  1. Ok, I've got the initial OK from Special Olympics New York's main office. Looks like I will be doing a trackable coin.


    If any vendors on here would be willing to cut a non-profit a break on the cost please send me a PM.


    I'm hoping to get an artist friend to do the design but if he is not able then I could use an artists help too!



  2. Good idea for a coin. Obviously you'd need the authorization of Special Olympics if you are going to use their logo on the coin. I don't think there would be any problem with it from geocaching.com's standpoint but all designs (if trackable) are approved for various reasons - family friendliness being a big one.


    Personally, I prefer trackable coins and in your situation I think there is the added benefit of that making it possible and likely that the coins would be sent out to travel and bring further awareness to your cause.


    As for specific vendors, I think your best bet would be to approach as many as you can and see who can work out the best deal for you.


    Good luck and I can't wait to see the finished coins! :blink:


    Thanks, I kind of hope the idea would spread to the other regions in the State. We have 9 regions in the State. All the Regions only get together a few times a year which be a great way to exchange coins!

  3. Hi all,


    I'd like to create a Geocoin as a fundraiser for our local Special Olympics group. Is there anything in the GC guidelines that would prevent this or any steps I need to be sure I go through?


    Does it make a difference if the coin is trackable vs non-trackable?


    From a collector standpoint, do you prefer trackable over non-trackable?


    Does anyone know of a coin maker who would give a non-profit a break on the price of coin pricing?





  4. I just noticed that on my Nuvi 265WT that found cache icons are staying on the map even though I've updated from a PQ of "Caches Not Found By Me".


    The cache icon is there along with its GC number but if I search for the GC# no cache info page is found on the Nuvi.


    Its very likely this is something I'm doing wrong with the macro or GSAK, just not sure what it is.


    I apologize if this had been asked before. I'll confess I didn't read all 18 pages of this thread.



  5. I live just south of the Canadian Border. When I search for caches near my home coords I get alot of Canadian caches. I'd like to filter them out for 2 reasons:


    1) Crossing the border is a hassle

    2) Alot of them are in French which I don't read or write!


    Is it possible to filter them out?





  6. I was driving home from the Bronx yesterday on the Turnpike. As I was approaching New Brunswick I saw what looked like an abandoned ship. It was quite large. I could only see the top. Looks like it has been there for many years.


    Anyone know what I'm talking about? I did a quick glance at WeirdNJ.com but didn't see it.
