Details of Event:

Thank you for those who came to help out with Preliminary Rounds! Your help was crucial to make it a smooth and successful event.

Those who could not make it for the Prelims, but would like to help out, here's one more event that's coming up -- Geotrail and Grand Finals!

Station Masters/Ushers needed

Geo-Trail and Finals - 3rd April 2010, Saturday, 8am - 3pm

The Geo-Trail competition is an island-wide contest, which involves teams embarking on a trail of adventure to various parts of Singapore. Teams will set off from Ministry of Water, Environment and Resources Auditorium this year and must return to the end point (NUS) after visiting various stations at meaningful locations in Singapore. To clear each station, participants will need to apply geographical concepts and map interpretation skills. The teams will also be observing sustainable spaces in Singapore and are required to resolve questions independently and critically.

We will be needing Station Masters to be stationed at the various locations around Singapore to facilitate the completion of tasks by the schools that report there. This is when we will need you to commit to:

- Attend a pre-Dry Run briefing on the 26/03/10 Friday [TBC if necessary]
- Attend GeoTrail Dry Run on 27/03/10 morning [approx 0800 - 1700]
- Attend a preparation meeting on either 01/04/10 [before/after technical run at MEWR auditorium] or 02/04/10 (Good Friday)
- Be there on the actual day 03/04/10 [approx 0800 - 1600]

CCA points will be allocated. But it's not all about points, it's about the friendships forged and the memories you'll get out of participating in NUS GC!
