2. Ongoing business from last executive meeting
BCGA have some potential contacts from the Ministry of Transportation to liaise with in order to solve the issue. Presently there is still a concern with geocaches placed near MOT Rights of Way in the general Quesnel area.
Kelly will contact the Minister of Transportation and engage the help of a employee with the Ministry who is also a geocacher in BC and a BCGA member.
Jacqueline will respond to the forums letting them know we are in contact with the Ministry.
We have a designer to turn the concept into a design for our upcoming coin. We have sent the information to the designer with the information that this is a tight timeline. We are waiting to hear back. The coin should have colour and texture as per the discussion around the initial idea.
Production should follow not long after.
