The Board received the following request for volunteer help:

Quote:
I teach 7th grade geography in Duluth, and would like to spend some time the last week of school (June 4-6) teaching the students how to geocache. I am looking for volunteers to bring their own GPS, who would be willing to teach small groups how to use it, and about geocaching, and then set up a cache with clues, for students to find. If time, you could help them set up a cache for another group. I'm at Woodland Middle School, so there are plenty of places, including our woods, to set up. I'm hoping to get enough volunteers so that I can have you work with groups of 4 or less. Here's how many people I'd need at these times: 8:15-9:00am--9 or ten volunteers; 10:45-11:30am--5 or 6. It would be great if you could coordinate the cache and clues.

I could help out on one of the days and could help set up ... I sent her an email re: my interest.

I got a hold of the teacher and have it set up for Tuesday, June 5th in the morning. If you are able to help out that morning, let me know.

Also, I'm going to try to get ahold of the 4H to see if we can use their GPS's for the day.

I obtained the use of the 4H GPS's and posted it as an event to entice others to gain a smiley...let me know if you have questions:
