As of this evening, August 3rd, my surfacestations.org project collected it’s 200th volunteer sign-up.
Granted not all of them are actively out there surveying stations, some have done none, others just one, the majority have done 1 station, the station nearest them. and then we have a few power surveyors like Don Kostuch, John Goetz, Kristin Byrnes, Don and Liz Healy, Bob Meyer, Joel McDade, and Russell Steele (our very first volunteer) that have done multiple stations.
My sincere thanks to all of you, novice and seasoned, for helping make this project possible.
We still need volunteers in Florida, Kansas, Nebraska, Illinois, Pennsylvania, and New Mexico. If you live in any of those states, please consider adding your contribution of time and expertise. Just visit the website at www.surfacestations.org to see how.
Shortly, there will be a newsletter and/or message board added to help with support and questions for the project. And in preparation for the project to go global, you’ll see some changes coming soon to support other countries. The photo gallery system already has multilanguage support built in.
Look for other announcements soon. As always, I welcome ideas or suggestions to help make the project better.
