Idea for an Event

Post by NativTxn » Mon Oct 03, 2011 9:21 am

How about doing a "Make Your Own Trackable" Workshop? All you would need is a computer and a printer (a laminator would be a bonus). Have everyone bring an item that they would like to make into a trackable. Introduce everyone to GeoKrety.org. Help them set up an account and make their own trackable and print the tag right there. Explain how to use them in OCNA caches as well as those on other sites - especially geocaching.com since they need the GC code AND the GPS coords.

That sounds like a great idea. I don't have the time for it, but if someone else has one of these, let me know how it goes!

Sounds cool. I'd never thought of an event that would make sense to host at a FedEX/Kinkos. ;)

Seriously, you could find a restaurant near one and then just go over and laminate them. You could even save money by laminating 4 or more on one 8.5x11 sheet. Of course, if someone owns their a laminator, all the better.

I guess you would need a place that has wifi or some other means of accessing the internet.

more and more places are offering wifi and it wouldn't be much effort to bring a laptop and small printer. I think this is a great idea.
