The Board received a request from Maddens for help in setting up geocaching on its property. The request lists the planned usage as a teambuilding exercise, but I think it would also be fun for guests. The requester also admits to no knowledge of caching so this is a starting-from-ground-zero request.

Please email me directly for contact information at Maddens.

that is actually interesting. I assume they would allow the public to find them?

To me it sounded like a limited business use. I offered to discuss basic details of geocaching and that would be one thing I would address: if this is just a resort project with the coordinates only available to employees and guests or if they are willing to open it up and publish on geocaching.com. At the most, they would probably only publish caches listed on the borders of the property.

I think a geocaching consultant needs to charge them at least $80 / hour for this service. Which one could donate to MNGCA kitty if one for some reason did not feel comfortable getting paid.

I believe they are open to compensation.

I would do it for a minimal donation to MNGCA and a free resort stay for the wife and I for next summer. Wink
