The BIG THANKS needs to go out to sir z_man. He did all the work and a presentation prior to the campers hitting the trails. I could tell he did a great job, as they were all well informed and excited to use a GPS to seek out those Posen hides. Many smiling faces and potential future cachers were a result of his dedication and hard work.

I don't recall the exact numbers, but seem to recall it was in the area of 43 campers and 10 staff? Huge group!

Thanks Again.

That sounds about right, we had about 10 groups of 4 campers, plus 1 adult out on the trails.

I wanted to give a big thanks to The Collector, Grey Wolf and Lady Z for helping run this event yesterday. The campers had a great time and really seemed to get into it; it was a great success!


THANKS to everyone for their help in doing this!

This is back again this year, and they would like the MnGCA to help out again. Anyone want to take it over? They contacted me, and I'd be willing to do it, but also would like to let someone else have a shot at it...I'd be willing to see if I still have my slide show (power point) which you could use.

This year it would only be for the sixteen high school girls at the St. Thomas camp (http://www.stthomas.edu/gemscamp). The dates could be any of June 24-26.

Last year was a blast, and we had a lot of fun.

I was hoping you and/or Roxygen could be involved, but at the time I figured you must be at work back home. Maybe next time?
