Just wanted to post a huge thank you to the BCGA for the use of the GPS units earlier this month.
I taught a group of students at Citadel Middle School all about Geocaching.
It was a fantastic afternoon with the kids finding 10 caches in their huge playground/ field after a power point presentation on geocaching.
I hide 10 cool caches from fake rocks to bolts to a gravestone cache with a puzzle piece inside so they had to find all 10 to solve the "puzzle" which was cookies hidden in their classroom.

It was so much better using 10 identical GPS units. Kids sure are techno savvy these days. Most of them were out and finding caches before I had even half finished the "How to use the GPS" talk !

The kids loved it and all talked about getting their families out caching !

Thank you again BCGA for all you do for Geocaching in BC.

Very Happy

I'm really glad that wildbeanz started this thread because the membership should know what a great resource the GPS units have become.

Ms. Tulameen Turtle also headed a group caching experience for 8 to 11 year olds last Monday. I helped out in the background and round up portion of the event at Blue Mountain Park. The BCGA provided the GPS units which two kids could share while on the hunt. The GPS units were instrumental in making it a very positive experience for the kids -- even if we did get caught in the snow.

Thanks to the BCGA for allowing us to use the GPSr's.

It's great to see that the BCGA GPS units are being well used!
My question is....does the BCGA get any rental fees from lending out those GPS units?

Last year, we didn't collect any fees from renting the units out as all of the renters were running not-for-profit events (there was no charge for people to attend the events). If there had been a for-profit event, then we would have collected a nominal fee from the renter.

Same is being applied this year.
