I fully support(and thank) all people and efforts involved in last years Georush and this years ProjectBlueSky. Just quick question:

Doesn't the BC Parks Caching Policy state no "trade items" in the caches? And also isn't there a requirement for contact info of the owner in the cache as well? I've found one ProjectBlueSky cache and it had contact info, but none of the 6 Georush caches I found last year did.... And obviously they all had "trade items" in them.
I'm NOT complaining about the swag in the caches, the coins for both years were beautiful and I love trading for decent swag.
I was just curious if I read the policy correctly and if BC Parks had violated there own policies with these caches....

Any opinions?
Benny-B

UPDATE:
I re-read the policy and realized I was confused, the no trade items is Parks Canada not BC parks, never mind..... Smile OOps.

You may be thinking of National Parks (Parks Canada) and not BC Parks. Both organizations have policies in respect to geocaching but both policies have totally different restrictions.

That's why at the end of my post it says I re-read them and to nevermind the post, I was in error..... Smile

Thanks for the way you framed your question. All of us who worked hard on the project will appreciate your positive approach.

Hopefully, there will be a third year for an initiative similar to this but we will have to wait and see. Obviously, the more positive a response the better.

Glad to hear you are interested.

There are all kinds of ways. Pick the activity you are interested in and email the Director(s) involved. In case they are busy or forgetful, keep emailing until you get an answer. If you don't know the right guy(s) then ask on the forums.

There will be a new board by next year so just make sure you find out who and keep in touch.
