I am passing this request along to any of our members who might be interested in helping out this study.

Message: Hi,

I am a geocacher in Quebec, but also a student at the University of Athabasca. For my final course in Social Sciences I have decide to do a survey on Geocachers to define the participants by age groups, education and occupations. To get a better idea of the social aspect of the sport, the members will be asked if they geocahe alone, with a partner, in groups, or if they belong to groups, or get the help of others to solve the puzzles associated with some geocaches. The third aspect of the study is what motivates the geocachers to keep going in their search for more geocaches. Is it the simple fact of finding more caches, is it the experience of going outdoors, or finding new areas that they normally would not have gone to. Is it the social aspect of doing a sport in a group? I am presently developing the questionnaires. Would it be possible to e-mail the questionnaire to you members once it is ready?

Thanks,
Jean Roy

Anonymity Message

The following survey is produced to obtain information on the demographics of geocachers in Canada, information on the social aspect of geocaching, and the motivation of the geocachers. The data obtained in this survey will be kept anonymous. If any data is included in the responses that can identify the respondent, the information will be destroyed and the data will not be used in the survey.

Thank you.

Here is the link to the survey www.surveymonkey.com/s/N5NNZKB

Did the survey. It's always good to help out students. I'm not sure if he or she is a geocacher, however. Some of the questions had to be answered in the box since there were multiple answers.

Of course I do not consider geocaching a sport nor a hobby. It's an obsession. **lol** OK, also a game.

Did the survey a week or two ago when it was first sent out. Quite simple is right, plus by doing it you're helping out a student who chose a good hobby to study! Very Happy
