Friends of Silver Saddle Ranch – GPS Treasure Hunt

I could have used this presentation last Sunday as I decided to wander off trail – not the smartest idea. The Friends of Silver Saddle Ranch will hold a techno Global Positioning System (GPS) basic training event, “Where are you at?”. For fun participants will search for some geocaches at the ranch. If you don’t have a GPS device you can team up with someone who does and discover what this treasure hunt is all about.

WHAT: GPS basic training presentation

WHEN: 9 a.m. Saturday.

WHERE: Meet at the Red House located on the Ranch at Silver Saddle Ranch off of Carson River Road

COST: Free and fun

CONTACT: Call 882-0679 and leave a message.
