Re: 4-point square coin version
- Unless things have changed, I think TPTB have been pretty lenient on
letting groups use the GC logo (or the CITO logo). I know when the
Dillon Gang and Bobkatz were putting together the CA coin, it wasn't
any big deal (I think they had to sign a piece of paper). Perhaps
since they don't see the discussion on the gc forums they don't think
it's legit or something. I'm not sure. Maybe if you direct them to
this thread, and maybe a list of the cachers involved it might soften
them a little. At any rate, it's no big deal to me if the GC logo is
there or not.
If you are putting together a CITO coin I'd be interested in
participating in that for next years Yosemite CITO Event.
Another thought: instead of MRY and SCRUZ, you could put Point Pinos
lighthouse and Santa Cruz Lighthouse. Just a thought.
