To be honest there would be plenty of enthusiasm for GeoWoodstock to be in Arkansas, but there would have to be volunteers to work. My experience in the past in every organization I have been involved in there is a group of people who are always willing to help and get things done while there are others who are always saying the way things need to be done. ArkGeo is no different. People would have to not just talk about hosting it and saying how they think it should be done they would have to volunteer to work.D. Sufficient volunteers to staff event.
How can ArkGeo began to really work toward hosting GeoWoodstock? I think that all of the members need to start by volunteering for a committee and then not only be on the committee, but be active. I have to confess as a member of ArkGeo and as past president I have been guilty of not stepping up and doing all the things I should have done, but remember this is for FUN. Life and family comes first, so there are times that some could not help. That's why we need to grow our membership to have a larger group to work on committees and then when someone can't help maybe someone else can.
How do we grow our membership? This has been the timeless question for the board in the past. Each and everyone of us can still geocache without being a member of ArkGeo. ArkGeo in the past has worked to promote geocaching in Arkansas and worked with various agencies (Arkansas State Parks, Arkansas Game and Fish, etc.). There is a need for ArkGeo in Arkansas even if we all don't realize it. Without ArkGeo geocaches might have been banned in Arkansas State Parks. ArkGeo is not just a place to talk about it, but do it.
I challenge myself and everyone else to volunteer to do what you can for ArkGeo and help out with committees and events, then maybe we can start working to host GeoWoodstock in Arkansas.
