The easiest way to fund the site is to click an ad every now and then. :)

Any more talk about these? Ready to get them going? We need more OCUS stuff!

I"m still getting settled in. But yes I would eventually like to see lots of OC stuff. Did anyone ever come up with a design for a pathtag? I have talked with them regarding using the fund raising option in the past and they will do it for new people but they prefer to see an order go in that is funded by the organization first. They are very nice and easy to work with.

I would like to see more swag focused things to start off. I'm sure we all use other caching sites as well. What I intend to do is make a small business card up with the website on it and place them in GC.com caches to advertise. Pathtags would do the same thing. Fundraising is good, it helps pay the bills but I really want to get the word out there and if we can drop OCUS swag in GC caches that would be great.

How about simply using the OCUS logo - complete with "Opencaching.US" under it on a white background?

I admit to letting things get in the way. Yeah, I was thinking that something very similar to THIS ONE from OCUK, but with "US" (or "North America") at the end, would be a good first one. I would like to do OCUS as a commemoration our our first year, though.

I'll will get back on this and get it going.

I like the idea of OCUS for the first one for the exact reason you stated... to commemorate the first year and the next one and the rest moving forward can be NA or North America.

I've contacted The Geocoin Store about doing an OCUS tag as a fundraiser and about creating an OpenCaching Network Tag Back.

Took me forever to find this thread, aftter reading about all the various new swag available over on the Opencaching website forum. Any update? Because I think this sounds excellent, the 20 Pathtags for $20 fundraiser thing. And this is the first I ever actually went to the website, and checked it out. Oddly, I don't see the ones NativeTexan was talking about that her group did. Could be they're sold out though.
