The board received the following request.

I'm looking for someone to teach a class about Geocaching , possibly an
Intro to Geocaching or a very basic "cache" event in Sauk Rapids, MN
located near St. Cloud and am wondering who I could contact. I can be
reached at 320-258-1577 or email: kari.schugel@isd47.org

Is there anyone in the Sauk Rapids/St Cloud area that would be willing to help?

MNBRAD or Kurt Frank I believe are both in the area. That would be a good start for contacts.

I could help if the class is in the evening or weekend. Other cachers in the area that may be able to help are Jam3s, Squatchmeb, Kurt Franke, and Rainmaker29. It really depends on the time for me.

That would be good BRL. Could you contact Kari and some of the other area cachers. That would be great!

I will make the contact to see what else I can find out. Not sure I will be available to do it but I will try to list the information here.

I just spoke with Kari from Sauk Rapids/Rice ISD47 Community Ed. She is looking for a class on Geocaching, sometime in May. It should probably be some classroom presentation and then perhaps some local caches, temps perhaps.

It would be up to the presenters to pick the date/time. ISD47 will provide the classroom space. She would like to have the date picked by the week in order to publish in the Community Ed book they send out.

I would be willing if there is anyone else available to help out.

Talked to Rainmaker29 and Jam3s tonight at a cache and they seemed willing. I've done a community ed class in Foley before. Just depends on the weekend in May for me to help.

I've taught courses in my home town before; I don't think I can show up to help, but let me know if I can offer you any planning help, or suggestions, advice or anything.

I will pick a date in May and give her a call back. Hoping some of you guys can make it. I am willing but don't want to take it on all by myself.

Would a Saturday be best?

Kurt

I presented a class for the people I work with and have a nifty Powerpoint presentation that I can share. It includes basic information and photos, but they can easily be substituted for your own - it would be a start for someone if they don't have a PowerPoint yet, or heck, I'm in Minneapolis, I'd love to do a basic class in Sauk Rapids. Anyway, let me know if you want to use it - Brooklyn51@aol.com

You may want to consider putting it somewhere that people can get to it and posting a link to it...
