The MnGCA received the following request. Please email board@mngca.org if you can help out with this event in Stearns County.


We are looking for volunteers for a "The Take the Day OFF* (outdoor family
fun)" event is a day of free family fun, where people can get hands-on
instruction in a variety of outdoor activities within the community. The
event will be held at the Mississippi Park in Stearns County on August 2,
2014. Nearly 30 activities were held at last year’s event. We were hoping
to have a station with skilled/avid geocachers to introduce people to
geocaching and set a few caches within the park for the day. In the past
the event has had geocaching available for people to learn about and even
try while using a hand held gps. Since nearly everyone has some sort of
electric device that can download apps using gps, the idea of showing
people how to use their own device would be beneficial (hopefully feasible)
than trying to teach them to use a different gps for the day. In the past
people have brought in their own gps or phones and we taught them how to
use it. Most people were very happy that we able to figure out how to use
their phones or personal gps for geocaching. The experience that we
encountered in the past was that people heard of geocaching but never took
the time to try the activity until that day.

If there are willing and interested volunteers that could teach and inform
people at this one day event we would greatly appreciate your attendance.
This event is a community event that provides free outdoor activities for
the day which will take place on August 2, 2014. Thank you for your time.
