I think the fact that so far only 45-50 people (out of about 1000 possibly active) have put their hand up to donate, that kind of proves my theory in my last post so far. :roll:

I was discussing this funding issue with another cacher today. I am personally not for the association at this point, all seems too much trouble. political hoohaa + redtape = blah..
