    Requirement 7 differs from what is currently posted

    The official requirements are available on a link at:

    A quick scan shows that there is bit more to requirement 7 than what is listed here - you need ot choose one of the caches and find it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Mmontes (talkcontribs) 30 April, 2010. (Please, sign and date your posts on talk pages.)

    I made the change based on the official BSA reference you provided. Thank you for pointing this out!RWSmith (Bureaucrat), 19:30, May 1, 2010 (EDT)

    Geocaching MB worksheet

    I have created a Geocaching worksheet for scouters to use. How do i upload it to the Geocaching page? I do not understand the directions, or it does not allow me to upload.--Soberholt 12:55, May 3, 2010 (EDT)

    Send it to me via e-mail so I can see why the system is refusing the file. (I'll send you an e-mail to which you can reply and attach the file.) —RWSmith (Bureaucrat), 13:29, May 3, 2010 (EDT)
    Thanks, I'll do it this evening.--Soberholt 13:58, May 3, 2010 (EDT)
    Great! —RWSmith (Bureaucrat), 14:07, May 3, 2010 (EDT)

    Geocaching Requirement 5 d Resource

    I located what I think is a good link to do a hands on lesson in UTM and exercise demonstrating to Scouts how to locate UTM coordinates. I pulled down a UTM exercise (one requirement for Geocaching is to review the UTM coordinate system). Here is the link to the exercise:

    Two notes on the UTM exercise 1) For the UTM grid tool -I took a 'resourceful' approach -I printed a UTM Grid on paper (same scale), got plastic report presentation covers and just traced it -then the Scouts could place that on top of the UTM exercise paper and work on mapping the locations. 2) On the UTM Exercise itself, the answer key -I think the first set of coordinates is mapped wrong -the ones 943 265 -but then again I am not an expert on UTM. .--JSturgis 06:00, July 30, 2010 (CST)
