agreement:
Ted is working on a formal agreement. Zagg has been contacted to see if they will donate screen protectors in exchange for advertising on the website. If not, we will purchase them. Ginger motioned to purchase the screen protectors if they are not donated. Kelly seconded. All were in favor. Motion passed.
Update of closure to BCGA/Cacher matter:
We are still working on an apology letter that is agreeable to both parties. It was agreed that the latest version should be sent to the cacher immediately.
There being no further business to discuss the meeting was adjourned at 8:00 pm by Ted Nash. The next meeting date to be announced.
