No notes for slide
  • Enter your town or county in the blank before North Carolina Welcome and Introductions 3:00pm – 3:15pm
  • These are the only parts of the handheld participants need to know for THIS training. They may attempt to distract you with other uses, try to maintain focus, answer politely but move on. IMPORTANT items to note: Scroll button: if the screen begins to flip and act erratic, they more than likely are holding the scroll button either up or down. Once released it will take a few seconds to actually stop flipping the screen. Reset button: Like any good Microsoft product these will freeze periodically. If they are indeed frozen, no screen activity, press the reset button with the stylus. Angle of stylus in hand and on screen: These devices have to be “trained” as soon as they come out of the box. The screen is trained for the angle that that person touches the screen therefore if you click something and it opens the wrong thing, it is probably the angle at which you are holding the stylus not the amount of pressure you apply.
  • This slide is for your second or third cache.
  • Type in your coordinates. You’ll want to do at least one cache find before the break and a couple more after lunch.
  • 3:20pm – 4:10pm
  • Mattersofthe heart
