Any iPhone users out there would would be able to give some insight into what Geocaching Apps are out there for the iPhone and how to use them...I'll handle the Android side of things. Also if anyone uses blackberry apps, I would love to have someone talk about whats out there in the blackberry world.

Loneeagle_24 will be picking these cds up and bring them along with him to the tech event. wish could be able to come to the event and help out. found out that still have 4 weeks before can even go out caching. have fun at the event.

I still plan to pick up a couple of dozen rolls on my way down on Saturday morning. Just curious if anyone else would be bringing anything.

Thanks for all the work you did. I've looked over what you sent Z and it's great! Sorry you aren't able to attend.

after looking at the number of people who will be attending and looking for gsak help the 20 copies of the cd we prepared will not be enough. those who would like a copy of the cd after the intial 20 are gone may want to bring a blank cd with. I am sure there will be enough people there with laptops that will be able to burn more copies. looks like we could hve been helping out a lot of people. have a fun day.

I know I'll appreciate the work you put into this and hopefully I'll get one of those copies. I've only used GSAK for the most basic of uses. Apparently, Speedy has some stuff in GSAK that I could be using to plot out previous Breakfast Buddy location, etc. but I haven't sat down with him to have him teach me. This will be great! I'm sorry you won't be able to attend so thanks for all the work you've put into it!

I'll bring some extra CDs along with my laptop.

I'm going to bring some food for the morning, and a few packs of hot dogs for lunch, not enough for everyone, but if people bring stuff it should mix in well...I encourage everyone to bring something to share for lunch

I was kind of thinking of something along this same line. I was planning on bringing my roaster along and picking up a few PKGS. of hot dogs some buns and a few condiments, nothing fancy mind you but something that those that are there would be able to at least get something to eat. People can fend for themselves on beverages in my opinion.

Sounds good to me, I'm sure if we all mix them together it will turn out well.

I've asked a few people to take over the "Puzzle" track, but none were available. So I'm going to have to drop it if no one is willing to take it on; I'd do it myself, but I'm no good at puzzles.

I think we have filled all the tracks now, so feel free to check out the cache page one more time for a final listing of classes and times.

If you are planning on joining us for the Pot-Luck, please bring your own plates/forks; I'll have a few paper plates and plastic forks, but would like to save them for anyone who doesn't see this message. Also, bring something to drink.

Lastly, Dunn Brothers has offered to donate some coffee to us for the morning; so a huge thank you to them. (not sure if they will have cups or not, so you might want to bring a travel mug if you have one).
