The WGA is looking for somebodies to work with Ken Braband at the Gathering Waters Festival in June. Duties would include working with Ken to co-chair the geocaching display tent/booth, work out the presentation logistics (WGA will assist with resources), Set-up and Break-down of the booth.

If interested, please post here or PM me.
Please let me know if there are any questions and I will get you answers.
We could easily use several people to man the booth throughout the day.

Thank you for considering to assist.

Here's some "spin" that might help:

Check out the GATHERING WATERS FESTIVAL on Milwaukee's lakefront at Lakeshore State Park
- Saturday June 11- 11AM to 6PM
- A National GET OUTDOORS DAY Event!
- A FREE event including:
•Canoe and Kayak Demos with Laacke & Joys
•Rock Wall Climbing
•Fishing
•Bike Village – Bike Tour from Miller Park
•Boat Rides & Tours
•Water Sports Demos
•Visits from Professional Athletes
•Landscaping Demos
•Water & Wellness Exhibits
•Park Passport with Big Door Prizes
•The best in local music, with food & beverages available
•Geocaching booth/tent (The WGA is an event partner!)

We need volunteers to work with Ken Braband in helping with the geocaching booth, including setting up/take down of the booth. Now's your chance! Ken is the cache owner of the oldest geocache in the state (GC3B1 Powder Pike Hike) from way back in 2001, is a founder of the Wisconsin Geocaching Association, and was the first president of the WGA. Opportunities like this only come by once a year (during the annual Gathering Waters Festival). Cool

Have YOU found the four caches located in this lakefront park?

That looks so fun! Unfortunately, we will be out of town that weekend. We'll be heading to Iowa so we can add another state to our caching map.

And YES, I have found all the caches at Lakeshore Park, as well as every other cache within 5 miles of the park. I'm now planning other places to put caches so more people will come into the city to cache.

(I've heard a rumor that Boyd and Boydina will have their much anticipated (re)union early this summer...!)

fantastic!! I will pass this on to Ken so he can contact you all.

by no means, does this mean that others can't join in! Keep posting if you want to help out.

Thanks for stepping up on this. It should be a fun time.

Great! Thanks for offering to help. I'll be there to get things set up but I'll need your help to staff the tent during the event because I will be volunteering over at the beach with Laacke & Joy's kayak and canoe demos. I'll be in touch soon with Hack1of2 and Beezers, and I look forward to meeting you. Anyone else able to help? It's a lot of fun.
Ken
