I'll handle the ammo can toss and the frozen t-shirt (that's gonna be dependent on the forecast, by the way)

I have the supplies for the GPSr Toss, but will need someone else to handle it as it ends up happening the same time as the Ammo Can Toss.

Hello MAGPI! I'm starting a new geotour called Towns of WV. There will be a cache at every town. (HOPEFULLY) I am looking for people to place them. You can place more than one. Please spread the word so ALL West Virginia cachers know about this tour. By town I mean like Fairmont, Clarksburgh, Morgantown, not brookhaven or white hall. (Not really sure how to post a new topic so this is what I did)

I can supply hamburgers! Will need a rough tally the week of so I can make them.

Also, I have coins I can donate for prizes. How many would you like? 4 or 5?

I can help manning the sign in table, but will have to leave at 1ish to make it to work.
Just let me know how I can help. Also, I can bring firewood for the night before if you would like/need any.

We are still looking for a grill and volunteers to man it.

List updated.
Gentleman-Carpenter +1 have graciously offered to man the grill. (But one more helper would be appreciated.)
But we still NEED a grill.

Also, we are going to again have the Story Time game. So I need 10 volunteers. Each of you will need to PM or email me a question, (and the answer of course). Like last year, this question has to lead to a story about one of your adventures that you would like to share. (Wvcoalcat, if you are willing to play, I already have your question! And you'll love telling the tale.)

I would like to have 10 different players than last year. (If I DO get ten new players then I'm kickin' wvcc to the curb. I can use his question next year.)

I will supply buttons for you to wear that identifies you as a game player.

Alrighty then, who's game?

PS> If you are planning on bringing donations to be given as prizes please PM me. I really need to stop spending $$$. :eek:

I heard that there might be new & larger (charcoal) grills out at Coopers. If that is the case, we could feasibly cook on charcoal IF we light them up as soon as we arrive to set up. I'll try to get up there and check it out.

I've got t-shirts (or will have) for prizes. I'm not PMing you that, because I can't follow directions.

You can use my camping grill. It's about the size of most home grills, holding 10-12 hamburgers.

I'll bring the lettuce, tomato and onions again.
