+GEM's Posted December 9, 2005 Share Posted December 9, 2005 Last year the NCCE Conference was in Seattle. We had many cachers volunteer their time to help the 3,500 participants learn how to geocache. This year the conference is in Portland. Hey Portland cachers we need your help? Anyone interested in volunteering at the geocache booth during the conference hours 8 - 4 on 2/8, 9 & 10...Last year we did 4 hour shifts and all volunteer got free admission to the exhibit hall featuring the latest greatest equipment in educational technology. Here's the rough plan...we'll be placing 5 temporary caches in and around the general area of the Oregon Convention Center in downtown Portland located at 777 NE Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. Participants at the conference will stop by the both hoping to win a GPSr..to do so they will have to complete the geocaches to be entered into the drawing. You'll check them out a GPSr and show them how to use it. You'll give the basic Geocaching overview and send them on their way. They will return with the GPS and turn in their ticket for the drawing. We also need help setting up the course and checking it throughout the day. We'll need help programming hte waypoints into the expected 100 GPS units. Are you interested? Can you help? What questions do you have? You can contact me at GEMalone@comcast.net. Quote Link to comment
