Project page for anyone who wants to collaborate on a geocache for PaxSpace .

Goal: Build and maintain a geocache for PaxSpace as a way to market our makerspace to potential new members.

Desired Features

  • Easy to find, located near the front door to PaxSpace.
  • Make the cache itself at PaxSpace using tools/materials at PaxSpace.
  • Showcase things you can make at PaxSpace in the cache as the trade swag.
  • When geocachers sign logbook, ask if they would like to be contacted about membership via email
  • Keep flyers in the cache for non-members to take and consider joining.
  • 'First Time Finder" award could be one free month membership to PaxSpace
  • Make the theme 'maker' related -- e.g. swag you trade should be something you made yourself


Concerns

  • Need to notify local businesses of cache? Increase foot traffic in area could be seen as good or bad.
  • Long term maintenance
