TeamAngryHamster here,

I was just poking around a few other geocaching sites from different cities, when I realized that we don't have a "Join Me For Finds" Forum.

I'm pretty new here. Have we ever had a sub-forum for this kind of networking?

It would be useful for somebody like myself who currently doesn't know too many people in the area, but wouldn't mind getting together with fellow cachers to nab a few finds on any given day.

Thoughts? Ideas? Discuss. Very Happy

Sounds like an interesting idea! I'm not aware of anything like that having been on the site. There's a lot of that going on on Facebook right now, especially with the Geo-Friendship Challenge published last month (GC4HVXQ). But being new, you probably don't have many/any other cachers on Facebook. If you have a Facebook account, add Manitoba Geocaching-Association as a friend. Cachers sometimes post there as a way to arrange caching outings. And of course, pub nights and other MBGA events are a great way to meet people.

Another good way to contact other cachers for finds is PAF. PAF meants "Phone a friend" but it can also be used for what you said above. A good way to get PAFs is just sending a PM to someone. Then they may reply with their # Wink
