I know caching is just a hobby and this topic doesn't mean much in the grand scheme of things, however... is it time for a change???
Do you think it’s time to unite SETX by developing one mission statement and mascot for the entire region?
As I travel around to various areas within the greater Houston area and speak to follow cachers, I hear talk about one logo or another - 'we had it first', 'we like ours better'… and it got me thinking. Mind you, I have no knowledge of the history of the current mascot(s) (flamingo and gator), so it's no skin off my nose to ask the question, although it may tick some people off.
Just think about how much stronger our community would be if we all worked together and flew the same colors that represented our great state of Texas!!
BTW – I’m also not saying that the current mascots (flamingo and gator) are either good or bad, nor that we shouldn't simply leave things just the way they are. However, I do believe we should simply ‘think about it’ and if the majority agrees that we should make a change, we actually DO something about it.
Please participate in the poll and discuss it here on the board. If there is enough interest in pursuing the topic, we will move on to the next step of setting up the proper support team to write the mission statement and develop a mascot.
I also feel that everyone should have a say in the development of options (I know, this could be quite a mess), not just a small handful of folks, which would then be narrowed down to the final winner by a vote from SETX members.
Another BTW – I know my thoughts are all over the board, but I hope you get the gist of what I was attempting to say.
Ok, I’m off my soap box now and everyone can begin throwing tomatoes at me!
