I am hoping that someone would volunteer to generate a brochure that we could hand out at events that explain what the Minnesota Geocaching Association does.
I would be nice if it could be done in a pdf format. It would also be nice if it were a trifold format similiar to the geocaching.com brochure.

We were hoping that someone could have this done by Nov 16 in time for the GIS day to be held at UMD.

I can throw together something in Word for you. Multicolor & everything. I am taking a computer apps class, maybe I can use it for extra credit.

There's also free software called PDFCreator for creating a PDF from any application.
Just install it and send the document to PDFCreator instead of the printer.

It works really well - that's how the ledger is created.

Or you could use your Mac Cool and just poke the PDF button

Thank you Ms Devil, your time and effort is greatly appreciated. You should get enough extra credit to insure a 4.0

If you need some content ideas, there are a couple items at Geocacher University that you may find interesting.

I have adobe acrobat standard to make the PDF if you e-mail your finished product to me I can convert it and send it back to you.

another suggestion was too use the blank areas to show the closest caches. I'm going to look up those and we are also looking at putting another traditional cache for people to find at the GIS day.
So, I will send you the doc file after we get the addtional information. Assuming that you are still willing to convert from a doc to a pdf?

I can convert it. Just send it to my e-mail when it is ready.

If you have something ready for print, could you post it? I can always use some when I am doing presentations to 4-H kids. I have plenty of GC.com ones.
