I was just purusing the Forums and the Association Calender looking for dates for the Cache Blitz. I see no mention of it since November.
I sure hope its a go this year!

curious,

Also remember that all the dates for the major 2008 BCGA events have been posted in the announcements section of the forums.

Silly me for thinking that the BCGA Calendar, on the Main Menu, would be the place to look! Wink

We can't put the dates on the calendar until they're confirmed by our reps across the province. We don't really know what date they'll have a CITO in Prince George or a Blitz Event in Cranbrook since the dates are open for the weekend to give our reps a bit of leaway.

The dates posted at the beginning of the year were for reference so people will know roughly when these events will take place. Sorry we can't be more exact. If you would like to go to one of these events, please try to keep the weekend open until we are able to post the events on groundspeak.

I suggest you sticky this thread to make the info easily available for everyone. I had no idea there was even a cache blitz planned. I still can't find any way to find out about except through the link posted in this thread. Make it stand out better please.

The first mention of the Blitz for 2008 was in the General Announcements section under the thread titled "Event Dates" posted way back on Nov 20 2007. Plus it was on the Home Page for a time beginning Feb 12 as evidenced by the link posted. And I'm sure the gang will soon be posting another Blitz Event article on the Home Page, same as last year.

You just gotta visit more often to notice these things! Razz

The 2008 Blitz was also mentioned on Icenrye's last videozine. I'm surprised people missed the Blitz announcement on the front page. It was there for over two weeks and was just scrolled off today with the new news stories. We'll be posting more Blitz updates shortly.

I'm not saying there hasn't been posting about the blitz. I guess I'm used to these things being stickied in a forum. And I wasn't checking in much between November and January so didn't see the original postings.
