This is an on-going survey, created by Island-Dave.  See the [results] on this web site.  We are collecting information from our members and local geocachers, to determine some generalities about what makes up a geocacher and how we might mold the Association to fit the desires of our members.  The survey asks for personal and demographic information (if you enter a Geocaching Name, it will not be displayed with the survey results), your geocaching habits and favorite caches.  You can even enter general comments about the sport.     Privacy Statement
