Re: [gpsstash] Re: Suggestion for New Name


Wow, a name change sure got a rise out of this group!! Thanks!!

If there ever was a time to question our direction, now is the time, and its
never too late ! I don't think we need a name change immediately but its
good that we all think about how it may effect the future of the game. Right
now we have an extremely limited audience and the larger percentage of all
earthlings have no idea what a GPS is. The question really should be: How
broad an audience do we want? Do we want children participating? Women?

I personally like Stash Hunt, but then I am a Stasher!!

Dave...
