We’ve got some amusement lined up for the Spring Virtual Meeting that we think you’ll find fairly low-effort (because let’s be honest, we’re all a bit spent), but will give everyone a chance to get to know people and win some prizes.
Our first game will be “3 Truths and a Lie” featuring some fun facts about our WLIA Board Members and Platinum Sponsor celebrities. Your job is to pick the lie out of the four facts we give you for each person. Watch for a Survey123 link to enter the week of May 3rd when we kick off with SIG Week. The survey will close at 10 AM, May 13th and we’ll reveal the answers and winners during the Lunch Gab at 12-1 pm that day. We can’t wait to hear a few stories behind some of the answers!
Our second activity is the “Monumental Fun with WLIA” photo contest happening throughout the entire May series. We’ll send out a map link for you to enter a selfie next to your favorite survey monument, and if you happen to be in your WLIA gear, you’ll get an extra entry! (What, you don’t have any? Visit our Amazon store to rectify that situation!)
If you don’t know where your closest monument is, visit the PLSS Finder website hosted by the Wisconsin State Cartographer’s Office. Remember kids, don’t trespass on private property and be careful if your favorite monument is in the middle of the road. We’re not requiring that you stand directly on the monument if it’s not safe. All entries will be entered into a random drawing.
Our last activity involves our mascot. Did you know our map pin logo has a name? It’s Rosie, named after the official headquarters of WLIA in Wild Rose, Wisconsin! Now that you know that piece of trivia, be on the lookout. Hidden somewhere on a slide of three different WLIA Spring Virtual presenters will be the Spring Virtual logo featuring Rosie in a field of flowers. Watch for a Survey123 link to enter your name, e-mail, and where you saw Rosie to be entered into a drawing!
