Now, this could be a lot of work or fairly easy.....maybe. And I was thinking of this in conjuction with places to eat. There is a pizza place in Hayward that is very Geocaching friendly. The owner gives me $20 gift cards to put in caches for as a FTF prize on my puzzle caches. He has also letting me put in $5 off coupons(with a min. $20 purch.) in my caches as well.
And I bet, if I asked him, he would give discount on your order if you showed a card of somesort saying you are a Geocahing member.
I think MIGO members get a 10% or something like that to some ,major sporting goods store.
Like I said, just a crazy idea.

Not crazy at all!

D-cards bring in business and cost the merchant very little! They know that 80-90% of your money is better than 0!

It also makes it easier to place a cache on private property, when you show a business owner income vs. expense.

Our TB Exchange is at a truck stop. When I showed the owner how it worked, he said he would be stupid NOT to give permission! He also donated a doorprize for our Event in October.

We stop there with a printout occassionally to let him know how many cachers have stopped, and we highlight the positive comments.

I think a geocaching ID card is an excellent idea. Why not pose the question to the candidates? Now's the time...

Rather than try and come up with some whole new card...perhaps ask the facility to grant a discount to those holding a WGA ID tag. Most of us who have visited WGA sanctioned events now own one.

Well, I don't know too many up this way that have WGA ID tags and I don't think there were any at the picnic last summer. Other than Bnb that is.

Well then, perhaps a WGA event in your area ........

Well Marc, that would be great, but I have been told that I live in a Non-WGAE zone. wink Rolling Eyes .

Now, is there anyway that a membership card could be filled out and downloaded from the WGA site?

Yes, all MiGO members get a 10% discount card for Dunhams.

I think that's a great idea. As to your "non-WGA" zone status, hopefully that can change soon. At the LC Event on Saturday, I heard another candidate share some great ideas regarding the ignored outstate areas. I will allow him to share those ideas himself, I wish I'd thought of them!
