I know, we finally get warm weather and I'm already talking about fall. But the Fall Event is coming up quickly and we need some volunteers to make it a fabulous event.

There are several areas where you can help . . . scouting a location, planning events for the day, creating new games to keep everyone entertained, hiding caches for the kids, even manning the grill.

So volunteer today . . . before I start drafting people! Wink

I am assuming that we are looking at a venue in the seven-county metro area?

Correct, the Fall Event is held in or near the Metro area to be sure we have enough members voting to meet our legal requirements.

The date for the Fall Event is usually late September/early October, but is selected by the Committee and approved by the Board.

Two potential parks would be Cleary Lake Regional Park or Murphy-Hanrehan Park Reserve.

I am rather fond of Lebanon Hills, even though they don't like coffins hidden in their parks. I know they're more open to events than in years past, at least that's their claim.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but both Cleary Lake and Lebanon Hills have better accommodations for grilling and group events. Murphy Hanrehan doesn't have any of that, at least from what I've seen.

All 3 parks have numerous caches for everyone to find, which is what we're really there for Smile

My vote is for Lebanon Hills.

We are getting quite a committee here: Boreal Walker, bflentje, and BigChiefS4! Who else is ready to join this awesome group?

As a side note: we tried to work things out with Lebanon Hills last year, but the dates just didn't work. The earlier you guys get moving on this the better!

PapaDuck and I will be glad to help out.

(We have the Kids Kaches, Check-in Desk materials, papergoods (plates, napkins, cups, plasticware) and signage tucked away in the GeoMobile)

Tho' we would not be available if the event is held on October 19th. (MEA weekend)

Unfortunately, my contact at Dakota County left the park system. But if the MNGCA does arrange to have it at LH, I'd volunteer to help in other lower profile areas.

Ditto for me. No MEA weekend availability.
