This is Not a One-Day Evaluation: Sat, Sep 19

Due to travel restrictions, we have postponed our fall Track and Sign Evaluation with Marcus Reynerson until next year. With the eval postponed, we are running "This is Not a One-Day Evaluation" in it's place.

Grab your favorite face covering and join us at Ft Snelling State Park this Saturday, September 19, for an outing in the model and spirit of a CyberTracker Evaluation. This is a great opportunity to learn about the evaluation process and to help prepare for the evaluations we plan to host next year. If you are not familiar with the CyberTracker evaluation, you can read all about it here. As with standard CyberTracker Evaluations, no prior training is required to participate in this club event.

Since This is Not a One-Day Evaluation, we will be in the field longer than a typical tracking club. Here is the schedule:

We will gather outside the Ft Snelling Visitor Center at 9:00am
We will spend the majority of the day in the field, eating lunch while out on trail
We plan to wrap up at approximately 4:30pm

One-Day CyberTracker evaluations are composed entirely of 1-point questions. Since This is Not a One-Day Evaluation, questions will include a mixture of difficulty, roughly comparable to 1-point, 2-point and 3-point questions. At the end of the day, we will go through the CyberTracker scoring system and give you a chance to calculate a mock "score" of your own.

Finally, since This is Not a One-Day Evaluation we are not limited to just 10 participants, and registration is not required. That said, it will help to know if you are coming. To RSVP, either:

What to Bring

  • A notebook and pencil
  • Water, snacks and lunch for a full day in the field
  • Bug repellent and sun protection, as needed
  • And, as with all Tracking Club gatherings, please wear a mask and plan to practice physical distancing as much as feasible.

I hope you can join us. And remember, This is Not a One-Day Evaluation.
