The Board received the following request:
Quote:
I am working with the American Diabetes Association to put on the 2013 Tour
de Cure bicycle tours. We are looking for volunteers to work with GPS
devices to place signage indicating direction for the bike routes to
follow.

one person can do the job, but we would like to get up to 10 teams of
two people to place the signs and retrieve them after the event.

Volunteers will receive t-shirt, meal at the start fininsh line and other
possible goodies. Please call me 612-554-1340 for further info. You can
sign up to volunteer at
http://main.diabetes.org/site/TR?fr_id=8675&pg=entry

Please call me to discuss possibilities.

Thank You,
Phillip Lawson 612-554-1340

The maps are here, if anyone wonders where they will need the signage.

If anyone is interested in teaming up, this sounds fun!

The Board received a little more information on this opportunity:

Quote:
Im a volunteer helping to plan routes (multiple distances up to 100
miles) for Tour de Cure, the American Diabetes Association annual biking
event. Would members of the Minnesota Geocaching Association consider
helping us mark the course?

In all, 121 miles from Lake Minnetonka to downtown St. Paul must
be marked for the event on Saturday, June 1. We expect close to 1,000
bikers, and precise placement of signs and spray chalk, where allowed,
helps bikers stay on course and ensures safety.
GPS coordinates identify the location for all marking. Marking cannot
begin until 7 pm Friday, May 31, and must be completed by 5 am Saturday,
June 1. Marking can be done by car or bike pulling a trailer full of signs.
For those marking by car, parking locations identify the closest access to
sign locations on bike trails (Minnehaha Parkway, Midtown Greenway Trail,
Dakota Rail Trail, Luce Line Trail, Kenilworth Trail and Cedar Lake Trail).


We have divided the routes into 11 segments, so we could make route
marking a competitive event based on accuracy.
If your members mark all routes, the Minnesota Geocaching Association
would be listed as an in-kind sponsor of Tour de Cure. Members involved in
marking would each receive a Tour de Cure volunteer T-shirt and be our
guest at the lunch served to participants and volunteers at Minnehaha
Falls.
Please reply to let me know whether or not you are interested. I look
forward to hearing from you.

If you are interested in helping out, please let them know as soon as possible.
