Help create the Newcomer Bucket Lists Remember when you first got to Camp Humphreys? If you’re typical, you spent the first couple of months just finding your way around, afraid to try something different like riding a Korean subway or visiting someplace in Seoul unless it was part of an organized tour. Now you are getting ready to go somewhere else and regretting the things you never tried. Family & MWR Marketing wants to change all that, but needs your help to make it happen. Our concept is to create three Bucket Lists – 100 Things to Do at Camp Humphreys, 100 Things to Do in Korea and 10 Things to Do in Asia. The Bucket Lists will be printed in a brochure and handed out at Newcomer’s Briefings starting during the upcoming Lunar New Year (don’t worry – you’ll be able to get a copy, too!) Marketing can create the three lists on its own. But we don’t want to do that. We want the lists to reflect those things you discovered during your time in Korea. Send your suggestions to Michael.firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. After we gather all the suggestions, we will have a panel of people go through the lists and pick the Top 100 for all three. So put on your thinking cap and send us your ideas ASAP.
