Cabelas Volunteers Needed!

Cabelas has asked us to set up an information booth/table at their annual Spring Sale. The sale is March 16-17 and 23-24th.

We need volunteers to represent Geocaching and the MBGA to work a 3 hour shift at the booth.

What day? Currently, we have March 16th filled up. We are looking to fill up Saturday, March 23rd. We will not maintain a booth on the two Sundays.

Will there be a Geo-event published?
