Purpose of Georgia Council of the Blind
The Georgia Council of the Blind is a non-profit
consumer organization affiliated with the American
Council of the Blind. We strive to elevate the social, economic, and
cultural levels of the blind. For over 40 years, GCB has been working toward
providing a forum for views of the blind, improving education and
rehabilitation, and broadening vocational opportunities for the visually
impaired. Peer support is an important part of GCB as it encourages and
assists the blind in developing their abilities and potential to become
independent and responsible citizens in their communities. Peer support is
especially helpful for the newly blind who may be confused or bitter. GCB
works hard to educate the public about the problems of blindness and the needs
and capabilities of the blind. Cooperation with the public and private
institutions and agencies for the blind is encouraged. G C B holds a convention
each year at different locations throughout the state. This event offers timely

(This is one Ann
Sims gave to me during the 1 day event, I’ve adapted it a little)
Four campers need
to cross a rickety rope bridge to get back to their camp at night.
Unfortunately, they only have one flashlight and it only has enough light left
for seventeen minutes. The bridge is too dangerous to cross without a
flashlight, and it’s only strong enough to support two campers at any given
Each of the campers
walks at a different speed. Abe can cross the bridge in 1 minute, Ben in 2
minutes, Cal in 5 minutes, and the slowest, Dan, takes 10 minutes to cross. How
can the campers make it across in exactly 17 minutes?
