Well, January has come and gone and we welcomed in February with an awesome event.
Lots of folks braved the cold and attended NoVAGO’s Winter Event Groundhog Day at Glen Carlyn.
Big Thanks to Nemo Consequentia and In2Mud for placing caches and to Schwandt and DerekTiffany for bringing in the donuts and drinks.
The new caches include a must do multi Nemo created in under a week. Loved the hike, stages, and little twists and turns along the way. It has been NoVAGO member recommended and is on the bookmark list already ..
All, we need help .. We are looking for people willing to take a couple hours out of a weekend day to teach or assist at a geocaching 101 class. Currently NoVAGO has been asked to support a dozen classes this spring and summer and we need to start planning staff involvement.
These classes are a great way to give back to the community that has allowed our caches to be placed and given us so many hours of enjoyment out on the trails.
Another benefit is if you have High School age kids who are in need of volunteer hours, this is a great chance to participate and log hours. NoVAGO is a non-profit and the classes we are supporting are local nature center and library sponsored events. The hours given can help on that college application or scouting rank you may be working for …
PLEASE PLEASE consider helping out … and let one of the officers know if you can even for only one class …
For the Presenters, powerpoint presentations will be available so there is very little prep work other than looking it over before the class … if you like speaking in front of people or wished you had a chance to improve your communications skills here it is 😉
If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions … please contact myself or one of the officers …
