6038Re: [NUTS] What to do?
- Nov 29, 2010For whatever type of GPSr is or maybe donated, the Boy Scout's Geocaching merit badge requires the scout to mark a waypoint, compare the accuracy of WGS84 and UTM coordinates systems, and to set up a course that makes use of at least 4 waypoints. The Geomate.jr. only allows for one waypoint, based on the specifications.
I am a Geocaching merit bade counselor and I am working with my first group of scouts. Between the three GPSrs that I own, and a few others that are owned by other family members, we haven't been lacking for GPSrs. Our unit may be unique, but I wouldn't count on that.

I'm all in favor of helping organizations by donating items such as others AND with the geomate.jr but....... I'm also in favor of a major N.U.T.S. event. It's been far too long since there was a major get together. We could be generous with ourselves as well. A big Christmas meet might be good. I can remember a nice event in Oroville one Christmas. Just my 2¢ worth.

I agree with that sentiment, we want as many people using them as possible.
At the same time, I think the money could be used to buy several lesser units,
such as the Gecko to make the money stretch as much as it can.
