Please post a "Will Attend" log on this event page to stay appraised of the final details. If we need to make any announcements about this event, all registered attendees will automatically receive an email copy of those announcements via the email you have registered with your account. Adding a "Will Attend" log to this page will also assure enough hard copy handouts are printed for the event participants.

Please arrive on time so upfront administrative details can be handled and announcements made, allowing the course content to start precisely at 7:00 p.m. (or 1900hrs if you prefer). Also, please bring your favorite nonalcoholic beverage and favorite dessert to share with your fellow cachers.

There will be a free-will offering cache container at the event to help defray the costs of hosting these FUNdamentals events if you would like to make a donation. The GeAK Store will be available onsite immediately before and after the presentation. You may purchase items from our line of GxProxy gear as well as official GroundSpeak merchandise. The brand new GeocacheAlaska! Jade Geocoins will also be available along with the new GeAK PathTag which has just been printed in limited quantity.

If you would like to host future presentations like this one elsewhere in Alaska, please contact Education Committee Chair & GeAK WebMaster, SSO JOAT.
