    This threads purpose is to set up a "Arkansas ADV Rider Event Schedule 2015" and a "ADV Rider Response" list for people that are interested in participating in "Camp Out Rides" or just camping out. Folks can gather, hang out, do day rides, and organize rides from your location to the campsite location with other riders in your area. The locations were selected with the thought in mind that the sites would alternate from Central Arkansas to NW Arkansas so that everyone would have the opportunity to attend without having to travel a couple of hundred miles to get to the site.

    Check out each site by clicking on the link above and add your name in each individual event (click on buttons on the bottom). If you do not see your name along with your handle please add as the individual sites are editable by anyone who opens the link. If I made an mistake on your name or handle as it appears go ahead and correct it. Please do not edit anyone elses entry other than your own. If the dates shown fit with your schedule enter "YES", "NO", or "MAYBE"as indicated in the example. If it turns out that noone likes the site or cannot make the date we will modify it accordingly. In the "Park Info" column there is a link that has information about each of the camping sites. This is located in the "Event Schedule" as well as each individual site response sheet. Click on buttons at the bottom of the "Event Schedule" to open each specific site and these are editable. Here is where you add your name if you do not see it and your handle and respond to each planned site as to whether you are a "YES", "NO", or "MAYBE".

    Event Schedule: AR ADV Rider Event Schedule 2015

    AR500 2015 Page : AR ADV Rider Event Schedule 2015 - AR500 2015 Click on Park Facilities and the link under that heading and it will take you to Scotty's website where all the ride info for the AR500 will be accessed.

    SLAP 2015 Page : AR ADV Rider Event Schedule 2015 - SLAP 2015
    Click on Slap and the link under that heading will take you to SLAP 2014 thread where all the ride info for SLAP will be accessed.

    I am Google Docs member & signed in. I added my name so I can edit. I still do not see where you want individuals names nor can I get any entries to take my input.

    Could you go first and so we can see what & where we are to add our names and to yes/no/maybe each camp out....

    I watched the help video and everthin.... No joy.....

    Splain please..... :y0!

    Hey Gus,

    Just so you and everyone else knows, the Event Schedule and the SLAP sheets are locked. Only Oleary and I can edit those at the moment. All of the other sheets can be edited by anyone gaining access from the link provided. With that being said, everyone please edit responsibly (BE CAREFULL!). I have a backup if neccessary and will continue to make backups along the way.

    And incase you haven't figured it out yet, the Attendance and Camping columns on the list/sign-up sheets contain drop-down boxes. When you click on a cell in those columns a small arrow will appear at the top-right of the cell. Click on the arrow and a list will appear dispaying Yes/No/Maybe. Just click on the preferred item and it will fill in the blank cell. Or you can just type Yes/No/Maybe into the field directly.

    If anyone wants to add new events/dates just contact Oleary or me and we will add it to the Event Schedule and create a new list/sign-up sheet for it. This is just the start of this proccess, Oleary and I will try to make improvements as we go. Feel free to send us suggestions but please understand the Google Docs is limited on features, but we'll try our best.

    Hopefully this proccess will work to benefit everyone. Enjoy

    Dave

    Hey Doc, what screen resolution are you running? Do you see two buttons just to the right of the Tabs (left arrow button and right arrow button)? If so just us those buttons to scroll left or right to see the rest of the Tabs.

    I just opened the spreadsheet up and noticed that 577 people were viewing it. WOW!

    I did notice that it was running a little slow because of this, so be patient.

    Tried 5 different browsers, can't get past Long Pool in the sign up sheets using the l/r arrow or any other trick I could think of. Maybe Devro or Tim or Dave could check with a different puter than the one used to make the sheet and see if they have the same problems we are having....

    I know nada on Google Docs or spread sheets so do not listen to me.

    I have a Mouse & a Keyboard and I'm not afraid of regretting I used them :baldy

    Ok guys lets see if we can work it out.

    There should only be 6 Tabs showing. "Event Schedule/Petit Jean/White River/S.L.A.P. 2011/Mt. Nebo/Long Pool". Someone had added additional sheets buy clicking on the "+" button to the right of the Tabs. Please do not add additions sheets, or columns to the spreadsheet (let Oleary or I do that). Don't click on the "+" button. I've deleted these addition sheets.

    * If you are running a low screen resolution "1024x768" or lower you will probably see the left & right arrow buttons just to the right of the Tabs (just left of the "+" and "All Sheets" buttons). If you do see the left & right arrow buttons you should be able to use these buttons to scroll the Tabs left or right to see all of Tabs. You can click on the "All Sheets" button (far right from the Tabs) and select the Tab you want to view as well.

    * Try closing the browser and re-loading the spreadsheet. I had to do this a few time while building the spreadsheet. Things would quit working and I would close it out and re-start it and everything would work again.

    * Clear your cache, you can clear your cache simply by holding the "Shift" key while clicking the "Refresh" button on you browser.

    * Try clearing your cookies (not the same as tossing your cookies). Just Google the instructions for deleting cookies for your browser. The proccess for deleting cookies are not the same for all browsers or browser revisions. Some people like to backup their cookies before deleting them but I never do.

    Maybe this helps.

    OK, I got the rest of the sign-up sheets created except the one for November. I don't know what PCC means, Oleary will have to clue me in on that one.

    I believe that is a typo on my part. I hadn't plan to select a camping site for November. I wasn't sure the weather would be good enough plus is kind of a bad time of year with Thanksgiving coming up and all. Just delete that one for now. We can add one later on if there is enough interest. Everyone might be burned out and sick of each other by then and need a break. Just kidding!

    Thanks for all of your help Dave in getting this thing put together as fast as you did. Great job! :norton
