General Membership June 1, 2013
The MnGCA 2013 Spring Event was held at Mission Township Park, south of Crosslake on June 1, 2013.
Approximately 55 people were in attendance.
Mrs Mizzou called the general meeting to order at 1:45 pm.
Everyone was thanked for attending. Special thanks were given to the Committee and volunteers: Aix Sponsa, MamaDuck-24, Red_Devil35, AerosmithPA, team_geomonkey, Catzilla, VikingNav, butcherandswimmer for the burgers, and PapaDuck-24 for the grilling.
Mrs. Mizzou reminded people that nominations for the 2013-14 board will be opening soon, and encouraged people to think about making themselves available for one of these positions.
Elections will be held at the Fall Event.
Volunteers are being sought for Field Day activities during the 2013 National Tree Farmer Convention on July 27 in the Isanti area. We will have a demonstration booth and will hide some temporary caches so tree farmers can learn about geocaching and try it out for themselves. Contact Mrs. Mizzou or AerosmithPA if you can help out.
The 2013 MnGCA t-shirts are hot off the press and available for purchase from Mrs. Mizzou.
