Groundspeak is a totally different situation altogether. By listing geocaching sites worldwide they have to protect themselves. Hence, guidelines stipulating that there is permission to hide a cache in a given spot etc. The BCGA doesn't approve geocaches.

The BCGA staff has been discussing this topic. Although I can't speak for everyone at this point in time most directors I've talked to agree that there should be more emphasis on environmental concerns and geocaching etiquette. When the new website format is introduced there will be several changes that will hopefully please most members.

While it is not necessary to submit a cache to BCGA for approval, is the BCGA through it’s BC Parks partnership initiatives (Blue Sky or others) not saying that they approve the members caches that are being placed in these parks. By selecting certain members to place these caches, in effect also partnering with that Cache owner, are they not giving their approval to that cache?

Ummm... NO.

Finally, would not the agreement of members to follow established rules and guidelines not naturally tend to lead to addressing most environmental and other caching concerns?


After sorting out the double negatives I think you're suggesting in summar that the BCGA become a local cache police detachment. This isn't their role at all.

Me neither.

Supporting the education of newbies at Geocaching 101 type events is fine, however that is as far as the association needs to go down this path. It is not within the mandate to become the geocaching police for Groundspeak.

Besides, someone already mentioned on this thread that BCGA members are the type of geocachers that would already inherently have an elevated understanding of good conduct for the game. This is a very good point.
