The event cache has been published here

Go ahead and sign up for me soon as space is limited for dinner. If we get more than 40 attendees, I'll need to find somewhere else.

At the risk of sounding like I'm begging, does anyone have anything they'd like to donate for door prizes for the poker run dinner? MnGCA has generously donated $100 worth of logowear and a couple of geocoins. You can email me, post here, or PM.

Anyone? Anyone? Anyone?

I can pitch a few items in for the swag pile, a couple of unactivated TB tags and a handful of assorted Geocoins, I'll toss in two from MN and maybe a couple from elsewhere. Be sure to let Arctic know the coin numbers I give ya for the event - I don't want anyone yelling at me if a coin I orginally purchased, then gave away here, ends up on Ebay! Confused Have fun at the event, wish I could be there, thanks for setting it up!

OK, folks, I have a list of door prizes I currently have or have been promised:

MNGCA Stuff: Hooded Sweatshirt, Gray T, Golf Shirt, Coffee Mug, Logbook, 10 Magnets

Also, 4 MN geocoins, some other unspecified geocoins, unactivated TB bug tags, USB-Serial connector.

I'll post any other items I receive. BTW, my tongue is numb from sealing envelopes!

And here I thought your Magellan took you a bit off course and you got your tongue stuck to a flagpole... Twisted Evil

LOL...sorry, had to say it. Great job organizing this Jambro!

Hey np, glad to help - I have everything all together now in a single plastic baggie, and ready to go. If you (or a responsible event rep) will be at the Breakfast Buddies event in Richfield this upcoming Saturday, I can deliver it there - if not, PM me a mailing addy and I'll pop 'em in the mail. Should be a fun event, thanks!

-Ken

And the swag keeps rolling in! Thanks to sir Zman for the donation of several TCGCPC buttons/magnets, one of which is proudly attached to my refrigerator (with the concurrence of the Z).

Another update - all caches are ready, and locations are scouted. We are over 40 for dinner (right now about 42-43, still waiting to hear from one group) but I was able to secure a few more seats for us. Sign up soon if you haven't, the sign up closes tomorrow.

Jambro, were you going to have the coordinates on a laptop for people to download, or are we thumbing them into our GPSr's?

Oh, wait...I shouldn't have asked, you always have to thumb yours in so you're going to make sure we feel that pain Laughing

If you all had Rinos transferring coordinates would be a piece of cake Wink
