A note from the Administrator, Griff Grof, June 2014

Welcome to CacheWalker! Thank you for taking your time to check us out! I took over as administrator on the previous CacheWalker forum, after the founder and previous admin, Bikermel76, decided to step down... after finding tons of problems with the old service, Altra and I decided to launch a new SMF forum for CacheWalker - its third incarnation. Not everyone was in favour of the move at first, but I hope that several years later it seems worth it! 

My vision for CacheWalker is simple: I want it to promote superb caching walks; secure its place as the recognised caching community for Gloucestershire, Worcestershire and Warwickshire; be seen as the main place for cachers of all areas to share walks and chat about caching. I want our events to remain frequent, diverse and unique in order to attract as many cachers as possible to fulfill the above. Bikermel76 really was an iconic cacher, also launching the Sidetracked series, which is now a global phenomenon - I will strive to see CacheWalker grow in her legacy, as well as for the other founder members, and the many brilliant people who form the rest of the community. 

I hope that I, along with the rest of the team, will have a lot to offer to the CacheWalker site, having already made major improvments. I aim to keep the forum running as Administrator for many more moons to come.
