It seems like a pittance for the amount of effort we will have to put in IMO. I have a pedometer already and the reward is 6 surveys completed for a measly coin?
"One of the ways we will measure physical activity is by the number of steps you walk each time you go geocaching. In order to track this, we will send you a pedometer and a record book. Please use the pedometer when you go geocaching and record the number of steps you walked in the record book...Upon completion of six GEAR surveys, you will receive a geocaching trackable. If you complete all twelve monthly surveys, you will be eligible for a limited edition trackable!"
Here is my letter back to them:
As an active member of the Houston Geocaching Society and discussing it with other members, it seems like a pittance for the amount of effort we will have to put in IMO. I have a pedometer already and the reward is 6 surveys completed for a measly coin?
I'm thinking 3 surveys per coin. Afterall, we are talking about 6 months of record keeping and for most of us, we geocache constantly. It is akin to getting a potato chip after laboring all day.
If someone completes all 12 months, they should automatically receive a coin. We are doing all the work to gather the data. You all will simply be sifting it.
