Looking for a couple volunteers to help me Saturday morning at the cache bash event with a Beginner Geocaching Class.

I'll be leading a training cache hunt exercise following a presentation and it would work best if we can split up the attendees into some smaller groups led by multiple people. That way hopefully no one will have to wait to go out and hunt a cache.

You won't need to speak in front of a large audience just hunt a cache with some attendees. Give a few pointers, answer questions, etc.

If you can be at the park between 9 and 10:30 and would like to help out, just let me know here or via a private message.

Thanks!

Post moved to announcements thread to get a bit more attention.

I have one volunteer so far. Many hands make light work!

I'm up for it if you still need help.

Awesome, thanks!!!

For anyone helping with this effort, please be at the park by 9 (at the latest) so we can prepare. I will be there earlier to hide some caches to find and hopefully setup some "loaner" GPS units.

What I saw last time is the "students" had GPS units for the most part as they were at the event to geocache (some had nav units (nuvi, tom-tom) last time I did this.

Probably get some who have cached only with a smart-phone. Not sure how I would be able to show them how to use a smart-phone to find a non-published geo-cache... Maybe if we have that scenario we force them to experience using a loaner (actual) GPS to find the cache. Lesson is the same really. And we could talk about the differences between the phone and the GPS. I have some experience with this now that I have tried my Iphone a couple times.

I can do a short LNT talk if you would like for this. I will be at my LNT Booth during the Classes.
