|The MnGCA received the following communication:
"Douglas County Pheasants Forever and Viking Sportsmen are holding a Youth Outdoor Activity Day. The event is 11-4 on Sunday August 24, at the Alex Shooting Park in Alexandria, MN. The event will focus on outdoor
activities for kids and it is a free event. Lunch will be provided and
Tshirts given to the kids. We anticipate 200-500 kids. Adults are
strongly urged to bring kids (neighbors, friends, etc) that would like a
chance to experience outdoor activities including shooting sports, archery,
orienteering, geocaching, fishing related activities, and other fun things
to do in the outdoors. The event will feature many conservation
organizations and outdoor related businesses. As mentioned, it is a totally
free event for kids. It is also free for organizations and companies that
put on an activity, but a free will offering to offset our costs would be
appreciated. There is no direct selling, but soft marketing is encouraged
(ie brochures on tables, signage, etc). Each org or company must do some
type of outdoor related activity for kids."
After further communication with the group, what they are looking for/what I think we could provide specifically is:
A booth explaining geocaching
Instructions on the game
gps unit loaners
volunteers to guide families on demonstration caches
Douglas County PF encourages us to advertise our organization and they do provide lunch.
Please let me know if you are able/interested in helping out, either by replying to this post or emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd be thrilled to set up a team to work this project.
