- What, you aren't taking your Juniors to the Expo to let Doc Geo teach them instead? I might do that with my Brownies, if any are available at short notice.....HeatherRonin's Gal----- Original Message -----From: Kevin (KoosKoos)Sent: Tuesday, October 02, 2007 7:46 AMSubject: [SPAM] Re: [CentralTexasGeocachers] Geocaching tent at TPWD Wildlife Expo, Oct.13-14
And the San Angelo trip sounds like a blast too...Nothing says fun like camping with Mrs. Captain Picard and grabbing some caches....there's always the chance she'll pack the grass skirts for an impromptu hula competition for all attendees!
Unfortunately, I'll be helping lead a Girl Scout campout that weekend and can't make it. :(
However, one of our activities WILL be teaching a bunch of 4th graders about geocaching!!

Hey! That leaves the 13/14th open, so people can come to my San Angelo camping event and get … a SMILEY!
(And have fun camping and caching, too, I'm sure.)

Thanks for organizing this!

For those who aren't aware of it, the Texas Parks & Wildlife Dept. holds a Wildlife Expo every year on the grounds of the department headquarters. This year they have asked for someone to run a geocaching tent and I have volunteered to do so. I have organized it so
that I can do it all myself if necessary and it can grow as needed. Here are the basics:
(Times are for both Saturday and Sunday)
9:30 - 9:45 Classroom
9:45 - 10:15 Geocache hunt
10:30 - 10:45 Classroom
10:45 - 11:15 Geocache hunt
11:30 - 11:45 Classroom
11:45 - 12:15 Geocache hunt
12:30 - 1:30 Lunch break
1:30 - 1:45 Classroom
1:45 - 2:15 Geocache hunt
2:30 - 2:45 Classroom
2:45 - 3:15 Geocache hunt
3:30 - 3:45 Classroom
3:45 - 4:15 Geocache hunt
Class will cover:
Steps to Geocaching:
Step 1: Setting up your Geocaching.com account
Step 2: Picking out your first cache to hunt
Step 3: Getting coordinates into your GPS
Step 4: Getting to the cache
Step 5: The search
Step 6: The find
Step 7: Logging your find online
I am asking for volunteers to help out. Like I said,. I can certainly do it all by myself or I would not have volunteered, but if anyone would like to help out by covering a class or taking a group into the field after the class or both, feel free to pick a date and time from the above schedule - as much or as little as you want. You can also just sit at the tent and answer questions while I take visitors out to find caches... And if you just want to come by and visit, then by all means do! One thing I could really use are some camoflaged containers, for table display, to give visitors an idea of the variety of containers that are used.
And no, Julie, you don't get smilies for attending, volunteering or finding any of the caches that are meant for the visitors... :-)
Location of the geocaching tent is N 30 11.569 W 097 42.814
