Nobody said nor implied that they "ONLY care about getting a click for this
event".  Mark is suggesting a monthly meeting/workshop, which I think is a
great idea. He doesn't deserve to be told to "Get over it!".

You know what... This is a numbers thing.. Exactly why GC.COM wants to get
away from it.. If there were no numbers involved who would care if there was
a cache event or not... You ONLY care about getting a click for the event...
I could care less.. To me, it is an advertisement to everyone around. Lots
of people don't even read this group.. How do we reach them? Granted this is
short notice but MAYBE someone will show up because they saw the EVENT PAGE.

Forget the, "It's not fair" It's an event... If we click it as found, then
so be it.. Get over it!

  i dont think that the breakfasts should be logged it is just a gathering
of folks to have a social thing.now if we were to have monthly meetings with
workshops and such then it would be a loggable cache.btw why don't we have a
monthly meeting to touch base about what is new in the caching world.we are
becoming a bigger group and need to take on the role of organizing a group
.let's check into this and see what we can pull out of the hat.pntball

    That is a common thought, nothing to get blasted about. Many parts of
the
    country list events every time someone stops on the corner to talk.
Other
    places list only bigger events and others list the monthly planning and
    members meetings too.

    In general, an event has to be for geocachers, where geocaching is
    discussed, or participated in.

    Many folks are starting to balk at the "I am going (camping, eating,
    walking... ) y'all come along sort of event pages.

    I think personally they are sort of borderline. That is why I haven't
    posted any of my geocaching camping w/e caches this year.

    The only event caches that I *clearly* think are bogus are the types
that
    are not directly geocaching related but some geocachers are invited to
show
    up... "Come to our 4wheel drive event, some cachers are gonna be there,
we
    can tal k" .. ect.

    It a wash to me, what ever the consensus is is OK by me.
