The Opencaching Deutschland e.V. (e.V. = registered association) was founded on June 9, 2012 as new operator of the Opencaching.de (OC) websites - including opencaching.it, opencachingspain.es and opencaching.fr -, and to ensure future development of OC. The association may also support other upcoming Opencaching projects.
The association's registered address is at Bad Homburg vor der Höhe near Frankfurt/Main. We chose this place because it is a central location in Germany. Eventually, the location is not important as the association nearly solely acts online. General meetings, board sessions and conferences on further development of Opencaching.de take place via TeamSpeak. We use E-Mail and – of course – our Forum.
Membership is free for active members (ordentliche Mitglieder) who directly contribute time and work to the Opencaching.de project. We are always looking for software developers and testers, graphic designers, photographers, lectors, support people, documenters etc.! If you don't have the time for this, you may become passive member (Fördermitglied). The minimum fee for passive members is 1 Euro per month.
You can download the current statutes here (in German).
You can download the application form here (in German).
We depend on your donations to finance the technical operation of the website. We will be glad to recieve your support via our donations page; a few Euros will already help us.
You are welcome to contact the chairman at email@example.com./p>
