I was approached by a friend of mine, a cacher from Preston,MN that attended a CITO Event that I hosted in Winona,MN last December. She is a newspaper reporter and she learned that the city of Lanesboro is having an Earth Day Fair on April 28th and she wanted to know if I'd organize a CITO Event in conjunction with the other activities that are going on that day. The Eagle Bluff Environmental Center is organizing the fair, so I talked at length with the organizer, and explained the synergies that exist between the two functions and she obviously thought it was a great idea.
So last night I got the Event page typed up and submitted. I got an e-mail from the Minnesota Reviewer this morning explaining why the Event page wasn't going to be published. See in the page, I stated that it was open to both cachers and non-cachers. That's a no-no. According to him,CITO events can only 'be held by cachers for cachers'. Needless to say my reporter friend was not very happy when I forwarded that e-mailed to her.

How stupid is this policy, basically I need to check a person's 'credentials' before I let them pick up garbage.

Just my opinion. And just like my old man told me once, opinions are like colons, everyone gets one. Very Happy (something like that)

You might want to ask the reviewer if he could seek a second (or third) opinion about the cache submission. Generally Groundspeak can be pretty lenient when it comes to CITO.

I know I asked about combing Adopt-a-highway and CITO and got an overwhelming thumbs up from the folks over there.

But you can't control who is going to be there.. and why can't it be open to non-cacher's, this would of been a good way to show that Geocacher care about the enviroment.. thats weird and doesn't seem right.. At my CITO i'm inviting non-cachers to come out, like the Parks and Rec People, People i work with.. most likely won't show up but still putting the invite out there!

He made me change the non-cacher part to novice cachers in order to get it approved. It should not be a mystery why I live in Minnesota but I do an overwhelming amount of my caching elsewhere. There is this twin cities 'clique' if you are not with them, your against them.
