When: Saturday, July 16, 2016, 11am - 3:30pm

See GC6K27Z for more information and to post your "Will Attend" log.
This is a potluck event, so bring your own meat, your favorite side dishes, desserts and drinks to share with you fellow cachers. SLAGA provides the charcoal, paper plates and napkins, plastic utensils as well as normal picnic items. If you feel something else is needed, please feel free to bring it along to share.
This is also a true meet and greet, so there are no awards or planned activities, unless someone would like to volunteer to take on a game, a silent auction or a travel bug table.

Time to start nominating capable people to run for office on the SLAGA board. If you believe that you or someone you know would make an excellent SLAGA president, vice president, secretary or treasurer, then login to your account and submit your nomination before the Summer Picnic. The nomination page can be accessed by clicking on the SLAGA Officer(s) Nominations link in the gray "User Menu" box along the right side of the home page.
Once all of the nominations are gathered, they will be organized into a ballot that will be sent to our members at the email address associated with their SLAGA.org account. Only one ballet will be emailed per Slaga account. Completed ballots must then be emailed back by August 31st in order to be counted. Next year's board will be officially announced at the Fall Picnic.

SLAGA’S “JUST THE BASICS’ GSAK CLASS, 1/7/16

What better way to start the New Year than to dive into GSAK. SLAGA’s Basic class was a tremendous success with over 30 cachers of all levels in attendance. Everyone learned new “tricks” that will ensure 2016 is their best year.
Kid Dylan, forever the math whiz, calculated that the total caches found by all attendees was 103,881. GSAK can’t be in better hands. Listen to just a few of the many positive logs.
Curious GEOrge3: A BIG Thank You to Major134 and Brantole. The course documentation with "by the numbers" instruction that included screen shots with red ellipses and arrows was incredibly helpful to me. I went through it several times prior to the class. I wouldn't have even tried GSAK without a class like this. Thanks again.
Kid Dylan: I want to award a fave, nothing short of awesome. thanks loads to everyone, especially the Major & brantole!!! great job
Mean Gene: I use GSAK a lot but still learned things I did not know. Thanks Major134 and Brantole for hosting this class and the professional looking handouts.
