Alright, I think we have enough name suggestions to open the poll now and close it on December 29th. That way we will know the name in time for the next B&W night. I will open a new thread with the poll. Based on comments and available domains here is a list of the options I am including in the poll.


Mountaineer Area Geocachers Persons of Interest - MAGPI - magpi.us
Mountain State Seekers of TUPperware - MSSTUP - msstup.org
Mountaineer Area Geocachers Association - MAGCA - magca.org
North Central West Virginia Geocachers - NCWVG - ncwvg.org
West Virginia Geocaching Enthusiast Organization - WVGEO - wvgeo.org

Now that there's logo and a name, is the tag line staying the same?

At the very least, I'd change the word "woods" to "mountains".

  • I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous.

  • I love deadlines. I especially like the whooshing sound they make when they go flying by.

Still good with "crazy" and "tupperware"?

How about "Mental Explorers Questing for Home Products Used for the Preparation, Storage, and Serving of Items Hidden in a Stealthy Manner in the Landmasses Projecting Conspicuously Above its Surroundings in the Region Commonly Known as West Virginia".

Kind of rolls right off the tongue, don't it?

I'm not that crazy about them either, but being the creatively challenged person that I am, I can't think of anything better at the present time.

Similar wording in King James English and I'd say we have a winner.

I don't think King James' contemporaries had tupperware (or similar) containers so the wording might be iffy

We could go back a "few" more centuries and go with "amphora" instead of "home products used for the preparation, storage & serving of items as I think if the ancient greeks had geocached that's what they would have been their cache container of choice.

Now your just giving me ideas. I wonder if any one makes a waterproof plastic amphora. :roll: :lol:

I think amphora are waterproof by nature. Or at least olive oil proof & wine proof since that's some of the things they used to use them for. Heck, on some ancient ship wrecks archaeologists have discovered them still intact with stuff inside.

I bet any good potter could make you a proper amphora to meet your specifications.
