Okay.  I owe an apology.  I haven’t been on here in at least three weeks.  There is a reason and hopefully some understanding.

First, I promised an update on the February results by March 20th, explaining that there was a late change in a volunteer’s ability to update and we were compensating.  Thankfully, I had the results done that weekend even though I was traveling to visit family/get dental work done/using a really slow connection.  Unfortunately for all of you, I also came down with a cold that sapped a lot of energy and had me in bed for most of the following day, and I was traveling the following two days.  Hence why the points weren’t updated that weekend as promised.  I didn’t realize that I had missed putting up the completed stats until the end of last week as the March data started rolling in.  And why is that?…

I am about to hit MAP testing.  For those who aren’t teachers or have kids currently in school, it’s a big standardized test.  Every school has a version of it, and I have been working in overdrive at work to get my students ready for it by finishing my curriculum (by the way, I finished my entire year’s curriculum last week…I have two months to explore topics…including using GPS in the classroom!)  Between that and MAP testing starting tomorrow, my school workload begins to slow.  This allows me more time after work (I’ve had at least three days in the last three weeks where I have been at work past 8 PM…I leave for work at 6:30 AM).  This has kept me from a lot of stuff I’d like to do.

About the April Bonus Goals…it is now posted.  I just plain forgot about it as I prepared for a trip this last weekend.  In fact, due to the nature of the planned goals for May, I have posted both April and May goals together. A special bonus goal has been planned for May. I will also put word out that one of the bonus goals for July involves GeoWoodstock (with another special extra goal attached), so be prepared for that.

I know some people have been looking for info on here and I apologize.  Remember that when a points update is done, you will see an announcement on the main page.  Watch for that.  If you have signed up for the subscription link at the top of the right-hand column of information on any page, you will receive an e-mail when something is posted on this site.  I currently have April results from seven of the 11 different data sets/volunteers.

Again, I apologize for the lack of news on my end and missing the points update for April.  If there is ever a moment in the future where people have questions and I seem to be missing, the absolute guaranteed way to catch my attention is to send me an e-mail.  Just go to my Geocaching Profile and send me one.   HA HA…send me another one if you don’t hear from me by that evening.
