GeoWoodstock Volunteer Opportunities!
Our fellow Hoosiers who are planning this event are going to need a few hundred volunteers to help on the day of the event. Volunteers will have several different types of volunteer shifts and they will be 1.5-2 hours l, so that you have plenty of time to see the rest of the day. If you're interested in helping volunteer, there is a list of volunteer opportunities and time slots at http://geowoodstock.com/gws10/volunteer.php
A few people asked me to setup a Facebook group, so that people could meet, share and discuss geocaching stuff on Facebook. Our Facebook Page that we've had going has been great for announcements, but not informal discussions. Use it to ask for hints on caches you can't find or see if anyone's interested in going geocaching sometime with you. It is intended to be more social than what we have here on our e-mail list. So here it is: http://www.facebook.com/groups/133110390112003/
Feel free to join if you're interested.
Hope to see you at an upcoming event! Let me know if you have any questions!
