The Grand Experiment - Geocoin Giveaway

Recommended Posts

Alrighty, my 6 coins have been spoken for. Thanks everyone! Enjoy.

 

Got it last night, thanks! I've updated the database as well. 2 of my packages are in transit and 2 have already arrived (even overseas). Thanks again Go Jaybee and Damenace for all the help :)

OK, so if I get this right, I have to offer up (6) coins to the wild (cachers or caches, hard to say :unsure: ). That sounds like fun. So, I'm posting here, and you can all correct me if I did it wrong. I have (6) coins to send out.

 

Geocoinclub February, Geocoinclub March, and ParentsofSAM are activated and ready to be released to the wild. Someone contact me for those three

 

I have Supercacher Gold, Oakcoins FTF Gold, and Cache the Fever Pewter to send out to three new owners. None of these three are activated. I also signed up at Yahoo, but I'm waiting on the OK from the Mod.

 

SO, let the emails begin. I guess. :unsure:

So, I'm pretty sure I have the proper replies. Hopefully someone will correct me if I'm wrong. The teams that emailed me in order are:

 

Team Sidewinder -- (3) activated coins (I think, waiting on a little clarification :unsure: )

6 Feet More -- First choice of spawner coins (Supercacher, FTF, Cache the Fever)

Windrose -- Second choice of spawner coins (Supercacher, FTF, Cache the Fever)

manchanegra -- Third choice of spawner coins (Supercacher, FTF, Cache the Fever)

 

If Team Sidewinder did indeed want to do my (3) coin release, then you other three need to choose away. If not, I'll update this later. Im on the road today, so be patient :unsure:

Ok, so I'm back. I received word from Team Sidewinder they would indeed be willing to place my three travelers. That should be fun.

 

That leaves three coins (see above) to send out. I need emails from you three for what order you would prefer to receive one of my spawners. I will fulfill the wishes in the order I received the request (same as above). Thanks to everyone who responded.

 

Now, just how do I get into that database? Anyone??? :wacko:

 

****edit

 

Coin 1 (FTF) to 6 Feet More

Coin 2 (Supercacher) to Windrose

Coin 3 ( Cache the Fever) to manchanegra

 

Thanks!

When you get to the Discussion Group Home page....you will see the link to the DataBase at the left of the screen. Then you will see the name of th Database....click on that....add a record...its really easier than you might think.

This is a cool idea and I love to move coins. I have only placed one so far.

Do you have your 100 people yet?

Please let me know. I do have six coins in hand with more to come.

 

Thanks, Nooks

 

PS. I've been caching for a month, but please don't hold that against me!

Well, wev'e finally met a milestone yesterday with the addition of our 100th member (cttcrazy). Now we just have to complete those 100 unique entries in the DataBase.

With all the generosity from the secret santa missions, I think its time to bump this thread back up there.... maybe we can get to that 100 participants soon?

 

 

The "Grand Experiment" has been ongoing for over a year now. Many of the GE coins sent out are still travelling...especially the ones sent overseas. We in the USA should learn something from this. We still need to get our DataBase entries in...gotta start thinking about a design for the "GE" coin soon.

 

 

See the link in my sig line...hope to get some new members soon...considering bumping the qualifying participants up if it works out.

Just wondering if this project was still going on. It seemed like it was working pretty good and maybe there are more people now that would like to join in on it.

TGE-GG Wisconsin Coin was released in January 2006, has gone 26,254 miles and is still on the move!

 

I send 6 coins out into the wild via the great experiment and only one has gone missing.

 

All around a good thing!

All it takes is 6 coins to participate.

 

Here's the scheme: all you coin Owners out there get 3 coins to send to another cacher of your choice, for placing into caches (what a concept, huh?)

 

Then, you give away the next 3 coins to the 1st 3 people that email you with a request....(previous recipipients of your coin are automatically disqualified).

 

Its time for me to send out some more coins...

 

The first three coins will be activated and owned by me.

 

The second batch of three may or may not be trackable and will be random coins of my choice.

 

If you want to be the person to receive and place three coins or one of the three people to receive random coins, send me an e-mail through my profile.

 

Here is the Yahoo Group if you wish to join this great project.

OK, I think we (more or less) have a handle on this. Been to the yahoo group site, signed up and are good to go. Soooo, I need someone to place 3 activated coins for us, they will be-

9/07 geoswag Remember

8/07 geoswag School Bus

7/07 geoswag Celebrate Summer

 

Then we need 3 people to be the receipients of (1 each, unactivated) giveaway coins, you are not supposed to already own this coin. They will be-

 

1st-2007 Evil Micro

2nd- 2006 Canals of Indiana

3rd- Moun10Like

This looks like a very interesting project. Let me see if I have my facts straight on the concept?

 

Person A has 6 coins to go out?

 

Person A sends 3 coins (activated) to Person B to be placed into caches?

 

Person A sends out 3 more coins, 1(unactiveated) to person C, 1 (unactivated) to person D, and 1(unactivated) to person E. (These are the first 3 that email person A)

 

Person B places those 3 coins in cache(s).

 

Person C can choose to keep the coin or replace it with another to be put into a cache. Person C places coin in a cache.

 

Person D can choose to keep the coin or replace it with another to be put into a cache. Person D places coin in a cache.

 

Person E can choose to keep the coin or replace it with another to be put into a cache. Person E places coin in a cache.

 

Tasks are completed?

 

Do I have it right or can someone clarify it for me?

Greetings Fellow Experimenters !!

 

My e-mail crashed and I have lost the addresses of the three people to whomt I am supposed to send individual coins.

 

I mailed the three travelers to Italy but the three who will receive gifts have been lost. I am pretty sure usyoopers is one, but I really really can't remember the other two.

 

So, whoever volunteered, could you please e-mail me and send me your address again.

 

Pretty please.

I'm still willing to be a c,d, or e person if anyone has 6 coins to release? I have a coin I would release if I didn't want to put out the one I received.
